Mountain springtime


Oslo is a little behind Amsterdam, spring is only just appearing. I've only ever visited Norway before in the depths of winter, when it's a dark, frozen world. This fresh light city is a completely unrecognisable. Karina took me up to Frognerseteren, a famous old cafe up a mountain. Last time we visited it was covered in snow and ice and it was pitch black at 3.30pm. These photos were taken at about that time. There are a few patches of old snow still waiting to melt but the wildflowers are beginning to bloom around it.
