Dolomite Sunrise

Dolomite SunriseBuy Print

The only morning I manage to get some decent sunrise light, on my visit to the Dolomites, Italy last year, was this one.
Luckily I was out and about, it took me about 2 hours to hike up to this spot, but it was well worth the effort. The view and the sunrise was fantastic, at first I was a bit boomed about being on the “wrong” side of the mountain, relative to the sunrise, but afterwards I’m kind of glad I was, I make a lot of my sunrise (and sunset) photos straight into the sun, so this was a nice break.

Here’s behind the scenes photo, for you. in the photo I’m actually making a timelapse, you can see my Camranger hanging of the tripod – it’s the white thing – There is also an analog camera laying around, I think it’s the Vilia Auto 35 from Lomo. And of course my all so trusty F-stop Guru camera backpack.

I made this one on a lovely autumn forest walk with my – always patience – girlfriend. Thanks for giving me space to do these things.

It’s made in a forest in northern Jutland.

The Cleaner #03

This guy had the most bland job I have ever seen. He was washing the garbage cans in Beijing, by hand. Don’t get me wrong, I do mean that you should wash them, but you might just use a hose and wash them clean with that.

I tiptoed all the way down to the edge of the water, I was so afraid to scare the horses away. But once I was down there they didn’t seam to mind me at all. So I was able to make several different photos.

Found this awesome looking cinema, way out east in Washington State, I only got to this city because I need gas that night and this seamed to be the only place open, And didn’t think there was anything photogenic around. But I like it when I’m in for a surprise.

While I was waiting for the train to Marrakesh, I – as I always do – killed some time by make photos. I quickly found this guy collection the trolleys, and thought that it would make a nice photo. I made quiet a few photos of him working, before I got one that I liked, but that’s the beauty of digital photography, you get the result instantly and the opportunity to make another one if you don’t like it.

You can always tell if there is something happening in DR’s concert hall, if the building is light up like in this photo – it’s the blue part of the compound – there is a concert or something alike going on in there.

And it is of course a very good time to go there and make some photos of the place.

A few months ago I bought my first Infrared camera, a Nikon Coolpix L620 point and shoot camera, just to see if I found it fun to do.

I find Infrared photography quiet interesting, and would like to do it some more. But I need a better camera, the point and shoot is cool for trying it out, but if you want to get a bit more serious you need and better camera, at least one with manual focus. But more on that in a later post or video.

I’m not good at it, but when I finally get to it, I really like being up for sunrise, there is something special about seeing the day come to life. And then of course get a lot of awesome photography light at the same time.

As you properly guessed this photo was made an early morning earlier this year.

The Guy Guarding the Bridge

20140806_055801

I was once told that every one has a job in China, I’m not sure if that is correct.
But if it is, some of this make sense. I saw some really boring jobs and jobs with no – at least at first sight – real purpose. Like this feller here, he and two other guys where “guarding” this bridge, I think it was around 200 meters long, and there was nothing happening. I really couldn’t see the purpose in that. There where nothing to guard.

A Home for Ancient Kings

I didn’t know quiet what to do with this photo, so I decided to go all in, and adding effects that I normally don’t use. I added fog to the foreground, I also added some de-focus to the background.

I added a before and after comparison,for you to see the changes.

As the title says this is a view of the city Battambang, Cambodia, at sunrise time. It was made from the roof of the hotel I was stay at.

Some Foss

Not just some foss, this is the famous Gullfoss, I can’t tell you if this is sunset or sunrise, because the sun never really sets when you are in Iceland in the summertime. But my guess is that I hadn’t really made it to the sunrise part yet, it was still to early for that, and there was still a few hours left of the sunset at this point.

If you are a Miyazaki fan like me, the Ghibli Museum in Tokyo is a must see. and when you’re there remember to get out on the roof, here you’ll find this awesome five-meter-tall robot soldier, from the movie “Laputa Castle in the Sky”

I went on an evening walk with my Fujifilm x100s, with a mission to photograph something. When I came by this laundry, unfortunately the door was locked, but I decided that I had to make at least 3 good photos, photographing only through the windows.

I personally think the result is pretty good. What do you think?
