Looking forward to winter

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Outside it is 7o Celsius and the rain is pouring down. The wind is tearing  leafs off the trees.

October and November are two long months with variable weather. Forecast for the next two weeks is miserable. I DON’T LIKE IT !

I want it like this picture. This frozen lake is called Leksdalsvatnet, just south of Steinkjer.

(I shot this with another camera 3 years ago)

  4. Kjempe fint vinterbilde!
    Nåja, for min del så kan den vente litt til. Men er enig at vinter med snø er bedre en regn og vind.

    Ha en flott uke!

  7. For those of us from nordic climes permanently banished to the antipodes that picture is balm to the soul.I love crisp winters with thick snow and ice flowers on the windows...delicious aromas issuing from the oven and crackling fires. These things for me are what dreams are made of.

  11. It's -5 C right now but no snow and it could be a while before we get it... sometimes we get cold temperature for so long time but see lots of snow in the mountains... we drove up yesterday and the pass had 20 cm of snow and we did NOT expect that... we were not prepared!!
    No snow tires on the JEEP yet... LOL

    That's a beautiful picture IVAR... I will think hard for snow your way!!

  12. Ja for ikke å snakke om hvor herlig det er å gå over denne isen, en sen kveld med fullmåne. Vel får ta ett bilde jeg da...neste gang jeg vandrer over denne isen....men da på andre siden.

    Gleder meg til sånne dage når jeg ser akkurat sånne vinterbilder.

    Ha en fin dag

  17. Vel liker jeg både å gå, og stå på ski. Kjenne at det knaser under skoene når det er kaldt, bli kald på nesetupen, dra lua langt nedover ørene. Vel liker jeg når vårsola atter begynner å varme, når man kan kose seg med mat og varm drikke utendørs..., men du er fader ta ikke riktig klok du mann!!! Vinter NÅ???

  18. i am definitely looking forward to winter, but i hope i only see this kind of winter at an organised ski field! greeks are not very good at coping with snow...

  19. I like winter too...but I'm not unhappy with the beautiful fall weather we're having right now in Ontario, Canada. ;-)

  20. Har du fått nok av høsten allerede?
    I mine øyne er dette den vakreste tiden, til tross for litt regn og vind. Men så er jeg ekte Bergenser og da! Så lenge det ikke regner i over 100 døgn i et strekk, syns vi her på vestlandet i grunnen at vi har vært nok så heldig med været ;)

  21. May you get your wish. ;-)

  23. Hello Ivar. I found your blog via Fugazi's blog. I have also seen your comments on Abe Lincoln's blog. I love this shot. I enjoy winter and snow, just hate driving on ice! LOL Our weather has been unseasonably warm for October. it is 11:30 at night and still 64 degrees F. It has been in the 80's for a couple of days. You have some very beautiful pictures here. I will be back to see more.

  24. Yes you are right, we should switch over to the wintertime right now.
    ... or I can just have a look to my old winter-slides.
    Have a nice week
