    A short walk down to the farm, Viken, this afternoon gave the following images:

    On the path down through the forest


    Spring is finally in the air. 13°C today


    Before the farm it was time to walk down to the breakwater and old boathouses

    Thank you, Bengt!
    It was just by accident I discovered that sign, but that was also because I have gotten more and more interested in old buildings lately, and thereby looking for details all around the buildings.
    I've been down at that farm, as you've seen, in the autumn and now in the winter.
    I have plans also to visit in the spring and summer.
    For the comparison of pictures, I might take these pictures with my old FujiFilm S-1500, but I must admit I can almost not wait to go down there with my new Pentax K-x.

    I see that you've been walking in the winter landscape and taken some amazing pictures Sterkoder
    It was great to see through all your pictures, which is very good, but I fell for this picture when I came to think of the series of Emil in Lønneberget and his many trips in the carpenter shed.
    Looking forward to see more of this kind. Great.

    Puh...., I'm back!!!
    I managed to copy all my pictures and documents over to the external HD
    Not only that, but I'm sitting here with my laptop on my lap again...., and don't ask me what happened during the last 24 hours(dunno)

    Small christmas nisser playing around with me perhaps....

    I hope and pray you have made those "infamous back-ups".... I know this is a frustrating, a very frustrating scenario....

    If you recall, I had the same problem in Thailand a handful years ago: luckily, the computer recovery store managed to recover some 75%, but I did loose some 25% of images.

    Now, I use double copies and back up's and the wonderful "Time Machine" of Apple.

    Thank you so much, Jan-Olav!!
    Now...., I really looked forward to get myself a new camera before Christmas.
    It seems like my money would have to go into a new pc...., or should I go for a mac now that pictures mean so much to me??
    I've installed an external screen here tonight, but I can't get the right size of things on the screen (tried it all), and what really frustrate me is that I can't get my external HD to work.
    Is it tonight I will loose my hole "life"...???

    Didn't expect to go OT in my own thread, but I had to let it out....

    Well done, absolutely well done!

    I can see that you have a talent hidden in you, a talent which I pray to you to please explore further. There are some really brilliant shots in these new selections!

    The light, the atmosphere... pretty awesome!

    Thank you, Dane!
    Such comments warm a good body in this heavy wintery weather we have here today...

    I am speechless (but I can still type). Your photographic talents have certainly grown beyond simple snapshots of ships.

    Your cabin looks like a good place to escape the world for a while and walk with nature and your camera.

    Smile is total understatement….
    Central Scotland came to a halt today, just when things had seemed to be getting better … and then it snowed since morning, airports closed , traffic ground to a halt, there are no post deliveries and no rubbish collections around here, schools that were opening after a week are closing again, the local buses even stopped running today which hadn’t been the case last week …

    I’m snowed up in the southern suburbs of the city, and I get so restless when I can’t go out walking – all my walks around here – paths and places many of you know from Skyscape – are completely impassable.

    So today I spent some time in Singapore (much to Ralf’s inability to keep up with me!) …and then I did two circuits of this most delightful of walks around Bjerkestrand.

    And do you know, I feel absolutely great!
    Ah Sterkoder, that's the power of your pictures.

    THANK YOU for the great big smile you've given me!!!!!!!!!
    Oh, don't mention it!
    You know, that is one of my motivating results of me posting pictures for all to watch, that some of you might react in that way.

    Well, having finished them all, I can definitely say "Well Done!!"

    Here where it is just beginning to be cold (first frost last week...yes, I have PHOTOS!) the snow--and I know how all you Norwegians HATE snow- but the snow is SO beautiful and makes the landscapes so different!

    I can imagine myself walking down that little path through the woods...how quiet it is. How peaceful. That quiet that only comes when snow dampens all the sounds.

    I can feel the cold on my nose! Chilly fingertips....snow falling off the branches and underneath the scarf around my neck!

    The light in Norway...I keep saying it...is so amazing....So crisp, so beautiful!

    THANK YOU for the great big smile you've given me!!!!!!!!!

    When I look at old houses, and see details like these points on the windows and the brackets above the window...I remember that someone cared to take the little extra time to make the useful and necessary bits decorative. In our world today, I think so many of these little touches are left out...in so many ways and in so many areas. Not just architecture. The "little extra bits" is what made/makes us civilized, I think. So many in the world no longer take the time/trouble to do that little extra bit.

    Okay, off my soapbox. The photos are BRILLIANT, Big S....

    Thank you, Cecilia, for your nice comments!!!

    The thing is, this Viken farm has made me work a bit more with my camera, and belive it or not, the images you see is the first shot and only shot.
    I don't like fireing off 6-8 pictures and then try to pick out the best when I come home.
    Fairly satisfied with my images from today, and I used an extra few seconds to compose and set up my motif in the seeker before I pressed down the trigger.

    I'm not saying this is the way to do it, but when the motif is not going anywhere, as in this case, I'm all for it.

    My goal is to get better and better every day, and by the help of you other photographers here at CVF, I'm learning something new almost every day.
    So thank you so much to all of you!!!

    I can promise you I will take pictures down by the farm when comes both spring and summer.
    What I've seen from my autumn and winter pictures, is that I expect the spring (maybe) and the summer images (surely) to be a bit "duller".
    Even though I "hate" the winter, I now see that with a special lighting, this is the season that gives us the most beautiful images.

    So friends, put on some warm clothes and get out there to take great photos this winter!!!
