Winter

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!

 

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.

Snow in February

After a few weeks with rain and foggy weather and hardly any light for photography we finally got some snow to enlighten the environment.

The winter seems to stay for a few days too since the weather forecast says that it is going to be quite cold the coming days.

I should probably do something different than macro but after the landscape challenge it felt so good to concentrate on my favorite theme again 😉

Landscape – photo challenge

This month, January, the photo challenge is landscape. Well, I think it has been a huge challenge due to different aspects like weather, were to go  and how to make the landscape interesting and not just a boring view……

The last weeks the weather has been quite grey and there has hardly been any light for landscape photography. The one day the sun was shining I managed to take a lot of pictures but none of the landscape pictures was successful. At last I did get some ok pictures even though they are taken on a very foggy day so I chose to present them in B&W mode.

The two pictures are taken from the same spot, I just turned 180 degrees.

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 🙂

Meanwhile

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!

Gems and pearls in the forest

When winter finally arrived there were treasures to be found in the forest.

Sunny sunday

This morning my friend Milla and I went on a Sunday trip in to the woodlands on a little photo-safari. We drove up to Solli and walked in to a little place called Myggheim. Then we walked up to a little lake – Sandungen. It was quite icy on the paths through the woos so we took the same way back. The sun was shining and the snow sparkled – finally the winter has arrived. It was such a beautiful day 🙂

I hope you enjoy my winter pictures!

Goodbye 2016

So this will be the last post in 2016. I should of course have posted a picture of a sparkling Norwegian winter landscape, but since there are still no snow I keep on with macros with a tiny taste of winter.
