About me

I live in a part of the world called Norway with my wife and two daughters. I worked as a telecom engineer for 20 years. Nowadays I am attending a helpdesk supporting colleagues with computer problems.
I am also a hobby photographer who believe we ought to pay more attention to how we treat our planet and each other.
I worry a great deal about the climate crisis, and I am disappointed that leading politicians in my own and other countries more or less have been ignoring warnings from the scientists for the last 20 years.
I also find it deeply saddening that governments are still making people kill each other with ever more “sophisticated” weapons, instead of working together for the best of all and creating a just and safe and sustainable society for everybody.
Most of the posts in this blog reflect my love for nature and photography. As my knowledge of the English language is limited, I tend to keep the texts short and simple.

Feel free to comment if you like.

Have a wonderful day,

  1. You most certainly deserve it and more,
    just click on the link I gave you and follow the directions there.
    If you have questions please let me know, I will be happy to help you.
    BTW, my name is Donna~


    1. I have been looking at the rules now. I am quite proud and flattered by the fact that you think my little blog actually deserves an award. But unfortunately – for various reasons – I cannot comply with the rules connected to it. I’m sorry, Donna, hope you don’t find that too ungrateful.


    1. Thank you so much for asking, Donna. I really appreciated that! Everything is fine, I guess I have just been so occupied with other activities lately that I haven’t had time to do any blogging. Suddenly the summer turned into fall, and I realized I had to catch up with a few things before winter is back! And I have not taken any pictures either for a while, at least none that have been worth publishing. Hope everything is good with you too, and thanks again.


  2. Just really happy to know that you are ok~
    All is great here, we are getting ready for the little people who will be here in a few days to fill Breanna with Joy!
    Do you have snow there yet?


  3. Jan, over Christmas, I found my father.
    It took me many, many years but at last I have seen his face.
    It is said that his ancestors may have come from Norway, am still doing research.
    His name was Robert Skirvin.
    Thought of you when I saw him for the first time!


  4. Wanted to ask if you ever watch a show on TV on Saturdays called “New Scandinavian Cooking?”
    It is such a perfect place to learn about the area, the culture and of course the food.
    Love it!
