Australia Day 2016

Congratulation Aussies with The Australian Day! A year ago today I had the pleasure to take part in the festivities – and take a few shots at the same time. First a replica of an old naval vessel and a newer iconic Opera House

We have had an on-and-off winter so far. In the week-end it was absolutely off, as you can see from these photos that were shot along the same trail as the ones in my former post three weeks ago.

We could not see far

The colours were not blazing, but the combination of mist and no wind gave a very special atmosphere

And additional mist rising from the water

We were not alone

Old bird’s nest in the trees even had a “spooky” feeling 🙂

The First Snow

Yesterday morning we got the first 5 cm of snow this winter. The temperature was around zero, there was no wind and luckily we have a small area of almost untouched nature close by. This was noon in Norway.

Reflections were easy to find

Lonely trees fascinate me

Some clouds threatened us with snow, but we escaped

Back at the beginning (yes, it is the same lake) – 90 minutes later. The light has changed.

Today the rain is back and the snow has gone.
