Autumn

Within what felt like the blink of an eye, summer was over and autumn was in a rush to turn into winter. I still can't believe how fast this summer was over and yet how much has happened! I have reached my goal of picking 1l of every berry - blueberries, lingonberries, raspberries, black currants…

Times in between

At the moment we are stuck in between seasons. It is not quite winter yet, but not autumn anymore either. The trees have lost all of their leaves after a few windy nights and the days have become incredibly short. At the moment the sun is only up between around 7:30h and 15:30h, so just…

Aurora Borealis

Finally finally finally I got lucky!I got to see the aurora borealis "dancing" over the sky. Bright and clear without and clouds in the way and I even got lucky that the moon is currently not shining at night and there was only starlight in the sky. It was amazing and I will never forget…

Picking mushrooms

One time, I was out and about in the forest, taking pictures of frosty leaves on a foggy day, when I found some mushrooms. Now the mushrooms that I found looked like this: Now I have never been mushroom picking before and basically only know not to eat any mushroom you can't identify and the…

Autumn colors

2 weeks ago, when I started to feel a little better, I took a break from being sick at home and went out with the car to take some photos of the amazing autumn colors I could watch changing from my window. I even put together a little video consisting of drone footage I took…

Healthy again

It was quiet again here for a while. I was sick. Like really sick. As some of you may know, I struggle a bit with health regarding my sinuses. I have always had trouble with ear/nose/throat infections since I was a child and I even had an operation done 2012 to straighten the middle part…

Misty mornings

The mornings are increasingly beautiful now, as it freezes more and more often. We sadly hardly ever have fog in Östergraninge, but all around the village are places where it is often foggy on cold mornings. One morning I was really longing to take some photos, so I went out and first checked with my…

Back in Sweden

After our visit in Germany, we took the way back on 2 days. We started driving in the evening of the 29th August, drove through the night, stayed with Tom's family on the 30th and drove the rest of the way on the 31st. We had a wonderful time in Kumla, it was a supernice…

Late autumn hikes

Recently I went hiking a few times in Ratingen. I found this great website with hiking routes in the area, so it was easy finding a good place to start. On most of the hikes it was raining and cloudy, so I didn't take as many pictures as I usually do. The ones I took…

High Venn

Recently I went hiking in the High Venn in Belgium. It is a highmoor in the Eifel and a super inetresting place. We went hiking on what was the rainiest day I experienced since my time in Sweden and in this area probably the rainiest day since May... Oh how I loved it! Even though…
