Project Risholmen

De som har fulgt meg en stund vil huske at jeg for ca ett år siden hadde planer om å besøke ‘Risholmen’ i Østfold for å fotografere et arboret opprettet av Heddy Astrup, men – dessverre tullet jeg meg litt bort og fant aldri denne holmen. Derimot fant jeg et idyllisk sted ved navn Engelsviken som selvsagt ble avfotografert. Og selv om jeg meget godt vet at dere har store vanskeligheter med å åpne en link, så kan de som gjerne vil se litt mer fra dette idylliske stedet finne hele 17  ‘full-screen’-bilder her!
Those of you having followed me for some time, may remember that I – about a year ago –
planned to visit an arboret instituted by Heddy Astrup, but unfortunately I didn’t have my mapping all right, and I did never find that island! However, I ended up in a beautiful and idyllic little place named ‘Engelsviken’, and of course, I did make a photo report from this place. And – in spite of knowing that most of you seem to have a really hard time opening a simple link 🙂 I give those of you that want  to see this place from the inside a new chance:
You may see 17 ‘full screen-pictures from ‘Engelsviken’ here!

Men – fastboende i Engelsviken oppdaget jo dette, og en hyggelig herre tok kontakt med meg og tilbød seg å befordre meg ut til ‘den riktige Risholmen’! Et tilbud jeg med glede aksepterte, og – her forlater vi Engelsviken på en ettermiddag med lettbris og sol fra en skyfri himmel!

But – the locals of Engelsviken had , of course, discovered my failure and I was contacted by a vcery pleasant boatowner from Engelsviken who offered to transport me to the correct island, and offer I was very happy to acceept, and  – here we are leaving the harbour of ‘Engelsviken’ – ‘Risholmen’ bound!
Bak moloen ligger Engelsviken marina. Foran oss ligger en kort båttur på 15-20 minutter
i nydelig sommervær!

Behind the molo lies the Engelsviken Marina and in front a short boat trip of 15-20 minutes in a beautiful sunny weather!Det er fantastisk ettermiddag som de lokale vet å benytte!
It’s a fantastic afternoon that the locals really know how to use . . .
Vi nærmer oss ‘Risholmen’, men – grunnet et stort antall bilder som må etterbehandles, så deler jeg dette opp litt. Det er bare å følge med og så kommer antagelig de første bildene fra selve Risholmen og arboretet frem mot helgen!

We are approaching the island named ‘Risholmen’, but – due to the fact of a rather large amount of pictures that will need processing, I’ll have to split this up a bit. Just stay tuned
and the first batch (may be all) will be published towards the week-end –

(Compliments of SRB)
Please return me to  INDEX  for a new picture/destination.

      You just wait till the week-end (but don’t flap those wings of yours!)
      Have you ever mcontremplated that bumblebees can’t fly (according to sience), but haw may angles? 🙂

      • 🙂 Just saw your reply It didn’t come into my notifications, in fact I am not getting some replies of my comments on certain blogs since the WP team did upgrades to the new GDPR rules,, ;-( 🙂 ❤

        • Seenorway says:

          I just answered you! It seems that the problems regarding GDPR works both ways?
          Perhaps it mwill evolve into a death blow to blogging? I was, however, assured that it wouldn’t affect me or my blog at all, and if so – I guess you should be OK as well?

          • Hi Svein. Well I got this reply… 🙂 But it is frustrating when people take the trouble to reply to comments then we can not see them, the only reason I know some have answered is that their likes register in the notifications column. Good to know alls well your end too..
            OH and by the way I had several of those suspicious email accounts follow my garden blog.. My emails said they had followed, yet when I looked on my site they were not there.. Go figure??

            • Seenorway says:

              I can explain that: I have long since reported these guys to the people at WP and – they are very attentive to this, thus they are trying to delete their entries throughout the WP once they arrive. But – the e-mail alert is not stopped as it poses no threath to anyone.
              Just delete it!
              However, you can never be sure that they have got them all. Thus, it would be advisable to check through your e-mail followers on a regular basis and delete all that looks like these?! Furthermore I’ve published a post:
              where you may find the ones that have had the misfortune to register at my site 🙂
              and this post will be upgraded on a regular basis. It will also include addresses that has been reported to me from others, thus – over time I hope my list will be comprehensive and useful to new bloggers beeing hit by these ‘spammers’.?!
              As you can see, I’ recommended ‘reblogging’ as this will spread the information faster and to way more people!

            • Yes just had a look at your extending list Svein and mine similar looking making no sense.. just random letters it seemed..
              Many thanks again .. 🙂

    Beautiful photos, Svein. Look forward to the next batch of Risholmen. 💐 Christine

    • Seenorway says:

      Thanks, Christine. I can enlighten you with the information that I have finished processing all pictures, however, I’m not at all sure that I dare publish all hundred! 🙂
      You might get kind of bored with flowers!

      • C.E.Robinson says:

        Oh, my! A hundred photos! Really, who doesn’t like flowers! Give it a try or select your favorite ones.

        • Seenorway says:

          You know, Christine, when you have travelled 75 miles to get there with the purpose of shooting the mature on that particular island and thereafter return the same way. it’s that one chance! Then one does the most out such opportunity, so yes – I’ll spare you the volume and will try to make a selection you’ll all like!
