At 06.50 A.M.

Etter årets Olymiske Vinterleker på den andre siden av kloden, har den vanlige døgnrytmen fått seg en alvorlig knekk og jeg kan plutselig se at klokken har blitt 03 på natten og uten at jeg har merket synlig trang til å komme meg i seng. Andre ganger kan jeg våkne ved halv femtiden og innbille meg at det må være på tide å stå opp.
Som regel seirer fornuften og jeg bare går og legger meg igjen, men andre ganger har jeg blitt litt for våken.
Nå er ikke en morgen kl 06.50 et helt uvanlig tidspunkt å starte dagen på for en yrkesaktiv med huset fullt av barn, men – for en relativt gammel pensjonist så er det uvanlig tidlig.
Likevel har jeg kameraet liggende, for det hender faktisk at jeg våkner på et tidspunkt som jeg ikke ville ha vært foruten – som f.eks. idag!
De gode nyhetene er at våren kommer nærmere!  Hvis dere ser nøye på mine bilder fra
‘January Morning I & II’, så vil dere se at punktet for soloppgang har flyttet seg nesten
10 grader på horisontlinjen! Det kan ikke reverseres! Våren kommer !!!

After this year’s Olympic Winter Games taking place on the other side of ‘Mother Earth’, my usual living rythm has gone completely awry! At some days I may look at my watch and find it’s 03.00 A.M. still having no urge to go to bed. Or I may wake up at 04.30 A.M. feeling it must be time to get out of bed when it’s obviously not!
Usually my wits convinces me to retreat to my bed, but at other times I have woken up too much.
Of course, 06.50 A.M. isn’t so unusual if you have a job and a family to take care of, but for a relatively old retired man like me, it’s way too early! 🙂
Anyway, – I always have my camera lying at the ready because at some times I may wake up experiencing moments that I wouldn’t have liked to miss. Like this morning at 06.50 !
The good news is that the spring seems to draw closer! If you take a closer look at the pictures in my ‘January Morning I & II’,  you’ll notice that the point for sun-up has moved nearly 10 degrees to the left? The spring is definitely coming closer – and it can’t be reversed! It’s really coming . . .

    We also watched Olympic Winter Games. Our favorite sport was biathlon and 50 km skiing!

      And passed through several long nights without much sleep?! 🙂
      I won’t be watching such events from across the world a next time. Besides there will probably be no more snow in another 15-20 years, allthough it doesn’t look like that today.
      In our yard alone the snow piles stand 10 feet high at the moment!

    Norway did excellent in the winter Olympics with 39 total medals. I love their hard-working attitude and dedication.

    My area is showing signs of spring with budding trees and warmer temps but winter is still trying to linger with cold and windy temps at night. Not too much longer before spring will be here.:)

    Beautiful shot, Svein, and worth catching in the early morn.

    • Seenorway says:

      Thank you, Eugenia –
      Yes, we did rather well considering our population and the Swedes weren’t all that happy
      beeing twice that many! 🙂 But the competition with Sweden has been going on for decades . . .
      I think you must be 2-3 weeks ahead of me with motives from the spring, but I know I’ll be getting there – adventually! So far we have still 3-8 feet of snow, depending where in the country we are talking about.

        Mother Nature at her finest or at her worst!?:)

          That depends entirely whnat you are looking for.
          In my youth the winters were fabulous and my whole world became a ‘playground’, but as the yhears piled up my temerature tolerance dropped, my balance dropped – along with most else 🙂 and now slippery footwalks pose a problem – not to say ‘risk’ for breaking something if I go down (which is nearly unavoidable). So I’m looking forward to a decent summer and a lot of photography given that my health prevails! One week at a time! 🙂

  4. I enjoyed watching the Winter Olympics too, and we did better this year too, with 5 medals,
    Lovely Sunrise, worth getting out of bed for Svein. 🙂 Take care my friend 😀

  5. Winter Olympics wee best view as highlights later in the day!!. You are right…. the days are getting longer, starting a little earlier and lasting longer as each day goes by. The arc of the sun is also extending northwards, I notice this particularly in my study, one window faces due east. The sun has now moved up sufficiently to catch the window for a short while. Soon it will flood in till next November 🙂

    • Seenorway says:

      I remember visiting the ‘Seattle World Exhibition’ back in 1963 where they had built an ‘experimental home’ rotating on a solid base following the sun-up through the year.
      You could for instance choose to always have your breakfast in a sunny kitchen throughout the year! 🙂

    Yes it is … probably. Here in Italy we have a lot of snow. Weather changing?
