Okay, I may not be a big fan of winter sports. Never went to the Alps for some skiing during winter holidays. The only “winter” sport I have enjoyed myself ever since is ice skating. But, thanks to my university, I know now, that there’s much more to enjoy.
I know you have seen a lot of Hamar pictures from me already, however, this session is focused more on the coastline. And the weather was beyond beautiful (as always when it’s sunny during winter season). There’s something so refreshing in sunny day where everything is pure white because of snow.
Usually when you move into another country, you have those assumptions and stereotypes in your head, which don’t really come out to be exactly true after few months of living there. Here’s what I came to, after six months of residing in Hamar (as a student).
Yesterday was so beautiful, wintery, magical and after all really sunny, that I thought – why not go out and take some nice pictures. I don’t have any specific equipment, but I took some nice ones, just with my phone. It only proves one thing – you don’t need much to do much. So, enjoy my pictures from Hamar.
So, you may or may not know, I’m really into photo manipulation. I love Adobe Photoshop and programs like that – but don’t get me wrong, I like natural photos as well. However, when in lack of good quality camera, you sometimes have to use some tools. That’s how life works. And recently I discovered really amazing app, called Afterlight (it’s free), which I was dying to test out. I thought – why not combine this with Christmas photos? So, here’s the result. I hope you will like the vintage-ish version of Christmasy Hamar. Continue reading “Hamar – winter edition.”
As the winter has come, the snow covered up Norway from every city to every village. It melts down from time to time, but it’s only a glimpse to make it all white again. Some cities are more receptive for snowing and among them is a small city called Gjøvik. It’s located on the top left side of Mjøsa. The city is even smaller than Hamar, however, still has its own beauty to it. Here’s some pictures I took recently.
So as you may, or may not know, I have quite beautiful view outside the window. It inspires me not only to draw, but to create small things like that. Hope you’ll enjoy this little setup, which, I hope, has a nice representation of winter’s beauty.
