Photo safari – winter in Oslo

Posted on the 08 February, 2013 at 6:55 pm Written by in Books

At the night of February 5, I went outside to take some shots of the very special snowfall over the last hours (using a small compact camera). Since the temperature was around zero Celsius, the snow had clung to everything like a kind of glaze.  These pictures are taken from my home, first looking towards the street in front, street lights behind the glazed trees, a pedestrian passing at right.


I stand at the top of a snow-glazed veranda staircase.



The snow clings to nearby objects too, like this pine, although with rising temperature the last couple of hours, it has melted a bit, showing only the main part of the the first amazing detail pattern.


The hedge towards our neighbours is glazed.


This night, the temperature is rising, wind blows, and the air remains humid. Misty dots or low level clouds drive through Oslo, with effects like this.



And this.



This is not a fire, in the background – just trees in front of city lights in the snowy night.
