Weekend: Berlin by night


Weekend travelling: A journey from blur to abstract

Once a year,  go someplace you have never been before ~Dalai Lama


These pictures were taken while travelling through one of the beautiful roads in Norway. The storm, strong winds, curvy roads and lack of sufficient light made it very difficult to get a proper photograph. Anyways I got into adventure and now we see the results.

I have not been part of black and white photo challenge but here are my entries. Instead of black and white they are more like monochrome. The images have blue tint rather than pure white due to snow I guess.

I would love to here your comemnts on these images. Are they really abstract or they reveal all details. Do share your ideas.

Thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts.

Season’s Greeting!

Trust that everything happens for a reason, even when you are not wise enough to see it ~Opprah!

Due to various reasons I was not on wordpress for couple of days! And I missed Nurturing Thursday this week.

I hope my reader’s are doing good. In a day or two I will visit your blogs to check wonderful posts 🙂

I hope the hindu’s or even others who celebrated Diwali had good time with family, friends and sweets ( isn’t food one of the important part of any festival). Diwali days were during working days this year but hope you were in festive mood. Here is a picture from our pre-Diwali feast. A pie made from special (sour) Norwegian apples.


My first entry for this week’s photo challenge: glow

Weekend Special 41: Guilt-free

It was cloudy and raining on and off until yesterday. We decided to go for hiking in the morning as the skies were clear and temperature around 13 C. We had around 3 hours in hand of which we used 2:15.

A beautiful river. The near by glacier supplies non-stop water.
Walking into dense woods.
Wild plum trees along the road.
An abandoned barn.
Dried wild flowers. Nature is getting ready for Winter.
Looking back.

As I mentioned in my earlier post,  I donot have my camera with me and pictures were taken with Samsung s3. We covered distance of 8 km and walked upto height of 450 m above sea level. In the last leg the inclination was 12 %. We were tired but not exhausted. ( In last three days we have walked around 20 km 🙂 ).

Note: I forgot to take pictures of the many cattle grids we had to cross. I wonder if they work for sheeps! Has anyone of you seen a sheep crossing cattle grid?

Tomorrow I will be travelling again. Hope you all are enjoying your weekend.
