Blue light, that moment after the sun has set but there is still light. Often the most beautiful moments.
Spring is creeping along, slowly but summer and hopefully swimming is soon on the agenda again.
Due to the pandemic, my swimming hobby has been on hold for almost two months now. A shame as its my favorite sport to do. Swimming in lakes and the sea is not really an option yet, too cold to do much more than a few meter of swimming. Not really possible to swim for a kilometer or few as would be the preference.
Hope you are doing well, wherever you are! Lets hope this struggle with the flu will be over sooner than later.
I am not a night time photographer in any way, I rarely have the energy to carry a tripod around and a tripod is pretty much a necessity to get anything usable in dim conditions. Unless you happen to be lucky and own a Canon Eos 1D X or a Nikon D4 / Df which can see in the dark pretty much..
However one can improvise, use other methods to stabilise the camera. These following photos are by no means excellent, but I just wanted to show a glimpse of what my home city looks in the dark. Definitely need to improve upon this and start to carry a tripod maybe..
Ice-breaker (the sort of ship designed for one purpose alone, to plow through sheer ice and keep the sea open for passage in the coldest of climates).
Katajanokka and a bit of the centre of the city in the right side of the photo.
All photos taken with around a 30sec exposure at iso 320, steadied on a railing or a rock..
