I'm launching my photo blog today with photos from wintry Norway. The photos were taken during my 3-weeks stay there in November/December 2010.
I bought a new digital reflex camera in Norway, and I loved playing around taking photos in the snow!
The temperature varied between -8C to -15C (17F to 5F). I love taking photos, but this was a bit too cold even for me! :)
Winter sky on a cold November afternoon.
... for so to clear the sky...
... and make it into a winter wonderland!
Nature covered in snow.
If I'm not mistaken, this is rosebay willowherb in winter. Click here to see how it looks in the summer.
Stunning blue winter sky and trees covered in snow.
Yes, Norwegians do go by bicycle even in winter!
Benches covered in snow.
A cute coffee bar/shop where you can buy hot coffee & hot chocolate.
Do you notice the table and the chairs? The ashtray? Smokers!
Smokers are not allowed to smoke in public places! That's why tables, chairs and ashtrays are outside coffee bars, shops etc.
Cigarette ends in the ashtrays before noon on such a cold day!
Askim railway station, built in 1882.
Train to Oslo - 53km away.
People going from Askim to Oslo. The train ride takes approx 1 hour.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing some photos from Norway.
