Beauty of Flight

She is thousands of miles
From here, and miles above me,
Ghosting the stratosphere,
Heading from New York to London.
Though it is late, even
At that height, I know her light
Is on, her window a square
Of gold as she reads mysteries
Above the Atlantic. I watch
The line of black tile on the pool’s
Floor, leading me down the lane.
If she looks down by moonlight,
Under a clear sky, she will see
Black water. She will see me
Swimming distantly, moving far
From shore, suspended with her
In flight through the wide gulf
As we swim toward land together.

––George Bilgere


The backdrop was shot by me with my iPhone from my house a few years ago. I added the balloon to make the picture more interesting.

Fly Away

Fly away
To the other side of the world
Fly away
To that magic place you love
Fly away my love
Fly away

––Peter From

In The Morning Mist

I kissed the morning mist
The cold damp seductress
Bathed in soft glow twilight
Wrapped her arms around me
The moon hung askance atwist
Like a hook with a downward list
Beaming screaming bright
But as for radiant beauty
The North Star won the fight
And sparkled like a halogen lamp
Brilliant white
Against the deep blue sky
Which seemed so clear and endless
Who can say that I am friendless 



I shot the background sunrise from my kitchen window with my Pentax K-7 and then added the beautiful balloon to it all to add to the atmosphere.

The balloon is courtesy of FairieGoodMother over at DeviantArt and can be found here:

Sunny Mountains

Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing. And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb. And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

––Khalil Gibran


Today I just felt like doing something only by using stock photography. I love hot air balloons and I love the mountains so the theme was set.

Summer Night Flight

Now sleeps the crimson petal, now the white;
Nor waves the cypress in the palace walk;
Nor winks the gold fin in the porphyry font:
The firefly wakens: waken thou with me.

Now droops the milk-white peacock like a ghost,
And like a ghost she glimmers on to me.

Now lies the Earth all Danaë to the stars,
And all thy heart lies open unto me.

Now slides the silent meteor on, and leaves
A shining furrow, as thy thoughts in me.

Now folds the lily all her sweetness up,
And slips into the bosom of the lake:
So fold thyself, my dearest, thou, and slip
Into my bosom and be lost in me. 

––Alfred Lord Tennyson


I shot the picture here close to my home one warm summer evening. I added the balloon while editing because I just love hot air balloons.

Summer Fields

I dreamt of the days in the summer fields
With plenty of everything woven to all
Each dream that tomorrow in heart there yields
Before there comes murkiness with the fall
Each song that fervor was dear to employ
Inquiring dawn’s after each twilight
Those feelings that days and reality destroy
When there are no wishing stars falling at night

The squall is at ease that the evening gave
With songs to remember each love from you
And now I am here in my loneliness crave
What went out like blossoms out to the blue? 
If again we shall meet and come to understand
It shall be in futures today can’t command 

––Peter S. Quinn


The picture was taken here in Björkvik, close to the castle Ericsberg, way back in 2013. I added the balloon from PietschPhotography from DeviantArt to create more atmosphere:

Bad Moon Rising

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though; 
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep. 

––Robert Frost


Shot with my Pentax K-7 a few weeks ago. As I was shooting, I wanted to try a different approach, hence why the moon (and the background) is blurry, and avoid backdrops normally used, such as houses, tree lines etc. My goal was to make the picture to stand out from all the moon shots out there. I used Photoshop CC for the editing –– all manual work, no filters and/or presets.

Golden Sunset

Lost - yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered, for they are gone forever.

Horace Mann


I shot this sunrise today as the fog was warming up... I took the picture from my bedroom window with my Sony Xperia Z2..._ _The quality is poor but I like the view...

She looks in the mirror and sees her reflection
She turns to her friend and gossips for attention
She banters and cantors negativity
But her words are a poisonous activity

The Sun shines as she walks on her way
Beauty is everywhere but her vision is gray
The past is a weight that she cannot drop
Pulling her down relentlessly, it just won't stop

It's time to leave her baggage behind
A new destination awaits in due time
All she needs is peace of mind
And better days will soon be prime

––David Scott


I shot this with my Pentax while on holiday in Värmland in July. It's the lake Fryken one cloudy day...

Oh, Beautiful Summer Sunrise...

There's always a story. It's all stories, really. The sun coming up every day is a story. Everything's got a story in it. Change the story, change the world.

― Terry Pratchett


The picture was taken from my bedroom window one foggy morning. I added the beautiful horse by TheCiscoKid67 from DeviantArt to add a bit more excitement into the scene.
This is the horse I used:

Author | Photographer | Digital Artist | WordPress Designer | Web Editor | Pro Blogger

I am an author of historical fact books, photographer, Photoshop artist, WordPress designer (since WP saw the light of day), web editor, professional blogger and musician. Oh yeah, I’m a dad too. That takes a lot of skill, patience and bravery.

Some people say I am crazy – I just call it being passionate about what I do.

I am the third most followed person in Sweden on Google+ (actually I am number one in reality since the two persons before me are inactive) and rank in the top 35 World Wide in average plusses, comments and reshares on/of my posts according to statistics. My Google+ page “Photoshop Tutorials” has more than 240,000 followers and counting.

I am also a member (former moderator) in the Photo Sharing | Fighting Picture Theft Community.

My specialities in photography/image editing are Conceptual Photography, Fine-Art, Landscapes and Photoshop Visual Art.

Now that I mentioned Photoshop, we married way back in the early 1990′s. Today I still don’t understand her fully. Love can be a strange thing…

I want to keep this introduction short because my feed is all about pictures. You can read my full bio over at LinkedIn.

Being a published author as well, I might as well mention the link to my page at my publisher:

I was born in Finland, raised in Sweden and lived many years abroad (Finland, Germany, USA). I guess that makes a cosmopolitan (and curious?).

My main interests, besides the obvious as stated above, are particle physics, cosmology, astronomy, music (I used to play the guitar in a hard rock band in the 1980's), nature hikes, fishing (mainly sea trout), computer technology to mention just a few.

For those of you interested in buying my work, yes, I sell high resolution files of my images (NO prints) which you may print out at a printshop of your convenience. Contact me for more details.

I run the Pixativity Photographer's Directory where I promote excellent pro and amateur photographer's from all over the world.

If you want to use my work for commercial purposes, contact me for detailed pricing information.

Want to use my work without asking me first? Then read this page about my Peter From Creative Donations License.

For my work labeled Photoshop I use my own photography, stock photography and clip-art. Sometimes I mix all three components in my work. Please note that the ARTWORK is All Rights Reserved.
