Foggy Oslo pt. II

visitnorway

A little over a week ago, I got a phonecall while being at work. I was superbusy had chance to answer. It was from a unknown number too and I rarely take those calls, since it’s most likely someone who’s going to try sell me something or someone who wants me to take a survey. Right after I got a text message. It was from a guy from Visit Norway that asked me if I could call him back before noon.

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 croft pt. II

Last weekend I was back at Lierfoss. This time to visit a friend and just relax at the countryside. My sister and her family came too, which was nice. We spent most of sunday together, eating good food, playing and being outside making a snowman.

I had some time to get out my camera too this weekend. I went back to the croft. My parents are spending a lot of time there, cutting down unwanted trees and bushes. It takes a lot of time. Dad went there with my uncles tractor and I drove my mum there. Mum wanted me to help out, but I said I couldn’t. I had more important things to do, I needed to photograph.

The weather wasn’t as good as last time I was there photographing, it was a bit more foggy, but I still managed to capture some of the beauty of that place.

Enjoy!

Wintery Lierfoss

Here are some more photos from my winter walk a few weeks ago. These photos are taken around Lierfoss, where I grew up. The sun was shining and the weather was gorgeous. I love winter days like that! I hope it will be more winter days like that in the near future.

The croft

Last saturday I went home to where I grew up, to visit a friend. The weather was really nice, so I took the opportunity to photograph some too. Dad took me to this place, a piece of land that my uncle ownes. My parents have been working there; tiding up, cut donw trees and bushes.  Long time ago, like 50 years, this was a croft. Many people has live there. My grandfather had a farm and needed help to run it. The people he hired lived on that croft. Apart from working on my uncles farm for at least 8 hours a day, they had to work when they came home too — just to take care of the croft. It was hard life.

Dad told me all this when we were there. He is a great storyteller and know so much about all sorts of stuff. He always has a story to tell when we visit places. I like to listen to those.

These photos might now be so special to you, but to me they carry something extra since there’s a story behind them I can relate to.

Enjoy!

Winter scenes from a bus

The weather the day I left my friend in Elverum was absoutely wonderful. It was cold though, – 24 C when I got up at 08.30. Brrr. It was real sunny when I went on the bus. I knew beautiful landscapes would fly by as the bus set its destination towards Oslo. The beautiful scenery passing by, I couldn’t let that pass without photographing. Even though I was on a bus and it’s not always easy to photograph when you’re on the move. When I entered the bus, I tried to find a seat with a clean window. I also wanted to avoide the windows with stickers on it too.

The two hour long busride started great, with sun and blue skyes. It wasn’t one cloud in sight and it was oh so beautiful. As we came nearer Oslo, the clouds rolled in. You can see that on the very last photograph. It was all grey and almost foggy outside then.

I have more winter photographes to show you all. Yesterday I was out photographing again. When the sun is up and the sky is blue, it’s hard to sit inside and watch the beautiful weather. You’ll see those photos later this week. I still need to post process them and it’s quite a lot to go through. I hope you won’t get tired of all my wintery shots. You’ll see something else, like in March or something, when the snow is gone ;)

 

 

A cold and sunny winter day

So as I told you in my previous post, I visited a friend last weekend. She texted me the day before I was coming telling me to bring some warm pants, so we could be outside. That was a very good idea, because it was cold outside. It is always much colder where she lives than in Oslo. It is also much more snow. Here most of the snow rained away two weeks ago. We did get some new snow, but it’s not that much. In Elverum, there were quite some snow as you will see on the photographes.

It was really sunny on saturday. It gave me the perfect light to work with while I was photographing outside.

Bjørg brought out her kicklsled (seen on the top photographes). You can read more about it here, if you want to know more about it. Seeing a kicksled brought back so many memories. I used to have one when I was a kid. You can walk pretty fast with it and downhill it goes very fast! I always had fun with the kicksled. There was no time for me to use the kicksled on saturday, I was too busy photographing.

I really hope there will be more days like the one I had on saturday.
