When you can’t control how much snow will fall this week (but you really like the snow, your inner child), when you can’t control what you will have for dinner, because your fridge is empty, and there’s only one thing to be prepared (but you’re really craving some steak). When you can’t control if people who you love are in good or bad state of living (but it frustrates the hell out of you).

The city is even smaller than Hamar, however, still has its own beauty to it. Here’s some pictures I took recently.

It’s really hard to find film with solid subtitles, so the best way to is to download the movie and then go on subscene.com and find your subtitles called in Norwegian undertekst.

This time a photo session. Catching a really good sunset in Norway is sometimes tricky, due to the early hours of sunset (around 4pm). It happened that yesterday not only was I on time by the Mjøsa but I also got the cloudless, beautiful sky.
