Fjords and beyond

Taking a break from editing video today, I went to find the place where my great-grandfather was born. The people living there are my distant relatives and welcomed me to look around and take pictures. Thank you very much for your hospitality!

This is from one of the oldest houses at the farm and it is where they stored food. Made from logs, it is still a solid house! The view is simply amazing and the framing was just there :-)

The Professor

Bob Kerr and his Whoopee Band, a British jazz band/show/performance, visited Volda last week, and I was lucky enough to get total access to take pictures. The whole show was crazy and very visual as you can see :-) And a dream to photograph. Did the whole concert with a 50 mm 1.4 if you are into photography!

Location: Rokken in Volda, Norway.

Girls night

Venus shining bright with a thin layer of Aurora Borealis - night sky over Flø in Norway.

Going home from a friend at Flø, Norway, I just had to stop and try to capture this scene. I noticed a very thin green streak across the sky and it came out even better with the long exposure.

I want to practice night photography a lot more, but I need a cable release to be able to go longer than 30 sec. More equipment to buy!

Into the unknown

We do not know what the future hold. But sometimes we can get an idea even if it is just for a short time ahead.

-------------
I still need to fill in some of the weeks I did not post an image, but I want to get going again. So here is the image for this week. I wanted it to be a bit dark and took this while exploring my Nikon 50mm 1.4 lens. Shot raw and developed in Lightroom.

Mountains and fjords of Norway

Majestic mountains and deep fjords - and small farms down by the sea. This is part of the view that meets you in Sæbø, Norway.

To get here is easy - a domestic flight with the airline Widerøe will take you from Oslo or a number of other airports to Hovden in Ørsta/Volda. From there, it is 45 minutes by car to fantastic view.

This region has a lot of mountains like these, and it is a perfect place if you are into extreme sports. In fact, there is a festival that is being held each year where you can try competing in climbing, skiing, parachuting, paragliding, base jumping and a lot of other things. Check out their website at http://x2festivalen.no/

Sunset rocks

I had actually been scouting this location a few weeks back, but the light and timing did not come together until yesterday. I had a few minutes to spare, got the tripod and my Nikon and got the shot.

Sometimes a few rocks can make a picture :-)

Location: Volda, Norway

Stretching towards the sun

Spring is here, and Coltsfoot (Hestehov in Norwegian) is one of the first flowers to come up and light up the roadsides. I was out driving and suddenly discovered this particularly dense area and decided to try to fill the frame as much as possible.

Golden blues

The ocean is one of my favourite motives. It is always changing and the possibilities are endless. If you like taking pictures of the sunset, don't go home as soon as the sun is below the horizon. Wait a little longer until the glow is dying down and the blue tones start to appear.

Many famous painters have done paintings in exactly this light. But to catch it with a camera, you might want to bring a tripod.

+Ken Fowkes Thank you. I am thinking about getting a wide angel prime, but it depends on if I can find a good one at a good price :-)

Remembering

The sun is going down behind the Fishermen's Memorial at Ferkingstad on the west coast of Norway.

The people of Norway have always been sailors. Fishing, transport, exploring. With one of the longest coast lines in the world (longer than USA), it comes as no surprise. But this also means some will be caught by storms, and even some will find a grave among the the waves.

This humble monument, set right at the shoreline, is to commemorate those that gave their lives at sea.

-------------------

Among other things, I am trying to catch up on a photo theme on Google+, the Weekly Photo Project 2015. I will not be able to do it chronologically, but will do my best over the coming week to get up to date :-) This is what should have been week 12.

Dancing light above Volda

The aurora borealis show last night was fantastic. And by the look of the cloud cover today, that will be all we got to see of it. I just wish I could get some more pictures!

+Nila Sweeney Thank you. Unfortunately, tonight is cloudy and it seems it will stay like that until Friday afternoon. Don't know if there will be anything left, but me and my camera will wait for it :-)

Lightshow in Volda

One of the things I was hoping to be able to photograph during my stay here in Volda was aurora borealis. And yesterday it really showed!

Unfortunately, I did not have access to a car, so I could not get to a spot where I could get a better angle, but one of the students brought a group up to a point where I could capture this image. I am really hoping for a clear sky tonight so I can get another chance!

If you want to see this in person, the winter in Norway is the best time. And the further north, the stronger it will be. But yesterday, some said it could be seen as far south as Paris!

A Norwegian living in Brazil
Introduction
WORK
The area I live in has a very high technological level. A great workforce and great universities. We also have what is called the "Silicon Valley of Brazil" only 20 minutes from here. It is the perfect area for any foreign company to find partners for business.

I have spent the last 20 years in the area of communication. Mainly broadcast tv, editing, film, but also internet. And I really enjoy these areas coming more and more together. Seems like all forms of communication are melting together these days and we get possibilities we could only dream about when I started out!

ACI - Avid Certified Instructor - Please contact me for more details about official Avid MediaComposer training. I am comfortable doing the training in either Norwegian or English, but will be happy to mix in some Portuguese to the best of my ability.

INSPIRATION
I bring my camera with me as often as I can. The best camera is the one you have with you! It is my way of saving some moments. But to me, photography is not decoupled from enjoying the moment. I can walk around for a long time without even taking my camera out, just breathing in the things that are happening around me.

I do have a website set up for some of my pictures, www.oceanwatcher.com . Go there and have a look!

And in between all this digital life, I have a passion for one of the most analogue things there is - cooking. Brazil really has an abundance of products to cook from and I am enjoying it a lot. Even a small garden here can have a variety of fruit trees - mango, avocado, papaya, lime, lemons, oranges, figs and most of them can even be found in several varieties. I sometimes feel like a child discovering all these things. My latest adventure has been starting a small herb garden in the hope I will be able to grow enough for my own use.

Another analog activity is playing golf. I have not played as much as I wanted over the last couple of years, but I love every round I am able to play!
