Weekly Photo Challenge: Transition

Transition from summer to autumn

Transition is the theme in this weeks Weekly Photo Challenge, see more entries here: WPC.

Suddenly when I woke up one morning it was all frosty outside, but still all boats where in the water and the nature was all green. A fast turn from summer to autumn this year…

But, I must say we where a bit cheated, few days later the weather was warm again and we still don’t have some really low temperatures, as we should by now. I love cold and crispy days, when the air is so clear and fresh, it look like I have to wait for that a bit longer. I hope for some snow before Christmas, but that’s not happening every year…


Frosty morning

Winter garden -my roses are freezing

I have more or less given up the one year long photo challenge that is called “365 foton“.

My time is not enough for all things that need to be done in my life. And I have to make some choices. But still I enjoy my moment of photographing, even if it want happen every day.

Like today: the world has turned into a frosty landscape and all the roses in my garden are freezing. They are still beautiful, but covered with ice crystals. Soon they will be gone for this time. Guess I will see them next spring, when the nice warm weather returns.

But I really like winter and wish for a cold and snowy one. It’s been a few years now with little or no snow at all, which is a bit sad, I love the silence and the white snow that lights up in the dark, so I hope it soon will be here.

Meanwhile I hope you will enjoy some of my frosty garden photos:)

Views over three small villages

In Cinque Terre there where, as the name gives us a hint about, five villages. And as I told you in my last post we where hiking between the villages and partly it was som hard trails to walk.

I got three of the villages on photo from some nice viewpoints, you can see them here:

Cinque Terre -a dream comes true

I have longed for going to Cinque Terre for years and when I finally got to book my trip I was afraid that I was going to get disappointed. I have had some photos from the trip in previous posts, and I must say that this place was amazing! We was walking some of the hiking trails and the views was so beautiful. I’m glad we went there in September, it was a lot of people but we where told that there are many times more in the summer… We walked som of the more difficult trails and it was not crowded at all:D And there would not be place enough for that. Narrow paths…

I will start my story in photos with some details from the sights, colorful details. Next post will show some more of the views and villages. We stayed in the village called Monterosso, one of the larger of the five villages. I must say my favorite was a town called Corniglia, read more about it here.

Here you can find my earlier posted photos from Cinque Terre: Heights and Blinded.

An autumn visit to the sea

Sunny days in October, autumn is showing its best side. A visit to the archipelago makes the soul feel good. The environment is so calm and the light is awesome. Soon November will come and there are seldom sunny days that time of the year. I try to save some light until I get there:)

In Sweden there is vacation for all schools this week, and I have taken some time off too. A great period in the middle of autumn, time for a break and some rest.

Seascape photographs for christmas?

I hope you like my seascape photographs:)

Its soon time to start looking for christmas gifts and I have now made a new collection in my Zazzle store where you can order a set of printed canvas, a set of posters or a phone cases with seascape photographs.


I have also created a Calendar for 2016 with photographs from the Swedish archipelago. Every month with a unique photo from one of my favorite places by the sea.

A survivor from the summer -Morning Glory

Growing Morning Glory inside

Not by purpose though… But it is rather awesome to have these lovely flowers inside, they bring color into our house.

When we where taking some of our pots with citrus inside for the winter, we where surprised…

In one of the pots a new plant started to grow, and grow. It turned out it was the beautiful Morning Glory that was growing in our living room. A miracle that reminds us of summer and warmer days. On the photos in this post the flower where bathing in sunlight, the late morning light in October. Such a survivor, nature always finds its ways and I love it.

I first discovered these flowers in A small town i south of France. I fell in love with this colorful flowers, and since I have been growing them in my garden during summer. Some might say they behave like weeds, but I like them anyway:)

Another post, with a photo of this amazing flower, taken in my garden, not inside: Weekly Photo Challenge, New

180/365: 312 titta här! (look here)

Wow, look here!

Look here what I found this morning, when I was taking a walk and arrived at the marina: it was all frosty, already… I must say it adds some special beauty to things, that glimmering, ice cold frost. The sun really reinforce the glimmering:)

Titta här vad jag såg i morse när jag tog min promenad och kom till småbåtshamnen: allt täckt med frost, redan… Men ändå: det blir väldigt vackert med den glittrande, kalla frosten. Solen förstärker verkligen glittret:)

178/365: 125 höstkväll (autumn evening)

Autumn evening -I love the darkness and burnings skies. Every sunset is unique and wonderful, a nature’s artwork. I usually gets in a hurry, looking out and observing an all red sky. It never lasts long, I have to rush for my camera and outside to get my daily capture:) Not all evenings are this beautiful…

Höstkvällar -jag älskar mörkret och den brinnande, röda himlen. Varje solnedgång är unik och är verkligen ett av naturens konstverk. Jag får oftast bråttom när jag tittar ut och ser den röda himlen, det håller inte i sig så länge. Jag rusar efter kameran och ut för att hinna få min dagliga fångst:) Långt ifrån alla kvällar är såhär vackra…
