Yaay...the sun almost shined on me
It was cold today. -13,5C
But I just had to get a picture of the landscape today.
Tomorrow the sun will shine on this location after 2 months of hibernation.

Kvalvika at sunset
Had a quick tour out after dinner. A bit chilly at only +7C but it was still nice.
Used the Lee 0.9HE graduated filter.
Stylization in OnOne Perfect effects 4
Final adjustment in Lightroom 5.
Not much editing have been done here just a little to get the stones to stand out and made them a bit brighter

A perfect weekend with temperatures in the mid 20C's
I managed to shoots some hundreds images until the batteries ran out...
I had to test out my new toy, the Stage Zero, dolly from Dynamic Perception
This is the 4ft rail but I wish I'd taken the 6ft with me.
This was an trail and error hike. So I am happy with the outcome. Especially the last sequence where the dolly is tilted.
Feel free to share if you like this 1st dolly attempt
Stay tuned, more to come in the future

Introduction
Living at Eidkjosen. 15 km outside the city of Tromsø on the island of Kvaløya
Married with kids.

Samyang 14mm f/2.8

Lee filters (ND,GND and big stopper)

Mac and iPhone user. I like the user-friendliness and the product quality.
I don't care about PC vs Mac, iOS vs Droid or Nikon vs Canon
As long as I am happy I don't care.

Canon user since 1987 when the first EOS came out.
I like Canon so why switch? 

Lee filters are amazing.
If you ever consider using  square filters, get the Lee foundation kit. Don't bother going via Cokin as I with many have done.
Nothing beats the Lee quality

Tripods: 
Just get the Gitzo.....if you can afford it
I am using Benro carbon fibre.

Heads:
Acratech ballheads are just amazing
