Travel in Norway

This is a collection of the photos taken on my two trips to Norway following my earlier post on Lofoten Islands. Although the mountains in the Main Island is so much taller, I still very much prefer Lofoten which has a more authentic feeling.

  • Aperture: ƒ/3.2
  • Camera: NIKON D750
  • Taken: 5 June, 2016
  • Focal length: 35mm
  • ISO: 100
  • Shutter speed: 1/4000s

This picture is taken at a very famous viewpoint Sohlbergplassen which is not in Lofoten but on the main Island of Norway. Norway does not have many people but still we only have that place to ourselves for like 5 minutes before other people arrives and makes it impossible to shoot. I am glad I got the picture I wanted.

Sohlbergplassen

 

  • Aperture: ƒ/4
  • Camera: NEX-6
  • Taken: 23 April, 2013
  • Focal length: 10mm
  • ISO: 100
  • Shutter speed: 1/1000s

This shot is taken at the Mydral station during our Norway in a Nutshell tour. That day the weather was horrible and snowing badly. We could not see anything beyond the falling snow. There are still nice pictures to be taken if you keep at it. This shot was taken when we were boarding the train after a brief stop. I edited it to give it an antique look. There aren’t manly colors in the original picture to begin with so I chose to go black and white.

Winter Railway

 

  • Aperture: ƒ/7.1
  • Camera: NEX-6
  • Taken: 24 April, 2013
  • Focal length: 12mm
  • ISO: 100
  • Shutter speed: 1/125s

This is shot in Bergen. One of my standard heavily used composition is shooting my family crossing a road. Reason is I usually can get some space free in front so that the picture is not so messy. The road junction also naturally leads the eye into the picture by providing leading lines. The subjects also look more natural when you have them walking, crossing the junction rather than standing stiffly.

Bergen

 

  • Aperture: ƒ/2.8
  • Camera: X-M1
  • Taken: 30 May, 2016
  • Focal length: 12mm
  • ISO: 200
  • Shutter speed: 1/480s

This shot is taken from a low viewpoint (around eye height of my little boy). I shoot from my eye height, all my pictures will be looking down and sometimes that is not very flattering and boring. I have forgotten what street this shot is taken at so no GPS location map. Apologies.

Oslo

 

  • Aperture: ƒ/9
  • Camera: X-M1
  • Taken: 8 June, 2016
  • Focal length: 12mm
  • ISO: 200
  • Shutter speed: 1/240s

Kids love to run about and so I always shoot a burst of many photos and choose the best expression out of like many shots.

Church Near Kinsarvik

 

  • Aperture: ƒ/2.8
  • Camera: NIKON D800
  • Taken: 5 June, 2016
  • Focal length: 200mm
  • ISO: 100
  • Shutter speed: 1/1600s

This is shot from afar using a tele lens. I like the way all the cow is staring at my Daughter and my daughter mildly amused expression. The Flowers in the foreground also add depth to the picture. The picture is shot near Andalsnes but I am not sure exactly where.

Me and Cows

 

  • Aperture: ƒ/2.8
  • Camera: NIKON D800
  • Taken: 7 June, 2016
  • Focal length: 200mm
  • ISO: 100
  • Shutter speed: 1/5000s

I cropped this picture such that there is no sky and horizon to be found. So it is mainly viewers attention is mainly directed to the subjects. You can feel the grandeur of the mountain as it fills up the entire frame with no end in sight. The red hut is to add balance to the compostion. This shot was probably taken somewhere along the way from Geiranger and Kinsarvik. It was a desolate mountain pass where it seemed that we were the ONLY car along the pass….
