Meet the Starling family

I have had a starling family as neighbours for a few days. We had a long weekend in our cabin, and just beside the cabin there is a large apartment complex. This consists of two old, half dead aspen trees. One of them has a lot of storeys with holes that have been occupied by generations of birds over many years. This time […]

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…Les mer 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…Les mer 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,…Les mer 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…Les mer 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…Les mer 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…Les mer 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…Les mer 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…Les mer 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…Les mer A daffodil «macro» and the importance of white balace
