Mini trip to Amsterdam

I loved Amsterdam. It is a wonderful city and it is perfect for me because I am not very fond of going to different museums and other tourist attractions. My favorite thing to do is walking around and watch everyday life, relaxing on a little cafe and admire the architecture. Her are a few pictures from my mini trip to Amsterdam.

Amsterdam – bicycle

Visiting Amsterdam was fun. In Norway people use their bike for training and they have new fancy bikes. In Amsterdam the bikes are used for transportation and the bikes look quite old fashioned and they are so cool. The bikes are like jewelry and creates aesthetic scenes in the city.

Have a nice week!

 

Spring took a break

This Easter was rather cold and the weather certainly did not give the expected feeling of spring. Spring took a break and winter came on a visit.

Yesterday we went for a walk in the forest and it was snowing. It was a nice walk and we got the feeling of Christmas 😉

The spruce trees a long the path was all dressed up with ice taps and walking a long a little creek I found a tiny mushroom almost covered in snow.

Well now the Easter holidays are over and tomorrow it is back to work.

Have a lovely week!

 

Happy Easter Holiday

To days post consists of a few pictures i took in the woodlands today when I was out walking my dog in the rain. Just enjoying some days off.

Spring is just beautiful!

Happy Easter holiday!

 

Winter holiday

Our girls had a week off this week, winter holiday at school, and we spent to days together. The winter weather was sparkling so it felt right to spend some times out doors. We went to Oslo just to be tourists in our own city and I tested if I could use my iPhone 7+ as a light camera when traveling. So today there are a mix of Nikon D7000 and iPhone 7+ photos in the post. I think they both work out just fine.

The other day we went for a walk along the coast line (Oslo fjord) and the light was so beautiful when we reached Sjøstrand.

Christmas Holiday

My plan was off course to post some photos of the snow covered leafs, trees and maybe some frozen moss or mushrooms. Well there didn’t come any Christmas snow this year. And I came up with a cold so I haven´t been out photographing either. So I found some other pictures, from November and December, of motifs I love to photograph: mushrooms, droplets and moss. Hopefully there will be some winter pictures later. Keep on enjoying your hollidays!

Lofoten

Lofoten is an adventure. The landscapes with high mountains all around and deep valleys with small fisher villages. I’ve been there some years ago and I will return, for sure.

Vegaøyan – The Vega archipelago

We have been to the Vega islands on holiday a several times. My husband is born there but this is not the only reason why we like to spend time there. The island is very beautyful with beautyful beaches, landscapes and some small mountains tops too (about 700 m). It is also listed on the Unesco World Heritage List. This summer we spent a week in Our family cabin on the island. Beeing in a beautyful place one must take som pictures and here are some:

Summer holiday :-)

Finally it’s time for some days off. After a quite busy spring and early summer it feels so good to finally go on a summer vacation. I am not sure if I will post anything during the next two weeks, it depends. But I promise I will post a lot of pictures when I am back from Vega and Lofoten in the Northern part of Norway (the light in this part of Norway is perfect for photography).

I wish you all a happy summer time 🙂
