    With my buckets full of blueberries and mushrooms, the trip was a success:

        It took me exactly 11 months on the day to finally get enough courage to share these winter-snow-images from Trondheim:

          11 months ago, on January 21st 2016, Trondheim was thrown into heavy snowfalls.... the city was blanketed in white snow (for a couple of hours).

          Knowingly, if the snow doesn't melt right away, it quickly turns grey/black-ish within a few hours....

          The city government loves spraying salt on all roads as soon as the temperature drops to near 0 degrees, because we can no longer drive on winter roads... funny, and perhaps even tragic, if you ask me.

              Winter is great for pictures, but it is no secret that I can really do without it.... I'm not a winter person at all (grumpy smile):

                    I really like your snowy pictures, even though I don't like snow at all. Trondheim is so beautiful, and I belive I like the one of Nidaros cathedral the best. Thanks!

                      I truly and wholeheartedly agree with you... I don't like snow, winter, darkness and the lack of colors either. Each year at this time, is a horrible time for me in so many ways! I would have traded the winter months with summer in a heartbeat. Everything is put on hold during the winter and, except from the Christmas time, there is no or little color. Trees are dark, grey or black, as is the snow as well.

                        Living in a warm to hot country as I do, the idea of a snowy dark winter is very appealing....though it is more to the point that I dislike most of our 4 month summer that seems to get longer each year - or I get less tolerant of blue skies, dead grass and over 30 degrees C. I loved the Trondheim photos, with memories of Kirkenes in November 2014 on Lofoten......blue/blackness and quiet.

                        I guess the different setting will always be appealing... my friends in Thailand dream of Norway, while I dream of Thailand.

                        What we do not have, will always be what we want. I guess.
