~ Across the road ~ ⠀ Channeling my inner @abstractaerialart today. If you don't know those two extremely talented brothers you're missing out on some of the best aerial imagery out there. ⠀ Next year I will need to chat with the farmer to arrange some better looking patterns on his fields. From a recent visit to Skåne in southern Sweden with my buddy @strixphoto.

~ Tequila ~ ⠀ Blooming Agave plants makes for a great graphical subject matter under the right conditions. This fine pair stuck out to me when the last sun rays hit them in a valley in northern Tenerife. A 400mm lens and a heavily underexposed image did the trick to enhance the backlit flowers.

~ Swoosh ~ ⠀ Shooting seascapes handheld is much more fun right? Single exposure ICM shot taken at this rather popular beach amongst photographers In Tenerife. ⠀ It's 3 years since I posted my last seascape image. While I still shoot seascapes at times, my general shooting habits and style have changed a lot since then. More about that another day. ⠀ Technical mumbo jumbo for those interested: Canon 5D Mk IV + Canon EF 16-35/4. ISO 1600, 0.6 sec exposure at f/5. Handheld with slight panning motion during the exposure. Minor adjustments in @adobe @lightroom

~ Hot Mist ~ ⠀ An early summer morning by a secluded lake deep in the forest of Värmland with @wisslaren turned out way better than expected.

~ Fleeting Trees ~ ⠀ Nature can be pretty awesome in creating unique temporary artwork on its own. When light coral sand meets black lava sand magic can happen if conditions are right. ⠀ 📷: Panasonic Lumix DMC-G80 + Lumix G Vario 12-60mm

~ Deer in Motion ~ ⠀ A small herd of Fallow Deer standing on a ridge in Fyledalen in Skåne, Sweden. Opted for a slightly longer exposure to get some motion in them while grazing. From a trip with my buddy @strixphoto. Special thanks to @sig.pix for letting me use your big mama 😉👊🏼

~ Calming Blues ~ It's no secret that Instagram's compression and images with delicate tonal gradients don't go exactly well together. I hope the image manage to transmit the peacefullness dispite that. For those of you who are still patiently following, thank you for staying put. It just took me a while cloning out the mosquitoes in this one. 😬

~ Roncal Patchwork ~ ⠀ Shooting landscapes with long lenses is something find really appealing. It's a great way to single out smaller more compressed parts of wider landscapes and put a more personal touch on your images. Even better is that you avoid coming home with shots like everyone else if you happen to shoot from known wide viewpoints that can often be found in mountainous regions. This is from a trip last fall with @rafairusta in Navarra.

~ Incoming ~ ⠀ The past winter have been very kind to me in terms of unique light and weather in Teide National Park. During a few weeks around Christmas I was lucky to be in the right place on numerous occasions when a series of really photogenic storms hit the island. This morning I struck gold and could witness this beautiful weather front moving on over me with these pretty good looking Mammatus clouds.

~ The Skagit Cabin ~ ⠀ Local knowledge can never be replaced with a guidebook, Google Earth or whatever tool you use when visiting a place for the first time. Hiring a local guide or joining a tour, is by far the most effective way to get good results from a trip. Not only will you get access to prime spots but you will also contribute to the local economy by hiring local businesses. ⠀ On this trip we had the pleasure of being shown around by my good friend @starvingphotographer who took us to this lovely looking cabin on the backroads in Skagit Valley. #NoNameLandscapes

~ The Leaf Curve ~ ⠀ Exploring new grounds where you have no expectations of what comes around the next corner is such an important part of landscape photography for me. This is from a trip with my good friend @rafairusta where we stumbled upon this beautiful looking creek while scouting in the Irati Forests in Navarra. #NoNameLandscapes

~ Jagged ~ ⠀ A short moment of light hits a range of jagged peaks on Tenerife,Spain. ⠀ ▪Panasonic Lumix DMC-G80 ▪Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150mm ▪ISO 200 - 1/800 sec - f/8.0
