Once it was a family's castle.


This is my contribution to Dragonstar's The weekend in Black and White.

A man's home is his castle says the English.

Is there so much snow already?

Woody said...

Are they moose antlers? I like the rustic feel. The corner braces on the window are really intricate.

John said...

It takes me back to my ten years in Denmark.

Greyscale Territory said...

Beautiful weathered textures draped in snow and ice!

Dragonstar said...

It was obviously a much-loved home, and it's still very beautiful.

Carver said...

I love this shot. Winter is such a beautiful time to me when there is fresh snow on roof tops and the ground.

Det känns som Norrland för mig. Perfekt i svartvitt. Anita

Kitty said...

It still looks like it would have been cosy inside :)

Fint utsnitt og bilde av hytten, de har sjarmen i behold og mang en historie er garantert "skrevet" i minneboken.

imac said...

Also like the frosty reflection Rune.

Dimple said...

It is a nice shot. I think I see an open book inside the window...
and I second the question: is there that much snow already?

Birgitta said...

Was there a moose about this hoose...? ;)

Marie said...

Åh vad jag längtar efter riktig snö när jag ser den här bilden. Just nu är det bara slask här i Stockholm.

Malyss said...

You said it all in a title and a quote..I love that! And your picture is becoming an history, a melancholic and sad tale about time passing by...Great post!

Dagrun said...

Det var et riktig hyttete utsnitt ja. Fine kontraster i bildet ditt.

Ha en strålende helg!

Hans HB said...

Flott bilde som klarer seg utmerket i b/w. Ser at elgoksen har lagt igjen geviret sitt...
God helg til deg!

Rambling Woods said...

I love this and wonder about what it could tell us about the past..

Starnitesky said...

I like it topped with snow.

Levonne said...

Nice balance in this shot.

ArneA said...

Your family?
Great to see that winter has arrived in western Norway

Cezar and Léia said...

Magnificent and I'm impressed with the amount of snow!
Have a nice Sunday,
Léia

lynnwiles said...

Is that an antler gracing the peak of the roof? Great shot Rune.

Gry said...

Så synd det står og forfaller. Flott utsnitt og jeg liker lyset som kommer frem i snøen øverst til høyre.

Irene said...

Så absolutt norsk! Godt utsnitt og fine kontraster = like

Ha en fin ny uke!

Irene :)

I think the abominable snow monster lives there.
