Follow The Rabbit

Please follow the Christmas Bunny and hop along to
DawnTreader’s NEW Picture Book 

I’ll soon be running out of storage space in my present blog account. After weighing some pros and cons I decided to take the leap and see what happens if I try to move this blog into a new account (http://dawntreader-picturebook2.blogspot.com). 

I’m sorry for any inconvenience this might cause – I can only hope that you will find it worth the trouble. Old posts will remain where they are so as not to mess up any existing cross-references. I hope I’ll see you soon!!!

Watery Wednesday: Freezing River


Winter came early this year, with lasting cold weather. It’s hard on the birds:
Much of the river is already getting covered by ice.






Visit Watery Wednesday for more watery pictures.

Winter Wonderland





DSCN0537-1   DSCN0552-1

Going into town today with the purpose of shopping groceries, I found myself enchanted and “sidetracked” into the snowy landscape of the town park… All the snowy trees and lampposts and statues rather reminded me of Narnia!

Thankful Friday

Friday My Town Shoot Out – Thankful

The theme for December 3rd is, in general, what are people most thankful for in your town?

This can be a variety of meanings to everyone. This could be a person, an event, a building, what a group of people are doing in the town, gifts to the town,  etc.  Or personally, what are you most thankful for in your town.

Definitions of Thankful ........

a positive emotion or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received or will receive

feeling or expressing gratitude; appreciative


There are a lot of things in my town to be thankful for. For me, I think it is a combination of a lot of different things for which I am most thankful. So for this post, I made some collages. (For the location of the town, see map at the bottom of the post.)

When we’re not busy complaining about them, we’re thankful we have a hospital
(also including a hospital museum, and quite a few pieces of contemporary art);
and a choice of means of public transport: railway and busses and roads.
We’re also only about an hour away from an airport, and the coast,
and the second largest city in the country (Gothenburg).

We’re thankful that the town is surrounded by beautiful nature and places of historical interest.

Bird Snack Bar In The Park


DSCN0432-1  DSCN0434-1

The yellow bird is a Great Tit. The other one I’m not sure of… Possibly a Willow-Tit?



PS. We’ve been having broadband problems here lately.
Internet contact has been on and off irregularly for several days in a row now.
Not only  does it affect my own posting, but also how much
I’m able to catch up with my blogging friends!

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
