R is for Rust

Rust is more formally known as Iron oxide, but that makes it sound so dull in the ears of a hobby photographer. It is one of the more popular subjects in photography since it has so many aspects, found nearly everywhere and can be photographed in 1 million+ different ways. Here are five of them. Above is a rusty welding point.

This is from the side of a medium sized (not well maintained) lorry.

I stepped on this iron plate before I saw that it was an excellent subject.

This is from the inside of the hull of an old steamer that is undergoing rehabilitation.


And here is from the edge of a quay (just before sunset).

Maybe I'm getting a bit rusty myself by now.

Windows watching

What do you do when you sit in your car waiting, watching some windows in front of you reflecting other windows? You take a photo through the car's window.

Building a boat

They do it in the old-fashioned way at "Hardanger fartøyvernsenter"

Ducky reflections

So - what is this little guy making all the acrobatics for?

I think he may have spotted something - not to mention someone :-)

The female of the species!

And did it work? Your guess is as good as mine...

Still testing - rusty result

What do you do when you are out testing a new camera and it starts to rain? You find somewhere to hide. I found a timber merchant's store house. And what do you do while you wait for the rain to stop? You look for a subject. I found this one.

Just testing

I'm at the moment testing my new camera, a Canon 7D. During this process I among other things tried out the burst speed of the camera (8 pic./ sec). It worked very well, but at the same time I also tried the autofocus modes, auto ISO and a couple of other things. Birds are perfect for this and the burst worked as it should, but the auto IS0 gave me a too low aperture and I thus also missed a bit on the autofocus. The shutter speed was 1/1000. The photo also became underexposed, noisy and slightly out of focus. When it in addition was shot in jpg there was not much I could do and it was on the way to the bin. However, I liked the position of the bird - so here it is.

Nautical Reflections

This ship is the "MS Nordlys", one of the ships of Hurtigruten (The Norwegian Coastal Voyage) . It is here berthed at "Bryggen" (The Wharf) in Vågen (The old Habour) in Bergen. Last Monday they had a promotional "open ship", and we used the opportunity to have a look around.

This is the view from the deck across "Vågen" very late in the afternoon. Now I know how we are going to spend our next summer holidays...
