Photo – Nature – Everyday Life



Sunny afternoon

Finally the sun showed up. I went out in the afternoon before the sun was about to set, to see if I could find some little treasures in the forest. The sun showed me a little diamond as I passed by a little bush. And as I love cones from the alder tree I had to take some photo´s when I found a little branch with alder cones in the snow.

Hopefully there will be more sunny days in February.

Being an amateur photographer I take a lot of photos which has no quality what so ever, so sometimes it is necessary to tidy up in the Lightroom archive. There is no need to save photographs which cannot be used for anything and raw files do take a lot of storage. Going thorough all these photos (well I just finished march 2017) I did find some photos that actually was quite OK. Todays theme are droplets, seems to be a favorite of mine together with mushrooms and leaves.

Dråpe 3

Droplet on moss (winter 2017), can you see the apartment building inside the droplet?

Dråpe 2

Droplet on leaf (early spring 2017).

For 2018 I probably should try not to photograph so many droplets….or…. We´ll see 😉

Have a lovely week!

Juniper and pine

During winter spruce, juniper and pine are still green and can be nice targets for some macro photography.

The photos are from two different days this January. Juniper with droplet are from new years day, a rather warm winters day were the snow was about to melt. The frosty pine needle was captured this week were the temperature was about -3 Celsius and the sun was rising.

Color hunting

Winter in Norway can be somewhat colorless because the days are quite short (the sun is up just a few hours) and the weather can be quite grey. The snow are covering up potential targets for a macro photographer. But sometimes if you take your time to observe your surroundings you can find something unexpected.

Trees from below

Today I played around in the forest taking pictures of trees from below. Lying on my back I was happy there was nobody around. the pictures are for a challenge: “Braking the rules” . I found it quite difficult because I am a lazy photographer which couldn’t care less about photographic rules 😉

I wish all of you a happy new year with a photo I have called “Forest fireworks”:

I did a few more tree photos too:

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!

Afternoon walk

The weather was so bright and warm so before diner I went for a little walk with my dog, Charlie. I brought the camera because the afternoon sun can give some interesting light for macro photography. I did find a few little treasures.

Hope you enjoy the photos!
