Summer color

Splashes of summer colors in a autumn day

Those last summer colors…

This post about “summer colors” were supposed to be written last weekend. But once again I have been struggling with some technical issues. This time I could not upload photos, wich is a very bad thing in a blog with photos, isn’t it?

Anyway, now it is solved, something about my rights, set by the web host. Enough about that for now.

Last saturday I went out to my garden for inspiration and also to make some cleaning up before winter is here. I found a lot of various colors, small splashes of summer colors in a very grey autumn day. Lovely and enjoyable:) I love my summer garden and will miss it when it’s gone. But on the other hand: winter and snow can be really lovely too.

Here are a selection of my last flowers for this season, I hope you will enjoy them. And I hope that you might sence how wonderful they look out there in all the grey and brown autumn days.

Weekly photo challenge: Nighttime

Nighttime in the weekly photo challenge

This post is an entry in the weekly photo challenge on the theme nighttime. To read more or to participate, please click on the link.

I think nighttime photography is awesome, and hard to accomplice. I don’t have a tripod which results in high ISO (1600) and photos that not are so sharp and clear that I want them to be. In my photos for this week you will se one handheld photo with ISO 1600 but you will also see some photos from last December, where I’d borrowed a tripod (ISO is just  set to 100).

I like the sharpness in the later photos, but the first one contains more of a story with a couple sitting on a beach in the night. I hope you will enjoy my entry and I am also checking on yours to se what you have chosen for this theme.

Södermalm

A visit to Södermalm, Stockholm

Södermalm, Stockholm

Södermalm is now a trendy part of the Swedish capital. A oas high above the rest of Stockholm. You can find nice walking paths with a view over the rest of the city. Old houses can be found everywhere and here is a lot of street life. The great thing is that you can also find a lot of flowers, gardens and nature, in the middle of the city:) If you like to sit in the street having a coffee while watching all the people passing by, this is the right place. I visited Södermalm yesterday, a sunny and warm day, we really had a great time walking around the area. I hope you will enjoy my photos from our trip.

Ain’t no sunshine when she is gone…

End of summer, goodbye sunshine!

I’m now back in blogging, and it’s a reliable sign that the autumn is here. Our sunny days will soon be over and here in Sweden we will once again be covered in darkness. Of course there are some sun in the autumn and winter as well but the days are getting shorter for every week now. In december the sun will be up between 09.00 and 15.00. That is a rather short day, don’t you agree.

Right now the world is beautiful, turning from summer to autumn, soon there will be all these colored leaves and a wonderful daylight. But in a way I grieve the summer every year, when “she” left us. I will miss you, but we will meet again next year:) Now in to a new season and some new views of life and nature. I hope you will come here to visit during the autumn, I will publish some photos from nature and sea. And I will also look back to the summer and a trip to Mallorca, you will get a report in photos.

Until next time I hope you enjoy my my amazing sunflower.

Weekly Photo Challenge: silhouette

-Weekly Photo Challenge: silhouette-

This post is an entry in WP Daily Post weekly photo challenge. To see more entries or to participate, please click the link above! The theme for this week is silhouette, an artistic expression in photography if you ask me. I think silhouettes can be amazing and though they don’t show too much details they actually tell the pictures story. Amazing and fascinating.

My first photo is taken in the archipelago, late in December last year. The sun doesn’t get high up at that time of the year so all day is a “golden hour”. My kids and I had a day outdoors with some lunch out on the lonely beach. A great day:)

Next photo is taken on an evening walk, when the light was the same but this time it is taken in March and spring has arrived:)

Living color and a lot of grey

Living color

This evening I got my eyes on our wonderful and soft colored grey table, floor and chairs. The contrast to all the flowers surrounding us was really cool. I like abstract photos and art, I had to play around a bit and took some photos. I can’t say that they are abstract but almost and I think the contrast between living color and all the grey furniture gave some great shots.

This post will show some of the photos (I took a whole bunch…) from tonight. All of them taken on and around our dinner table. You don’t always have to travel far to find interesting views;) It’s all about to look for them!

To enlarge the photos please click on one of them to watch them in a carousel. I hope you will enjoy, I had a lot of fun shooting these photos:)

summer summary

Time for my summer summary in photos

Summer summary 2014

Summer is soon coming to an end. This year too…

I have gone through my photos for this summer and my summer summary contains a lot of activities outside, in nature and by the sea in the archipelago. A great summer that started with a lot of rain in June and later turned into a fantastic summer with a lot of sunny days.

Here you will find a lot of photos in a gallery that tell a lot about this summer from a rain wet rose in June to sunny days by the sea. This summer has been amazing and the photos will be enjoyed for a long time:) I will come back to them during the winter, I think it is a great way to keep the summer feeling for a longer time.

Some of the photos have been on this blog in earlier posts but I think they have to be included in this summary, I hope you don’t mind to enjoy them once more…

To watch the summer summary you can also click on one of the photos to enlarge them and to watch them in a carousel.

A visit to Norrköping -a town with great contrasts

I have been very busy lately… With my vacation:) I have had zero time in front of my computer, not too much time with my camera and a lot of time IRL. Fantastic and enjoyable, I think it is important to take care of the time of in ways that make us reload. It will soon be autumn and a lot of time for “cosy” evenings inside…

Today I visited Norrköping, my photos from that trip can be seen here: Covey View

I hope you enjoy that post. We are some bloggers from around the world that write on Covey view about a lot of different subjects, so please have a look and I hope you like it:)
