Little Rock on SandBuy Print

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.

Little Desert Bush

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.

My First Grand Canyon Sunrise

20070824_055656_548Buy Print

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.

A Small Lake in Yellowstone

2010.07.24_082519_stitchBuy Print

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.

Crater Lake Sunrise

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.

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.

The Lighthouse on Kullen

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.

White Lake Reflection

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.
