My World Tuesday


Welcome to the opening night for My World Tuesday. A new meme hosted by Klaus and rest of the Sky Watch Team. For more posts and rules please visit My World Tuesday .

The choice for my first post is, not unexpected, a winter picture. I enjoy being out on days like this. This is shot back in March 2006.

The winter season is from October to April/May. We don't have full winter with snow and temperature below zero the whole time, but you can see how far north my country stretches in this google earth picture. That's why we have this winterly climate so long.

  6. You really are very far north but I guess the Gulf Stream keeps Norway a bit warmer than I might otherwise expect!

    Have you had snow fall yet? I bet your
    day length must be getting very short now.

  7. wow Thank you for sharing that. I wonder if I could handle that much winter after 25 years of almost none-- we whoop and holler if we get a few flakes of snow I"m guessing that is not your main reaction:)

  21. Ivar- A very nice wide angle image. This reminds me of what is to come. I'm hoping for many sunny winter days in Ohio- we're usually gray most of the winter.

  32. Interesting meme.
    Must be evaluated.
    "my world" is much more than clouds and "nice" colors.
    Congrat to Klaus etc.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Absolutely beautiful, I can see myself cross country skiing on that trail.

  40. Very cool -- or should I say very cold -- or should I say freezingly cold -- or should I just say it would be crazy (for a wimp like me) to be out there in zero degree temperatures... Brrrrr...

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ivar, it's so beautiful to look at, but I would freeze to death! I'll setttle for your wonderful photographs, and hope to visit Norway in the summer! :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. What a marvellous way to start off the theme.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Beautiful place. Love the snow but hate the cold!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Great photo. No wonder my grandparents left Norway, for Minnesota. Where I live, in Southern California, there's little snow.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Just drop another logo and you are covered
    :)

  46. Fantastic photo Ivar, the snow looks beautiful, I can understand why you enjoy it. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Utrolig fint bilde. Skisporene gjør bildet mer levende.
    Jeg er ikke noe stor skigåer må jeg innrømme, men når man ser slike landskap... sukk ;)

    ReplyDelete
  48. It was really cold when you made this photo. The only time I see the snow crystals gleam like this is when the temps are extrememly low for our area.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Brrrrrr.....Wonderful photo! I'm glad you like the snow since I imagine you see a great deal of it.

    ReplyDelete
