I went fishing…

A week ago I went fishing with friends in Norway. Not a rod in sight. I am usually not going around with a camera just in case, but this was different.

Been there, done that

But, every year there are different artists and a new look, so today is not as before. Go there for an almost once in a lifetime experience. I will be back with my images from my visit soon. Article from The Guardian. 😀  Pelle

Founded in 1989, the Icehotel in Swedish Lapland is built from the snow up each year, using ice from the local river. The rooms are designed by international artists and this year feature spacemen and an ice queen

Top image:  The hotel has 35 suites, featuring ice carvings designed by 36 different artists from 17 countries. Queen of the North (created by Emilie Steele and Sebastian Dell’Uva) is one of the more intense rooms, with the bed surrounded by the head and hands of an icy goddess.

 

I went fishing

Something that I don´t often do. However, with my dear friend Knut, his brother Asle and their wonderful friends in Norway it all went well. We caught lots of fish. Fishing is very relaxing. Also taking care of the net after is contemplative. We had so much of everything and nothing to talk about. First time I managed to photograph fishing as well.

Thanks Knut for letting me borrow your camera!

The way I do it

If I shoot 24×36, 6×6, 4×5″ or any other format, 9 times out of 10 I compose and fill the full frame. Just a way I started many years ago and just a way I still work.

From yesterdays races at Bro Park. Enjoy!

Massive landscapes, or just a trick…

More shots from above, but this time not so high up. The drones has gotten us into thinking in new patterns. The article from Washington Post. 😊  Pelle

Photographer Joseph Philipson saw more than just cuts in the sand on the shores of Long Beach, Calif. He saw the “code that constructs our visual reality,” or the mathematical phenomenon of fractals, mathematical sets that show a repeating pattern at every scale. In nature, fractals can be seen not only on coastlines but also river systems, blood vessels and crystals, to name a few. Philipson noted to In Sight that his images could be “massive landscapes, deep valleys, canyons … it’s a trick of the eye but I’m really only maybe five feet over.”

 

Finding patterns in Australian farmland

I´d like to go to Australia! Ladies and gentlemen I give you Josh Smith. 😊  Pelle

Up up and away

Here is another set of drone photography. One perhaps considered as a selfie. Nature from above is often very graphical and beautiful. Just look at these images. Hmmm, just thinking, how many are falling from the sky?

Aerial photography platform SkyPixel received 27,000 entries to its 2016 competition. Here are the winning shots plus some of The Guardians favourites. SkyPixel’s competition was open to both professional and amateur photographers and was split into three categories: Beauty, 360, and Drones in Use.
