Photo – Nature – Everyday Life


Being an amateur photographer I take a lot of photos which has no quality what so ever, so sometimes it is necessary to tidy up in the Lightroom archive. There is no need to save photographs which cannot be used for anything and raw files do take a lot of storage. Going thorough all these photos (well I just finished march 2017) I did find some photos that actually was quite OK. Todays theme are droplets, seems to be a favorite of mine together with mushrooms and leaves.

Droplet on moss (winter 2017), can you see the apartment building inside the droplet?

Droplet on leaf (early spring 2017).

For 2018 I probably should try not to photograph so many droplets….or…. We´ll see 😉

Have a lovely week!


Juniper and pine

During winter spruce, juniper and pine are still green and can be nice targets for some macro photography.

The photos are from two different days this January. Juniper with droplet are from new years day, a rather warm winters day were the snow was about to melt. The frosty pine needle was captured this week were the temperature was about -3 Celsius and the sun was rising.

Color hunting

Winter in Norway can be somewhat colorless because the days are quite short (the sun is up just a few hours) and the weather can be quite grey. The snow are covering up potential targets for a macro photographer. But sometimes if you take your time to observe your surroundings you can find something unexpected.

Happy New Photo Year

Todays photos is also a part of the photo series I took for the “Braking the rules” challenge (like the three photos in yesterdays post; “Trees from below”). In the two images below the object in focus is centered in the frame. Which sometimes works out quite well in my opinion but it depends of the rest of the composition of course. But I’m not an expert on the golden rules for photography and that’s why I found it difficult to break them ;-). Anyway, performing these challenges are truly a good opportunity to see things differently and learn some new approaches.

I wish you all a happy 2018!

Trees from below

Today I played around in the forest taking pictures of trees from below. Lying on my back I was happy there was nobody around. the pictures are for a challenge: “Braking the rules” . I found it quite difficult because I am a lazy photographer which couldn’t care less about photographic rules 😉

I wish all of you a happy new year with a photo I have called “Forest fireworks”:

I did a few more tree photos too:

Shape of a leaf

I love walking in the forest in winter especially when there is just a little bit of snow covering the ground. The last week it has been impossible to get around on the paths were I usually walks because it has been quite icy. But yesterday there was a snow fall and a change in temperature so today I finally was able to take a little walk. On these walks it is always interesting things to observe or photograph in the surroundings. I always get so fascinated by how the leaves curl up in different shapes when they are drying out in the autumn. Some of the leaves still are hanging on to the the branch even though it is winter and they should have fallen to the ground. They are quite beautiful I think.

Beautiful shapes, I think.

Photo stroll – benches

Yesterday we visited friends in Fredrikstad. We went to the old town to look at the christmas market and just enjoy the environment. I just fell for some benches by the river. This is a part of my idea of learn to do something different than macro photography 😉

Hope you enjoy!

Winter shots (from the archive).

The past weeks I have been going through all my photos in the Lightroom archive. It was time to clean up and remove some of the photos. Some of the photos got a new edition and I edited some of them for the first time. As time goes by you see new possibilities in some of the photos. So todays post are some winter shots from last winter (January 2017).
