Finally some nice weather with sun, blue skies and warmth, at last I can get going with the Alphas generating loads of nice imagery to share with the world now that my joints will begin to cooperate a little. The last two days have been filled with excursions together with a friend into some nooks and crannies of the county where I live.
One of the nice places visited today was a small lake called Ljusgrytan where a lot of people ventured out to enjoy the weather and fish for trouts. I got some really good shots while walking all the way around the lake, for instance this strapping young lad trying to hook a nice fish or two.
Bored out of my skull with no events to shoot and to top it all off lousy weather as well so nature walks with the Alpha is out of question. Not even the traditional Walpurgis Night celebration will take place this year, no assemblies with more than a few spectators are allowed because of that Chinese affliction. Fuck the Chinese. At least I can dig out photos from last years celebration trying to remember the feeling of welcoming the arrival of spring.
In fact, this is the second year with this celebration to welcome spring is cancelled just as so many other events. This year as well as last year will be forever lost for me as an event photographer.
Two weeks ago we finally got some warmth and blue skies, that lasted for a weekend and then it went back to being cold and mostly cloudy. There has even been snowfall a couple of times since then. I do believe the weather Gods are amusing themselves on our behalf.
Hopefully it’ll soon turn around and the warmth will come. Then I can at last get a little better in my joints and get going with showering you with great pictures. At least I got a shot of a colts foot with a flower fly on top of it that weekend a fortnight ago.
It’s been a little quiet here lately, the weather has been wreaking havoc on my back and joints making it virtually impossible to work with images on the computer. Not too many new shots either, with this weather we’ve been having there haven’t been many photo opportunities around. Instead I have been as busy as it has been possible working with the crypto side of things.
The end of the year is fast approaching, hopefully there will at least be clear skies during the last night of December so I can get som decent shots of the fireworks. Otherwise December has been mainly grey, grey, grey and grey with a couple of shades of grey thrown in the mix as well. Coming next week I’ll be doing my own version of an annual chronicle and give you a dozen posts with the most liked and reacted to images month by month. I will also do a long overdue overhaul of the company website, loads of new stuff will be arriving there in 2021.
