moon has wings

Although we have a  lot of snow now, its nice to return to look at one of my very favorite shots of 2018. Photo taken in Kuopio, with the full moon rising over Lake Kallavesi.

What do you think of it?



Night time

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..
