Black and white picture of fresh snow on trees and landscape in Nesodden, Norway

Black and white picture of fresh snow on trees and landscape in Nesodden, Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera December 3rd 2008. Click image for larger view.
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.

    Beautiful. It’s snowing quite heavily here in Vancouver, too. And I do take advantage of the photo opps like you do.
