Forrest in black & white

forrest

I forgot to publish this post on Monday…

I took a walk into the forest on Monday night. I sat down for a while and listened to the silence.
I made a couple of pictures and the picture above looks best in black and white.

Or what do you think?


Fight or play?

Magpies

I saw the magpies in the distance this morning and I thought they tried to chase away a bird of prey.
But when I got closer I saw these magpies jump and fly back and forth on the roof.

It’s hard to tell if they are playing or fighting.


79

79 Fieldfare

A photo from last night. I managed to capture 79 Fieldfare in the picture.

I used Nikon D3 with 600/4 – 1/250s at f10 ISO 800


Pink moon

Pink moon

I was out for a short walk the other night but I had to run back home to get my tripod and the longest lens I own. The moon was rising colored in pink.


The best of July

August already, July just rused by. I managed to find time to shoot and the picture above is my favoritet from July.

On the evening when I photographed the seagull the sky was covered with clouds. These conditions gives a smooth and soft light. Which is perfect.

For those of you who are interested in technology, I used the Nikon D3 with 600/4. ISO 1600, 1/400s at f8.

Life is not always easy for a squirrel

Squirrel

Harassed by magpies and thrushes when you looking for food to yourself and your family. Add two cats and finally a photographer.

Life is not always easy for a squirrel…


Image of the month, June 2009

Crus crusIt’s never easy to pick one image…

Why did I chose this image? I’m not sure. The crane is a beautiful and magnificent bird. Maybe it’s that simple.

After I took the shot I felt that the image should be black and white. It dosen’t work i color.

I use the AF-S 600/4 on the Nikon D3. 1/1600 at f4, ISO 800 handheld.

Later in the digital darkroom I made the basic adjustments in Lightroom. In Photoshop I used Silver Efex Pro to make the image black and white.


Black & white vs color

B&W or color?

The picture shows a seagul who just caught a an insect. The photo is made June 13 2007.

Which do you prefer, black and white or color?


Common Tern

Common Tern

Last night I visited the common terns to see how the wore doing. I’m planing to use a floating hide to get closer and hopefully better images. I made some images showing them in their environment.

I used the Nikon D3, 600/4 – ISO 3200, 1/250 f4
