Post No. 1000 - A small Celebration

I started this blog in the beginning of 2006 to have a site to place my photos. Much has happened since the first post. 1000 posts is not much compared to many bloggers, but it is a lot more than I had ever anticipated to make. I have learned a lot about photography since then, and the more I get to know the more I find I need to learn. It has been great fun for me, and I hope that I have been able to transmit some of this to my visitors, without whom (and their comments), my world would have been a much duller place.

So I decided that a small celebratory post was in order. I found this colourful balloon stuck in a small stream while out walking in the Norwegian "wilderness" last Sunday. I feel it somehow symbolizes the purpose of this Blog.

And will there be 1000 more? Only time will tell ...

We have spent part of the Norwegian autumn holiday in the city of Arendal,as charming a city as any that can be found in Norway. There are many small waterways with accompanying bridges. And a perfect place for a bit of reflection on life, the universe and everything ...

Mirror Through Windows

Few things beat shooting a side-view mirror through the windows of the car for composite reflections.

Rhododendron in October

We have had a spot of "Autumn Summer" lately, so one of our Rhododendrons (Cunningham's White) has got spring feelings. It usually blooms in May around here.
