So, finally back from chilly wanderings, and what better way to celebrate a marvelous time in Sweden than with some fantastic photos. We were up in a place called Bjornrike (which means “Kingdom of Bears” in Swedish. These shots are actually all from the same day, when we were skiing cross-country in afternoon. The day was crisp and cold with spectacular lighting and (as you’ll see below) an astounding sunset.

Anyway, I’ll stop prattling.

I’m still on holiday, enjoying a little Stockholm jazz. Normal service will be resumed eventually!

I’m in Sweden for Christmas and new year, firefly escaping the miserably wet weather at home. Until normal service is resumed, here’s a snowy scene from Stockholm.

Happy Christmas!

I mentioned a couple of weeks back that I was going hiking in the Lake District, and this week (partly because I couldn’t think of anything else to post) I thought I’d share some photos.

We were in a place called Buttermere, which is on the western side of the Lake District, and one day in particular had spectacular weather. Here are a few shots I snapped with my phone.

This is Buttermere, the peaks are High Stile and Red Pike.

And this is the end of the lake (quite like the blasted-tree chic)

This is from a little higher up. We’d been walking for about an hour at this point.

A particularly arty cairn.

A couple of my cousins as we stopped for break.

I have a few more, but you know, less is more. To sign off, though, here’s a photo from a week or two later from Rosemary Gardens in London. It’s a tiny park near my house, which is currently in full autumnal glory.

Hope you like them!
