Happiness and Photography

I have just had the most intense feeling of happiness that I have had in a very long time, maybe several years. Way up in the Norwegian mountains, the midday sun is high in the sky, white, puffy clouds drifting by. The air is still, with the occasional whiff of a light breeze. The dominant…Les mer Happiness and Photography

Timber Floater's Cabins

An evening at the Timber Booms

On the evening of one of the immensely hot days we have had here in Norway lately, I took a trip to Fetsund and the timber booms museum there. I have been there once before, a few years ago. There were some nice clouds in the sky so I had hopes for a few good…Les mer An evening at the Timber Booms

The Sound of Silence

Our hectic lives are filled with so much sound. Noise of all kinds, from traffic, from planes passing low overhead, the neighbour's lawn mower. People talking, be it work mates, family or friends. Overly enthusiastic kids on the bus or that businessman who just has to let everyone listen to his very important phone call…Les mer The Sound of Silence

It's been very quiet around here lately. Last time you heard from me was a year ago, and I am truly sorry about that, but sometimes life just gets in the way and messes up things. Now I am more or less back on track wanting to get into the habit of writing a little…Les mer No, the blog is not dead

Meet the Starling family

I have had a starling family as neighbours for a few days. We had a long weekend in our cabin, and just beside the cabin there is a large apartment complex. This consists of two old, half dead aspen trees. One of them has a lot of storeys with holes that have been occupied by generations of birds over many years. This time […]

Møt familien Stær

Jeg har vært nabo med en stærfamilie i noen dager. Vi var nemlig på hytta i Kristi himmelfartshelga, og like utenfor hytteveggen har vi et stort leilighetskompleks. Dette består av to gamle, halvdøde ospetrær. Den ene ospa har mange etasjer med hull som har vært bebodd av generasjoner av fugler gjennom mange år. Denne gangen var…Les mer Møt familien Stær

Anemone nemorosa, hvitveis

Hva andre ikke ser

I live just a short walk from a patch of woods, and I love to go there now and then to photograph the more intimate kind of landscapes and all the small stuff like flowers, moss, funghi and so on. A week ago I had my first walk there this spring. The wood anemones were […]
