Holiday

A trip to Lofoten islands – Svolvær

As a part of our summer holiday we spent a few days in the Lofoten islands. We rented a boat house in Svolvær (Svinøya). Svolvær is a beautiful town situated just below the famous rock formation “Svolværgeita” (the Svolvær goat). Svolvær is a popular place to visit for tourists from all over the world and a lot of them arrive with a Norwegian cruise ship called “Hurtigruta”. “Hurtigruta travels the Norwegian coastline from Bergen and all the way up to Tromsø.

We visited a few more places too, which I will write about in later posts. Meanwhile please enjoy the photos from Svolvær.

By the sea (Stavern, southern Norway)

The last week I spent in Stavern, together with my family. This is a beautiful little town by the Oslofjord. In the summer the little town are packed with tourists, some of them arrives by sailboat from Denmark, Germany and Holland. Mostly the town are packed with Norwegians who has their summer houses in the area.

I decided to try to photograph my surroundings on this trip. I also decided I should try some long exposure shots.

I hope you enjoy my experiments.

Summer memory

Since the snow still keeps falling I find my self longing for spring and summer (sorry about repeating myself all the time ;-)). So today I found a photo from last summers holiday in France. A little street with lots of flowers in Cannes.

Have a lovely week!

Windows from Seillans

Now that autumn is here and it is foggy and rainy outside I think of the wonderful summer holiday we had this year. I think of the warm and colorful little villages in Provence with all the narrow streets and stone steps and old wooden doors and of course the windows. So to days post is summer memories from Provence, three different windows from the little village of Seillans.

Have a nice week!

Lavender fields – Valensole

A really beautiful place to visit when in Provence is Valensole. It must be one of the most photographed spots on earth. I guess you have seen beautiful photos of the large, dark purple lavender fields with a lonely tree or a stone cottage. It is an amazing spot with the color purple and the strong scent of lavender. I hope one day to go back and spend some more time in these fields and take some amazing photos. For now just enjoy my summer memory from the Lavender field in Valensole.

French butterflies

Spending two weeks in a large and beautiful garden I just had to hunt some butterflies to shoot. Not easy with a heavy 300 mm lens and fluttering butterflies to get a sharp picture…. Well, I tried my best and here are the result from my butterfly hunt.

Garden frogs

When we stayed at the french summerhouse we rented in St Paul en Foret we heard some strange noises. We thought it could be some big bird or something in one of the neighbor houses. Well, after a few days we found out that there were some frogs in the garden pond. These frogs was a natural target for my new 300 mm Nikkor lens the next days ;-). Enjoy some photos of frogs!

Cannes – Le Suquet

When in southern Provence or Cote d´Azur you have to take a little trip to Cannes too.

We went there on a hot and sunny day. We went to Le Suquet (old town) after a walk on Promenade de la Croisette. From Le Suquet you have a wonderful view over Cannes and the Mediterranean.

Todays post contains photos from Le Suquet.

Seillans – a little village in Provence

Seillans is a beautiful village in Provence about an hour drive from Grasse. The little village is a nice place for a photo safari. A lot of stone houses, narrow streets and a church from the 12th century. There are also two good restaurants worth a visit; Chez Hugo and La Glorie de mon Pere. Both restaurants have  very good food.

Here are some photos from my visit to Seillans:
