The City Center of Ålesund – Gallery

Enjoy my last post from Ålesund – a photo gallery with random photos.

«Ålesund is a town and municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. It is part of the traditional district of Sunnmøre, and the center of the Ålesund Region. It is a sea port, and is noted for its unique concentration of Art Nouveau architecture.» (Wikipedia)

Ålesund Mosaics

Mosaic Panoramic View of Ålesund City Center

As I was post-processing my photos from our trip to Ålesund, I wanted to experiment and made this mosaic panoramic view of Ålesund City Center. I combined 10 different photos that were shot with different settings at different times – some day shots, some night shots. They were all shot from the same balcony, but the camera wasn’t in a fixed position.

If one wants a perfect result on a mosaic like this, it takes some planning before shooting: the camera should be on a tripod, you should use a number of fixed positions (for example 3 steps to get a panorama), the ISO should be the same on all shots and also the focal length. Since I didn’t plan this at all, but just wanted to experiment and have fun with the photos that I had available, I can reveal to you that if you’re looking for perfection in this mosaic, you’ll find a lot of errors like parts that are skewed, repeating tiles, weird geometry etc, etc. These are the settings for the different shots: 

  • 5,0 sec at f/22, ISO100 / 24mm
  • 1/30 sec at f/16, ISO 200 / 24mm
  • 1/25 sec at f/16, ISO200 / 47mm
  • 1/40 sec at f16, ISO200 /24mm
  • 30,0 sec at f/11, ISO100 / 24mm
  • 1/10 sec at f/11, ISO100 / 45mm
  • 0,4 sec at f/22, ISO100 / 99mm
  • 1/6 sec at f/22, ISO100 / 80mm
  • 1/13 sec at f/14, ISO400 / 24mm
  • 0,3 sec at f/22, ISO100 / 24mm

Here’s a gallery with some other Ålesund photos: Panoramic, HDR and Panoramic HDR.

The Seafood Museum in Ålesund

Enjoy these photos from the aquarium, or the seafood museum like I call it, in Ålesund, Norway.

Atlanterhavsparken is the official name and it’s one of the largest saltwater-aquariums in northern Europe.

I loved this view and wanted to share another panoramic photo of Ålesund. This was shot earlier this summer with my Canon Ixus 130. If you missed my previous post, it’s here: https://cardinalguzman.wordpress.com/2014/07/09/a-trip-to-alesund-norway/

A trip to Ålesund, Norway

Panoramic view of Ålesund

It’s been quiet in this blog lately. I had to finish up a whole lot of stuff at work before I could start my vacation and then we had a family member for a visit. We rented a car and drove to Ålesund – a city in the North Western part of Norway. It was a very long drive, but the city and the area was beautiful & spectacular, so it was worth it!

I hope you’re all having a great summer! More photos from Ålesund and the surrounding area will be posted later.
