Picture of pine tree totally covered in snow - Heavy snowfalls in South Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera February 8th 2009. Click image for larger view.
We have been having some crazy snowfalls lately here in Southern Norway (I moved to the south from Northern Norway half a year ago for those who don’t know). Some people might think all the snow means a lot of trouble, but I like it. It is fun to play in the snow with the kids and it creates many good photo opportunities.

In this photo you can see a pine tree totally covered in snow. All the snow on the branches show how much snow that really came in a matter of a few hours.
I found the pine tree when I was walking in the forest with snow up to my hip. It was hard walking, but it was wonderful to watch all the untouched snow.

Check out my other photo of a pine tree in winter landscape and other snow pictures here.

    I am missing home just seeing this. Good thing I am home in a couple of weeks and hopefully there is still snow left for me.

    Oh I would love to go to Norway sometime…

    I’m an Erickson, so I figure it is the homeland and all…

    That looks like that heavy snow that weighs the trees down.

    Totally AMAZING! I too LOVE snow, therefore looking forward to moving from Florida someday.

    Its also amazing that you went walking in snow up to your hip! There must be another word for it … walking or pushing? Definitely sweating! LOL

    Thank you for sharing.

    Have just discovered your blog through Skywatch, and wanted to say how much I’ve been enjoying it. Your technical details for each shot are really good for a photo novice like me!
