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?

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.

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

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:)

It’s darkest before the sunrise

Waiting For the Sunrise

This time of the year is a dark period. In Sweden, we hardly get any daylight in December. But every year after the Holidays when celebrating Christmas with our families, the light returns.

And it will this year too. Christmas gives us time with the people we love, but it also brings us hope about lighter times. Hope about another summer to arrive.

I wish you all great Friday, where ever you are in the world and whatever season your in:) And remember: it’s always darkest before the sunrise. Take care!

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.

10 av 365: 140 islossning (ice is melting)

Dag 10 av mina 365 i utmaningen. Temat jag valt är islossning. Lite tidigt på året men denna vinter har hittills varit ovanligt varm… Jag hoppas verkligen att vi får lite mer snö och is innan vintern är över.

Day 10 of the 365 photo challenge. Todays theme is “the ice is melting“. It’s a bit early in the season but this winter has brought mostly warm weather… I hope we will get some more snow and ice before the winter ends.

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.
