Winter wonderland is here! Every day is full of beautiful frozen creations of nature – where dull and grey trees, branches and bushes are getting a revamp draped in new crystallized icing suites, looking their very best ever…
I know I should have used a tripod for better focus, but hey…have you ever tried to shoot at a steeper place… with a happy super energetic puppy on a leash?
Shot some frosty photos from one of me and puppy’s most visited walking areas. Near the waterfall and river the white frost and “cake icing” was covering almost everything – it just looked so darn delicious …or maybe I was just having a serious sugar craving 😀
This is absolutely one of me and puppy’s favourite time of year – not much snow yet, and not too cold either (-12 to -18 °C in my area), so no frozen camera fingers or toes yet 😀 But I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before it’s getting serious and winter hell is on ..oh,my…
Here it was a lil’ bit steep, and I didn’t want to fall in to the ice-cold water. Puppy had to wait while I climbed down by the fence to shoot… so cool effect with the brown river water against the white frost and ice…
This week I and my fluffy puppy have discovered several nice lakes for scenic walks in beautiful autumn colours, and Agnsjön is one of them. On the map I can see that the gravel road we followed a bit goes all the way around the lake, so I’m sure it also will become a good biking and running lap for me, far away from that damn traffic. I will keep you updated how that turns out.
Mirrorlike autumn lake
Small idyllic cabins are placed here and there along the lake’s waterline, so I guess this lake probable is more lively in summer time, but I really don’t mind the silence here now. A not so idyllic history is that this lake has taken several lives during log floating in the older days and by unstable ice in the winter.
Wonder if she see what I see? My fluffy adorable lil’ girl..
You see.. I just recently got my very first little car, a cute microcar, so our life has changed a bit because of this, as me and my son, together with our animals, are now able to get around and discover places much easier.. it actually makes the everyday life a lil’bit easier too. But I will try not to get lazy and still use my bicycle to get around frequently.
“Time wasted at the lake is time well spent.”
I have been visiting Östalbodarna (close by Myckelgensjö lake) several times after getting back to Sweden from my stay in Norway. And I think I know why I searched and found this place (except from my natural curiosity for new interesting places to see).
I think this place attract me probably because I miss the old mountain pastures I regularly visit in Norway, my mother tought me to love places like this. Östalbodarna (fäbodvall) are based only about 70 km roundtrip by bicycle from my own little farm, so I bike there to enjoy the silence and gather my thoughts, walk around to see and feel the old memories and building details – and of course I get a great cardio workout as well with my MTB-bike 😉
A cosy welcome to Östalbodarna – Indian summer time
Awesome views towards Myckelgensjö lake
The last time I was here the autumn colours where glowing as you can see, and I can’t decide if this place are most beautiful in its summer or autumn robe – both are beautiful in their own ways.
It is a petty this pasture are not in use anymore – but soo cool to discover the old cream separator (Alfa Laval) in on of the windows.. can you see it? It must have been in use up to 1951 when this pasture closed down. And look at those old and solid timber walls, absolutely beautiful!
I rearly dress up or posh up myself to create a picture, I want my pics to be as be natural and real as possible – so during my latest autumn bike trip here I had an old skirt with me just to keep my ass warm when not biking – so that’s is why I had a skirt on here while eating my lunch, I’m not biking in it! 😀
Stau tuned to also see more of the Norwegian mountain pasture I visited this year ♥
