I was hoping for clear, crisp weather and maybe a combined northern lights shots and a meteor from the Draconids – wich is the hot topic in tonight’s sky. I saw three really nice shooting stars, but ales, didn’t capture them. I would probably have caught some more, if it wasn’t for the clouds. I caught a few nice though! It was really the AHHHH!-moment of my Northern Lights watching career – but it was nice anyway.
At one point I managed to do a long exposure of Widerøe’s Flight WF855 (Dash 8-100) from Narvik taking off from Narvik Airport at 1010 pm (GMT+1). Funny how the landing lights and strobes made a nice pattern across the beautiful moonlit scene.
Was on my way to the store to stock up for det weekend, when I stumbled on this beautiful cloud. So out with the camera, and as it happened, I decided to go for an HDR-photo. So this photo is a composite of 3 photos shot with different exp. comp. (-1 to +1).
No, haven’t dropped dead – just been crazy busy. Finally back in Northern Norway, and the midnight sun is shining straight in my face as I write these lines. Probably time to force myself to bed. It is pretty hard when your brain is telling you: -hey, the sun is shining. Why sleep? It isn’t night yet…
Well, while I’m forcing my way into bed, you can enjoy this HDR photo I shot about an hour ago…
On the North-West coast of Skagen I happen to stumble on this lonely house. It’s windows boarded up and with a futile attempt to stop the raging North Sea by dumping boulders around it. All the land around this house had already been reclaimed by the sea. My guess is, that it will no longer be there after a few storms. People in this area has never been able to secure long-term loans from banks if they wished to build a house in this area! It is simply to much of a risk.

Please, watch these film:
This has NOTHING to do with protecting artists’ Copyright! They are already protected through the law over most parts of the world – and I support the ones I like by buying their music and films.
This has EVERYTHING to do with giving the Entertainment Industry (and subsequently corrupt regimes) the TOTAL control over The Internet…

Shot this HDR-photo today. This photo is a composite of 5 photos. The camera was hand held, but inspite of that I ended up with a pretty nifty result..!
