The Day of Long Shadows

Sunset at noon

Sunset at noon. Or that's how it might seem. Family doing a sync walk at Hellestø Beach: Photo: Geir Ertzgaard

A few weeks ago I uploaded a few images from the «place I would miss«. Today Eli Reinholdtsen published an image from a place she plans to return to take pictures. She called the piece «Off Sketching«. I liked the image she posted, but also the idea she was presenting in the text: To get a good image, or even to get better at photographing, you have to return again and again until you’re satisfied, and then return again. So I did return to that place I would miss, this time with my brother and my daughter, and I tried to do what I find hardest of all: Trying out my fisheye. So as they say: If you want to improve, you have to practice, and this image was from my practice lap last Sunday, which was a day of long shadows. On the west coast, the sun sets at 3:45PM these days, so the long shadows start falling early.

    Herlig! Så det var det du drev på med da du gnålte om at vi måtte gå i takt 🙂 Godt du har tatt med datter på bildet slik at hun veier opp for den rare broren som går på andre siden av skyggen din 🙂

      Ja, det er mye rart man gnåler med på fototur som folk ikke skjønner noe særlig av. Men jeg hadde faktisk en plaaaaaan;-). Håper du føler deg velpresentert. Jeg syns du tar deg godt ut, jeg.
