The norwegian horror weekend

When i find myself in times of trouble..  I take great comfort in the nature. Even God has cried all weekend, the rain has been unstoppable.  I needed to get away from the TV a little, get the terror on a safe distance for a short while. And trying to find beauty again. And this is what I have found:
Fuchsia flowering on my balcony

A rock pipit (skjærpiplerke)

A wet oyster catcher (tjeld)

A little seagull chick hiding in the wet grass

A dunlin (Myrsnipe)

A young red-necked phalarope (svømmesnipe)

A little stint (dvergsnipe)

A very wet dunlin

A young wagtail (linerle)

Not any of these pictures can make up for the terror, I know that. But it is my way of coping, staying sane. And finding beauty even after these tragic events. I also know I am lucky, having the biggest treasure of my life safe in Skien. As a mother I can try to understand the grief of the victims parents, but I do not think it is possible for anybody to fully imagine the deep sorrow and grief they are going through. My warmest condolances goes to all the victims and their relatives.

  1. Great picture of the wet Oyster Catcher! Just like we all feel nowadays ---
    What a blessing to be able to escape from horror and grief into beauty and innocence for a period! Thank you for sharing words & photos; they are equally good.
