The Daily Post, Weekly photo challenge: Solitude

Solitude -for me

Solitude is a positive word for me. I love to walk on empty streets all by myself, left with my thoughts. I need it to recover, it might be a walk in an empty street or spending time alone in nature. In stressful times its easy to forget about taking time for myself, which makes me even more stressed. This photo shows a narrow street in the old town, Stockholm. It’s crowded in the old town, but some of the narrow streets are empty. Wonder feeling walking around all alone:)

My photos can now be seen on Crowdifyclub

Do you have photos that you would like to showcase on Crowdifyclub?

Right now I’m trying out a new site: Crowdifyclub. It is a social network that pays members for various things that they are already doing for free. This includes uploading photographs, art, blogging, creating events, sharing content of other members and much more. Click here to read more.

The site is in startup mode right now and the number of members are increasing all the time.I think it is fun to join it from start. You can also join and create an account for free, to see what its all about. If you are interested in social media, photo, blogging or have some idea you like to get help sharing, go check it out:)

Here is some of my photos that I uploaded to Crowdifyclub:

The best thing this far is that I get a lot of help to be promoted. Of course this includes to help others and promote their ideas, blog posts and photos. It is about give and take like in everyday life. And that is what I think is the most promising part of Crowdifyclub.

Today there is a lot of sites where I can sell photos. I also know that there is a lot of social media sites. But I have not found a site that combines these activities and also encourage promotion. It is free to check out to see what it’s all about.

Frozen day

I can´t think of a better way to start of a new year. I love the cold crispy air and snowy landscapes. Unfortunately most snow is gone now, we have had rain… I can still feel how great it was hiking in the cold sunny day. There was a lot energy in the air. Its an incomparable source of happiness:)

Below there is some more photos from our hike the other day.

Winter landscape hiking -amazing experience

Winter landscape

First winter landscape 2017… First days with snow, a few weeks passed since Christmas and we finally got our winter:) The sea is, as always, stunning. What can be more amazing than hiking in a sunny winter day? Lot of wonderful light that brings new energy to a tired mind.

I hope you all are able to enjoy the new year and that it started well for you:) I will try to be a more active blogger this year, even if I still studying. BUT I love nature and photography and it makes me happy so I guess its a great way to recover.

Friday morning sunset

Another Friday morning is born

Another stunning Friday morning, its not possible to describe in words or pictures how wonderful the experience was. Mornings is my favourite time of the day. I can watch the new day being born, its something special in that moment. I watch the colours of the sky shifting fast, from purple to orange, depending on in which direction I chose to look.

Mornings give us the opportunity to feel grateful for receiving the gift of another day. But also to feel grateful for the honour to watch the beauty of the new day, the beginning of e new life cycle<3

Saturday Seascape

Seascape in November sun

Earth is such a beautiful place. Every time I’m outdoors, near the sea or in the forest I feel calm and I feel trust in something bigger than us. Nature is calming and healing, as always. I have spent far to much time inside lately, busy studying. I learn a lot but I never calm down enough:D Its no big effort to go outdoors for a few hours, its so worth it and I’m aware of that. Still i don’t prioritise it a lot. But today it happened, I went outdoors all day in the warming november sun. Now I’m fileld with a lot of new energy and can go on studying for hours:) Have a wonderful weekend<3

Autumn in the forest

Lovely walk in the forest

The forest is my favourite place, next to my other favourite: the sea, of course…

Every season has its charm: winter, spring, summer and autumn! Love the change in colours and weather. Soon winter will arrive and I hope we will get a lot of snow this year:) Snow make the world a bit more magic and I think we all need some magic in our lives, or what do you think?

But for today I enjoy the last pictures of wonderful autumn colours, which I think will do just fine! Glad for my trips outdoors, they bring me a lot of energy.

So please enjoy some yellow and bright colours:

Mindful refueling

Time for refueling

I have to stop by here to show you some photos from my “Tuesday refueling hike”:) Yes I managed to get a Tuesday hike, in between som examinations and other tasks to complete.

refueling

It was an amazing day. The weather at the moment was all gray. But no wind, no rain, and a bit dark… But what I found outdoors was stillness and wonderful autumn colors. It was like nature was waiting for something to happen, the mood was a bit strange.

It really felt peace and calmness, just walking around in the forest, watching a calm lake in our way.

We where hiking at Sörmlandsleden, a hiking trail that is about 1000 km long, this part was about 10 km and is situated around a lake called Nävsjön. A very beautiful place, every season.
