    Thanks my friend! You know, when I stopped at Viken that day, I was really on my way to a carpenters meeting due to the renovation we do on our house.
    The meeting also had to include my better half, who was delayed by 15 minutes.
    I thought, why not do something meaningful in those 15 minutes, so I grabbed my camera and run around at Viken farm, which is only a 10 minutes walk from my house anyway.
    The monkfish jaw was almost left unseen in the vegetation, but you know...., my eyesight and motif scanning capacity is ok for my use, so....

    And as I linked to him in another thread, I must say I've learned A LOT from the photography videos of Mike Browne at Photographycourses.biz.
    There are a short video for any thing you could ever need to know about in photography.

    Mr. Sterkoder - I must say, you keep on impressing with your details, your images and the overall selection of viewpoints.

    You have a great talent, not only with pencils but also with your camera!

    Loved in particular the close up of the tooth/jaw on the grass - don't really know why, but it stopped me dead in the tracks.

    Monk fish (Breiflabb in Norwegian) is maybe the best eat there is, with a taste like lobster. A lot of work to clean and filet it, but well worth the effort.
    It used to be thrown back, after first beating it to death. Now it is the most expensive fish in the fish desk, or at the wharf.

    Last year at this time we had a meter, and it was bone cold from October 2012 to February 2013....

    a great place there Svein.
    i think that you van better keep your fingers away from that kind of fish.
    issn't this the time that Norway have to be covered with 2 meters of snow?
    i Always hear you Norwegians that they are so done with that white stuff.
    but there is just so much snow there,as here in Giessen,none.we don't have mountains,so also no snow on higher points here.

    Well, Cecilia...., the snow came last night, but not that much though :-)
    This is a picture from Saturday morning just after 10:00

    So little snow even on the mountains!
    Oh yes! ...familiar guy indeed! I'm glad he's still there to continue to inspire you. In this one there is a feeling of mystery in the trees beyond, and he seems more like a guardian.

    Beautiful photos, those first three, and particularly that third one of Reinsfjell mountain. It has such a strange mood about it, charming but perhaps in the original sense of that word, for it seems mysterious, secretive.
    I have tried monkfish, but I think it was one that I didn't enjoy!

    A 15 minutes quick walk at Viken farm today, gave the following pictures:

    Overview of the camp area down by the farm


    The other way, towards Tustna


    To the south we have the 994 meters high Reinsfjell mountain


    A buoy must've come with the wind and sea current


    The remains of what I belive once swam around as a monkfish




    And finally, a "figure" inbetween the trees. A familiar guy this one Cecilia, rmember..?

    Seasonal mood in the window star, and very special colour combinations in the paint colours of that door.
    And following a photo that is so much about colour, there is a Sterkoder b&w masterpiece, that superbly photographed wall detail.

    Visited Viken farm on this last day of 2013, and brought back home a few images.

    'Motorferdsel forbudt' (engine powered vehicles prohibited)


    A christmas star in the farmhouse window




    The door into the farms carpentery


    The wooden south wall of the carpenter building


    An old method of making an outer wall, not only in Norway I belive
