Found this stream when I was walking in the forest and since I love photos of running water I had to take a picture of the stream with autumn colored leaves laying around.
I used a longer shutter speed to create the “foggy” effect on the water.

Another picture I took back in February. At this time of the year the sun is only shining for a hour or two and in this photo the sun has disappeared below the horizon. The golden reflections are coming from sunshine higher up in the snow filled mountains. It was a very beautiful sight.

Look closely at the picture. Doesn’t the stone look like a crocodile head?

As you can see in this photo, summer has not completely left northern Norway.

These rocks are part of an old seawall that protects our boats against the wild storms that can hit northern Norway in the autumn and winter.
You can see the seawall with waves beating against (and over) it in this photo and in this photo with more calm weather.

I got a comment on Flickr, by BobG, that this picture would be great as a wallpaper on a computer screen. Steve, author of the great blog cyrum66, recently wanted another picture as desktop background (thanks for the donation Steve!).
So I got the idea to make this pebble picture available as a free download.

Download the 1024×768 version of the picture here. Drop me a line if you should need an even larger version. I got it up to 3264×2448.
The picture is only available for personal use and should not be used commercially.

I would like to hear what my readers think of this idea. Think it can make my blog more popular?

What you see on the picture is me experimenting with a long shutter time. I placed the camera on a tripod and made the camera take the photo for 10 seconds so small waves would roll over some of the pebbles. This make the foggy effect you can see on the right side of the picture.
