Lunch walk on a cold day

I will try to take the time to go for a lunch walk with the camera once a week. This last weekΒ΄s lunch walk was on a cold, but beautiful day. I walked towards the Nidaros Cathedral and down to the river. I shot both in colors and in b&w.

trondheimsrosa“The Trondheim rose” (Trondhjemsrosen) is a city symbol for Trondheim. Chosen because it has been in use since the middle ages, probably as a symbol for Saint Olaf that was buried close to where the Nidaros Cathedral is situated today. The rose is the rosa canina, commonly known in English as the dog rose (sounds brutal to me πŸ˜‰ I found this particular rose at a small monument down by the river Nidelva.

icy down by the riverBecause of the cold there were lots of ice down by the water.
