Snow was falling in Gothenburg
and I had to wait for my tram, so
I got my camera out, shielding it from
wet snow flakes…

I am a nature lover and an amateur photographer.
Nature is my main inspiration.Snow and ice, birds and water keep attracting my eye. So do trees amd flowers.
I am also interested in myth and history, especially the history of women, the `herstory´. I love to travel and to visit archeological sites and beautiful landscapes.
I use a compact camera, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28

    Beautiful capture of the night scene, the world looks so quiet when snow falls. One can feel moisture through the wet colours. Love how the snow flakes dance besides the lamps… The magical realm between the reality and fairyland.

  • You are a poet, Zhao…thank you for your lovely comments and fave !!!

    The glowing streetlamps, a blanket of darkness and snow. Oh, so exquisite! Even the bikes are a bit weary from their travels that day.

    I love that wee furniture shop at the entrance to the park. How I wish we could have packed some of the furniture. Good use of time whilst waiting for the tram.

  • Glad my image could provoke all this nostalgia in you!!:))
    Thanks a lot Ranald!!
