Sunday

Skutberget is a recreation area west of Karlstad. It offers swimming, camping, trails, lighted trails, fitness center, sauna and cafeteria. We often visit Skutberget to take long leisurely walks in winter. There are barbecues with wood to grill in the middle of winter too. A sunny day many take thermos with coffee, sandwiches, cakes and sitting, sun and just enjoy.

When I came to Sweden, I did not understand why the people, in the middle of winter, sitting everywhere and “looking” in the sun. After a couple of decades myself seat as soon as the sun comes out 🙂  We have so little sun in the winter.

Earlier, when I was traveling a lot, I thought that as tourists arrive some knowledge about the country that him have visited. Today, when I live in Sweden, I realize that being a tourist and would live in a country is not the same. As tourists do not know anything about the real life of the country you’ve visited.

There were many of people on Skutberget yesterday. The wide open spaces attracts walking on ice. In some places in the ice began to create cracks. For a couple of days would not be safe to move away from the coast.

Gray gloomy days never go away

Gray gloomy days never go away.  Winter is definitely not my season. I have no inspiration for photography.

Until now I put on the blog more images of ice but all shots were in color. So, I got idea to shoot ice in black and white technique. For me personally reflection of the sun through the ice is more interesting in color photos.

Wandering through the Internet and came across a new snapshot of Belgrade. Video woke up a wish to go to Belgrade, but that will have to wait.

Winter pleasures

Extremely cold winter days are continuing, however, unlike in previous months, the days are sunny. No matter what the outside is very cold days will be uncomfortable in the house and enjoy the snow looking at it through the window. When the lakes freeze many take skis and driving on a frozen lake. We went to a nearby Peninsula Hammarö on the edge of Lake Vänern. By the lake there is a Kilenegården.  It has beautiful nature with lots of jogging and hiking trails, sports hall and coffee there too.
