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:)

Light up the dark December evening

A December evening walk

This December evening I took a walk in the dark.

I was feeling happy because I have, finally bought a tripod, earlier I have borrowed one…

I went out with my new investment in the dark evening to shot some “cool” moving lights. Unfortunately this evening was not a evening when people was moving around in cars, I guess they preferred to stay home. But I caught some cars with a small aperture and bulb setting on my camera.

I have not had so much time to take photos at all lately so I feel satisfied just getting out. My time is now occupied with work, and studies. I have began an education in Digital Design, very interesting and a lot of fun. Creative things to study, but it really eats my time… Here you can find the first step toward a portfolio that I have to create during the education: Kerlundesign

Just two of my photos from this evening, I think I could have done better, but I will keep trying.

Celebrate all beautiful things in life

Every day has it’s beauty.

Every new dawn we experience is a miracle.

It’s just that we don’t realize.

When we are in a hurry, in sadness, in anger or maybe hatred.

We have to take the time to stop and just look.

Take time and get the opportunity to experience the beauty in life and to celebrate all the beautiful things in life.

 

 

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

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.
