Today we decided to take a walk out in the forest. Eirik always asks me if I want to join him and Nemo out for a walk, let’s just say I don’t always say yes. I am lazy, but when I first have gotten my winterclothes on I don’t regret joining. It’s just that stage where you decide if you’re going to bother or not that often hinders me:P Might sound silly but ey.
So when I go for walks in the forest, I usually end up sharing some photographs with you. I am sure you guys are starting to get familiar with this forest now as I have shared photos from it so many times. But taking pictures makes for a much more enjoyable walk because you stop and look at things, rather then just walking around.
We didn’t take a super long walk today, it was a bit chilly, we took around 5k steps according to our app on our phones 😛 Well Eirik took around 4.500, and I took 5200. The difference is, I am a short person pff..
|Yes we can even take selfies on our walks!|
I tried taking some nice pictures of Eirik, but he is always on the move or making strange facial expressions. When I finally nail it, the damn focus is messed up. BLEH! But I quite like this one, even if he doesn’t.

We saw some fun things while walking around. We actually found mushrooms. I didnt’ know there were shrooms in the forest at this time of year but, there was! A cute little mushroom. We imagined there was a little creature living in there, looking back at us.

I took several photos of this shroom, cause it was just so cute. Eirik poked it with his finger and a cloud of dust or gas came out of it, was curious to look at.
|Imagine a little creature climbing out of it, staring at you with a little smirk|
Nemo loves our walks in the forest, that means he can have as long a leach as he likes, running around sniffing, peeing, poking stuff with his nose and all those sticks to gnaw at! Sometimes he is a bit optimistic when it comes of the sizes of the sticks he wants and today he went for a rather big part of the tree.
He really wanted this stick, and unfortunately the picture was blurry, but you can see how eager he is. My cute little baby Nemo.
|I want this stick now!|
There is many things to enjoy in the forest, but we came to an opening in the forest, out to a field and I decided to try and take a picture that would be more pleasing to the eye. I am no expert at taking photographs as you clearly can see. And I have little to no knowledge about it. But I did take a photo that I really liked. Part snow, part forest and part sky. The snow is so white, if it had not been for the ski prints/tracks in the snow you would hardly see the snow.

We found this hole in a tree, I am not sure, but I think it was made by a woodpecker ? Well, it was interesting for me, so yes I took a photo, you be the judge if it’s a woodpecker or human made. The tree was clearly dying though which is a same.
|Woodpecker or man-made ?|

I am glad I decided to join today. I usually am. When we walk in the forest and I have my camera, it is like we have transported to a different planet. It’s peaceful, the “other” world doesn’t exist. I forget about all the troubles, the noisy digital world, tv, computer and the comfy sofa that is at home. Yes I might have a camera in my hands, but as I said, it helps me really look at the things around me like small shrooms, footprints, smells. And I ask questions non stop, about the things we see around us. I really wish I could become a person who spent more time outside, I think we all do at times, but we forget that feeling we have when outside as soon as we are inside in our comfortable sofa, which is a shame. I think we should all spend more time outside , it can indeed be a magical place if you just use your imagination.
But now it is time for me to enter another type of magical world and that is World Of Warcraft. As I resubbed I have enjoyed my time, unguilded and alone on a small server, doing my own thing at my own pace. We will see how long I last this time ey, one month ?
Did you know, my eyes have slightly different colors ?
