The winter is about to unfold and the water has started to freeze at the lakes around where I live.
I thought the spring had come, but I was so wrong:-)
The day started with sun and a blue sky, but suddenly this scenario became reality. I'm longing for the summer.
The picture is from the Zoo in Kristiansand, Norway. During the summer they have a show with pirates, but during the winter everything is closed down.
It was quite foogy at saturday morning. This is from the Lysebu Hotel in Oslo. My company arranged the Christmas party here and we stayed the night as well.
I took this picture under the brigde in Haugesund.
The last weekend we had a barbeque at the camping site. I was in charge of the grilling and two whole pigs were prepared.
It was quite a success.
This trees seems to have wet feets. They are almost in the water, but are still clinging to solid ground with their roots. This is also from Sognsvann, right outside Oslo.
The other night we went for a walk around Sognsvann, a small lake in the outskirts of Oslo. It was a great evening and the temperature was quite high. People were swimming and having a good time.
Oslo can be very ok during the summer, especially when the weather is like this. My wife Stine sat down to relax and I got this picture of her.
My wife is relaxing
Tonight we went for a walk around Sognsvann in Oslo. There are a couple of miles around the lake and it was a wonderful to stroll along and just enjoy the atmosphere.
She found this tree and layed down for some minutes and I used the camera, of course!
My wife at a consert
Last evening we were at a consert with Bjørn Eidsvåg, a famous Norwegian singer and songwriter. More than 500 people had come to listen to him at an outdoor consert at the Hvaler Islands.

This picture is taken in my hometown Halden in the southernparts of Norway close to the border of Sweden. You can se the back of all the parents og grandparents watching their sons, daughters and grandchildren passing by.
