2014 in Pictures

It's that time of the year once again. I have included my favorite photographs from the past year. It has been a great journey in photography and I have learned a lot about myself and my photography.

In 2014 I was lucky to be published on the TelegraphDaily Mail and Twisted Sifters to mention few. I have just reached 500 000 followers on Facebook. The year has been one of the most rewarding ones since I first started in 2009. This year I have captured some of my favorite images and seems that I have been drawn into night photography more than ever. It's interesting to see how my work looks after 2015. 

What would you want to capture next year? One of my goals is to go and travel more around Finland, Norway, Iceland and more! Sky is the limit, literally! 

I hope you enjoy my favorite photographs from 2014. 

Have a fantastic New Year!

Everlasting Moment

A long night at the coast of Finland. For this photograph, I wanted to capture that everlasting and eternal feeling of movement and constancy. I captured this photograph on the same night as my previously published photograph Divided. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed to spend the whole night there. 

Equipment & Exif

Nikon D800, Samyang 14 mm f/2.8 & Sirui Tripod R-4203L, and Sirui Ball Head K-40X
ISO 1600, 30 secs. f/2.8

Processing

I edited this photograph with my upcoming Lightroom Collection called Phase. The Collection should be available for the public to purchase by next week. I will be still making some changes to it and will be sending it for preview for three lucky owners of my previous Fine Art Preset Collection
