Anemone nemorosa, hvitveis

What others don’t see

I live just a short walk from a patch of woods, and I love to go there now and then to photograph the more intimate kind of landscapes and all the small stuff like flowers, moss, funghi and so on. A week ago I had my first walk there this spring. The wood anemones were…Read more What others don’t see

Sunset Boat

Just after sunset, late April. The lake is like a mirror, the air completely still. An old wooden boat is moored by the tiny beach. It is afloat but looking abandoned and disused. Nobody has bothered to empty it after the last rainfall. Patiently it waits for somebody to row it again. This image is…Read more Sunset Boat

Grosnez Point, Jersey

Imagine an open moorland with not a tree in sight. The summer sun is shining from a bright blue sky and the ground is bursting with yellow, purple and green. To the North and West the ocean stretches towards the horizon which is broken by a few islands in the distant haze. On the clifftop,…Read more Grosnez Point, Jersey

Durrell Wildlife Park, Jersey

In the Northeastern corner of Jersey lies a world of it's own, filled with exotic animals that you would never expect to come across in this part of the world. Many of them you would be extremely lucky to encounter in any part of the world, as numbers are declining. The park is run by…Read more Durrell Wildlife Park, Jersey

Portelet Bay, Jersey

On the south coast of Jersey lies a small bay with an interesting story, the story of Janvrin's Tomb, which is not a tomb after all. If you take out from St Helier towards the west about 8 km and follow signs towards Portelet bay you end up in a parking lot near a pub called Portelet…Read more Portelet Bay, Jersey

Photo location: La Corbière Lighthouse

I must admit I have a certain fascination for lighthouses. I haven't photographed many, but whenever I see one, I get a feeling of safety. Their function is to guide the seafarers and to warn about dangerous coastlines, leading the way to safe ports. I have a childhood memory about lighthouses. There was one quite…Read more Photo location: La Corbière Lighthouse

Prague Day for Night

When we were i Prague recently I took this rather boring, quite "touristy" shot of the rooftops from a nice spot near the castle. I didn't think much of it at first, but at least I didn't delete it from my camera. When I got it into my computer I found that it might have…Read more Prague Day for Night

Daffodils and white balance revisited

After sharing yesterday's post I got a comment on facebook about the relationship between white balance and RAW vs JPG. The person in question meant that I was wrong, and that the whole reason my image lacked colour was because I shot RAW. Today I'm going to prove that I am right. My opponent is not…Read more Daffodils and white balance revisited

A daffodil «macro» and the importance of white balace

A couple of weeks ago I photographed some mini daffodils that we keep in pots outside our house. It had been raining, so there were some nice drops of water on the flowers, giving some extra life to the images. I tried out a technique that I haven't tried so much, a sort of "poor…Read more A daffodil «macro» and the importance of white balace

My approach at the Ansel Adams style

As any landscape photographer, I am a big fan of the legendary American photographer Ansel Adams. I have also for a long time followed the French photographer Serge Ramelli, who lately has had a series of videos on his YouTube channel about how to take landscape photographs in the style of Ansel Adams. This inspired…Read more My approach at the Ansel Adams style
