A Sunday in and around Oslo South East
My dear readers do know it’s a long time since I brought you around in the Oslo area.
You have so far mostly seen “landmarks” and “historical” places.
Hence, I took a tour this Sunday, just to give you an impression of how it looks like just now in the Southern part of Oslo and even further South and East. No landmarks, only how it really looks like.
South East Oslo
Birches in a tiny Wetland, Klemetsrud, Oslo
Low Sun lights up the lawn behind Klemetsrud Church, Oslo South
The Population of Oslo is growing rapidly. Houses are buildt everywhere . Yes, Houses because Norwegians love this form of housing and besides: Close to Nature,-) Like here in a steep hill in a Forest. Klemetsrud, Oslo South East.
Do you know from where we have heating and hot water in our Winter Home? From the Plant above which serves large parts of Oslo’s home with Heating and Hot water: The Source: Recycled waiste. The Smoke? No, it it’s Steam.
South East of Oslo - a Lake
Here we are at a Lake in Enebakk, SE of Oslo Deserted, tiny Island and Rush in the Foreground. The name for Rush in Norwegian is “Siv” which is also a female name.
From the same spot as the Photos before I as well observed a very tiny Island, with a fascintating Pine. This is at the Eastern end of the Lake, and you might observe the dominant wind directions. Yes, from West-North-West.
Going into Farmland
Now, lets go further South East, into Farmers land. How does Farms in South East Norway looks like in October?
Wellcome to Farmland
Preparing for next season – ploughing on a Sunday
I was really fascinated by the Light and Colours here.
And the waving , changing Landscape and ever changing light.
This Photo and the 3 before are taken from the same spot within the same minute. Can you understand why Norwegians allways talk about the Weather?
Returning to Oslo
When approaching Oslo again, I stopped just outside the community border to bring you this view from Sofiemyr. Here a Western View. Two Fiords, which you can not see are between my viewpoint and the Hills in the very distant Horizon.
Back in Oslo 16 km (10 miles) South of Downtown
… and close to Winter Home (5 minutes walking distance) who met me there? Colourful like the Autumn – and proud;-)
These sheeps are the original ones, breeded by the Vikings more than 1200 years ago. To the right you see part of a Lavvo or Sami Tent.
You see the Sheeps: Long fur and adapted to the Climate and Nature
Suddenly, what is this? Here in Norway?
The Peacock couple blocked the road… nipping some Water.
In the last bend on the Road before entering our Winter Home I had to stop again to take a Photo of the wonderful Autumn colours of Virginia Creepers, locally called “Wild Wine or Wild Grapes”.
Hope you got a tiny impression how how it looks like in the Oslo, Norway Southern area, in Mid October 2011.
Wish all my blogfriends a great week to come….
