Dreaming about winter meets spring

Wonderful times when winter meets spring

I love when winter meets spring, don’t you do that to? We haven’t had much winter lately, not for several years. 5-6 years ago we had some fantastic winters in opposite to the latest years. We had lots of snow and then spring arrived. As a result the snow was slowly melting in the warm sun, much as it “should be”, according to me.

While I have been looking in my photo archives I have found some amazing winter photos. It seems like we have had days that are cold and crispy, while the sun light makes the whole world several shades lighter.

I also found wonderful, sunny spring day with melting ice. Finally the sea is slowly winning the fight against the compact ice and it breaks apart.

It’s lovely to see how finally the spring wins the fight and the water gets it’s freedom. It’s much the opposite to last year when we did not even notice that winter turned into spring. The last photos in this post is taken in springtime and summer. Both with wonderful evening light and stunning reflection. I hope you will enjoy and leave your opinion below about winter meets spring! What do you think about when you see this photos?

Rainy days in may, what is this?

Rainy days…

It feels strange to have rainy days in May. It’s like autumn but much greener. Strange feeling and we all hope for better weather!

Today I had a long walk, not all in rain, it was holding up when I left. I was equipped with a plastic bag for my camera, a winter coat, gloves, not really an outfit in May. Maybe you know the feel in; you have been inside all day, at work, the rain has poured down all they and when you arrive home it has stopped! You just have to get out for some air and some walking. The air after rain is fresh and this time a year a grey day also contains some green colors. The hope for better days live.

Such difference from the sunny days and all wonderful flower shots. But I kind of like the contrast it’s rather cool.Tweet this

What about my photos then? I managed to take some photos before it started to rain. I headed for the waterfront in our town. Not so much green colors here but some. And some amazing clouds… I love dramatic skies, and that is not always in the meaning colorful, also cool clouds and light attracts my camera.

Well that was a fun walk, some photos are not town in the paper basket, I actually kept some of them. But that’s it for now, enough of rainy days, now we would like the sun to come back and warm us. The temperature outside is below 10 °C and that sure is not what I call springtime;)

Weekly photo challenge; on top of the roof

Photo challenge; on top of the roof

For the weekly photo challenge of this week the theme is on top. I love to take photos upwards, I love roofs, rooftops and chimneys. I think it is really beautiful to see the contrast between a rooftop and the blue sky. I have a lot of photos of that and of course “on top” could be interpreted in many ways but this week I will make it “simple” for myself… The reason is I love this kind of photos and that I have some great ones to share with you. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do.

As you can see I have chosen a mix of photos, the first two are taken in Bonnieux, Provence, where I stand on top of a hill, shooting my photos downwards, here is a lot of beautiful roofs. The red wooden houses are situated in a small town on the east coast of Sweden; Trosa, that I visited lately. The last photos are taken in London. If you point at the photos with your cursor, there will be a description for each photos to read.

Part two, sunny day in the archipelago

Yesterday, that I wrote about in the last post, will be a day to live on for some time. Today the rain is falling again and I feel more then satisfied that I took the chance to go out to the sea yesterday. It was a really calm day, the waves where small.

Really a nice day for an escape:-) It was a surprise to me to see all the swans. In summertime here is a lot of people sunbathing and swimming, so of course the swans choose an other location. Bur yesterday it was a lot of them.

In the archipelago, close to the nature, and the sea, I can feel the greatness of nature. It is breathtaking to stand there, watching out over the water. It seams endless…

At last, it is fascinating to look around and find this in the end of December, when it is supposed to be a lot of snow.
