From snowy Sweden with Love

I often tell about quality time with my wife. This time it’s about a whole weekend and what I found worth capturing with my Nokia mobile phone camera. Let me start with a breath taking scenery from our trip back to Norway on Sunday afternoon.

This is a rest place where we often stop to have a snack on the road on our trip back and forth to our vacation house in Sweden. It’s a beautiful lake where children are playing in the water during their families break in the summer time and sometimes even we take a swim here then.

Here you see the bench where we have our picnic. This time of the year it is mostly below freezing and just a place to pass by and remember. But in four months I will be back with a report about a lovely, sunny and warm beach where you can take a break and relax before moving along. The picture on the right hand side is taken by my wife during my capturing. She says she soon will be blogging about the hazards of living with a blogger… even a bitscary life sometimes :-)

It takes four or five hours to get to our house in Sweden. This time my wife and I were alone so the time went by very fast as we finally had some time to talk without any interruptions. I feel it is good and important to strengthen our relationship by talking about all and nothing… actually not talking at all is nice as well. Above you see some of the winter roads in Sweden. I was more attracted to the sky and the wonderful scenery created by the sun.

Well installed in the house Friday evening, we made a lovely dinner together – another quality time and one of my favourites. Outside on the balcony the next evening just after sunset, I saw the moon and had to capture it with my phone of course. I was thinking: these branches will soon start growing buds and soon it will be summer and we can play golf again. There is a lot of wild life in the neighbourhood and it’s interesting to follow the animal’s movements as you can see the footprints in the snow. In the picture to the right you can see a bunch of bunnies have had a blast last night.

This blog is about the significant four seasons in the Nordic countries. So far I have only been able to show you the beauty of the winter wonder land. There will be spring soon I know… and then summer… but first I like to enjoy the winter and its beauty and I do hope you like it as well.
