Back from Norway

I’m back from Norway. This trip was exactly like I thought it would be. Truly amazing landscapes, wonderful people and great food. And of course, really expencive country.
I knew that there will rain a lot If I’m going to Norway in august. And it did. Again I had to buy new clothes, like in Scotland, becouse the other ones didn’t dry fast enough. Even with bad weather, the mountain areas look really beautiful.
I tried to take climb couple mountains, but it was to dangereos for me, in Estonia we don’t have single mountains. The rain made rocks and grass really slippery. And 25 kg back-bag didn’t help also :)
Probably I will go back next year, but in june or july. Will see.
I drove 5200 km, and the best light that I saw was in Estonia after departure from harbour, but it doesn’t matter. The experience and the memories are the most important ones.

I got about ten images that I like. I will publishe these shortly.

Nüüd siis tagasi Norrast. 5200 km hiljem õnnestus näha ka üli ilusat päikeseloojangut, Paldiskis. Aga ei ole hullu. Kogemused, mälestused, mis reisimisel tekivad on olulisemad kui pildid. Mis sest, et just piltide pärast Norra läksin.

Üli vinge ja -kallis riik. Vaated on mega ilusad. Väiksed külad mägede vahel, pikad tunnelid ja praamid. Kui võimalik siis kindlasti soovitan minna, välja arvatud augustis, siis enamasti sajab vihma mägistes piirkondades. Sedasi on minul läinud senimaani.

Võimalusel järgmine aasta lähen tagasi. Kuid ei läbi nii pikka vahemaad enam, vaid viibin väiksemal ala.

Mis piltidesse puutub siis vast kümme pilti ikka sain, eks jupp haaval panen need kodulehele ja siia fb lehele ülesse.

Foggy

I love scenes like these. Beautiful foggy morning.

Kaibaldi liivik

astrophotography

One of the weirdest places in Hiiumaa. In the middle of the island lies a sandy area. It looks like typical Estonian coastal line, but the sea is far away. 

The Hiiumaa is least lightpolluted area in Estonia, so this island is really good for astrophotography.

Pilt on tehtud Hiiumaal kaibaldi liivikul aprillikuus. Hiiumaa on Eestis üks parimaid kohti linnutee pildistamiseks, kuna seal on valgusreostust kõige vähem. Tähed on seal eriti kirkad, kui võrrelda mandri Eestiga. Kahjuks nüüdseks on  öötaevas liiga hele, sest päevad on pikad. Eks tuleb linnutee pildistamisega oodata ja minna järgmine aasta tagasi, sest siis on linnutee kõige ilusam.

Standout

I’m continuing my journey in woodland photography. When this image is published I am actually on my way to Southern-Estonia. I’m planning to hike three days. I have big hopes for that trip. Hopefully I will get some nice images from forests.

Kui see pilt on avaldatud siin siis mina olen tegelikult juba teel Lõuna-Eestisse, kolme päevasele matkale. Lähen otsima metsasid kus oleks võimalik sarnaseid pilte teha nagu selles postituses. Lootused on kõrged, eks näha ole, mis mind seal ees ootab. Loodan, et minu 30 kg seljakott ei hävita motivatsiooni, mis praegu on laes kui seda juttu siia kirjutan :)

Photopoint oli nii lahke, et pakkis kaasa ka Pentaxi uue täiskaadri, K-1 mark II ja D FA 24-70mm F2.8 objektiivi. Suured lootused panen just öö fotograafiale, sest selles vallas peaks see kaamera palju parem olema kui minu praegune esimene versioon, Pentax K-1. Samuti on parem ka autofookus, ehk õnnestub ka jäälindu pildistada.

Kaadritaguseid pilte postitan instagrami kontole http://www.instagram.com/urmop

The light

This year I have learned that patience is the key to success, it’s logical, but I used to walk around until the light was good. Now I first search the composition and then I will wait the light.

For this image to happen I waited about two hours in -15C weather. It was quite brutal, although this image doesn’t show it. But the result is quite okey.

Teinekord juhtub ka sedasi, et kompositsioon on paigas aga õiget valgust tuleb oodata mitu tundi. Kuigi, nüüd suurelt seda pilti vaadates oleks tulnud teha ikkagi korrektuure kompositsioonis.

Blog birthday

Today my blog got 6 years old :) When I purchased my first camera I really wanted to have a web page, although I knew that it would be quite hard to gaine traffic here. For a lot of people the Facebook is so called life :)

I just wanted to let you know that without You, I probably wouldn’t have had that kind of motivation to explore nature so often. My main goal is just to show You Estonian better side, the nature. I really appreciate all your likes and comments. As always constructive criticism is more than welcome, this is shortcut to improve my images.

Thank You and have a nice weekend :)

This image is self portrait, single exposure.


Täna on minu blogil sünnipäev. Juba kuue aastane. Ilusat nädalavahetust Teile :)

Vahepeal ausalt tüdinesin ära päikeseloojangu piltidest, aga kuna viimasel ajal on neid ikka väga vähe jagatud siis seekord tundsin ikka suurt rõõmu küll kui lõpuks õnnestus esireast vaadata kuidas pilt iga minutiga paremaks muutub. Kolmapäevane pilt on samuti loojang, aga hoopis teistes toonides :)

Chaos in woods

This monday we where at eagles hide with my friend. We sat there for 13 hours at freezing temperatures. We where hopeing to photograph eagles, but unfortunatly we didn’t have any luck. We saw eagles up on trees, but they didn’t land. Maybe next time we will have more luck. There where lots of ravens though.

Sõber Tarmoga oli plaan oma pildikogusid täiendada “Looduse aasta foto” piltidega :) aga mingil põhjusel algaja õnn seekord ei toiminud. 13 tundi talvel ilma kütteta onnis istuda oli paras väljakutse. Aga täitsa tehtav, ei nurise üldse. Viimastel tundidel jõudsime järeldusele, et see oleks ikka pagana hea kui saaks kunagi loodusfotode tegemisest piisavalt sissetulekut, et hobi ja töö ühendada.

Tagasi teema juurde. Kotkad istusid vaikselt kuuskede otsas ja kihistasid peenikest naeru. Ilmselt arvasid, et toredad koduloomad on toodud istuma sellesse väiksesse kuuti. Kuid meie olime vaprad ja ikka lootsime, et ehk õnn siiski saabub ja saame kasvõi mõned pildid. Sai ka nalja visatud, et oleks pidanud sihvkad ikka kaasa võtma :) Ehk järgmine kord on rohkem õnne, loodetavasti juba järgmine kuu. Sest tagasi tahaks küll minna.

Kui ka Teie soovite varjes kotkaid jälgida/pildistada siis leiate kontaktid sellelt aadressilt http://www.faunaarena.com Tegelikult on seal palju kotkaid, mõned päevad varem oli 16 tk.

Wintery

How about that. The joy I had when I saw sun :) I know it sounds weird, but I was so happy. The temp was about -10c, but when the sun came out it was so farm. The february should give us more light, so I really hope that I can find another images soon. Stay tuned :)

Hakkab juba talve moodi minema. Isegi päike tuli lõpuks välja. Nagu öeldakse: Siit on hea edasi minna :)

Scouting

I just wanted to let You know that I haven’t giving up. The weather is just grey and flat. It is not inspirening to take images at moment. I can still do some scouting though. Maybe we can see the light finally. Northern hemisphare pleasures.

 

MS Estonia memorial

Children’s memorial who were victims in the MS Estonia ship disaster. 

The bronze bell, a ship soul, starts ringing by itself in a strong wind. It brings like a message from the sea…

I remember this day clearly when this accident happened, there were no acquaintances who was left untouched by this disaster.

Birds through lens

After 3.5 months, my telephoto lens from guarantee maintenance is back home. This lens had a long trip, Estonia-Germany-Japan-Estonia.
It was so good to photograph birds again. I have said it before, but my interest to nature photography started from photographing birds. Can’t wait to go again. I hope I made justice.
There is 8 images. I hope you see these nicely. My last theme had some issues if there where more than one image.

Lõpuks sain teleobjektiivi garantiiremondist kätte, tervelt 3.5 kuud võttis aega. Aga tundub, et see oli seda väärt. Objektiiv on nats teravam küll. Edaspidi maastikupildid on plaan B :) Kuid kui ilma on siis ikka võtan ka lainurga kotist välja.

The Morning

Yesterday I did a small camping trip near a beautiful lake. Main reason I went to camping was to photograph falling stars (Persicides). But, secretly I hoped that maybe I might see some special moments when I wake up. I really hoped that this lake is covered with fog, and it was :)
Bad sleep was forgotten instantly ( wild animals were too curious ). And lots of energy was recovered to go to work. I might do that again.

Eile hommikul telgist välja kobides ei oleks uskunud, et selline vaade tervitab mind. Kuigi ma sisimas lootsin, et ehk on udu järve peal. Kehvasti magatud öö oli kohe unustatud ( erinevad metsloomad olid uudishimulikud ).

Harmony

I really love images like this. There is a saying “The eye is resting” for things that are peaceful, harmony or just beautiful. I have stared this image for two weeks now, but I couldn’t decide whitch way to go with this image. I think that black and white is the one. I hope you also like this image.
I hope that this weekend our outdoor kitchen, resting area will be ready and I can start shooting some images again. I haven’t shoot any image for two weeks already. I have this feeling that something is missing. So yeah, can’t wait to take my photo gear to natuure again.

Must valged pildid ei ole eriti populaarsed, aga aeg ajalt on tore lasta silmadel puhata värvi kirevates maastikuvaadetest. Järjekordselt tuleb tänada udu invasiooni, tänu millele oli see hetk huvitav koos pilvede saabumisega. Natukene isegi harmooniline.
Kaks noort kasepuud seisavad vapralt tumedate pilvede saabumisele vastu, mitte, et neil oleks võimalust põgeneda…eks aegajalt tuleb ka meil seista vastu sarnastele momentidele, metafoorilises mõttes.

Spring storm

Spring storm from last year. One of my favorite beach.

That’s a last time I saw that kind of beautiful weather formation. This weekend there is a slight chance that we can trace some thunderstorms, but there is one problem, I don’t have a car any more, I have only bicycle :) Hopes are not exactly high :)

Limestone cliff details

Recently I have watched photography related videos about canyons. Here we don’t have canyons, Estonia is flat country, but we have limestone cliff. Thanks to these videos I was really motivated to photograph something similar. I know it is not even close, but still I really enjoyed these early mornings by myself ,figuring out compositions etc. Similar images would look much nicer with early sunrise colors. Some ideas remained for the next time.
But yeah, I would love to travel to Utah, Zion National Park in autumn.

This picture is 10 images focus stack, so lots of details.

Ka päikesetõusu ajal saab huvitavaid värve mereääres pildile püüda. Kuigi järjest raskemaks läheb, sest päike tõuseb ikka suhteliselt vara juba. Päris huvitavad on ka need punased pritsmed. On mida järgmine kord oodata või otsida.

Afterglow

Sorry for not posting images quite a long time. I’m busy preparing my Scotland trip. Still lot to do, but can’t wait to go already :)

Story about this image is short. We where waiting auroras at beach, but unfortunately activity dropped when sun was going down. But the afterglow was really nice. And through luck I managed to photograph Iridium flash, you can see it at left side corner. Small, but still cool :)

Tahtsime virmalisi pildistada, aga kahjuks aktiivsus langes sama kiiresti kui päike. Sellegi poolest väga mõnus õhtu mereääres. Õrnalt on näha ka Iridiumi satelliidi sähvatust üleval vasakus nurgas.

Edit: It is funny how the scheduled post just doesn’t work. Couple days ago I was sure that spring is here, but today actually it is quite cold and snowy outside. So, who knows how long this winter lasts.

Viimased talve pildid tundub, ilmad on ikka väga kevade moodi juba.

Edit: See on ikka suht naljakas, kuidas etteplaneeritud postitused ei tööta. Paar päeva tagasi olin kindel, et kevad on käes, aga hetkel aknast välja vaadates on nagu talve küll veel :)

Dipper, Vesipapp (Cinclus cinclus)

 

This post contains 2 images and short video.

Dipper is funny bird and one of the few ones who can dive and use wings under water, this bird loves cold water. I had the change to watch this bird in action for about 6 hour in two days. I would love to be there more, but as I say some times, day job interferes privacy life :)

I discovered that three Dippers are living in about one kilometers section of river. They know their territory. And each one of them are different. One is grumpy, second anxious and third is calm :) So yea, good find near home. When this post is published them I’m actually back there, hiding myself for hoping to see Kingfisher and some Dippers:)

This is probably one of the places where I will put up my bird hide, because I saw Kingfiser there. Kingfisher is quite rare here in Estonia, especially in winter, usually they migrate to south. It is estimated that here is from march to oktober about 50-300 nesting couple. This is third year where I’m trying to photograph this bird. So decent challenge :)


Tasub ikka aeg ajalt kolada lähiümbruse jõgede ääres. Õnnestus ka jäälindu näha, eks edaspidi tuleb palju aega veeta seal kui varje valmis saab :)

Long-tailed Tit, Sabatihane (Aegithalos caudatus)

Little snowball is doing some push ups :)

Whole weekend I spent to search wild animal trails, ecpecially Fox trails, but didn’t have any luck. But at least I had the opportunity to spend couple minutes with these little birds, there where about fifteen birds. In winter these birds stick together for safety, also they find food easier this way.

Viimasel ajal on ikka päris tihti juhtunud, et satun kokku nende väikeste lindudega. Eemalt oli juba kuulda kuidas suure kisa saatel lähenevad :)

Tavaliselt on need parved jäänud 15 kuni 20 linnu kanti. Loodan ka edaspidi sattuda nendega kokku kui looduses uitan.

Great tit, Rasvatihane (Parus major)

Fun day in my bird hide that is located in my garden, but too bad that there weren’t that many different species.
Tomorrow is Estonia birthday, 99 years old. It means that we have long weekend. So I think I will celebrate this birthday in my bird hide :) Maybe I have the opportunity to see other birds also.

Frozen waterfall

Beautiful walk at Northern Estonia coastline. About this place, I have a lot of images ready in my head when I can start using my large format film camera :) If I can be that patient of course, usually I am not, so probably I will go there with my Pentax dslr, for scouting of course :)
The start of large format film camera building has changed me a bit. Now I always look details, that intimate images when I am in nature. I didn’t used to do that before. So yea, can’t wait to start using it.

Follow the path

The sunset was happening actually to my right, but I couldn’t make image because there where a lot of airplane trails. I really love bogs, but some how I don’t have a lot of images from bogs. Propably I should visit more these gorgeous places.

The sequel to the previous post. Beautiful frosty morning. The reason why I love winter, but very rarely we can witness that kind of view.

I have two hobbies. One is nature photography and second is carpenter. I’m really excited to start building my self a 4 x 5 large format film camera. This camera would be perfect for these minimalistic landscape images. Hopefully I can start testing this camera in summer, because I want to master it in autumn :)

Midagi lihtsat. Järg eelmisele postitusele, pilt on tehtud hommikul. Kahju, et kõik see sai otsa jälle. Ega pikka pidu nagunii poleks olnud, linnud ka juba laulavad kevade laulu. Las siis kevad tulla, selline talv ei paku eriti huvi :)

Moonlight Wonderland

I couldn’t decide which image I should publish, so I uploaded all four images. If you are watching this post with smartphone in wordpress reader then you probably see only one image. I recommend to type in hetkedloodusest.com
I really wanted to photograph the blood moon, but about half an hour before it started it actually ended. Because the cloud inversion. I hope next time I have more luck.
About me and my hobi, nature photography. When I was on the field waiting blood moon(about 3 am), all my co-workers enjoyed good time in spa hotel. There are times, when I think about, why I do this. I mean, I had the chance to enjoy good time with company costs, but I decided to be outside with -20C temperature and waiting blood moon…and I wasn’t alone I’m pretty sure that I saw a wolf there. Pretty scary…but I really like these images, so conclusion is that it is worth it :)

Rakvere pakub ikka väga ilusaid vaateid. Soov oli verekuud pildistada, kuid pool tundi enne selle algust ilmusid pilved välja. Ehk on järgmine kord rohkem õnne.

At The Edge

Something different. I usually don’t make bw images, but at that night ( this monday) there where no colors due to lack of northern lights.
The snow is very bright because the almost full moon behind me.

One more thing. I’m really excited to start planning my photo trip to UK, again. Really beautiful country. This time I’m planning to visit Lake District National Park, Galloway Forest Park and of course Glencoe. So yeah, a lot to study and some shopping to do to upgrade my camping gear :)

If you know some beautiful places on this route. Feel free to share in comments. One more thing about Galloway Forest Park. Does some one know when the bluebells are blossoming? I think I will be in Galloway early may.

Ei anna alla. Käin ikka piilumas mereääres, et kas virmalisi näeb või mitte. Kuna pilt on must valge siis järelikult ei ole õnnestunud öösel värve näha. Aga siiski, päris mõnus on hulkuda üksinda mereääres, Kaldast on võimalik ca 50m kaugusel kõndida, kuna vett ei ole. Järgmisest nädalast läheb pilve, eks siis tulevad ka virmalised.

Starry Night

Virmalistega on see hooaeg ikka väga kehvasti. Kui on virmalised siis on taevas pilves või siis vastupidi. Vähemalt sai harjutada linnutee pildistamist. Meeldiv õhtu sellegi poolest :)

Icy Atmosphere

Patience in photography.
I think it’s now third year that I have visited this little forest near my parents home, but I have never done an image there. There where always something missing. I think not this time.
I was surprised that autumn leaves have still quite vibrant colors. But yeah, it is quite weird to photograph autumn colors in winter :)
For the second day in a row, here have fallen icy rain. All the trees are covered with quite thick ice. It is really beautiful to watch.

Kannatlikkus fotograafias on oluline. Kolm aastat olen käinud aeg ajalt selles metsatukas, lootuses pilti teha , kuid alati on midagi puudu olnud. Ma usun, et seekord kõik klappis. Sügisel langenud lehed on endiselt ilusad värvilised ja nädalavahetusel sadanud jäävihm tekitas sellise mõnusalt jaheda atmosfääri. Kuid siiski ei olnud lihtne kompositsiooni paika saada. Päris pikalt ikka jalutasin statiivi ja kaameraga ümber selle puu :) Lõpuks otsustasin sellise võtte kasuks.

Late autumn colors

It is a wonderful feeling when everything that you hoped unfold in front of you. Magical, especially because these things doesn’t happen often. I was really happy when I saw that the rising sun started to lighten this small tree. I made 5 images and the light was gone, it went so quickly. I hope that the leaves don’t fall any time soon, because I would like to capture one more image, with snow.

Aeg ajalt juhtub ka imesid. Pilt ei ole tehtud sügisel, vaid eelmisel nädalavahetusel.

Varem välja vaadatud koht õigustas ennast igati. Samuti tegi päike õnneks koostööd. Kui vaid lehed püsiksid ilusasti puu küljes. Tahaks ühte pilti veel koos lumega.

Icy road to loneliness

Well this is quite nice island for campng :)

From this picture it looks like we have decent winter, but actually it is probably the worst winter that I remember. That’s sad, because I like cold weather. Most normal persons are travelling to someplace warmer when here is quite gray weather, it seems that I have to travel to Norway or Lapland in winter to see snow :)

Jäine teekond üksikule saarele. Seal oleks telkida täitsa tore. Pilti vaadates jääb mulje nagu oleks meil korralik talv. Kahju, et reaalsus on midagi muud.

Different

I spent whole day in forest, the purpose of this was that I want to make more woodland images, My hopes where high, but this image is only one that catched my eye and it is not even image about forest :) So yeah, now I know why people are saying that woodland images are one of the most difficult theme.

After sunset

Well it is not over when it is over.

After watching sunset I walked back to carpark. I was sure that this is it for today. No more images, but I was really surprised what I saw next. The moonrise at the same time when the sun was going down, and this beautiful pink glow. Composition is perfect (I think), different layers and tones. After watching images that I made that day, this was the only one that I didn’t delete.

Järjekordne õppetund. Ei tasu alla anda kui päike on loojunud. Huvitavaid hetki võib ka hämaras tekkida. Ning nii ka läks seekord. Mul oli täiesti meelest läinud, et kuu tõuseb suht samal ajal kui päike loojub. Pildi mõttes oli parem hetk juba möödas aga siiski, see oli ainus pilt mis jäi tollest päevast alles. Minule väga meeldib. Kas Teile ka?

Winter scenery

Finally I had the chance to watch colors in sky and winter has also arrived.

Lõpuks õnnestus värve näha taevas, ning üle väga pika aja sai ka maastiku pilti teha. Ülimõnus õhtupoolik Lohusalus.

Ohakalind, Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis)

Northern Hemisphere parrot :)


Põhjapoolkera papagoi :)

Sabatihane, Long-tailed Tit (Aegithalos caudatus)

Little snowball.

Well, it’s been awhile since I wanted to photograph this bird. Today I managed to do so, but it’s not over yet, now I want a good quality image of this bird. That’s a real challenge.


Pikka aega olen soovinud pildistada Sabatihast, ning täna ka lõpuks õnnestus. Kirss tordil oli paksult lumine mets kuhu see väike lind sobis ideaalselt. Minu soovitus: Kui lähete jalutama kas või tuttavatele radadele siis tasub ikka kaamera kaasa võtta, kunagi ei või teada mis hetke tunnistajaks satute.

Sunset colors

Winter has arrived :) The golden rule with sunset or sunrise is that You should look back. I really like these colors.

Have a nice weekend.

Päikeseloojangu ja päikesetõusu kuldne reegel on see, et tuleks vaadata ka selja taha. Mind köitsid need värvid, mida tekitas päikeseloojang. Loodan, et ka Teile meeldib :)

Ilusat jätkuvat nädalavahetust.

Põldvarblane, Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus)

One of the most common birds in Estonia, but rarely gets the chance to show off in front of the cameras. So I really wanted to photograph this bird. And he enjoyed it :)


Päris mitu päeva olen juba mõelnud, et tahaks varblast pildistada, kuna ei näe pilte temast just ülearu tihti. Kuid üllatuseks oli see, et too varblane hakkas ennast sirutama sedasi :) Pole varem sellist etteastet näinud :) Väga lõbus oli meil.

Vesipapp, Dipper (Cinclus cinclus)

Finally I found the Dipper. It was really funny to watch how this bird swam in the stream. It almost seemed like he enjoyed it, but actually he was looking something to eat.
Almost freezing water is no problem for him.


Vesipapp omas keskkonnas. Kauge külaline tuli Eesti talvituma, kuna siin on soojem, parem kliima :)
