It’s easy to take it for granted. And thus ignore the beauty that is right in front of you.
I’m talking about your own neighbourhood. No matter how beautiful it is, many of us to decide to postpone our trips. I’ve done it. Way too many times. I say to my self: I’ll go tomorrow, next weekend and so on…
Ørnfløya and Sommerøya are only an hour’s drive away from Tromsø. An incredibly beautiful area, which I should have visited a lot more often.
But now I have a couple of friends coming over from USA, so I had to check how it was to hike up to Ørnfløya since winter still was around.
And of course, I brought my camera, since there is always something to take pictures of. The weather was amazing, only a few clouds were missing to make it perfect condition for some photos.
Ørnfløya is just 15 minutes fast walk from the car to the top and then you get this view:
Here is one more photo, taken last year.
Each trip is different.
Then I went to the beach Kvitnesvika. A place I have never photographed before, but I thought would be a great place to go to this evening since the sun would set an hour later.
No wind, no one else on the beach. Just me and my camera.
I stayed there for 90 minutes. And of course, I ended up with a lot of pictures of the same subject. Some of them you can see here, and it shows that you can capture a subject from multiple angles. All the images are taken with wine angle (using a Sigma 8-16mm and Canon 7D).
Here are the results:
