Winter wonderland

251214- 312

I’ve been neglecting this blog for a very long time. I started this blogpost A YEAR AGO and I forgot to post it. That’s how things have been… I had planned to post some other photos from a photo walk a week ago. But since I hadn’t posted the photos below, I’ll post them later.

The Norwegian wilderness

230814- 166

I went on a mountain trip with my good friend Bjørg this weekend. I took the friday off and went to Bjørg on thursday evening. She had to work that day, but had a home-office. Right after her husband came home at 16.15, we left for Trysil. Trysil is a municipality east in Norway, that borders to Sweden. It’s over two and a half hour drive north-east from Oslo. We borrowed a lovely cabin , which was lovely. It had everything we needed; comfy beds, a kitchen and livingroom in one and a bathroom with a shower and a sauna. There was also free internet and a tv there, but neither of that worked while we were there. We were a bit annoyed at first, but it didn’t take long before we forgot about it. We had music on my phone (Spotify) with portable speakers and board games, so we had all we needed.

a whole lot of animals and some lovely nature

During my six days stay in Alkmaar, I spent quite some time watching cute animals. We saw the at a visiting farm close to the city center. They were also spotted right outside the city limits. Chantie and I, we took a bike trip to see the tulip fields. On our bike trip we also saw a lot of cute animals. It was a great biketrip where I got to use my camera a lot. How can you not capture cute animals laying / standing on in a field?

Here are a variety of the animals spotted and the landscape around. Be aware of cuteness overload.

The road leading up to some horses. Small canals on both sides. Such a pretty landscape!

A horse, well tucked in. It looked a bit sad.

Another horse. Eating grass. Very lovely. It reminds me of Pippi Longstockings horse.

Awesome house located right beside the fields where the horses were walking around.

Cows haning around eating grass.

Pretty landscape! Sunny weather, blue skies. Lots of dandelions. And cows far, far away.You don’t just pass such a pretty view. You stop your bike and pull out your camera.

Two sheep eating together. So cute. They look like an old couple having dinner together. They could need a little trim. Look at all the wool!

Cute, cute, cute! Tiny little lambs. I wanted to take one with me home…

After all the eating and walking around, you need to rest as well. When you’re a baby, what is better than to lay with your head to your mum?

One of the oh so famouse canals.

A goat. Basking in the sun and greeting us.

Another one. This one from behind.

Cute baby goats. This is from the animal farm we visited. They were running around like crazy. Look like they had lots of fun.

Some birds. Not sure what kind. But cute none the less. And very furry.

“Hi! I’m Sniffles. I’m fine. How are you?”

Bird on a fence.

Baby goat. So tiny, but not less cute. Maybe more cute actually.

Animals on a row, eating that yummy grass.


On the move

Last weekend when I visited my friend Bjørg, I took the bus. And I brought my wide angle lens so I could try it out that weekend. I didn’t get much chance to test it while I was there, but I had good use of it on my way home.

It’s a two-hour drive home. I sat in the back of the bus, using seats on both sides of the aisle. There were few people on the bus, so it was no problem.

It’s not easy to take pictures from a moving bus; everything passes so fast. In a split second the motif can be gone. Still, I got a few photos I would like to share here. The nature is beautiful and these photos represent a piece of Norway during winter sunday in the middle of Januar.

Look at the white trees and that sky! Isn’t it pretty?

More pretty sky. It looks like cotton candy.

Winter lanscape.

Follow the lines.

Snowy curvy roads.

Trees on a line.
A chruch.

I hope for sunny weather this weekend. Im going home to Lierfoss saturday evening, because I’m meeting a friend on saturday. And I’m going to go out shooting. I have two missions; 1) take some photos that I can give my aunt for her 70th birthday 2) take tree photos I can put together and send in to the open call for entries over at words to shoot by. The word is place and my plan is to shoot something from the place I grew up. I have 1/3 of an idea, alas one photo figured out. If I’m lucky, I’ll be picked.

Stay tuned for more winter shots!
