Dry leaves in Autumn. Torpa, Tranås, Sweden

I’ve come up to a little house in the country with my girlfriend’s parents. It’s a really nice place in the middle of the countryside 30 minutes from Tranås. Autumn has set in, and it feels like we’re now closer to Winter, as the memory of Summer fades from our minds and from the very landscape around us. The air is cold, a the land lies in a sort of drowsy half-sleep, covered in a sheet of reds, oranges, browns and greens.  Everything seems to be preparing for the winter ahead.

Basic basics: free series of basic digital photography lessons on youtube.

Many camera owners at some point think that they would like to learn more about photography. I have as well. I was browsing around for free digital photography lessons, and managed to find a set of 5 short and sweet digital photography lessons on youtube,  packed with great photography advice. You could call it an accelerated basic digital photography education course. Or something like that.

Part 1: Introduction The first digital photography lesson with some great general photography advice.

Part 5: People – Getting personal!

This is the set of 5 basic digital photography lessons. IT’s quite good for both total beginners and more advance users because (according to the guy who made them) they’re good photography advice for beginners and a good reminder for advanced photographers. Hope you like them! From my part I’ll try to take this photography advice to heart – hopefully my results will improve!

A little “Castle” close to Kungsbacka – Tjolöholms slott

Today we visited Tjolöholms slott, a late 19th Century “castle” (much more a large country mansion) close to Kungsbacka, in Halland, Sweden. The views of the sea and the forest in the early autumn afternoon were simply amazing. The slott lies overlooking a long formal lawn and garden which lead down to a lovely little beach. The sea is amazingly beautiful, dotted with many small, rocky islands covered with a few, now red, trees. If you ever are in the area (which is to the south of Gothenburg) I suggest you go and take a look at this wonderful place.

5 sleepy faces – not quite andy warhol

I had, perhaps, just woken up. Or I was really bored. Or both.
