Impressions from Alta II

Here’s the second gallery of photos from Alta. These are shot with my Canon EOS 600D. Like I mentioned in my previous post, the EOS 600D had difficulties handling the white balance at the ice hotel, while the Canon Ixus 130 reproduced the special light & colour pretty accurately. The greenish colour in yesterdays posts is therefore more true to reality than the blue you’ll see in this post.

Canon EOS 600D versus Canon Ixus 130

You can see that there’s a huge difference in how the two cameras registered the colours in this artificially lighted ice hotel.

Impressions from Alta

IMG_2412As you know from my last post, we recently went for a visit to Alta. I’ve separated the photos in two galleries. The first gallery is photographed with my Canon Ixus 130 pocket camera. The second gallery is shot with my Canon EOS 600D – which is a much better camera than the pocket one – but, interestingly enough, when we were at the ice hotel Sorrisniva, my EOS600D couldn’t handle the white balance, no matter which settings I used. So in this first gallery, the photos from Sorrisniva have more correct colours than in the second gallery.

A day at the Delhi Derby

Some years back I ended up living in Delhi for a period of 3-4 months, which means that I’ve pretty much seen & experienced, if not everything, then at least most of what Delhi has to offer – both touristy & non-touristy things. Some of the stuff I’ve seen/done several times: During my stay I met many backpackers and I frequently joined them to check out different places in Delhi, which resulted in me experiencing recurring deja-vu’s… (hmm… haven’t I seen this place before..?)

The blades are sharpened

Yes, the blades are sharpened and ready for action. All that needs to be done now, is to wait for the cold and the ice to come sailing over the northern hemisphere. As soon as both of them have arrived it’s off to the nearest skating rink or park to indulge in the enchanting joys of winter!

Autumn in Oslo

This is an annual event which I guess we all have grown accustomed to, but still:  the visual aspects of the photosynthesis can be breathtaking every year.  Too bad that autumn also implies a change of temperature and that it signalizes the upcoming winter.  Here’s a quote about an English autumn, but it might as well could have been a quote about a Norwegian autumn.

Random pictures of TLV

Just some random pictures from Tel Aviv. Trying out the tourist camera Canon Ixus130. Actually I much prefer one of my other cameras where I have manual focus (digital single-lens reflex camera – SLR/DSLR), because then the photographer is more in control of the motive and one can have more diversity.
