Back from the ice of Svalbard

We have visited the wilderness of Svalbard with the motor ship Stockholm again. The trip included the sight of 11 polar bears and most the other mammals typical of this arctic region. It is always interesting to visit this part of the world and it is never the same sights. I had never before seen a polar bear playing with objects. After two years of eating on a whale carcass the polar bears have to dive down to find food. A young polar bear did not had the skill to do that and played instead with the baleen of the whale.

Please take a look at our photographs from the arctics here.

Please take a look at our video on Youtube

Wild life at Upper Ugglefors, Sweden

We spend our summers at my grand fathers house built 1917. I am now the old man of the house and is only doing service as playing with the grand children of my daughter. We play at 2000 square meters of garden and forest. In a photographers point of view it happens always a lot. This summer, with plenty of sun shine, was no exception.

The picture above is my favorite. Really a David and Goliath situation.

If you would take a look at my photographs from the summer, please move to here.

The red apple

The winter of 2010 has been unusually hard. Not since 1943 the average temperature of January has been so low, according to the SMHI. The global warming is not showing up this year one may notice, but on the other hand the temperature of one winter is not telling anything about the trend for temperature change since the industrial revolution started around 1880. The small birds are no doubt having a hard time to find food when the snow is deep and the temperature is below -20 C. It is a good idea to leave some of the apples on the tree in a year like this, to give the birds something to eat. In our garden in Riddarhyttan we always keep some. This year the red apples were popular, and also giving the photographers a nice color in the photos. Here is a photo play of some of his images.
