The Island in the Sea

A year ago …

More than a year has gone without a single post here …

I am struggling with getting all my workflows (read ducks) in a row …

Should I keep on posting them in various specific blogs, or just consolidate the pictures in G+

Not sure what is the best way forward, but rest assured the Stockholm Archipelago is extremely beautiful this time of the year and I keep on enjoying it day in day out …

We took a walk today in the frozen landscape (minus 6) and enjoyed the warm sun and frozen crisp snow … maybe time to get a photo walk organized in the coming weeks …

Let me know if you would be interested to join ?

My First HDR …

I have been planning a long time to look into HDR shooting, and only last week I got inspired by a very nice shot of a swane by @imrogb and he pointed me in the good direction of this very nifty tutorial.

So, here I was in Sälen, practizing my HDR shooting skills on the snowy hills of the Swedish Fjällen.

Offcourse these pictures are a little over the top, and the beauty is going to be to tone down the HDR effect, so one does not recognize it as HDR as such, and it just enriches the picture, but for now, like a kid in the candy store, playing with his first Sony, all registers are open …

The full experiment at Flick’r is here (including the Spa Lady with the hairy back)

Golf Course ?

Whipped Cream ?

Day I in Sälen was like a Narnia snow experience.

Every single tree was packed in whipped cream and drawned in a bed of sun.

Amazingly beautiful scenery …

The wind is blowing …

Some pictures from our trip to Sälen will make their way to the site, un-edited, as I had to go back to good old picasa as lightroom is not travelling along with us, and it kind of breaks my morning workflow routines ;-P
