Mongolia was special, in a very good way, especially the landscape was incredible, and I only saw a very small part of it. Can’t wait to get back there again some day.
Once again I found myself walking around the northwestern beaches of Jutland, looking for some good compositions.
Normally I make them big and wide, but this time I got in close, using my Samyang fisheye lens, which I really love fooling around with.
There is something fascinating about deserts. I can’t quiet put my finger on it. Maybe it’s because you can easily die out there, or maybe it’s something as simple as I don’t have deserts where I live, and that makes them fascinating, just like it is with mountains.
But you get the chance to see mountains more often then deserts, and that makes the fascination of mountains fade a bit.
I don’t know, all I know is that I find deserts awesome. And that it was the main reason for me to go to UAE, to get out in a “real” desert.
One of the things Iceland is famous for.
A photo of the rising sun over Grand Canyon. Made the very first time I was there, way back in 2007. But an experience I’ll never forget, I arrived during the night, and just went to sleep, to be fresh and ready at sun up. It was so awesome, standing there not know what the canyon looked like – only see it through other photo – and then getting it reviled gradually while the sun was getting up.
I added the grain and vintage look in post.
I sometimes fool around with photos in post, like this one, which I didn’t think too much off when I first started. It was a stitch made from 3 photos, and I kind of liked the reflection in the lake.
But after a few hours in Photoshop / Lightroom I ended up with what you see here, I know it’s not a master piece, but I still like the end result.
My point with this, is that sometimes you just need to try out different things and to get the look you want / like. The skill is to know when to quiet fooling around with a photo, and just realize that is no good, I have a lot of those too.
But isn’t that just a wast of time? I don’t think so. You get better at post processing in the process, and you might discover some new techniques a long the way.
On my last trip to the US, I spend two days in and around Crater Lake in Oregon. I said it before but I’ll say it again, it’s a wonderland for any landscape photographer and/or hiking enthusiast.
Remember you can always find the spot I made a photo at, by clicking on the geotag link below.
This is one of my very first photos from The Faroe Islands, I made it out of the car window, will driving from the airport to the place I was staying. On my very first trip up there in 2010.
Gorkhi Terelj National Park is a totally awesome spot for any landscape photographer, and it’s not more the a couple of hours away from Ulaan Baator. I only had half a day there – and the weather wasn’t on my side – when I visited Mongolia last year, and that is far from enough.
Here’s a photo from a trip to Kullen, Sweden, I made with my friend Henrik Wessmann earlier this year. Henrik asked me if I wanted to join him for a sunrise trip, and I’m not the one to say no to a little photo outing in good company.
It was my very first visit, but definitely not my last, and very cool place and not more the a 1½ hour drive from Copenhagen.
Thanks for taking me and for being a good sport, Henrik.
I spend a few days at Terkhiin Tsagaan Lake (aka The White Lake) in Mongolia. On the first evening the wind died down, and that gave me this incredible view of the lake. unfortunately it didn’t last long enough, for me to catch the sunset at the same conditions.
