Although the temperatures are slowly rising, and are sometimes above zero, and the sun is getting higher, the innermost parts of the southwest fjords, which are shallow, seem to be becoming increasingly covered with ice and snow. It may take some time for this ice to melt, but spring is on its way, and the next time I visit Hafrsfjord, after being in the UK for 4 weeks, all the ice will have melted. I have been very happy to record the coldest winter in the region of Stavanger since 1951.

I like the way wet ice shines on this picture. Beautiful abstract art of nature.

Thanks for documenting the coldest winter in the region of Stavanger since 1951 for us, Amelia. You eye has chosen a beautiful detail, to show the dormant nature. I hope the area will be awakened and green again when you are back in 4 weeks!
Best wishes, Mira

Lovely plays of the light. Interesting ice-shapes. I`m waiting for the image of this place in a month :).
