Me and my buddy +Raico Rosenberg  had been talking for long that we wanted to bag a shot of a rising supermoon behind Mt Teide from this lesser known angle. We were standing on top of a smaller volcano to get this viewpoint.

This August the rising moon was taking place an hour after sunset so I could take advantage of the late twilight glow to get a clean shot of the landscape, rather than shooting it backlit by the harsh moonlight later on. Then I waited for the moon to rise to get the shots needed for the moon and stars.

The landscape and the sky were shot with my Canon 17-40 while the moon was shot with the Canon 70-300 L. I always prefer to shoot the moon with a slightly longer lens, in cases like this, as wide angle really tend to push the moon away and make it much smaller than it appears in reality.

Then three frames were blended together in edit.

Let the Light Speak

An image from my local haunt a few weeks ago when I was trying out the new Lucroit Filter Holder with my buddy +Raico Rosenberg. The high tide had covered most of the usual compositional features on this beach so I simply had to go with getting some motion and textures in there.

I am really pleased over my recent sponsorship deal with Lucroit, where I will be leading their Instagram team. Check out their awesome filter holder system at www.lucroit.com

The Gorton Footbrigde

I stumbled upon this lovely looking footbridge late in the evening on our way out from Gorton Creek in the Columbia River Gorge. I really liked the subtle light coming through to highlight the lush spring greens.

Diamonds in the Sky

One of the best things living on Tenerife is the incredibly clear skies we have up in Teide National Park. Being able to drive up at 2300m in less than 45 mins is pure luxury. When you stop the car and switch of the lights the spectacle slowly starts to appear in front of your eyes. I have been up here so many nights but I still get goosebumps every time. Being so high up, far away from light pollution and noise gives you a sense of closeness to the stars which is hard to describe.
Late spring the most spectacular part of the Milky Way slowly becomes visible high up in the sky. The area around the Scorpius constellation with the many nebulas, gases and space dust is truly remarkable too see with your own eyes.
This is Tenerifes most iconic landmark, Roque Cinchado.

This place was challenging indeed to shoot as to get the two "eyes" in this iconic rock you had to wade out quite deep. On top of this, the actual rock plus the surrounding grounds were higher placed than the foreground area which makes you shooting most of the scene in deep shadows.

The light wasn't the best so I waited for that orange twilight to set in to get some colour in the sky. As grad filters don't work in scenes like this I had to grab a few different exposures to cover the dynamic range and get some details into the rocks.

Breaking the norm

High up on the Ucanca plain these enormous puddles only forms after heavy rains. The severe storm we had in November filled up the puddles just the way I wanted.

The startrails are made of various exposures of 3 mins each and later stacked in post. Separate exposures at very high iso were needed for the reflection and the mountains. Then everything were blended together in various layers in PS. I choose to do subtle comet like trails for an added sense of motion.

In the reflection I finally went for static stars as the image became way to busy for my liking with the reflecting star trails.

In the image you see the snow capped Mt Teide and the light behind the jagged ridge is the light pollution from a nearby village.

Holding up the Sky

Mount Teide can be seen from countless areas around the island as it's placed right in the middle of Tenerife. Few angles impress me as much as this one though. It's the only place where you can appreciate the full volcano in view, from its peak at 3,718 m (12,198 ft) to the base at sea level.

Here you can see the classic sea of clouds covering the Orotava Valley and Mount Teide with a recent dusting of snow

According to legend the aboriginal Guanches thought Teide was holding up the sky and housed evil forces.

Due the high dynamic range in this scene I opted to shoot 7 brackets and merge to HDR in Photomatix in combination of some manual blending.

Dramatic Light on Steptoe

Me and my buddy Mahesh Thapa were strolling around the Steptoe Butte in search for new comps when this dramatic weather front rolled in fast over the hills. For a few minutes a great display of crepuscular rays and rain curtains were dancing all over the Palouse landscape. When you get dramatic weather like this, composition often becomes a secondary thought. What really matters is capturing the dramatic light, no matter what. Mahesh often say: "Light is king, composition is queen" and this image really fits his quote so well.

Emerald City in Mono

I thought it was high time for myself to step out of my own comfort zone. I do enjoy B&W photography from other artists but have always considered myself as color guy. This image is a very long exposure of the great looking skyline of Seattle. The storm clouds were moving straight towards us and really screamed for a long exposure.

Passionate Landscape Photographer
Introduction
Hello!

I'm a Swedish landscape photographer based on Tenerife Island, Spain. I shoot a lot of my local landscapes and travel as much as possible. My ultimate goal with my photography is evoke an emotion or a connection through my images which I think is the highest reward for any photographer.

I have been shooting for 30 years, a few years as a pro music photographer. It wasn't until 2009 I found my final call as a photographer when I got severely bitten by the landscape bug. There is no genre within photography that is so challenging and rewarding but at the same time frustrating as shooting landscapes.

I'm a highly active member and contributor on Instagram (www.instagram.com/teidemike) which is also my main social network platform. I'm the Co-Founder of the Pro_IG hub (www.instagram.com/pro_ig) where I write educational material focused on how to succeed on the Instagram platform. I also judge and moderate various feeds and competitions.

I have lived on this beautiful island since 1997 with my lovely wife and our two wild teenage daughters. My restaurant business keeps me pretty occupied when I'm not shooting.
