Brøytestikke

If you try to google translate brøytestikke, you’ll get a gibberish answer. This is one of those bamboo sticks that they put along the roads during winter, so that the guy who drives the snow plow can see where the road is supposed to be. In this case it was covered in frost.

Svartisen Glacier (With a Cherry on Top)

Svartisen Glacier, Norway.

Svartisen Glacier, Norway.

Svartisen is a collective term for two glaciers located in northern Norway. The first element is svart ‘swart, black’, the last element is the finite form of is m ‘ice; glacier’. The old ice of the glacier is considerably darker than fresh ice and newfallen snow.

Here’s more info from Wikipedia:

The system consists of two separate glaciers,

    Vestre (western) Svartisen (221 km2), which is the second largest glacier on the Norwegian mainland (there are larger glaciers on Svalbard) after Jostedalsbreen
    Østre (eastern) Svartisen (148 km2), which is the country’s fourth largest.

Svartisen is part of Saltfjellet-Svartisen national park, located in the Saltfjell mountain range.

Water from the glacier is collected and used for hydropower production via runoff into the streams and lakes and through intakes borred beneath Engabreen.

Svartisen.
Svartisen er Norges nest største isbre, og dekker et areal på om lag 370 kvadratkilometer. Under Den lille istid på midten av 1700-tallet var Svartisen én sammenhengende isbre, men er i dag delt i to: øst- og vestisen. Breen strekker seg gjennom kommunene Rana, Meløy og Rødøy, alle i Nordland fylke.
Navnet Svartisen kommer fra den gamle betegnelsen «Svartis», som beskriver den karakteristiske dype blåfargen i isen, med kontrast til den hvite snøen. Ismassene viser et spekter av blåtoner, fra transparent is, til turkis og mørkt blått.
Polarsirkelen går over søndre del av breen. – Wikipedia

The Changing Seasons: January 2016

Welcome to this challenge that’s called «The Changing Seasons 2016». As most of you already know, there are two versions to choose from this year; the original (V1) which is purely photographic and the new version (V2) where you can allow yourself to be more artistic and post a painting, a recipe, a digital manipulation, or simply just one photo that you think represents the month. Anyone with a blog can join this challenge and it’ll run throughout 2016.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry

In general my life is lacking symmetry these days (as you can see in the last photo with the all the cardboard boxes and the mess): I’m moving (again), so blogging is set temporarily on pause/given low priority. Expect more (and hopefully better) photos and posts as soon as things have settled (probably around April). In the meantime I’ll keep the Monthly Photo Challenge: The Changing Seasons running as usual. IMG_5174
