  31. Hittade din blog idag av en händelse. Bor i grannlandet Sverige, på västkusten. Blev förtjust i alla dina vackra bilder.
    Så fick jag se alla bilder från Levanger. Där har jag goda vänner och har varit flera gånger.
    Har spelat golf på den fantastiskt vackra banan Trones.
    Kommer att titta in här fler gånger!

  32. Det tredje bildet er så vakkert at jeg kunne ri rett inn i solnedgangen sammen med deg. Du och jag!

  47. Ivar, my 7-year-old son in a prayer before bed the other night thanked God for showing us how pretty purple, blue and orange are when they're mixed up in a sunset. I'm sure he had a sky like yours in mind! Just beautiful. :)

  63. Nydelige bilder! Det må ha vært et fantastisk skue i virkeligheten.

    Jeg pleier ikke å nyttårsforsetter jeg heller, men etter mye stillesitting i julen og bukser som sitter litt trangt i livet, så kaller vi det heller førstehjelp.

    God helg til dere begge fra meg:)

  67. Å ja. Har endel bøker om vær og vind, og skyer. Skyer har jeg vært interessert i hele oppveksten. Vi hadde en bok hjemme, den er ganske utslitt nå. Skyer er så gøy, og veldig viktig for været og,-)

    Satt senest i går kveld og leste om skyer. Fasinerende:-)
