Glimpses of Sunlight - and Dreams of a Tripod


Welcome back, sunlight and blue skies ... Such a pleasure after a week with rain, fog and grey skies! The sun peeked out Friday afternoon - so I biked by the lake, so see the setting sun, on my way home from work.




The weather is getting cold - the crispy, fresh air fills my lungs each morning as I step outside - the temperature may soon be under zero during the nighttime.

The sun is getting up at 8 am, and setting down at 4 pm ... That is my working hours and I am mostly inside ... So I'm cherishing the weekends, having the opportunity to be outside during daylight.

Light is so important, in many ways ... and especially with photography. I prefer taking the advantage of natural light when taking pictures, so I'm using each and every opportunity I get, to snap the daily photos with my iPhone.




Yet winter is a wonderful season for learning low light photography ... which is the reason why tripod for my DSLR is on my wish list. I have been reading lately some articles about slow shutter speed photography, and would really like to experiment more in that area. 

What would be important to consider when buying a tripod?
And furthermore - what to consider when photographing with a tripod ... Should I use a timer in order to behave sharpness when photographing with normal shutter speed?


- As you can read, I am thinking about entering into a new, unknown terrain!

 ... Wishing you a Happy Weekend with Glimpses of Sunlight,

Path of Peace


Through the heartfelt mercies of our God, 
God's Sunrise will break upon us,
showing us the way, one foot at a time, 
down the path of peace.

Luke 1:78 The Message



It Is Well by Terry MacAlmon


"Shalom is not just peace but flourishing
flourishing in all dimensions of our existence -
in our relations to God,
in our relation to our fellow human beings,
in our relation to ourselves,
in our relation to creation in general."

Nicholas P. Wolterstorff

In the Silence



My dear children, let’s not just talk about love; let’s practice real love. 
This is the only way we’ll know we’re living truly, living in God’s reality... 

For God is greater than our worried hearts 
and knows more about us than we do ourselves.

Lensbaby ML-10 Snapshots - Danish Parliament

Danish Parliament Backyard


Brooks Bike Seat - A nice one in leather


By the Horse Stables, The Danish Parliament

A Window by Dantes Place


Streetlight Reflection in a Puddle 


The Travellings Lens Project has arrived to Denmark ... I received the Lensbaby Sweet Spot Lens LM-10 for Mobile last Friday from Steffi from Germany.

I am slowly learning to find the sweet spot - my first images were rather blurry, but after a bit training the images are getting sharper and clearer. The Lensbaby Application for iPhone is surely a great help.

I will take the lens with me as I am biking in the city this week, so new Lensbaby images from Copenhagen are on their way soon...




... Sunshine to your week,

Nina

Walk with care




You taught me how to walk with care 
so my feet will not slip.

Silence speaks



Silence speaks when words can't.


:   :   :


This peaceful sunset made me stop by the city lakes, as I was biking home from work. I sat down and enjoyed the setting sun...

It is already time to say farewell to October ... The 10th month in my Photo A Day-year! Little did I know how well my word Unhurried would be connected to my daily photos ... 

These quiet moments outside have really ment a lot to me, given some space that has been good:
Space to think - and not to think, space to let my feet lead the way, space to feel the wind in my hair and mist on my cheek ... space to receive and give a smile ... space for joy and space for sorrow ...

I intend to keep on walking and taking these daily snapshots. A photo a day ... 

Here's my daily photos from October: 





Wishing you a peaceful weekend,

Nina

PS. Remember I told you about a photo shoot I did at the pretty home of my dear friend? You can see my pictures and get a glimpse of her Scandinavian homedecorating style here.
