Stockholm Sunset

Filed under: — site admin @ 8:17 am

Sunset in Stockholm
This is a picture that just happened - I saw the sky turn red and the silhouette of the iron Spire of Riddarholm Church, so I walked over the next bridge and shot this.
I then tried to improve on the shot by using the “Katarina Hissen” (an elevator with a spectacular view) to a viewing platform, but it was not possible to get the setting sun directly behind the church.

Sunset over the Ponte 25 de Abril, seen from Cascilhas
A cheap and entertaining way to see Lisbon from another angle is to take the ferry to Cacilhas.
Here I was lucky enough to see quite an impressive sky over the “Ponte 25 de Abril” bridge just before sunset.

Ayers Rock in the evening. It is amazing how the colours change in the course of a day.
This is due to reflecting particles in the rock itself.

Sunrise over rice paddies

Filed under: — site admin @ 4:48 am


It is a long night trip with the train between Bangkok and Koh Samui, but quite comfortable. When I woke in the early morning, a while before reaching Suratthani, I was amazed to see this view of a sunrise over rice paddies.

Sunset in the Andes, Chile
Well, actually I wanted to shoot the sunset, but then thought better of it when I looked at the magical glow of the sun on the mountain peaks.
This is a new scan of one of many shots on the occasion.
