Horta, Portugal: A couple of years ago we went to visit the Azorean Islands of Portugal. Since then I’ve had these photos in a “waiting to be published” folder on my computer. Today I figured that it was about time to post them in this point&shoot gallery: Horta (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈɔɾtɐ]) is a single […]
What happens when a bunch of couchsurfers meet up after dinnertime? A great party and a jam session, that’s what happens.

One night while I was exploring the streets of Horta, I came across this statue and took 3 bracketed shots with my Canon EOS600D (EF50mm f/1.8 II lens) at f/1.8, ISO 100. Now, three years later, I finally sat down and processed the images. It took me a while, but I like the results so […]
The photos in the following gallery were shot in the area near Terminal Maritimo in Horta, Faial Island, Açores, Portugal. f/1.8 | 30 sec | ISO-100 (of course you can click the image for a large version) I’ve posted many of these before, but I’ve re-edited the photos in this gallery.
Nights – my favorite time of photographing. I love long exposures. Tonight I’m sharing this night photo for Paula’s Thursday Challenge. I shot this one (technically speaking it’s these four shots) in Terceira, Açores. Angra do Heroísmo, locally referred to as Angra, is a municipality and city on the island of Terceira, within the […]
I’ve been working/re-working on some old photos lately and one of them is suitable for this week’s photo challenge. These were shot on the Azorean Islands of Portugal back in 2012.

Oooh, The Treachery of Images (La trahison des images). I love it when I get to pretend that I’m a bit of an intellectual. René, this one is for you!
For the Weekly Photo Challenge this week I chose this photo of Mount Pico. I was supposed to post this earlier, but I forgot all about it. The photo was shot during one of my sleepless nights. “Mount Pico (Portuguese: Montanha do Pico), is a stratovolcano and highest point on the Portuguese island of Pico in […]
Sometimes I love wandering around alone, taking photos in the middle of the night. This is a photo from one of those sleepless nights.
More photos from the docks of Ponta Delgada, Portugal.
We were in Lisbon and on our last night there we had a hotel room with a view over a glass roof that covered the reception area. It was a full moon night and early in the morning, as I was trying to capture the reflection of the full moon that was hiding behind the next-door building, […]
Açores, Waterfall II From Wikipedia: In Norse mythology, Mímisbrunnr (Old Norse “Mímir’s well” is a well associated with the being Mímir, located beneath the world tree Yggdrasil. Mímisbrunnr is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. Both sources relate that […]
I’ve posted a lot of photos from Portugal lately and there’s still more to come, but to break up the posts a little bit and to keep some sort of variation in the blog: here’s some photos from Norway! Some of you might have seen my previous posts about the Stave Churches located in Valdres, or […]
