A night in the mountains. Part 2/2, Sunrise

If you haven't read Part 1, please go ahead and do so here. When I packed up and left the location of my sunset shoot, I had this idea that I might get the chance to do some star photography during the darkest hours of the night. But as the night progressed and I was…Les mer A night in the mountains. Part 2/2, Sunrise

A summer night in the mountains. Part 1/2, Sunset

This summer I had a few days to my self at our cabin in Valdres, Norway. One day I decided to drive to Valdresflya, which is a mountain area just outside Jotunheimen National Park. I wanted to spend the night there, so I could get both the sunset and the following sunrise. I also wanted…Les mer A summer night in the mountains. Part 1/2, Sunset

Darktable preferences, part 2

In part 1 of the preferences videos I went through the GUI options tab of the preferences dialog in darktable. If you haven’t watched it, I recommend you take a look here.

New Darktable video

After a few weeks of nothing, I have finally made a new Darktable video. This time all about adjusting the tonal values of an image. This is part one of two covering this topic.

Timber Floater's Cabins

An evening at the Timber Booms

On the evening of one of the immensely hot days we have had here in Norway lately, I took a trip to Fetsund and the timber booms museum there. I have been there once before, a few years ago. There were some nice clouds in the sky so I had hopes for a few good…Les mer An evening at the Timber Booms

The Sound of Silence

Our hectic lives are filled with so much sound. Noise of all kinds, from traffic, from planes passing low overhead, the neighbour's lawn mower. People talking, be it work mates, family or friends. Overly enthusiastic kids on the bus or that businessman who just has to let everyone listen to his very important phone call…Les mer The Sound of Silence

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 […]

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
