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

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.

Longing for winter to arrive

I have started to long for winter to arrive.

This autumn has been warm but last weeks it has been extremely dull and grey. Some photos from some winter days light up. Especially when Christmas is coming up, the grey days seems to be so wrong:)

In my archives I have found some sparkling white landscapes from the past few years. They make me happy and also give hope for some change to come. I know there have been a lot of snowing in other parts of the world lately, and of course it might be too much snow as well…

But I hope you will enjoy theses photos whether you have some winter or not.

The snow keeps falling

For the third day this week the snow keeps falling on us… There also is a strong wind so we have a lot of snow in some spots, and less in others. Outside my door there have been a lot. The photos in this post is taken on lunch time this Tuesday, and well we have got some more since that. I will try to capture the result in the weekend when, I hope, the snowing has stopped.

I went for my lunch walk and wonder who made these traces?image

Still I do believe that it is very beautiful outside right now, the sun really are welcome even if it is just for a short moment.image

As you can see on this small path there is some wind outside these days…image

 

I love that “golden hour”

Lots, and lots and even more photos are taken during the “golden hour“. And I love it. A magic glow, that attracts not only photographers. The whole world looks different and beautiful. Wintertime gives the best opportunity to catch this, it gets dark early, so the sunset is early. And I do believe that every day, every sunset and every photo is unique. So here is for you to enjoy some golden moments from last winter!

Today it is like this outside:

But January this year gave us some fantastic, cold, but beautiful winter days. Waiting for next snow season I look at my photos. See how the sun looks like a great, big star:)

I have some other shots taken at the creek in our town:

It sure is a bit cool with this water in contrast to all the ice and snow. When I look at the first photo and then the others there is no doubt that it is going to be nice with som real winter…

 

I wish for a white christmas:)

Crystal of ice in a cold day

So wonderful outside when the snow and frost hits, I really wish for a cold and winterful christmas. The last few years we have been spoiled with lot of snow and fresch, cold air. This year we are promised +8 and rain for the holidays… Well somehow it is for the best, I don’t think that we are supposed to controll the weather so i just look at some photos from last winter:)
