Today I was testing out my new hiking shoes. I had initially thought about taking a walk around Maridalsvannet, but since it has only been 2 weeks since my cast came off (I broke my ankle on the 28th of May in a paintball-war) I decided to take a shorter trip. Sognsvann is a scenic little lake in Oslo. One thing that I really love about Oslo is that most of the city's territory is actually forests and lakes. So, yes,...whe are still within the capital of Norway...
So, I've been enjoying a sunny afternoon. Afterwards I met up with friends and family and had a picnic inn Slottsparken.
I'm feeling fine and my ankle I think is healing nicely, although it is a bit frustrating that I can only walk at a slow pace...but a slow pace is excellent for enjoying nature on a bright sunshiny day!
These are some of the photos that I took last weekend when I was in Geiranger, Norway. The absolutely stunning waterfall is Storsæterfossen. Overlooking the Geirangerfjord. My second cousin, Trond. admiring the waterfall from inside it! Quite steep, slippery and wet, but most definitely worth it. All in all a great trip - definitely recommended
I'm really looking forward to filming some of my hiking trips and vacations. The camera is light and easy to bring along and the carrying case can be made rainproof by taking out the enclosed covering. All in all quite excellent for my modest film-making needs.
A photo I took this summer in Sykkylven (on the west coast of Norway) on a misty hike. There might be a financial crisis going on, but I'm feeling quite calm. To me this picture expresses that serenity. There is a certain beauty in a misty landscape. That might be why I enjoy the paintings of Caspar David Friederich

I work nights at a high security psychiatric ward so it is nice to finally be able to enjoy the sun . I've been outdoors for nearly 11 hours. My feet ache, I'm slightly sunburned and I feel wonderfull - totally rejuvenated.
Working nights and not really getting much dayligh has a tendency to drain out nearly all of my energy. That is mainly one reason that I don't blog much and nothing to demanding. I haven't really had the energy for it.
