Grisslehamn & Singö

Grisslehamn & Singö

The June 2011 wallpaper was based on a photo I took end of May on the east coast of Sweden near the village of Grisslehamn. I promised in that post to show some more photos from that trip. Here they are.

The above text layered image is based on the photo below. This photo was taken at 11pm in the harbor of Grisslehamn. I had just returned from my evening tour at the coast.

The harbor was just 100m from my pension. The photo is built from 3 individual images, stitched together using Adobe Photoshop’s photo-merge to get a slight panorama effect.

Earlier during that evening I shot some seaside photos of the waterfront. The coastline is very rocky near Grisslehamn.

The next evening I went to the island of Singö, just north of Grisslehamn. This is the location where the June 2011 wallpaper was taken. The below photo is a wider framed photo of the same island, Svartklubben with the lighthouse, with a rock formation in the foreground.

Evening Colors at Eriksö

As mentioned in my previous post I would post an image from my time at the south east coast around Stockholm.

While we were camping on the island Eriksö near Vaxholm, which is about a 30min drive north of Stockholm, we took an evening walk to capture the evening colors. We passed by the local boat clud when I captured the below image. Luckily there were no swimmers anymore and there was just a slight breeze so I could use the needed long exposure time.

This image was taken with a Nikon D300 and a Nikon AF-S DX 17-55mm lens @ 17mm; f/16.0 – 8sec – ISO200.
