Moonrise in the New Year


2016 and 2017 was not that good years, and I didn’t blog as much as previously. But 2018 might be different, and I wish everybody a Happy new Year! This pictures are from New Years Eve, that is from around 14:45 that day, when the sun had just set, and a big bright moon was rising. I did not bring a camera on this stroll by the big lake, only my mobile. But anyway, I thought, better than nothing, since I like the colours a lot on cold days like that one.


I learned something. Even if the mobile camera has been so much improved, I will try to bring my camera more often again. Some more picture of Norwegian frost on this link.

I even made a short video of the moonrise, but even these pictures are only by my mobile.

  1. Glad you are back,missed your photos. I now take all my photos on my iPad mini…it does a pretty good job all things considered.


  2. I am glad to see you, Bente. Great moon and landscape, and …I agree the last two years were not the best for me either. And definitely not for the world. Let us hope for a better year, 2018.

  3. Those are amazing photos, even if they are made with your mobile. I love the face of the moon once it had risen. Its face is saying, “Ohhhhh!” Maybe it was surprised to see Bente and her camera! I hope this will be a better year for you and it’s so nice to see you on the blog again!


      1. About your last comment Anneli; the answer would be no. Even if there are less seeking for asylum. Norway is not a member of EU, but we are connected with an agreement that says “free movement”. That is not good for work conditions in our country. But the only people who get new citizens are from muslim countries, 15-20.000 every year. So many because they already here, get family members from their home country to come. They hardly marry Norwegians. So like Sweden and other European countries we are going for a future with not only two etnic grups like the last thousands of years, but with about 200 different etnic groups. It will be a challenge, and I did not vote for this development.


    1. Takk for det, og Godt Nyttår til deg også Ingunn. Jeg har Adobe Premiere Elements 11, som jeg lærte litt på et kurs for noen år siden, men som jeg ikke har rørt på to år. Så det var litt stakkato å komme i gang igjen. Ikke brukt det for mobilopptak før, og det er jo generelt bedre å bruke speilrefleks f.eks. Men så gikk jeg altså på tur uten annet kamera enn mobilens…


  4. WOW! That is truly amazing and beautiful! Thanks for sharing this with us and I hope to see more post from you this year. I did wonder what had happened to your blog. Happy 2018. All the best.


  5. I don’t have a mobile device of any sort, so I will continue to learn how to use my DSLR camera! Still, it is the beautiful image that matters, and these are very beautiful. My favorite photo is the second, because of the tracks in the snow. I believe they might belong to Photographicus norwegianus!


  6. Wishing you a very happy new year Bente. Isn’t snow the most beautiful thing to photograph, I just love your photos, how wonderful and peaceful and beautiful. Thanks for visiting my blog, I sure enjoyed my visit to yours.


  7. Welcome back Bente, and I for certain missed seeing your incredible country through your eyes. I’m not sure what happened the past two years, I just assumed that you had soared with great success with your photography business. I will always be a faithful follower and hope things are better for you now.
