Hiking in a landscape of magic forest and lakes

A magic forest with fantastic scenery

Yesterday I was hiking in a magic forest. I know it sounds a bit goofy byt I do think nature is magic and I love to spend time in the forest. So for me it’s all magic.

We passed to small lakes on the way. One of the lakes had a surface covered by water lilies.

The other lake was situated above this one. We found out they where connected by a old floodgate. No water was flowing between the lakes this day.

During our hike we passed green trees but also dead trees…

We ended up at a third lake. We sat down there for a while, and enjoyed the stillness:

And finally I captured the sun behind a cloud on the surface of the lake:

Summer morning walk by the sea

Holiday and summer morning

Aaah, summer morning… And a sunny morning too. This is my favourite condition above all, to wake up and the sun is shining. To be able to just get my clothes on, grab my camera and go out for a walk.

Warm morning sun, my soul is calming down and I enjoy every step I take.

Just like my soul, also the water is calm. I can see every detail from the surroundings, reflecting in the water. The sea is blue with small clouds on the surface. Once again I get fascinated about how great artist nature is.

A day in the archipelago

Beautiful archipelago enviroment

Getting some time off on a warm summer day… What should I be doing?

I guess that you who has followed me for a while can take a guess. When I get time off I go outdoors, hiking or just relaxing. This beautiful May day I went to the archipelago for a short walk.

I hope you also enjoy the views!

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?

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

I have chosen to post a photo of a reflection in the water. The photo is taken an early morning. You can see some parts of a boat looking in the mirror:) You can also see the shadow of a life boy in the water. For more entries in the weekly photo challenge, please click here.
