The Accidental Photographer

Welcome to my blog. The idea is to share some random photos and maybe some thoughts.

Light Trails

I haven't shot anything decent lately so here is an older shot from this July. It was shot on the way back to Helsinki from Hämeenlinna.

On friday I will be leaving to Lapland for a hike in the Kevo canyon. I promise to shoot at least a couple of decent images.

Row row row your boat

From time to time I think that I should shoot more in black and white because I like monochrome images a lot. I just don't seem to get my black and whites really stand out. No matter whatever I try to do with them they just turn out dull median grey. I've come to the conlusion that I am a colour photographer and the more the colour the better. Here goes one b&w anyway.

The above image is shot on the island of Jurmo which a really outstanding place. The image was originally shot in colour but I wanted to see how works in monochrome. Heavy vignetting added by Photoshop.

I have also posted a small gallery of photos from our sailing trip. You can see the gallery here. It is ok to leave comments.

Hanko by Sunset

Last week I was on holiday and we went sailing. It was fantastic we were really lucky with the weather as the sun was shining almost all the time. The above is a shot of Hanko skyline when we were approaching the harbour.
