    -18 degrees Celsius equals just a tad below 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix an inspired amateur photographer with such cold weather and you might see results like these:

    The sun had the chance to warm things up for a while, and the result were these icicles hanging from every roof in the whole city. A huge threat for pedestrians walking 20 meters below.

    It's amazing that today has the coldest temperature of this winter season, and it's in early March.

    I hope you enjoyed this little photographic story from Norway.

    Looks nice there in Norway. Down here in Denmark it is just gloomy.

    That said I am going to be up there skiing tomorrow so I will get to enjoy it.

    I'm sure that will be a good experience. There's plenty of snow in all of Norway now, and the weather is just perfect. Although cold. Where exactly will you go skiing?

    I am going to Norefjell near Oslo. It is a package deal through the ferry company that was just to good to pass up.

    One question, what makes the tracks in the third picture?

    I like the very first "snow" pic. :) I miss snow. Wish I was in the snow right now!

    Those tracks are made by some "ski preparation machines". It's tracks you use to go cross country skiing!

    You add -7 with -7, and add -4 = -18. Logical? The widget's forecasts for Norway isn't really accurate, but the measurements in real time is. So -18 is correct.

    Right now it's actually -6, and that's a 12 degrees increase in only 8 hours. Tonight it'll probably fall below -15 again.

    And you thought your F1.4 was fast!

    Note to all other excited photographers: he didn't mean 0 F, as an aperture size!

    You finally got my little pun :)

    F0 is logically impossible though. And most of my shots are done with a 3.5-5.6 Sigma 28-200mm, btw. Don't know if I can recommend the lens since it's very soft and lacks good contrast, but it's cheap and light...
