Møt familien Stær

Jeg har vært nabo med en stærfamilie i noen dager. Vi var nemlig på hytta i Kristi himmelfartshelga, og like utenfor hytteveggen har vi et stort leilighetskompleks. Dette består av to gamle, halvdøde ospetrær. Den ene ospa har mange etasjer med hull som har vært bebodd av generasjoner av fugler gjennom mange år. Denne gangen var…Les mer Møt familien Stær

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

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

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

Børter kraftverk

Av og til hender det at bilder jeg er rimelig fornøyd med går i glemmeboka. Dette bildet er et av dem. Børter Kraftverk i Enebakk ble bygd i 1914 og leverer fortsatt kortreist strøm til lokale forbrukere etter over hundre år. På utsiden ser bygningen litt sliten og nesten forlatt ut, men på innsiden summer turbinene…Les mer Børter kraftverk

Lørdagsdykk i arkivet: Wranglere, 1994

Sommeren 1994 var vi på en to ukers busstur i Midtvesten. I nærheten av Big Timber, Montana besøkte vi Arneson Ranch, hvor disse tøffingene viste oss hva de kunne med lasso og hest. Minolta SR-1 med fast 200mm Tamron objektiv.  

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
