Tonight there’s a chance for the northern light or Aurora borealis to dance on the sky! If you have the opportunity, be sure to go out and look up to the sky! The weather forecast doesn’t look promising for Umeå, it looks like there is going to be clouds on the sky. But fingers crossed! 🙂
It’s time for a personal post :).
On Tuesday evening I grabbed myself by the neck and stepped into my running shoes and went out for a run! It’s been weeks since I did that. I felt so light and easy.
A little back story
I had my tonsils partly removed in the end of June. It took about two-week for my throat to heal and I felt fine until I started to workout again. When I doing intervals or cycling or running on a step hill I almost faint, and I had. When I push myself really hard I can’t oxygenate my body. I’m having a hard time catching my breath! When I’m keeping my workout at a lower intensity it’s okay. It’s like I’m completely lost all strength and fitness that I gained over the years.
I’ve been to the doctor and done lots of tests and at the moment there is nothing wrong with my heart or lungs. I’m waiting for an appointment for one last test.
Back to Tuesday evening!
What was the challenge?
Well, I did make it out for a run and second I did run with a headlamp in the dark. I have walk and run the route before but never in the dark. It might seem silly but I know the trails and roads in my hometown, Åsele, I can run them blindfolded. I haven’t live that long i Umeå so everything is new to me!
I did 5,6 km in 35 min. Nothing to brag about but I did it! 🙂
Think in the morning. Act in the noon. Eat in the evening. Sleep in the night.
A morning walk, what a lovely way to start the day and this week!
Yesterday I started the day by taking an hour-long walk. The light was so beautiful and it was warm. Unusually warm for the season!
I only had my iPhone with me but in my mind the camera produces good quality photos. Not as good as my DSLR but good enough.
Below you can view more photos from the morning!
This past summer has been amazing! The older I get the more I love the warm weather. I can’t remember that I been on the beach swimming and enjoying the sun as much as I’ve done this summer! As a child I didn’t enjoy being in the water because I wasn’t a good swimmer. But now when I’m older and more experienced swimmer I love being in the water!
But the water temperature isn’t suited for swimming now in the middle of October. It’s barely 5C and the wind is cold today.
But it’s Friday and I looking forward to the weekend! Spending time with my family, photography and maybe a workout! 🙂
This is a selection of panoramas from my portfolio. I love to make these wide photos! But they aren’t easy to make. My process is the same as when I’m making a “regular” photo. I’m thinking about composition, the light and what to include. And also what not to include.
Which one of the panorama above is your favorite?
The aurora Borealis danced on the sky last night. Today the trees are dancing in the wind and the rain.
Well it’s kind of a “simple” question to answer! Colorful leaves, a couple of water drops and we have a beautiful photo! 🙂
The wind and the rain hits the window today! But I’m dreaming about these cold and misty sunrises. 🙂
