Seems like the autumn is here to stay.
In this photo you can see some bad weather coming in from the sea. Those “streaks” you see in the horizon, on the photo, is sleet that arrived at my home a few hours later. I’m not a big fan of sleet, but I think it made a cool picture.

I woke up today to snow covering the mountain peaks. It is a sign that autumn will soon be coming here in northern Norway, but it makes a pretty picture don’t you think?

The mountain peaks are 1000 meters above the sea.

I really enjoy walking the coast and observe all the life living amongst the rocks, pebbles, sand and seaweed. My macro lens is a perfect tool to take photos of all this wonderful life.
Here you can see some snails and algae (I think it is gut weed (Ulva intestinalis)). Also notice all the beautiful details and colors in the sand/rocks.

Check out this other macro photo from the coast. It’s of a snail with seaweed as background. Liked the composition on that one.

It was raining all day, but I really felt like photographing so I went for a trip on one of our sandy beaches. Here you can see some typical Norwegian autumn weather with wind and rain.
Hope there will be some more warm days before the winter hits us.
