Keep cool!

I’m quite new to cross-country skiing, so I am not sure. But I think this is a sign and I imagine that there is some kind of message on it that is intended for me. Being new to this, I found it quite difficult to read.

Maybe it just said “It’s winter, keep cool!” In that case, I got the message.

Infrared morning

I spent the first hours of the day looking out over the water. My plan was to capture the sunrise over the lake. I also wanted to experiment a bit so I brought my converted camera as well. This is one of the photos I took with it.​

Crazy and colorful

I usually try not to get too crazy when editing my photos. I want the pictures to be (at least somewhat) realistic. That rule, however, goes out the window when I use my full-spectrum converted camera. Then I like it to be a little bit crazy and a lot colorful. Like this photo for example. It’s shot in the early morning light after an hour or so of capturing the sunrise.​

Morning view

One of the perks of being a morning person is that you might get the opportunity to enjoy a nice sunrise now and then. I enjoyed this one from a balcony on Langkawi. A rather nice way to start the day.

The house on the corner

I’m not sure why, but this house caught my eye as I walked around on the streets of Kissamos in the early evening warmth. Maybe it was the blue sky above, the white stairs down to the street or the trees in the garden. Maybe it was all of those things…

Evening walk

I titled this photo “Evening walk”, but actually it’s only afternoon. During winter in Sweden, the sun sets pretty early in the day. This day I was actually a bit nervous that it would go down too fast, so that I wouldn’t find my way back. The snow was pretty deep and I wasn’t really in the mood for wandering around in the snow in the dark.

Night lights bokeh

For some reason I have a soft spot for bokeh pictures. I’m not sure where I took this, but I think it is somewhere in Thailand. It’s a little hard to discern…​

End of a day in the snow

The snow was about 50-60cm deep and it was not very easy to make a path through it. Needless to say, we were quite tired after a day full of playing and having fun in the snow under a bright blue sky. The sunset was rather enjoyable too.

Weight of winter

The trees are sparse on the mountain. This one was one of the tallest close to the top, but it seemed to struggle a bit with the weight of winter. I almost felt a little sorry for it.

Hostile and beautiful

When zooming in on the frost from last night, I can’t really decide if it looks intimidating and hostile, or fragile and beautiful. Perhaps it’s both hostile and beautiful…​
