Fight the tide, enter the cave and experience one of Asturias most amazing beaches.
For many people the term "Amazing beach" implies a big sandy beach, clear water and hopefully blue skies. Even though this sounds very tempting and relaxing, an "Amazing beach" for me is quite the opposite. I love dramatic seascapes, where big rocks or cliffs are randomly placed around the coast and the shore is filled with rocks and puddles. If you also like places like this, Playa de Campiecho, located in Asturias, Spain, may be paradise for you too.
For photographers the beach of Campiecho itself is not that famous, even tho there are some really nice photo opportunities on it. The most famous view is from inside "The Cave".
Entering the cave does not come without risk. It can only be entered during low tide, so be sure to plan your visit and know the tides. It is extremely important to keep an eye at the tide, as the water rises quickly and you may easily get stuck in the area. The cave is located around a small corner, so you don't have a good view of how high the water actually is. But don't let this scare you away from taking a look, just make sure that you have done your planning.
There is not much more I can say about the beach or the hours we spent around the cave, I think these images does a much better job describing!
I do have more pictures from this beach, as we walked around some of the less popular places. Since I'm just back from my trip these images are not processed yet, so I'll keep them for a new blog.

During my one week visit to the largest island of Greece I got to challenge myself and step out of my photographic comfort zone. Crete is a beautiful island with nice people and captivating sceneries that I had a great time capturing.
As many of you might have noticed, Instagram recently released their latest update Instagram Stories. My first reaction was rather negative, as it is a copy of Snapchat, but after giving it some thought I've come to the conclusion that this can be a great way to connect further with all of you.
During a recent workshop in southern Norway we stumbled across a big group of alpacas enjoying life. See the pictures (and some puns) here!
After spending one year in Santander, the northern coast of Spain has grown to be one of my favorite areas to photograph. Each time I visit I drive along the coast and occasionally into the mountains or forests. However, even though most locations are reachable within a few hours driving, Santander have many locations waiting to be photographed. Here's my top 3 photography locations in Santander.
Having a white Christmas has always been what awakes the Christmas spirit in me, even when we have celebrated in the tropics it has been an calming feeling to know that back in Norway the cold, fresh snow has covered the land. Even though I love summer and sun, the Norwegian winter has a special place in my heart.
During the last months I have been working for what feels like day and night on creating a website where you can improve your photography while being inspired by some of the greatest photographers on the planet, both well known and unknown.
Many of you might already have seen the video already, as it has gone viral the last few days. The video shows how six photographers all take portraits of the same guy, but they are each given a different story of the mans background. It's fascinating to see how different the results turned out, yet it makes a lot of sense if you give it some thought.
