Riksgränsen, May 2010

This winter has provided very cold temperatures and heavy snowfall, this means it's going to take a long time to melt away.

We spent an extended weekend in May travelling to Riksgränsen, on the border between northern Sweden and Norway, to take advantage of our last opportunity to do some downhill skiing.

The weather was for most parts sunny and temperatures reached above 20 degrees C. The extreme temperature changes also meant there was a chance of fog, which we also experienced.

Landscape Panoramas from Ruka, Northern Finland, February 2009

We've been experimenting with stitching pictures together to create panoramas. Here are a couple of great landscape panoramas from the Ruka ski center in finnish Lapland.

They were taken with a simple Canon point-and shoot (A570IS) camera, but the results came out better than expected. You should really view them in slideshow mode to make them justice.

Hiking and fishing in Norway, July 2008

Last week in July, we made a 7 day fishing trip to Troms fylke in Norway. It wasn't Your typical summer weather. The fish did bite despite the grueling weather, but they don't grow big in the small mountain lakes compared to nearer the coastline.

Riksgränsen Sweden - Norway, May 2008

Our last ski / hiking trip of the season was to Riksgränsen. Unfortunately the weather wasn't on our side with lots of rain and snow during all three days. At the same time southern Sweden enjoyed record warm and sunny weather. That's so unfair!
