winter wonderland

    Newer Older

    I always loved this scene with its mysterious light, great sense of depth and beauty. I captured it on film on a mountain trip between Christmas and New Years Eve in 1997 (with the Nikon FE-2). I have already posted a BW version earlier and I think I like that version even better. But, I figured this color version could be a nice end of the year "post card" photo for 2010. The photo itself is not so spectacular but the scene is of course very special with the light breaking through the fog behind the snowed down trees.

    It has been a very busy year for me and I have not posted many photos on Flickr. I hope to improve this in 2011. Most of my time at Flick I devote as one of the admins of the group PPro - thoughtful meeting place to share images, get honest critique, and build a knowledge. Another reason for the lack of photos in 2010 has also been that my key projects in 2010 have been of a very personal nature. I have turned to photographing people (trying to lift the family photo to a higher level). It has been a very rewarding experience and I have been shooting most of my stuff with the 50mm f/1.4 and the 35mm f/1.8. Lately I have been enjoying the superb ISO performance of the new D7000 body and shooting people and places in very low light conditions. I have also been working on and completed two family book projects.

    I thank you all for your interest in my photography. In spite of my 2010 absence as an active Flickr poster and commenter I hope we can stay in touch also in 2011. I wish you all happy holidays, Merry Christmas and a really happy New Year!

      What fantastically shaped trees to photograph in the mist. Full of spooky atmosphere and more than a hint of Sleepy Hollow!

      Terrific scene - the light is perfect, and the subject seems otherworldly. Great stuff.
