Mangosteen & Night Shots from Oslo

Went outside to see if I could shoot some photos of the full moon tonight, but didn’t succeed. Ended up with these night shots of Oslo and a picture of the tasty fruit mangosteen instead:

“The purple mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana), colloquially known simply as mangosteen, is a tropical evergreen tree believed to have originated in the Sunda Islands and the Moluccas of Indonesia. The tree grows from 7 to 25 m tall. The fruit of the mangosteen is sweet and tangy, juicy, and somewhat fibrous, with an inedible, deep reddish purple-colored rind (exocarp) when ripe.” (Wikipedia)

  1. Wonderful reflections in the water, but I really like the second one too! That is a fruit I’ve never seen… there are so many of those exotic fruits in the grocery stores nowadays … I’m going to try the dragon fruit very soon.

        Yes – as a danish guy with business around Europe – I really just love to visit Oslo also stayed a couple of days – it’s great – but I couldn’t make it permanent – I fell the same way to Copenhagen… ๐Ÿ˜‰
