The Oslofjord in Norway was covered with ice this winter due to some very cold periods, and since I travel by ferry over the fjord almost every day I was able to get some pictures of the broken ice.
The ice wasn’t that thick so the ferries were able to travel, but smaller boats had to stay in the harbors.

And here is a picture where you can get a closer view of the ice covering the Oslofjord. Ice and snow can be beautiful!

Here I have photographed a lighthouse on a snow covered headland. This lighthouse is placed in Oslofjorden in southeastern part of Norway and help with keeping the ship traffic in the fjord safe.
I liked the lonely location of the lighthouse and the other buildings on the headland. Doesn’t it look like a great place to live?
The photo was taken with at 300mm (about 600mm in 35mm terms) with a telephoto lens so it was pretty far away from my location.

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.

We have had a lot of gray weather lately so there hasn’t been many photo opportunities, but the other day there was some colored clouds in the sky in the evening. I had to take out the camera and photograph these birch trees with the clouds as background. Also notice the cold mist behind the winter trees.
I recommend that you click on the picture to view it large to get a better perspective of the wide angle (11mm).

We had a crazy snowfall here in southeastern Norway a few days ago. During a few hours the sky sent 40-50 cm down upon us. The media reported about tons of cards ending up outside of the road because the roads were filled with snow. It was like I had moved back to Northern Norway when I was looking out at the heavy snowfall 😉

Here I have photographed an old tractor covered with snow. You get some indication of the depth of the snow when you look on the front of the tractor.
I played a bit around in Adobe Lightroom with the different adjustments to make the picture a bit more interesting.
