Photography for the New Nokia SmartPhone

I'm proud to see one of my pictures selected as the new Nokia smartphone default background! You may have seen it in various places. There is an addition of another of my images in the catalog of the phones backgrounds. The mobilephone actually sold out in a minute in China! 

Here is a view of the phone and picture.

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


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

The End

I had great time in Meri-Pori Finland last Sunday. Here is a picture from my trip there. It was great fun, but freezing cold in the very windy conditions. Luckily my tripod was solid enough for the windy condition.

This is an addition to the series Edge.

These Pieces Fit

I was driving through some places few nights ago and stopped on this park to see if there was something to shoot. This bench was nicely in the middle of these two trees. Some fog and light to make it interesting. Waiting for more nights like these.
