Stairway to heaven?

55mm, 1/550, f/5.6, ISO 200. Shot on a X-M1 and the XF 18-55mm

Hello !

I guess this shot qualifies for the (almost) "in my backyard" category :) I found this blue, shiny, mobile ladder at a harbour nearby my place. It's about three meters high, it has wheels and I have absolutely no clue what it is used for. But it offered an interesting perspective to an otherwise grey and dull sky. I like the interplay of both symmetric and asymmetric lines in this picture, so I thought it was worth sharing. 

That's it for now... see you soon.

Happy Easter

Vrångö. 18mm, 1/800, f/8, ISO 400. Shot with a X-M1 and the XF 18-55mm

Hello !

This Easter weekend we we took a ferry from Saltholmen (near Gothenburg) and reached the souther-most island of the Archipelago, Vrångö. The island offers several easy hiking trails and glorious sea views. I snapped this one without thinking too much. Although the light was quite harsh, the photo came out quite nice. And some tweaking of the colors also helped ;)

That''s it for now... eat more chocolate and come back soon.

Pictures of nature (final day 7)

March 23, 2016

Stone turtle. 50mm, 1 sec, f/16, ISO 100. Shot with a D750 on a tripod and the 50mm f/1.4G

Hello !

This is the end of my Facebook challenge, which involved posting 7 pictures about nature, once per day. As they say, let's hope we finish with a bang :)

This picture has been taken during a glorious sunset in a location that is only a few meters away from my place. It's a popular swimming place in summer and I think that the coolest thing in the picture is the turtle-shaped rock on the left. I didn't notice the resemblance until I came back home and I looked at the picture on my laptop. As a photographer, I should really be more observant :P

All right, after a busy week of posts on the blog, I'll take a short break for Easter and I'll come back next week with more pictures (hopefully!)

That's it for now... take care and enjoy some Easter eggs.

Pictures of nature (day 6)

March 22, 2016

Belgian coast in May. 24mm, 1/320, f/16, ISO 100. Shot with a 6D and the EF 24mm f/2.8 IS

Hello !

Today, it feels silly to post pictures of nature in reaction to a Facebook challenge. What happened this morning in Brussels  makes me very sad. I lived in Belgium for 9 years and I feel touched on a personal level by this all. As a response, I'm posting a picture taken during a happy day at the Belgian coast in company of some good friends.

That's it for now... 

Pictures of nature (day 5)

March 21, 2016

Frozen sunset. 17mm, 1/90, f/11, ISO 400. Shot with a D750 and the 17-35mm f/2.8D lens.

Hello !

The Swedish weather tricked me today. Yesterday it felt like Spring here, and this morning I was scratching ice off my car's windshield. Go figure! Anyway, the episode provided inspiration for today's post... a warming sunset over a frozen landscape. I hope you like it.

That's it for now... take care.
