Finally some winter shots! Fujifilm X-Pro1 and X100s

In the beginning of January we finally we got a little bit of snow, not enough to go skiing though. But it brightened up the landscape a little bit. Minus  -7 degrees celcius may not sound that cold, but cold wind from the sea made it feel much colder. My "model" in the pictures below is my wife, of course. We spent some time outdoors, at Mærrapanna near Fredrikstad on January 12. Mærrapanna is a nice place to go swimming in the summer... in the winter? Well, a cup of hot chocolate always helps...But it's a strange thought that in six months time we will go for a swin here. The sun is visible this south in Norway the whole winter, but it stays pretty low on the horizon. On January 12 the sunrise was at 9:02 and sunset was at 15:47. At the darkest day, 21. desember it was rising at 09:12 and setting at 15:17... Still, no reason to complain, go north in Norway and you won't see the sun at all in the winter. 

 

The first picture is from the Fujfilm X100s, the second with the Canon 7D +EF 70-200mm f/2.8 IS MkII lens, and the rest is with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and the XF 14mm lens.
