Tyrol Lightning

I had been out photographing the whole day, and just as I called it quits and returned back to the hotel. It started rumbling in the distance, I wasn’t quite sure on where the thunderstorm was and I soon gave up trying to find a good spot to photograph it, and returned to my hotel.
But as it turned out, the best view of the thunderstorm was from the balcony on the hotel I was staying in, which of course was totally awesome.

First I made a HDR photo, for the foreground of the town and the church tower, the clouds and the mountains. Then I made some long exposures i order to capture the lightning.

In post i started out by making the HDR, like I normally do. This one is made in HDREfex Pro 2 from Nik.
Then I masked in the lighting from two of the long exposures, containing the two best caught lighting strikes.

“Far’s Kirke” is Danish and means Dad’s Church, because My dad was baptized in this church when he was very very young.

This is one of My many favorite places on The Faroe Islands. but if I had to choose a favorite, you know if someone had a gun to My head and I had to choose one or die!, it would properly be this spot.

Today’s My brother’s birthday, he’s also a photographer – you can find his site here Photographer Dan Nielsen –   earlier this year we went on a trip to Iceland together, to do some serious photography.
It was our first trip together for ten years or so, and I must admit I was a bit nervous on how it would turn out. but it was all for no reason, I had a great time both company and photography wise, and I hope you feel the same bro.

Thanks for some great company and happy b-day, brother.
