Sunset + Rainbow = Awesomeness

0422_20150626_213625Here’s the first processed photo from my hike across the UK a week ago. I was made at the last stop on the route, Robin Hood’s Bay. Where we where rewarded with the most awesome sunset, which included a rainbow, as you can see in the photo above.

Just got back, from my hike across the UK, what at trip, it was my first really hiking trip, but is sure not gonna be the last one.
Just copying the photos on to my hard drive “as we speak” really looking forward to process the hell out of them, and get them posted.

To kill the time, till I get the UK photos process, here’s a photo I made on my trip to Yellowstone, back in 2010.

Train Tracks to Eternity

Train Tracks to Eternity

Well I said in my last post, that I would post as many photos from my UK hike as possible. But I must said, the hiking takes a lot more of my energy, then I thought it would.
I simply haven’t gotten the extra energy, to make photos and post them here. While I’m doing the hike.
So today’s photo is from an old trip I had to the US back in 2013.

Let’s Hit the Road

20130722_175901As I wrote yesterday; I’m going on a 18 days trip to England tomorrow.

My idea is to post as many photos from the trip, during the trip, as possible.
So expect to see a lot of mobile photos, here on the blog, the next couple of weeks.

WWII Airmen Memorial Cemetery

Svinø Kirke DONESvinø cemetery is the memorial grove of Allied airmen who were shot down during WW2. By virtue of its location and geographical linkage to Flyvestation Avnø. Svinø was chosen as a burial site for the downed airmen in South Sealand, Lolland, Falster and Møn.

There are buried a total of 62 pilots and other crew members from British warplanes and 46 from American warplanes. Among the buried are also pilots from Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

Every year on May 4th, there is a memorial service and ceremony for the fallen soldiers, at the graves. Even now, so many years after relatives of the fallen, are often taking part in the ceremony.

In 1998 Canadian Donald Smith died, he was the only survivor of a plane crash in West Zealand. He wanted to be buried with his fallen comrades, and May 4th, 1999, his three sons came here from Canada with his urn. which was buried a few meters from his comrades.

Here’s a before and after comparison of the photo. The first one is a comparison between the RAW photo and the HDR photo. The second one is between the HDR and the final photo.
Just to give you an idea on how much the HDR does to a photo, and then how much twerking there is on the HDR photo to get it finished.

RAW vs HDR.

HDR vs Final photo.

Panorama of a Great Place

20100627_131019I hiked up here, on my first trip to the Faroe Islands. I wasn’t – and still isn’t – in a very good shape, and the hike almost killed me.

In two days, I’m going to England, to hike across the country, 300 km in 15 days. I’m doing the hike with my friend Rod Clemen and I’m really looking forward to it, but I’m also a bit nervous about whether I can do the whole trip.

Church in a Yellow Field

Curch in yellow fieldThere is nothing that says Spring is here, then the yellow canola fields. I love it, when you can drive around the countryside and see and smell them all over.

This photo is from a trip to northern Jutland, earlier this year.

Enjoy the Merry Go-round

Swing

The Wurstelprater amusement park, aka “Prater”, stands in one corner of the Wiener Prater park and includes the Wiener Riesenrad, (The Vienna Giant Wheel) which is famous for appearing in the Orson Welles movie “The Third Man” from 1949.

I also found this old school merry go-round, on my walk around the park.
