#211 When things don’t work out…

I am sure you have experienced it. A fantastic journey, beautiful views and many warm feelings. Pictures everywhere. The compositions never ends. Maybe the ultimate photo experience. Then you get home and load the pictures in to your computer. Suddenly the feelings are all gone. The shots are flat, the horizon is slanted and the…

#210 About a Picture

During the initial Covid years many of us – including me – learned to work and live almost all our lives at home. It was then I started to go for a short walk in the morning before work – something I still try to do every now and then. I find it to be…

#204 About a Picture

Autumn is here for real. It’s getting darker. Rainy days. We have seen the first morning with frost on the lawn. Nature shines of yellow, red and green. I shoot it in black and white – but I see it in color…

#202 Day three

Clear blue skies today in the Swedish mountains. The best way to experience the views over the fantastic landscape. Unfortenatly we are a couple of weeks too late this year. The trees are almost without colors. I can imagine they were very beautiful two weeks ago… However, the lingonberrys gave the ground nice colors. It…

#201 Day two

Day two in our weekend in the Swedish mountain areas. Rain promised – but we were lucky. A six hour hike with about ten minutes of rain. Windy and low clouds but much better than expected. The 35 mm lens proved to be a perfect companion on a hike like this. No need to bring…

#200 Taking the M outdoors

A weekend in the swedish mountain areas with the Leica M. Nice. Normally I would carry my Fuji X-T2 and at least two or three lenses on a trip like this. Then I also must carry food, water, coffee and more in the backpack. It’s killing me. This time I decided to only carry my…

#199 Moody Mist

A morning walk before starting work. Three degrees Celcius and mist over the fields nearby my home. It feels like the summer finally is moving into autumn. The nature is turning red and yellow again. The following weeks can be really beautiful – but this morning is more like the mood in the world today……

#193 Trying something new

I have decided to try out landscape photography for a while and see if I can learn something new. When I say try I mean that I will try and give it more time and effort. Not just catch a snapshot as I hike. More composing, using a tripod, working on my technique, editing and…

#191 What just happened?

It feels like it was only yesterday when the fields were green and growing. The cold and darkness was gone and the days were getting longer. Now, suddenly, the farmers are harvesting all around. But it is only august and we still have a couple of months before the days are shorter then the nights,…

#185 Lake Vättern in the viewfinder

A beautiful day by lake Vättern – the second largest lake in Sweden. My trusty Leica M240P was equipped with a Zeiss ZM 2,8/21 Biogon. To compose the picture, when using wide lenses with an M, I like to use an external viewfinder. I wear glasses – and it is almost impossible to see the…

#179 About a Picture

Drove by this field as I was buying eggs from a nearby farm. The red poppies are beautiful – even though the farmer didn’t like them. As I was taking the picture he stopped his car beside me and said ”Are you photographing the misery…”. Then he laughed and said ”You are not the first….

#174 Taking my M out

I recently found a good price for a Zeiss 2,8/21mm for my Leica M camera. Yesterday I tried it out in a nearby forest. I haven’t used my M-cameras so much for outdoor or landscape photography before. Often I take my Fujis instead, as I go out for a hike or something like that. That…
