2016 has in many ways been a memorable year. Here's a collection of my 16 favorite images captured throughout the year.
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.
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.
Laatefoss is one of these locations I returned to because I could not get enough of it. It's located right outside of Odda, about a 6 hours drive from my home - and I've now spent two sunrises at this unique waterfall. What shocked me was how much the scenery changed in less than two months!
Last year I discovered the work of Juan Pablo de Miguel. It didn't take me long before I fell in love with his work and I was honoured when my portfolio was featured alongside his in the recent Camerapixio magazine.
As I love exploring, I often find myself enjoying beautiful scenery. Sometimes it's close to home, other times it's on the other side of the globe. My camera is always packed and ready for use, but I don't always take it out of the back. Why? Just as with people, every place is unique. Just as with people, not all places look as beautiful on an image as they are in reality.
Every now and then I share the work of an artist that inspires me. the photographers are both amateurs and professional, and there is no criteria besides that the artists work is inspiring. Please link to any photographer that inspires you, and maybe this artist will be featured next time.
After spending the morning photographing the areas around Kleifarvatn on Iceland, it was time to head back to Reykjavik where we were meeting family. Even tho it's hard to get lost on these roads, as there are very few exits, I decided to plot the address into our GPS. After less then 10 minutes driving, the GPS told me to make a right turn. I was certain that this was wrong, as it made no sense at all to turn this early, when I knew the main road was at least another 15 minutes away. However we decided to take this road and see where it would take us. We didn't come far before we met a roadblock and had to turn around.
