    Looks like something made of fur, but it's only green "stuff" groving on a rock dried out by the low tide


    And then I found "Smily"...., although he looked a little grumpy today


    Don't know what this is. Only yellow growth making formations at a rock


    A heart, maybe?


    Don't this look like a chicken running away from something? I think so...

    A very low tide made the most beautiful scenery




    My better half, her dog and our daughter down by the bathing place at Viken


    Yepp, here it is...., again


    A shell, placed on display on a rock by me...


    Beautiful colours and stuff show up during low tide

    After a short report from west of Bjerkestrand, it's time to go back to the origin of the thread and walk down to Viken farm again.
    Today, 24th April, we had a great day here, and this was the day Big S took off all his clothes and swam out in the fjord in just his underwear....
    (That is an image you'll never see though, you just have to belive what I say)

    Well, let's start todays walk. Here's an old birch trunk in the forest on the way down from my house to the Viken farm


    And a birch is on its way to blossom


    Down at the farm, I guess you all is a bit tired of the old rusty milk canister, but the difference this time is that you also see the photographer


    Looking at the fields of Bjerkestrand, it's a bit strange to think about three weeks ago they were covered in snow


    New life come to us in the spring


    A couple of Oyster....whatever, on a rock. In norwegian they are called Tjeld

    Goodness what a difference the weather makes to that view – amazing!

    And I love that quirky cottage! Hi wooden guy! – now did you put the rocks there ….or are you just tending the green moss? – Oh, better keep quiet about that or our Ivy will want you in down in England for her garden patch!

    Hehe...., had to smile myself yesterday, when I first discovered it

    Went out today too, and as the clouds had lifted, fog vanished and the rain long gone, you can now see what the fog and rainshowers consealed yesterday


    Then, a few meters away, ther's a place to sit down and enjoy whatever you might bring along...., an orange, a small chocolate, a coffee cup or just enjoy the view out the fjord


    Wonder what the "wooden guy" is up to


    And finally; Do you spot the co*kpit section of that old Boeing 727...?
    The owner put it there a few years back and has plans for it to house a flight simulator eventually. In the meantime this is a favourite spot to be after school for kids in the area...

    Love that boat-shelter!
    …and such a nice-composed photo of it too with the line of boats, then the line of the shore, and finally the house directly above the boat shelter in the centre of the picture.

    It’s impossible to look at the boat shelter without smiling!

    Went out for a short drive in the bad weather today, and took a few pictures.
    The following images is not exactly Bjerkestrand, as Viken farm is north of my home, and todays images are from south of my home.
    Anyway, I might open a new thread when I have more to report from the "south side"

    This is the breakwater where people moore their leisure crafts when put on the sea after the winter.
    In the rainshower/fog in the background, is the huge suspension bridge in the Krifast-system of ferry-free roads in and out of Kristiansund


    Two young canada goose on the beach close to the sub-seabed tunnel in the Krifast-system


    And if you have a nice bench on the shoreline, but no roof to shelter the rain...., why not turn a boat upside-down and place it in the trees above the bench...? Problems solved...
    In the background, you can see the road down to the tunnel

    Thank you so much for nice comments to both of you!!
    These kind of comments are very inspiring and motivate me greatly!!

    To be honest, I was not very satisfied with none of my images when loading them into my pc.
    But after a bit of ajusting and cropping and such, some came out ok.
    Just to give you a small picture of how many I was not too satisfied with, I took 79 pictures today....

    Then..., comments like yours fix it all!! It's like a tap on the shoulder!

    Sterkoder!!!!!! YES, new season…new images on the now famous walk.
    And what a start with the tree stumps and the breakwater, and then I find myself specially liking the vertical one again, showing the clear water and the rocks on the left.

    Oh my (I’m actually typing as I scroll through the images first time!) just look at the b&w of the edge of the breakwater, the milk canister, the spooky old pine tree AND THE SEAGULL STONE!!!!

    Now I am looking at them all again. I scarcely know what to say about those masterly black and white images, except perhaps that they should be framed and appear in an exhibition. You must be so proud of yourself.

    And so was the "seagull" in the rocks down by the fjord


    Also the rusty old milk canister between the tree trunks. Wanted this in b/w this time...
