Out and about

In January I was finally able to use my new camera and of course used the first opportunity to go out exploring with it. I took one of my favourite forest roads, but took a turn that I never had taken before and ended up in the most beautiful area, at a lake right by…

Beautiful winter sunsets

Most of this winter was a living hell regarding weather. The last few months of 2019 were incredibly dark and grey with hardly any clear sky at all. This additional to the very little amount of light hours everyday made the darkness hard to bear. Not even my beloved stars were visible on most days,…

A period of warm weather

The temperatures have risen and frost and snow are long gone. Instead we have been left with wet/dirty roads, incredible amounts of puddles and ice still on the lakes with a thick layer of water on it. It does offer some really cool views, especially for thos with a drone. On one of the dark…

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…

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…

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…

Berry picking

Since most berries ripened while I was gone and have already been picked, I didn't pick a lot of berries after coming home. But I spent one day before travelling to Germany by a lake, photographing and picking some blueberries there. I was asked a lot if there was a lot of blueberries this year,…

One night outdoors

The other weekend I spent a whole night outdoors, because I wanted to see how dark the nights can get nowadays and if there is some fog on the lakes. Tom accompanied me and we drove to different places to check out the surroundings. We knew that there was gonna be a huge amount of…

Another lake – Abborrsjön

Last year when I was in this area of Sweden in the summer, I had a little stop at a lake. and ever since moving here I was very curious to visit that lake again, because it is not very far from my home. It would have been super interesting to see it in the…
