I love walking in the forest in winter especially when there is just a little bit of snow covering the ground. The last week it has been impossible to get around on the paths were I usually walks because it has been quite icy. But yesterday there was a snow fall and a change in temperature so today I finally was able to take a little walk. On these walks it is always interesting things to observe or photograph in the surroundings. I always get so fascinated by how the leaves curl up in different shapes when they are drying out in the autumn. Some of the leaves still are hanging on to the the branch even though it is winter and they should have fallen to the ground. They are quite beautiful I think.
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!
The summer house we rented this summer was just outside a little french village named St Paul en Foret. One day we went for a walk to visit this little village. Some of the houses looked quite old and the photos in todays post are from this little walk. I fell in love with some of the details on and around these houses.
The last weeks has been quite boring when it comes to photography. Every day has been foggy and grey. In Norway this means that there is hardly any proper light for photography. So todays picture had to be found in my archives. The image is from december on a frosty and sunny day. I hope you don´t get too bored by all my photographs of leafs but I simply love when the sun shines through the leaf so you can see the patterns in the little leaf. This one is extra pretty because of the sparkling frost on the leafs edges.
Have a nice week 🙂
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!
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 🙂
