Wishing for snow

Sweden is experiencing the warmest November, and start of December in 200 years. It has almost been like spring. But today we got our first snow flakes and there is more to come according to the weather people.

A Christmas with Christmas lights towards rain drops isn’t exactly a Christmas so I keep my fingers crossed for a White Christmas.

These pics were taken during a walk yesterday evening, bringing my small Olympus with me.

Hope you had a great start of the week

If you want to test your memory, try to recall what you were worrying about one year ago today

It’s so easy to worry for things that are out of our control. Today many people worry about the new economic times, some are worrying about their kids and maybe some are walking away from great new possibilities –  a great new life, just because of worry.

I think this quote is good to think about when I’m struggling with a decision, both in my personal and professional life, or just being in a worrying mode.

“If you want to test your memory, try to recall what you were worrying about one year ago today.”

Last day of golf – part 2

With a sun set high, and skies as blue as a typical Swedes eyes, we went out on our golf journey last wednesday (as I posted a few days ago). But.. suddenly the weather changed and a really thick fog made it’s entrance over the golf course. If you, like me, enjoy both golf and Photo this is just an amazing opportunity and I actually enjoy the photos more from the afternoon than from earlier on during the day.

Last days of golf 2011

This autumn is really special in terms of weather. Normally we should’ve had some snow and really cold temperatures, But 2011 is so far the warmest autumn in Swedish history, so what could be better than dig the clubs out of the storage room and let them work for a last time?

This Wednesday me and some friends took a vacation day to try out golfing in November, and what a day we picked. The day started out sunny, a little bit cold but with blue skies. As the day passed it got really foggy, but since I’m combining golfing and photoing it was an amazing and beautiful day.

I start of with the morning pictures and make a new post out of the afternoons pic later.

Hope you all have a great Saturday!
