Smell of peat in Oslo

It is Easter time. I am sitting at home in Oslo, working on a book. It is light rain outside. So what do I do to cheer me up? I lit a piece of peat in my Scottish house in the window sill, and a wonderful smell is soon surrounding me.
And reminding me of all my visits to the Scottish islands!peat smoke

Photograph from 1976

In 1976 I got accreditation for the volleyball competition during the Olympic Games in Montreal.  I have been looking through my images from then, and put some of them out on the internet. Here is a picture from the match between Korea and Poland. Poland won the gold medal in the mens competition.kor-pol214-pater

Oslo, January 2017

Oslo today. A dull day with Scottish rain. No snow. No snow yet in this winter country! They tell us we shall have some snow tomorrow. That will be good for the children who want to be outdoor skiing and playing.
I took this picture in the Royal Garden when passing through on my way down town. I intended to take some pictures of the new Munch Museum that is being built. But my bad legs would not carry me all the way there. However, the weather was not very good for photography anyway…

Colours in Orkney

This past summer I visited Orkney again, and could once more admire the wonderful colours of Scotland. Here are two images from the Ring of Brodgar.
