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

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

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…Les mer My approach at the Ansel Adams style

Bridges of Bern, BW edition

I saw this video by Brendan van Son yesterday, about a photo he took in Bern, Switzerland. It reminded me of the one I took there almost two years ago. Brendan took his photo from the high bridge in the background, and it is much nicer than mine, as it is taken at sunset while…Les mer Bridges of Bern, BW edition

Foggy Winter

We've had a few weeks of really cold winter weather here in the Eastern parts of Norway lately, with temperatures roughly around -15ᴼC. This weekend the temperature rose to just a few degrees below zero, brought by some mild and humid air from the south. This also brought fog, and I saw a chance to…Les mer Foggy Winter

Happy new year!

The new year is a few days old as I post this, and I feel it is quite descriptive of how my blogging has been the last year. I can only hope that in 2016 I will be better at posting consistently and more on time. Today's photo is a somewhat rare photo from me,…Les mer Happy new year!

Capturing the lunar eclipse

I decided to write this post in English, just to see what happens. Maybe more people will read it, maybe less. And maybe I'll write more in English in the future. I don't know, it'll kind of be up to the statistics to decide. And now to the point. Some time ago we had this…Les mer Capturing the lunar eclipse
