Here I have photographed the landscape outside my house in Nesodden (Akershus county in southeastern Norway) after a fresh snowfall. The snow covered everything with a thick layer of white crystals making the landscape calm and quiet.
Fresh snow can look very good and makes many photo opportunities. I turned this picture into black and white since the scenery didn’t contain many colors and BW often fits snow sceneries very well.
I’m a bit surprised with the winter here in southeastern part of Norway as I thought it would be much warmer than I’m used to from the north. It has actually snowed more here than the average Northern Norway-winter, but you don’t get the cold winds from the arctic sea here in the south.
