The Island in the Sea


The Three Witches …


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
