Coffee and Skiing

Coffee and Skiing

Yesterday was a good day for cross-country skiing. A blue sky and not very cold. I spent some time on my favorite bench at Lake Rudan,chatting with a woman who sometimes go skiing here. We talked about my 100 Strangers Project as we enjoyed the winter sun. Before heading home, I decided to get some photos of the skiers, and ended up falling on the ice with camera in hand! But luckily I didn't hurt myself. And I got a few decent shots and I showed you one of them yesterday. On todays photo you see two skiers, and in the background two buildings that once belonged to a farm. These days they are not used for farming. To the left is the theatre barn where the Ormteatern (The Snake Theatre Group) performs. And the other building belongs to the ski club, and if you recognise it, it's because I zoomed in on that building last week.

I always like it when old buildings are used for something else and not torn down. Glad you didn't hurt yourself when you fell!

This is a nice photograph of the two people in front of the two buildings. They look warm and inviting in their rusty colors. Nice post yesterday too. I need to get me one of those things to put in my mouth to breathe through.

Tjena!!
Vad kul att hitta till din fotoblogg också.

Jag blir bara så konfunderad hur man som jag kan bo här i trakten och missa alla spännande detaljer som du har lagt märke till. Komiskt, eller hur? :)

Tack för alla underbara bilder och intressant läsning.

The color is called Falu Red. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falu_red

Man ser mer om man alltid har en kamera med sig!

So it was a barn before it was converted into something of a shed for the skiers? Interesting! I think the red color of those buildings stand out very well among all that snow and forest... The day's looking quite good out there. A great chance to do a bit of skiing or photography, indeed!
