    Autumn is over, now for the winter.
    Snow limit has been lowered to about 500 m. near the coast:


    Even lower further inland:

    Wonderful photos Ombugge. I particularly loved yesterday's ones looking towards Slinningsodden. That view changes every minute of every day, absolutely glorious (that's why we like the Quality Hotel Waterfront!).

    Came across this manhole cover along Borgundveien the other day:


    Nice, with the Aalesund City Shield prominently on display:


    This is the only one of the type I have noticed, but then I'm still exploring and getting to know my home town.

    Aksla has changed colour as well:


    Especially with a setting sun:


    We have head 3 weeks of glorious autumn weather with sun from a clear blue sky, but frost at night.
    Some bushes, plant and trees have got confused by this unusual phenomena though:


    Like this Rhododendron that think it is spring:




    Or this one, which I do not know the name of, in English or Norwegian:


    There is also a lot of hedge plants and bushes with bright red berries all over the place:



    Since nobody is picking them I assume that they are either bitter or poisonous??

    Some nostalgia for thos many (relatively speaking) ex Aalesunders on CVF

    OK, some more then:








    Only the crowd (and Borken) is missing, or it could have been St.Hans in your youth??
