Alone In The Light

While going through some of my photographs from last year, I came across with this one. A shot on a beautiful misty Summer morning, taken about a year ago. As the sun was rising I had my camera on my tripod and used my remote controller to trigger the camera. 

Equipment 

Nikon D800, Nikon 16 - 35 mm f/4.0 VR, Sirui R4203-L tripod & Hähnel Giga T Pro II remote controller.

Exif
ISO 100, f/5.6, 35 mm, 1/1600 sec.

Post-processing

Lightroom for color temperature, contrast and saturation. I also used one of my presets to base edit the photo: Morning Blues. 

More info about the tools I use, can be found in the FAQ-page.

Summer Night in Finland

A couple of weeks ago I spent an entire night driving around and searching for something interesting to photograph. I saw some fog in the field and stopped to see if I would see anything else to make the photo more interesting. These four cows were half asleep and I sneaked to take the shot and didn't bother the cows more and drove away. 

There was something quite traditional about this place as a Finnish landscape. All of the things: the field, the trees, the fog and the cows were just as in some painting I had seen years ago. I hope you like the picture. It's something different yet very traditional Finnish scenery. 

I hope to make more trips like these in the near future. I love to take pictures at night and in foggy situations. As you have probably guessed! :)
