Flowers from the roadside (2)

At this time of year, there are lots of beautiful flowers to be found along the road up to our house. I had a little walk with my camera today, and I’d like to share with you some of the beauties I found (this is part two).

Cat meets Fox

My wife and I had quite a surprise at breakfast today, when we were watching a cat outside our house and a fox suddenly came out from the woods. The cat’s strategy was clear: Get as high up as you can and try to look as big and dangerous as possible. And the strategy worked, the fox left and there was no fighting. Picture taken through the kitchen window.

World Ocean Day

It is World Ocean Day today. I have selected two very old pictures for the occasion. Both are from the Lofoten islands in the north of Norway. One is from 1974, the other from 1983. These are old color slides that I have digitalized. Click the picture to see a larger version.
