Autumn in Norway

I haven't shot many "autumn photos" this year. But that can of course be remedied, so here is a few showing that autumn can be wet and fascinating at the same time.

Mist and rain may hide some of the glorious colours we associate with autumn, but they are still there, only a bit of mystery has been added.

The rain may make the ground you walk on sodden and wet, but every small creek literally springs to life.

An incomplete bridge is just plain fun.

Even our local castle gets a veil of mystery and subdued colours.

Visiting Spain

It has been a bit quiet around here lately, once more. But I still have my excuses: I have been busy, and I have been away. This time it has been a strictly family holiday to the Spanish island Grand Canaria, one of The Canary Islands. Therefore 95% of the photos I shot were meant for the family album. But one or two may still have a more general interest. 

Here are three very different boats an hour before sunset just outside the gates of "our" apartment.

 Not all the people you meet carry cameras - some bring a whole canvas.

Some have found a veranda that suits them just fine.

And some are just hanging around.

And I couldn't resist showing the family's little princess enjoying herself in the sand.

September Road

The Road goes ever on and on
  Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
  And I must follow, if I can,

Pursuing it with weary feet,
  Until it joins some larger way,
Where many paths and errands meet.
  And wither then? I cannot say

Bicycles in Germany

Bicycles seemed to be much used in Germany. This guy in Tauberbischofsheim seemed to have borrowed one from his wife - I sense a story here ...

Many tourists used bikes for transport. This one is entering one of the old gates in Rothenburg.

In Rothenburg bikes of all kinds could be found.

Early morning crossing of the street in Füssen.

I must admit that in this photo from Dinkelsbühl, the bicycles are only an excuse for showing off the car ...

Have a nice week-End!
