MEP – BSR features City Hall panorama

MEP – BSR features City Hall panorama


One of my panorama photos is featuring on the front page of the website of the Model European Parliament – Baltic Sea Region Program (MEP-BSR).

The MEP Baltic Sea Region Program is a non-partisan leadership program for youth in Estonia, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Norway, Russia and Sweden. The aim of the MEP Baltic Sea Region program is to develop interest and skills in addressing high level international issues jointly among high-school students in the 10 countries around the Baltic Sea. The program is a training ground for future leaders and politicians.

The panorama photo of Stockholm’s City Hall was chosen to highlight the upcoming session of the MEP Baltic Sea Region Program in October 2014 which will be held in the capital of Sweden.

Hammarby Canal – new panorama photo

Hammarby Canal – new panorama photo

A new panorama photo has been added to the featured gallery “Panorama”. Click the image above to view the large version.

The photo was taken from Skanstulls bridge in southern Stockholm and shows Hammarby canal. The left side of the photo is overlooking south-east Södermalm with the Sofia Church as its highest point. On the right side of the photo a small part of northern Hammarbysjöstad is visible.

A Nikon D600 with a 24-70mm lens was used to shoot multiple images, which were stitched together in Adobe Photoshop.

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.

Stockholm’s City Hall by night II

This week conditions were much better in the city center around City Hall. As you might recall from my post two weeks ago it then was cloudy, I was late and the tower was not lit.

But this week I guess I was lucky and we experienced a very nice late-summer evening with a blue sky. I was in good time to set up my equipment and make test shots. On top of that all the top of the tower was in full light. Here is one of the results.

While I was taking images it struck me what a beautiful panorama view you have when you look from Riddarholmen towards City Hall. The view stretches all the way from Södermalm to the left, over the water following the bridge to Kungsholmen, than City Hall and the futuristic looking new World Trade Center in the background of the archipelago boats to the right.

I took a series of 5 images covering the whole panorama. Back home I used Adobe Photoshop’s photo-merge tool, which works fantastic in the latest version (CS5), to create a panorama photo. You can see the results from this weeks shoot at City Hall in my Sweden: Stockholm gallery. Obviously the panorama photo does not view well on screen as it it too small to get the full impact, but once I have printed it at 100x25cm it will look great.
