Cold weather


These last days have been a foretaste of winter. Temperature around -5C. Not really cold thinking about temperature falling down to -51,4C. That's the record in Norway, back in 1884 in Karasjok, a small place far north in Norway, around 69 degrees North. When it is as cold as -50C, you can boil water in a kettle, and if you throw this hot water in the air it will instantly freeze and fall down as snow/ice to the ground. Cool isn't it ?

In my area I have experienced temperature around -35C.

  3. Nydelige bilder til tross for at denne årstiden ikke akkurat appellerer til oss sommerlige sjeler.

  4. Well. That is colder than I like and the coldest place on earth for me was Hokkaido, Japan.

    It was so cold there that a soldier could not pee out of doors as the stream would freeze solid and the soldier would have to kick it or break it in order to keep on peeing.

    I am guessing it is colder than that there where you live.

  10. Det nederste bildet minnet meg på i går, da jeg var og fotograferte i fjæra. Måtte sette meg ned for å få noen bra bilder, kaaaldt bak;-) Men herlig!!
    Kuldegrader fasinerer meg faktisk. Og denne lavskrika(som jeg har skrevet om en gang før)legger egg og får unger i februar ned mot -40.

  16. If the weather does that to the water, then what it does to your butt when you sit down on that bench?:) Those leafs were so cool in many ways.

  17. Ivar : Is it leaves or just ice flaks in the first image, either way its fantastic, love the texture on them.

    The 2nd image is a stunner, very well composed.

  31. And I thought it was cold when our temperature drops 10C. That's about all I can handle - the heat of Africa runs too deeply in my veins. Nice photos Ivar.
