Recommend a walk up Calton Hill for everyone either visiting or staying in Edinburgh! Forget about Arthur’s seat, this is where the view is breathtaking! Had such a lovely day, walking around taking pictures. Hoping for more sunny days in the near future!

Turned 22 a couple of days ago. My birthday was above all expectations, I have so many amazing friends here that made sure I had a great time! Feels so good to be here in Edinburgh, studying what I’m studying and having so much fun with all my new friends. Can’t say I’d ever imagine doing anything else at this point.

Oh my, I’ve already been back for over three weeks, and today was my first day out with my camera since I got back! Not good. The concept of time is a bit hard to grasp right now, it feels like I’ve only been back for a couple of days, but at the same time it feels like I never left.

My new courses at Uni are so interesting, I’ve met a lot of amazing people, started a new and healthier life style which include exercise a couple of times a week, and  made a proper budget to stick to for this semester. Also passed my exams for the first semester, which was a huge relieve!

The weather today was so lovely that you’d have to be a fool not to take a walk outside. So i layered up and went out with my camera, exploring all the beautiful places that Edinburgh has to offer. Today’s trip went up Regent Road, and it only took a couple of hundred meters before I found a beautiful old cemetery called Old Calton Cemetery.

It might seem a bit odd for some people that you would choose to go for a lovely afternoon walk in a cemetery, but there are just so many amazing photo opportunities there! The old graves with green moss on top of them,  the details and the colors are just perfect for some nice pictures. I find the peace and quiet so relaxing, and usually imagine how peoples lives where when reading the old graves, what they did for a living, how old they were and if they had kids, wives, husbands. A cemetery reminds me more of the life that was than the actual death.

Also went up Calton Hill. Will post pictures from that later this week. Quite a busy week coming up, so it might be good to “store” some pictures! I’ll promise to keep the posts to a more frequent level than what it’s been the last three weeks!

I can’t believe this is my first shoot with this girl, considering she’s been my best friend since we were both 7 years old!

We wanted some dramatic looking winter shoots where she would look warm as the summer, and I think we nailed it pretty good.  I can promise that this will not be the last time you see her as my model! Just love the colors and everything is there photos!

Dust off that red dress, my love

A big thank you to everyone visiting my site, liking my post and commenting on my pictures, it means the world to me to see that so many people want to follow my blog and find my pictures interesting. Thank you!

These pictures were taken during my shoot with my new model, and best friend, who wanted to take pictures of me as well. So this is my first try as a model, and I must say it was a lot more terrifying than what I thought it would be. It’s hard to know what to do with yourself when there’s someone standing there with a big camera waiting for amazing poses. A new found respect for everyone I’ve ever had a photo shoot with!

Having a shoot outside, in Norway, in January, was a cold experience. You would get so cold after a while that you couldn’t really feel anything when you touched your own skin.

I’ll be posting the pictures of my new model, beautiful Christine, later on. Saving them as a treasure at this moment!

Stay tuned!

Not much to say, other than that I’m so glad to live in such a beautiful place as I do!
Pictures from a trip I had with my dad today. Such a nice day.

I also had a photo shoot yesterday, which means that I will post some pictures soon, and this time of a brand new model!
Had a great time shooting these pictures, and they turned out amazing, so there will definitely be a second shoot with this girl in the near future!

Nothing charges my batteries more than a walk in the snow at such a lovely day as today.

I have so much to look forward to before the new year is here, which makes me happy.

A busy mind don’t dwell in the past, and is therefore a happy mind!

Less than a week left before my first exam, getting pretty nervous now! Every day is devoted to revising as much as possible and my head feels like a balloon on the verge of bursting. Ever had that feeling of reading but not really…absorbing what you read? That’s my everyday life right there…

Can’t wait to get home to Norway! I’ve been told there’s plenty of snow compared to Edinburgh’s weather that reminds me more of early spring than anything else.  Can’t wait to see my friends and family don’t think I’ve ever missed people as much as I have this semester. 11 days to go!

Winter is coming

Some pictures of Sunniva taken the day before new years eve in ’10.
A day when the temperatures were freezing, but the light was just perfect.

It is finally December and frost on the ground in the morning. I love it!

Can’t wait for Christmas!

Got a Christmas gift calendar in the mail yesterday from my parents back in Norway! I always feel like a little girl again when Christmas is around the corner and I get my calendar, don’t think I’ll ever grow too old for this!

|

The exams are coming up; I’m stressed out and find myself struggling to balance my time right. Can’t wait to go back home for Christmas and see my friends and family again! Just three weeks now, but also three exams before that as well…

Went and bought myself a miniature Christmas tree for my room, just to get a hint of that Christmas spirit! Such a cute little tree, it makes me happy just to look at it. It is finally getting colder here, even though the nature still looks a lot like autumn would look in Norway. Would be awesome with a bit of snow, crossing my fingers*.
