Bleik Island
This fantastic island of Bleik is really a beauty and scenic view. Everybody that visits the island of Andoya have to get this on picture.

I just got my new lens: Carl Zeiss, Biogon T 2,8/21mm ZM* Used a cheap adapter from Ebay and it works great. You just got to love the Sony A7R and all the possibilities you have on lens collections :)

The view from Kvalvika
The aurora season is leaping towards the end. You can still see the remaining light from the sunset over 4 hours ago.

Snow
This past week it have been snowing every day. I am feeling that it's enough now. It is suppose to clear up tonight. But in the meantime it keeps coming down even more snow. We have gotten close to 1m this week.

Mørketid
Even though that we don't see the sun for another month it doesn't mean that we don't see any light at all. The colors can be amazing during the short hours of light. The colors and light we also have after it gets dark in the aurora borealis that we always can see here in Tromsø.
Have a great holiday and take a lots of pictures

It was a cold night. But you forget it when the aurora is active.

Sunset in February
The wind was blowing and it went through my bones. So I was a little too quick to drive back home. Since the sky turned totally pink 10 minutes afterward.

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
Bragging rights
