Construction. Ongoing. Finished. Mostly.

Construction. Ongoing. Finished. Mostly.

After writing the previous post a while ago – almost 2 months now – I had hoped to have done some decent test rides and maybe even a micro weekend tour to test all the gear but alas, “the build” has turned into a Days-Of-Our-Lives-wannabe and is still ongoing.

Shetland Islands, Part II – Up Helly Aa

Shetland Islands, Part I – The Mainland

Shetland Islands, Part I – The Mainland

I’m digging into the archive for this first real post but it has only been rather recently that I managed to process these shots.

Backtracking for a bit. It was December ’08 and HR at work had decided it was cracking down staff accumulating excess holidays. All my flat mates already..

A Quiet Introduction

Hello and welcome to my tiny corner on the web. I’m glad you made it here.

I’m a photographer of sorts; landscapes and travel related subjects attract most of my attention.  Here I hope to share some of my past and hopefully future works and probably some musing on the camera world..
