End of winter

Last week I spent a few days back home in Sweden. One night was spent with good friends enjoying the sauna and taking dips in the almost frozen water.

Heavenly. Somber. Peaceful.

Nothing like the lively dinner that followed..

After the snow, comes sun

The past few days has been real springish weather, not usual for the first week in February. The magnolia in the backyard was just so gorgeous in the evening sun, had to snap a few pictures.  Depending on the angle, more or less flare was produced in the lens. Technically this is a fault, but artistically I love it.

Miles High

This past week, we were again amazed by the majesty of the Swiss Alps. A week in the snow and sun.

For a photographer, a great challenge to deal with extreme contrasts. Here are a few pictures to give you the feel, if they can in any way. No comparison of being there in person though. Get yourself in a car, train, aircraft, however…,  and head a few miles high!

Right across from the Dufour peak; the Matterhorn. The most famous peak in the Swiss Alps.

It looks like my external hard drive just decided to step out on me, so the winter wonderland photos will have to end here for the time being. I wish those of you living in the northern hemisphere a wonderful rest of the winter, and to the rest of you; it’s on its way..

Where Am I?
