So now a year has gone since I got my first serious camera. Serious in the sense of being too expensive, having more options and features than my needs, having a very large sensor and the possibility to change between different, also too expensive, lenses. And I actually never really bought it for taking pictures. I thought I would do video instead.
Cameras I’ve had a lot, mobiles and compact point and shoot. And I have taken photos all the time. But always as a second thought, never as a first aim. Always as a means to remember, never with the picture itself as the focus.
But then, music has always been my thing. Writing songs, lyrics, recording and producing. I love it but to work with music takes a lot of time, at least on the level where I think it’s fun and challenging.
Time that I have found hard to find in the last years. Work and family has taken a lot of the priority.
So enter landscape and nature photography which I found possible to slot into my every day schedule. And since I’m new to it there is always a challenge. I learn something new every time I pick up my camera. It’s all very much fun and I enjoy it a lot.
Here are some photos from last year that, for some reason or the other, meant the most to me (as perhaps opposed to being the best).
