+Jan Eirik Wold Here it's 4s, just enough to smoothen the water. The shutter speed depends on how bright the aurora is. But normally I prefer 1-2s so that I can capture curtains and spikes. To really get the movement of the aurora

Binonda church
We did a guided tour in the China town of Manila, Philippines. The worlds oldest China town, established in 1594. So a Catholic church in the middle of China town. The tour that was managed by Old Manila Walks is highly recommended. Our guide Ivan showed really great knowledge of his hometown.

Chevy pickup truck
Every year, the Amcar club here in town arranges a drag race. Everybody can participate if they think they have something to share with other. There are mostly American muscle cars. I really enjoyed taking picture before and during the race.

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.

Last days of the Midnight sun
I was driving to this location. The roads were terrible! I started to take pictures when I noticed that my phone was still in the car. When I got to the car a guy told me that I had a flat tire! No problem I thought since I had a spare in my trunk. 
When I found the jack and the bolt wrench I noticed that it was damaged from the previous owner. 
A family in another car had a toolbox. But apparently the mother in law had lent the wrench away...Arrgh... 
What to do. After midnight and people might be in bed already. This location doesn't have any coverage for the mobile phone. So I couldn't just call the AAA 
Then I noticed one guy in one of the nearby cabin just put on the barbeque. So I walked over and asked nicely to borrow his wrench. So he lent it to me. 
After that it was just a matter of minute until I had replaced the tire with the spare. Since it was not the full size tire I had to drive carefully back hope. Oh well, another night with great location and perfect light

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.

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.
