Forest glow

Last Sunday My husband and I was out walking with some friends in the forest. I had my camera over my shoulder as usual. Taking photos and spend time with friends normally isn’t a very good idea, I spend much more time talking to my companions than watching my surroundings for items to “shoot”. But at one point I found a beam of light from the sun finding its way between the tree logs and hit a yellow leaf lying in the grass like a glowing jewel.

Wow, how I love to find such treasures.

In my neighbourhood

Todays photos are from a short photo-walk in the little forest just outside my house a few days ago.

Have a lovely week!

Soon

Soon spring will arrive. The snow is slowly melting away, but still it is too much snow for spring flowers to blossom. This Easter we have had a lot of sunny days but it has been too cold for snow to melt, so I have to wait a little bit longer to go hunting for green leaves to pop or little spring flowers to grow. Well, the forest still have some beautiful dried leaf shivering in the sun to offer to a macro nerd. I am fascinated by the shapes and lines as they are curled up and all dried out. The sun shines so beautifully through the leaves and give them warm colors even though they are cold and quite dead.

Goodbye January

Today is the last day of January and I have already started waiting for spring to arrive. Outside it is snowing heavily and there are no signs for spring what so ever….The whole world is monochrome grayish…oh I long for something green…..

Shape of a leaf

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.

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!

St Paul en Foret

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.

Sparkling frost

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 🙂
