Weekly Photo Challenge: Vibrant

Vibrant

I love colors:) Especially the colors of nature, the best of all artists…

In this weeks photo challenge I have chosen a photo of something rare and beautiful. Rare because it lives for just a few weeks. The cherry blossoms, I love them and I think they are a great interpretation of this weeks theme, or what do you think?

Spotting a mirage a cold day

A mirage by the horizon

Magnificent seaview, all covered in frost and ice. In the horizon I can spot some islands, a mirage makes them look like they are floating. Looks a bit fuzzy, like if I couldn’t see clear. I guess it’s because of the very cold weather that day.

We are now expecting some rainy days but I hope winter will get back one more time before spring arrives. I love spring but I don’t like a rainy winter and it will be two more months until spring is here. Until then I would love to have cold and snowy days!

Follow the snowy footsteps

Cold footsteps

While walking I spotted this bridge with all the footsteps in the snow. I can see why you wish to go out there… To enter the bridge and walk towards the sunlight, seems tempting. Another thing is the feeling it brings me, the feeling of being in the middle of the sea, out there surrounded by, now, ice:) The sea is frozen but still beautiful.

Can you imagine being out there, surrounded by ice, snow and light. The ice is reflecting the light and it all glows, that is a magic feeling, i guess…

Did I go out there? Might have done that:D

Hiking on a cold winter beach

A lovely winter beach.
Another view over the Baltic sea on a cold winter day. The ice is yet not to trust, the water is still open not far from the shore. People that like to skate have to go to the small lakes nearby, this is to dangerous.

But for hiking down the winter beach it’s just amazing to watch and to enjoy all the light the day brings:)

In summertime this place is crowded, its very popular to go here for a swim or to just relax in the sun. Such a contrast, but I love both seasons, this time of the year it gives so much peace to the mind to just walk around and enjoy mother nature.

Another cold winter day in the archipelago

Cold winter day

Another ice cold winter day in the archipelago. The light is just magic, the sun is shining while the snow reflects the sunshine.

The sky was so incredible blue, it made a wonderful contrast to the white snow. I love the light in the winter, and the cold, crispy air.

Imagine being out there, surrounded by light, from the sun, from the snow and from the ice. I feel so filled with new energy, its a great feeling:)

An excellent day for hiking and an excellent way to boost some energy for the new week at work.

Winter day part 1

Winter day, the sun is shining and the day is very cold. Lovely times to walk and enjoy the light! We got snow almost immediately after new years eve. The winter arrived in January:) Unfortunately we missed the whole “white christmas” thing, but now the winter has arrived, for real. The temperature is under -10°C almost every day. And I love it:)

Love to walk, love to face the sun, love the stunning light!

Here is my photo for today, a stunning view across the ice. I haven’t tried to walk on it yet, but there where several footprints so I might tomorrow:)
