Photo walk

Today I went on a photo walk 
in the Bergen arboretum with our local photo club. 
Here is some of my day's catch.

I Heart Macro

So happy to see bumble bees in the garden these days. 
They are so important to the process of ongoing life.

Autumn 2013, Six Word Saturday, I Heart Macro

- Grey days, sunny days, foggy days -

Did I mention sunny days? Rainy days. Cold sunny days. 
That's our autumn, here on the west coast of Norway, 
and I suppose anywhere else in the world too. 

Here are samples from my photos walks.



























































And a rusty heart to finish off with.

At Rauland, Norway

My daughter Hilde Marie is a busy person. This week (on Wednesday) she started her part time Traditional Norwegian Cooking studies here at Raulandsakademiet, and on Friday-Sunday she has her Personal Trainer exams in Oslo. I came along for the ride. 

I have spent a lot of time at Raulandsakademiet over the years. For nearly 10 summers I took silver smithing classes here, in the heart of norwegian nature. So for the first time I am here without any program, and have actually been able to see some of this fabulous nature. 

Yesterday I hiked up to Falkenuten, a top that reaches 1065 meters above sea level. Not a lot, but enough of a climb for me (and I have to admit I did not start at sea level! :-))

The marches already show signs of fall colors.



Many of Norway's side roads are still gravel roads.



The path up to Falkenuten has been stone laid by nepalese sherpas 
who came over here to teach their craft to the locals.



I met this local on the path. She was both curious and friendly,
and I complemented her on her necklace. 
I refrained from mentioning that the one earring trend 
was over several years ago.






The view from the top is spectacular.
And how about the snow heart on the slope above the dam?






Of course there was also a heart among the stones on the path.



More signs that fall is getting close.



The harsh conditions in this area makes it necessary for the 
miniature birches to grow any way they can.



Back in the car this guy was looking at me from the side view mirror.
