December 2013

The last month of 2013 has been abysmal for photography.  It has rained almost incessantly, and still is as I’m writing this, so I haven’t been out and about half as much as I’d have liked.  We did have one decent snowfall and a couple of dry days but that’s about it.  Just as well I decided to do a review of the year!  Here is December such as it is, and I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all my readers, followers and anyone else who stumbles across this a happy, peaceful and prosperous 2014…

Art
The month started with a visit to a Street Art exhibition at USF in Bergen.
Snow
A few days later came our only significant snowfall of the winter so far.
Sun
The day after we also had some sunshine which showed off the snow at its finest.
Lake
A familiar view from the local lake was transformed after the snowfall.
Creek
This small creek looked magical in the snowy sunset.
House
The view outside the house was a wintry treat for all of 48 hours.
Haukeland
A couple of days later the snow was gone as this view of Møllendal cemetery shows.
Dry
A rare dry day saw me go down to a nearby river for some shots of the woods and water in winter.
Sunset
Near sunset on the same small stream.
Xmas
And then it was Christmas.
Rush
Xmas rush?
Lights
After a few beers the lights were a bit blurry!
Kids
At least the grandkids were in the festive spirit.

  1. I’ve sure enjoyed your photographic recap of 2013 – your succinct comments are perfect. I especially appreciated seeing the sun through your photos again; it reminded me that all is not permanently dark and dreary in our (normally) beautiful area of the world. Godt Nyttår!
