I get up early most days, it’s one of the few advantages of being a boarder line insomniac. It meansI have plenty of time to cycle the 18 km’s to work before the local town is awake or have even thought about waking up.
I’m lucky in that at least nearly a half of my route takes me along the river path where there are lots of things I can record and the weather is never the same.
This Picture was taken at around 04.30 in the morning everything was totally quiet even the ducks were sleeping when I rolled to a stop by this old stone quay.
It was a foggy start that day so there was plenty of atmosphere I took this low shot which a mate said looked like the cover of some new Scandinavian Crime novel. Anyway just to show the difference I took a similar shot next day without fog and a different aperture setting.

Vermeer pinhole camera 2nd try. Living in Norway you are never too far from a river or stream. This one is a short 15 minute drive from my home. I set the Vermeer up on a tripod and took a light reading which was 57 sec and 100ASA .
Not a bad shot considering the weather which was overclouded.
Light measured with Pinhole Assistant App on my iPhone 4s

Second in the series.For those interested.
I have darkened the sky to bring out the dramatic light on the sandy cliffs. I had forgotten my polarising filter that day so in Aperture I selected the blue colour in the sky, removed the luminance and added a little saturation in the colour version .I then added the red filter effect using Silver Efex pro 2.
One of the places I visited on my holidays was the Isle of Wight. Thats that small island you see in the middle of the south coast of England.This viewpoint ,which was packed with people, looks out to the Needles which is that jagged formation to the left. In the distance you can see the mainland.
