About 1 1/2 year ago I visited Toscana and Firenze (Tuscany & Florence). Now I’ve finally edited and shared the photos.
This is an old photo. It was shot back in 2005 when I spent a few months in Rishikesh, India. I’ve done quite a bit of work on the photo.
Rishikesh was a great place to relax.
Here’s my gallery this month: a couple of the photos are from the last days of September, but most of them from the beginning of October.
In 2012 I shot a photo of Akerselva (Aker River) one early morning. Yesterday I went there again to re-shoot the area, not only that particular place, but several spots along the river. You can never fully recreate a photo and get the same result, because it’s too many random things that you have no control over, but it’s still fun to re-shoot places and compare the shots afterwards. In 2012 I was there early in the morning, yesterday in the afternoon, so obviously the light was different, but also the foliage. Different cameras and optics were used in the two shots.
I’ve added the original photo for comparison.
All the photos from yesterday’s photo-walk is uploaded to my Flickr account, so make sure to check out the gallery there.
Here’s another one for comparison, it was taken next to Hønse Lovisas Hus:
There’s a lot of Akerselva photos in the Flickr gallery, plus some videos from the opening of the local skate park.
«The Changing Seasons 2016» is a blogging challenge with two versions: the original (V1) which is purely photographic and the new version (V2) where you can allow yourself to be more artistic and post a painting, a recipe, a digital manipulation, or simply just one photo that you think represents the month. Anyone with a blog can join this challenge and it’ll run throughout 2017.
It doesn’t matter if you couldn’t join the first month(s), late-comers are welcomed.
These are the rules, but they’re not written in stone – you can always improvise, mix & match to suit your own liking:
These are the rules for Version 1 (The Changing Seasons V1):
These are the rules for Version 2 (The Changing Seasons V2):

I shot these on a Sunday walk two weeks ago. It’s Alnaelva (Alna River) in Oslo. It was a cloudy day and I used my surroundings to support the camera, so that I could take long exposure shots and get the soft effect on the water. I could have used my tripod, but I didn’t bring it because I didn’t want to carry it around.
Using the surroundings (a fence, a fallen down tree and such things) to support the camera is cheap and easy for those of you who don’t have a tripod, or if you’ve left the tripod at home. The theme for #photo101 today is Landscape.
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.
As a warm up for the big photo walk tomorrow, I went for a walk by Alnaelva (Alna River) tonight.
