Picture of frozen field and rimed trees - Winter in Southern Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera January 1st 2009. Click image for larger view.
I was out walking in the forest early today and I came across this field that was frozen. I really enjoyed all the grass that had frozen in the water and the trees standing around the field covered with rime.
We are having a cold period with -12C so everything outside is covered with frozen water and gives me a lot of photo opportunities.

Happy new year everyone! My resolution for 2009 is to take way more pictures and post them on this blog as I have lately been a bit lazy when it comes to photography. Don’t miss the Photos from Northern Norway 2009 calendar and my other photos with ice.

    Oooh -12? Definitely not somewhere I’d want to be! I’m impressed that you take walks in that weather!
    It definitely paid off though 🙂 beautiful shot!

    Wow…beautiful. The grass looks like balls of soft yarn scattered on the ground. Definitely worth the -12C walk. 😉

    Happy New Year!

    Very atmospheric photo… It seems like it should be in a movie, perhaps the opening scene, with an ominous deep rumbling music playing…

    I wish you all the best in 2009! Thank-you for sharing the beauty of your area with us through your photos.

    Beautiful picture. We´re having similar temperatures here now. I guess one must be a little crazy to go out walking on the morning of the 1st of January… or a photographer.
