A cold day in Drammen, Norway

I was in Drammen recently, and it was so cold that it also looked very cold. I could hardly bring up my mobile phone to take the photo. No, it was not that bad, around -20C, but it resulted in a nice photo.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

This weeks WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Surprise. It is not too often one get to capture the moment of surprise, unfortunately. However, some years ago, when we sat on the veranda of our family summer house in Lappland, northern Sweden, overlooking the lake, we got ourselves a surprise! There was a moose crossing the lake, and it is a big lake, so the moose got a good work out. The photo of the swimming moose is not very clear.

We also estimated the place of arrival, and welcomed the moose with some paparazzi photos. I guess the whole situation was quite surprising for everyone involved.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Changing Seasons

The theme of the week at the Daily Post is; Changing Seasons. This photo to me reflects the entrance of fall with all the leaf-less trees. Also, the water looks really cold in addition.

United Arab Emirates – away from Dubai

Just sat in a car from Dubai to Fujairah. I never knew UAE had such mountainous areas. At some stage it felt like we were driving on the moon. Picture taken through a car window, with a Samsung Galaxy.

The Flying Dog

Got this pretty cool picture of our dog when hiking around last Sunday. He is a mixed breed, Chihuahua and Miniature Pinscher (chipin), and like any dog he loves to be let loose and just run around like a maniac.


Travel theme: Liquid

Ailsa’s travel theme this week is Liquid. My entry is from the river Vindelälven in Lappland, Northern Sweden. Quite the place to hiking, and just enjoy the stillness of the forest and the sound of the river flying by.


Special Photo Challenge: Inspiration

The Daily Post today announced a Special Photo Challenge: Inspiration. So, what inspires me? I guess I am a focused, hard-working person. One of the reasons why, is my daily moments where I drift away dreaming of the next time I get to jump off the dive boat to start exploring a new dive site. These moments really inspires me.


Travel theme: Mystical

The travel theme at the Where’s My Backpack blog this week is Mystical. This to me is pretty mystical; get’s you wondering what is around the next corner.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

This weeks photo challenge is GREEN. I took this photo in the Swiss Alps (the Braunwald Area), maybe the most relaxing and greenest place I have seen.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

This weeks photo challenge is Renewal. We saw this hawk/falcon (?) with it’s prey an afternoon back in Hong Kong. It sat there for a few hours, just staring out in to the air and guarding the smaller bird. Hopefully the little prey was brought back to a nest to feed some younger ones and secure a new generation of this beautiful predator.


Travel theme: Bright

We walked the Cinque Terre at the Italian Riviera a few years ago. A stunning place. This sun flower is from one of the villages, cannot remember which one now. But it seems like a good match for this weeks travel theme: Bright


How it should be

After arriving the office soaking wet for 3 weeks straight, one truly miss the days where you could actually see the blue sky. Like this, as photographed with my Samsung Galaxy.


A Walk in the Forest

Meet Rasmus – the ChiPin (Chihuahua and Miniature Pinscher mix).


Stating the Obvious

Well, again the fall came.
