"10 on 10" ...January 2017, where is King Winter hiding?

on 09 januar 2017

Happy New Year everybody,

New Year and new possibilities, so I decided to do a change. I usually take my camera to the fjord, I love the coast, the smell, the birds, the sand, the rocks, but this year I will challenge myself to take a few of my walks to the forest. It is just as close to home as the beach, but in the forest there is not possible to get the view to a horizon, to dream out. In the forest I think I need to focus closer to where I am and that is what I have been trying to manage in my life for a while as well, maybe the forest will help me focus.

I must admit that I, almost, did not pick up my camera since October last year, only my iPhone camera, but today I brought my DSLR out. Today I wanted to show you King Winter in the forest surrounding my area, but King Winter glimpsed with his absence. I was lucky enough to find a small area in the forest with a thin frozen coat covering the trees.

The river breathing in and out the cold air

There is no tracks of animals in the forest this day, only my tracks.

And this looks like last year´s christmas tree

I once heard that this is a sign of really fresh air and great soil.

And this part of the forest is the most magical to me

Suddenly, out of now where a house showed up, at the edge of the forest, hopefully there are some really happy people living there, so close to this beautiful forest.

Time to hug the tree good bye, and thank you for now.

Anyway I really enjoy hiking in my area and a day in the forest for bringing back some pictures was the best I could do for my Soul this January. I hope you enjoy joining me in this magical forest, think about the fairy tales from Scandinavia with a few Trolls, Huldra and other nature spirits as you look at the pictures. And when you are finished hurry over to the lovely images of the talented photographer Kim Bajorek and have a look of what she has been up to lately. I also want to recomend you to have a look around the blog circle, just follow the links in each blog and suddenly you will return to me - and if you like what you see, please leave a comment for us :-)

- Lots of LOVE from Trini in Norway

What a beautiful forest, it does look magical, no wonder you were thinking of trolls while there :-)
And looks like the mild winter is not only here in SoCal.
Your portrait at the end is beautiful, I can feel so much emotion on it <3

Yes where is the vintner hiding in Norway? Maybe it's here with us in California. Like your mood and color tones in your photos.

Hello Trini! What a beautiful part of the world you live in! I love the pictures with the bit of frost on the pines--they just feel peaceful. Looking forward to getting to know you more this year.
