Yesterday I joined a photography group on a trip to the Ringve Botanical Garden. There weren´t as many flowers as I had hoped, and I also (once again) found that I really need to buy myself a zoom lens so that I can shoot birds too. Anyways, here are a few of the shots from yesterday´s trip.
I just had the most wonderful weekend enjoying as much time as possible outside in the fantastic weather. We’ve been out skiing both days. And since a big camera is not the easiest thing to bring while skiing (and teaching my son to ski), I have had to do with the phone. So here are some Instagram shots from the last two days, and one from the tram stop the late morning before the weekend.
Today the weather was just too perfect to miss the opportunity, so I went in a bit late to the office and took the time to stop on the way to for a few minutes of photography. New snow over the night, and a nice, warming sun made it all so wonderful. (well, it´s all relative, I guess for all of you not living in Scandinavia, our sun in March is not very warming at all )
These shots are taken close to railway bridge called “Skansen” by the canal that comes in from the fjord, and also looking towards the Ila Marina and the lighthouse. (featured in a post not long ago - http://ingaphotography.wordpress.com/2013/02/21/ducks-and-boats-and-some-other-things/)
Maybe some day I need to share a map of the city with you so it would be easier for you all to understand where all these parts of the city are. Some day, not today
It seems as though I have got some dust or spots either on the lens or inside the camera. As you can see there are spots in the upper part. Very annoying. It´s only one year ago that I had my camera cleaned professionally. Well, I have tried to clean the lens (and the UV filter), sop hopefully that´ll help.
And last a shot from the lane “Drillveita”, a lane with old, traditional wooden houses. This lane is in the city centre, just a few minutes walk from my office.
Tuesday in Larvik and the weather was so cold that the frost smoke (hope the wording is right) was floating above the water all day. This photo is taken at about 8.15 a.m. just before sunrise. I took a few photos later in the day too, so I have to share one more with you. Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed being there in this fantastic December weather.
I just had to step out of my theme for this one. The snow is gone, but it´s been below zero Celsius for a few night, and down by the pond these icicles had formed under the railing of a small bridge. Nice, isn´t it? I hope to capture more icicles during winter. For even thought the year and my project is soon over, I will continue to blog in 2013 too.
We’ve had so much beautiful weather lately, but last week we had a bit of rain. Last Tuesday afternoon it had been raining and the sky was dark, but then suddenly the sun shined through and created this amazing light. This is seen through one of the windows in our living room.
