Photo – Nature – Everyday Life



Autumn leaves

The winter is just around the corner and to day it was raining and snowing at the same time. The leaves has turned brown and fallen to the ground and left the forest quite colorless. But soon white snow will cover the ground and lighten up the surroundings. Today I celebrate the weekend with some colorful autumn leaves.

Have a lovely weekend!

At the moment I am working on a photo challenge I find quite difficult: LANDSCAPE….

Well, there are no problem to find a beautiful landscape but my challenge is to make it interesting… I have taken a lot of images but I am not sure if I am finished yet. Today I went to Vollen to practice. Not an easy task since it was a very foggy day. Maybe some of the photos are OK but I need to take a closer look and do some editing…

Meanwhile, todays post are three pictures from late autumn and early winter. I hope you enjoy them and probably I will post some landscapes later 😉

Have a nice week!

Color bomb

Photo challenge is fun and it forces you to think out of the box and it also makes you improve as a photographer. I love macro photography and this challenge came when the nature was dressed in it´s most beautiful colors, so I tried to take colorful macro pictures of leafs. Here are some examples:

When this challenge was on I went up in the mountains at Ble with my friend Ellen, I hoped for some beautiful autumn colors. Well, on saturday morning we woke up and it was snowing outside. But I found some color bombs anyway, vibrant red lingonberries with snow (the same picture as the one I posted last week in “Snow – winter is on a visit”). To make the berries act more like a “bomb” of color I removed any color in the picture except red (in Lightroom). Here´s the result:


Next months challenge is “bokeh” and at this moment I have no idea how to solve that challenge yet 🙂


Autumn leafs and a flower

Taking a walk with my dog Charlie in my neighbourhood  I will always bring my camera. I am not very fond of the wintertime because of all the darkness. Photography brings me so much joy so whenever I can I take the camera with me even on small walks. During the darkest winter there is not enough light for photography so I have to take a lot of pictures now and save them for editing during winter. Well, on some days I will take pictures during winter too but time with enough light is limited her in Norway in November to January 🙂

Here are some pictures from my neighborhood, shot the last week. Please enjoy! 🙂

October snow

This weekend I went up to the mountain together with my friend Ellen and our two dogs. When we woke up on saturday it was snowing. So winter is just around the corner.

Here´s a picture from my saturday morning walk. I will present more pictures from my mountain trip in the coming days 🙂



October has arrived and autumn is here. The leaves are colorful and some of them are slowly dying, drying out turning black and curly. Although it is sad it is a beautiful sight.
