The summer has arrived here in the south of Norway, I feel like I`m cutting grass every day 😉
While waiting for the lawnmower battery to recharge I took my fiancés camera out with the macro lens. In the backyard there is a young oak tree that is bussing with life. The wind was not to helpful but I got a couple of shots worth sharing.
My year on Instagram with the nine most liked images.
Its nice to see that my last image from 2015 actually made it to the top nine list. Much more images to come in 2016.
Happy New Year everyone.
I attended a seminar on action photography last week and was made aware of the power of Instagram. Earlier I have hesitated to join and have not seen the value in it for me. But now I see the potential in it and will post a new picture daily and showcase some of my images taken on both DSLR and iPhone. I do not use filters on my cameras or in post, I mostly only do adjustments to the curves. I believe you still can do most of the work in camera with experience and good preparation.

Two years ago me and my fiancé walked the El Camino de Santiago, we started in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port crossed the Pyrenees on the Napoleon route and walked to Santiago de Compostela. During the trip we used our Canon G12 and ended up with around 1000 pictures. So far only a few has been processed and here are a couple of panoramas taken on Alto del Perdón outside Pamplona.
After driving for two days we arrived at my in-laws house, we started out the night with a trip down to the sea and caught a couple of bird shots.
Tjeld – Eurisian Oystercatcher
Måke – Seagull
Today we did a small walk along the dock and this guy caught our attention. He was very determined that we needed to focus on him and stay away from his nest. He played hurt for a little while and got really close. So close that I had problems focusing with my 70-200mm.
Sandlo – Common Ringed Plover
All in all a good start for the vacation 😀
Taken early one morning before I left for work. Handheld at ISO 3200 200mm F2.8 and 1/15 sec shutter speed
