Anne-Beates vackra vintervärld


The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?

/J. B. Priestley

Hei! Først vil jeg bare rette en varm takk til deg, kjære Towe, for at jeg får være ”julegjest” i din vakre blogg, Livets Guldkorn! Det er en ære for meg.

Litt om meg selv. Bor i en bygd på nordvestlandet i Norge, nærmere bestemt Nesjestranda i Molde kommune. Her lever jeg med umiddelbar nærhet til fjord og fjell og jeg kjenner meg så heldig som bor slik til, for jeg elsker å være ute i naturen – til alle årstider! Vinterbildene er hovedsaklig tatt i nærområdet her jeg bor, mens noen av dem er fra Skeikampen, et skiparadis, ikke så langt fra Lillehammer. Håper på en stabil vinter, med masse snø, godt skiføre og vakkert lys!

Riktig god jul!


Hi! First, I will give a heartfelt thanks to you, dear Towe, that I can be ”Christmas Guest” in your beautiful blog Livets Guldkorn! It is an honor for me.

A bit about myself. I’m living in a village in the northwest part of Norway, namely Nesjestranda in Molde municipality. Here I live with close proximity to the fjords and mountains and I feel so lucky to live like this, because I love being outdoors – in all seasons! Winter pictures are mainly taken in the area where I live, while some of them are from Skeikampen, a ski paradise, not far from Lillehammer. Hoping for a stable winter with lots of snow, good skiing conditions and beautiful light!

Merry Christmas!

A cold wind was blowing from the north, and it made the trees rustle like living things.

/ George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones


She had never known that ice could take on so many shades of blue: sharp lines of indigo like the deepest sea, aquamarine shadows, even the glint of blue-green where the sun struck just so.

/Malinda Lo


You can’t get too much winter in the Winter.

/Robert Frost


Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.

/Albert Schweitzer


Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look what they can do when they stick together.

/Don Dewberry


I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says ”Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.

/ Lewis Carroll
