Lavender sunset

I finally got to visit a lavender farm that has been on my list for a long time. Again I was on the road together with James and Belmira McLeod. Excellent company!

The farm is in the state of São Paulo, so it was a bit of a drive, but we timed it so we would get there well before sunset, hoping to get some good pictures.

This image is pretty close to what I had in my mind while going there. It would have been nice to have a graduated ND filter so I could have held back the sky and sun a bit. That would have saved me some work in Lightroom, but I am pretty happy with the result.

The farm is called Lavandária and is close to a city called Cunha. It is almost at 1200 m above sea level, so it can be a bit windy and cold after the sun has gone down. They have different cycles at different parts of the farm, so there are always areas with flowers. Admission is just 10 Reais and if your car is strong enough, you can drive almost all the way up to the main house. It is definitely worth a visit with the whole family!

Are you on Instagram?

Lately, I have been using Instagram a lot, but it has been a very slow growth of followers there. Do you have any good tip on how to reach out to more people? I will never buy followers or repost a lot of other content. I prefer to keep it clean with pictures by me so it is a kind of showcase.

This is my latest post there:

Golden harvest

The high altitude of the Mantiqueira area makes it ideal for a lot of plants and especially coffee. The conditions here is perfect and this has made the area to the most important area for coffee in Brazil.

Brazil is the largest exporter of coffee in the world, and coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world - only beaten by oil!

The coffee that is grown up here is arabica - the type preferred by those looking for the highest quality. Harvested by hand and processed with great care, the result is a fantastic coffee. This year is so far looking good. Enough rain at the right time - now we are just hoping for dry weather in June and July!

A very special (and long) commercial

This must be the longest commercial I have come across. And certainly the longest with no dialog!

Molboerne

One of the projects I worked on a long time ago! I got it from Peter Bjørn Nielsen on Betacam SP and transferred it to the computer via a BlackMagic Teranex converter. The result is looking great! Converted to MPG4 in Davinci Resolve.

Soria Moria

"Far, far away he saw something shining and glimmering"

The Soria Moria palace is a Norwegian fairy tale about a shining city far away up behind the mountains. It is also a series of illustrations made by Norwegian Theodor Kittelsen.

When I saw the evening sun hitting the top of the mountains, I immediately remembered the story and the drawings. It is not difficult to think that people a long time ago would believe that the reflections came from a fantastic city and they made all kinds of stories about it! And this fairy tale has all - a wonderful city, poor people, trolls and princesses.

Darkness is getting closer

From the trip yesterday where the last glow of the sun can be seen through the cloud around one of the mountains in Romedalen, close to Volda. In just a few weeks, these mountains will once again be covered in snow.

Romedalen

I first visited this valley 8 years ago. Then it was early spring and still some snow around. But this time I got the fading autumn colors on a very quiet Sunday together with a couple of friends. This valley is the result of a glacier pushing through the landscape thousands of years ago, then pulling back to reveal this big U-shape.

Autumn river

The colors are at their peak, but so is the rain! I was setting up on a rock in the middle of this river and it suddenly started raining. So after two images, I was forced to run for cover.
