“Winterscapes”

EAC_7828-Edit

 

As much as I love a day on the beach, I must admit that few things can compare to a photo-session in a freezing cold, snow-clad landscape. I’m fortunate enough to live in Norway so winter is all around me this time of year. Days are short, but when the skies are clear, the light is beautiful. This image was captured in late december near Mayavatn in central Norway. I was driving home from a visit to friends and family up north as I passed this scene. I stopped the car, parked and ran out in the snowy fields, having snow up to my waist. The thermometer showed -24 deg celsius and I was dressed for driving in a warm comfortable car, not fieldwork. Suffice to say, I got cold and wet, but I think it was worth it. Hope you like my image, have a super Wednesday!

High season!

Autumn is the landscapephotographers high season! The wonderful, vibrant foliage, the low, soft morning and evening light, and the mist covering the lowlands at this time of year, all add elements that we love in our landscapes.

I am currently out hunting for new images, but had a short stop-over at home and wanted to post this image from last autumn. Have a splendid season! I will be back in a couple of weeks. Next blog-post will be about equipment, so stay tuned!
