A cosy double Bench in the winter

Doesn't a double wicker chair (that makes it a bench!) appeal to you? A nice place to sit in the sun. With a sturdy spade you can even get access, and a little bit of snow on the seat can be dusted away.

You have a place on the quay all to yourself, and if you are interested in boating, there is a whole marina to choose from.

But don't go for a walk on the ice without a swimsuit...

Since these photos also contains several (in my humble opinion) fairly OK reflections, this post is also my contribution to James at Newtown Area Photo's meme called Weekend Reflections. Post a reflection during the week-end, log on to MckLinky via his site - and you're on.

Time for a Gull...

I haven't posted a gull for ages, but here is a herring gull (Gråmåse in Norwgian) that I found on top of a pole on Friday. The temperature was -7 degrees C.

E is for Entrance

Wikipedia says:

Entrance generally refers to the place of entering like a gate or door, or the permission to do so.
In this case it is the Entrance to Bergenhus Fortress, in Bergen. Parts of the Fortress date from 1240, but the picture was shot one late afternoon in December 2009.

The Bird and the Bench

"Not a bench for me - I prefer the snow" said the pigeon and jumped down.
