Frost smoke from the sea

It was really cold morning on 5th of January and sea wasn’t frozen completely and as the air was cold than the sea heat rose from the sea and formed frost smoke. I shot this with my Nikon D7100 with 3 sec interval. Edited with LRTimelapse and Lightroom CC. Although it could have been a bit wider but in other hand it could have been much tighter too. Yes, it’s possible to crop those shots later as D7100 makes 6000 by 4000 resolution images and I only use 1920 by 1080.

22° halo.


I got my picture published by largest news site at!

Weather was great today. It has been long overdue for proper winter weather and when it finally happened, it was quite quick transformation from plus minus zero to -20°c and that has gave us a quite few chances to make a great photography. As I were leaving to work this morning I thought for a few seconds do I bother to take my camera with me or not. Luckily I decided to take the camera with me. Unfortunate was that I had missed to charge the extra battery and the one in the camera didn’t have that much charge on it. I managed to take a short time lapse with it, before cold weather killed the battery. As sun rose and started to shine it immediately showed sun halo and first I took photos with my iPhone 5 and you can imagine that those images weren’t that great. Luckily I had that almost drained extra battery with and I could take few photos of the halo and “steam” rising from the sea.


Once again that old jungle saying was true: Take the frigging camera with you.

Burning skyscape.

I have to say one great thing about being work where I am at the moment has many benefits, but huge one is that we do get to see most spectacular views. Sunrises and sunsets. This photo was taken ten minutes ago and it’s now gone. Sky is all blueish gray and no sunshine anymore and rain front is coming from the sea too.

Here’s a short video too:

Sunrise time lapse over Helsinki

It was supposed to rain this morning and actually it did start to rain when I left home to work. I drove to work instead of bicycling. If I had bicycled I wouldn’t had chance to shot this since it took me only 15 min to drive from home to work as it would have taken 35 min to bicyle, I would have been 15 min too late. I’m glad I did take the car.

Tube Time-lapse Times Two.

Well time flies when you are having good time? Well, not exactly good times but been busy. I’ve been shooting time-lapse videos with GoPro Hero 3 White Edition and it’s pretty simple and doesn’t require too much of your time. Just set it up and press record. Afterwards insert cam or memory card on the computer and GoPro Studio takes care almost everything. Few clicks and it converting and exporting finished file on your computer. And after you only have to import it to web, in my case to Youtube. Here are couple of new time-lapses:

In both interval was set to 1 sec. I let the GoPro roll until it run out of power. Usually it lasted around 3-4 hours. Not bad.
