Photo – Nature – Everyday Life




The snow keeps falling, there are no sign of spring yet. So while I am waiting for spring to arrive I tried photographing some snowflakes.  🙂

Underneath the beautiful snow lies the secret of spring, the secret of life.

Black and white

Winter is still going strong and it is snowing almost every day now. The whole world outside is just black and white. Will it ever be spring?

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.

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…..

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.

Droplet on naked branch (winter 2017).

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.

Frosty pine needle

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.

Happy New Photo Year

Todays photos is also a part of the photo series I took for the “Braking the rules” challenge (like the three photos in yesterdays post; “Trees from below”). In the two images below the object in focus is centered in the frame. Which sometimes works out quite well in my opinion but it depends of the rest of the composition of course. But I’m not an expert on the golden rules for photography and that’s why I found it difficult to break them ;-). Anyway, performing these challenges are truly a good opportunity to see things differently and learn some new approaches.

I wish you all a happy 2018!

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:
