Layers

Nice morning walk with beautiful sunrise. The view was just absolutly stunning. I think the mist add to the image, it creates hazy layers.

Reisi lõppfaasis oli juba suhteliselt raske ennast telgist ülesse ajada enne päikesetõusu, aga selline vaade ja värvid aitasid unustada meeletut väsimust. Pildil on mõnusad udused kihid.

Teinekord on sedasi, et peale aktiivset puhkust oleks vaja puhkust :)

Scotland, Glencoe

Oh boy, oh boy. I miss Scotland. I hapend to watch landscape vlog about Scotland. This vlog inspired me to re edit some older images from my 2016 trip and I found this one. This image is a littlebit soft, becouse I broke my lens, but the mood is there. I love it. If I can, then maybe I will go to Snowdonia. Probably in next autumn. Will see.

Juhtusin nägema Mads Peter Iversoni videot Šotimaast. See Youtube võib olla ikka väga kahjulik rahakotile. Nüüd ma tahan sinna tagasi minna. Aga esialgu piirdun vanade piltide üle vaatamisega. See pilt sai tehtud 2016 aastal Glencoe-s suht katkise objektiiviga, aga see meeleolu mida ma tundsin seal, on täitsa olemas selles pildis.

Suht tüüpiline ilm Šotimaa kohta, kuid ideaalne vaheldus päikeseloojangute või -tõusude taga ajamisele. Mitte, et me tookord oleks näinud mõnda neist. Kohalikud väitsid, et selline see ilm on neil ca 10 kuud aastas, meil siiski on rohkem päikest :)

Šotimaaga on üldse selline olukord minul, et tagasi ma lähen nagunii, kuna tookord kui ma seal olin siis tehnika mis mul kaasas oli, oli ikka vägagi kehvas seisus. Kuna mingi ime nipiga lagunes objektiiv fotokotis ära. Ei tea, võib-olla hakkas mägesid kartma. Seega, mul ei ole ühtegi sellist pilti mille üle oleksin tehnilise poole pealt rahul.

Kõige lihtsam viis kiusatusest loobuda on see kui lihtsalt alla anda ja minna uuesti :)

Frosty morning

Yess, the winter is coming. I love winter and I really love this image. The sunrise made this image. I have seen a lot of images where sunrise lighten mountain tops, but we don’t have mountains so I thought I should try same thing with trees.

Talv ei ole enam kaugel. Ehk tuleb see hooaeg lumisem kui tavaliselt. See pilt sai tehtud Soomaal, pühapäeva hommikul. Järjekordse suurvee ajal ei saanud Soomaad külastada kahjuks. Eks siis tuleb teiste fotograafide pilte imetleda.

Päris pikalt olen tahtnud sarnast pilti saada, kus päikesetõus valgustab puude latvu. Nüüd on see olemas koos härmatisega :)

Warm end…

…to my spring trip in UK. The last image before I had to go to airport. My next trip will take me to Finland lapland, but I might visit UK again in autumn. Maybe with my camper van that I am planning to build from Ford Transit Custom. Will see :)

Ilus lõpp kevadisele fototripile Inglismaal, Manchesteri lähistel. Pilt tehtud enne lennujaama minekut. Järgmiseks aastaks on tehtud juba suured plaanid, aga midagi kindlat veel rääkida ei julge. Kõik omal ajal :)

Perfect timing

I just couldn’t believe that at last I made right choice. I wanted to shoot sunset colors at sea, but when I was approaching to the roundabout I changed my mind and thought that I should visit my favorite oak tree. I really hoped that one day I will see rainbow over this oak.
When I was driving the rain got stronger by every kilometer. This was the first sign that perhaps there’s also a rainbow coming. There also was slight golden hour colors at horizon, so the sun was not blocked with clouds. I knew that I have to get as fast as possible near the oak tree, becouse rainbow will appear soon. And it did exactly the same time when I put my camera on a tripod. How cool is that :) Now I have this image, unbelieveble, well yes it is not perfect rainbow, but it is a good start :)

üle pika aja õnnestus langetada õige otsus. Tegelikult oli soov pildistada päikeseloojangut mereääres, aga viimasel hetkel mõtlesin ümber ja läksin hoopis oma lemmik tammepuu juurde.

Sinna sõites hakkas päris tugevalt vihma sadama, kuid samal ajal oli ka näha päikeseloojangu algust tähendavat kuldset valgust, ehk siis päike ei olnud blokeeritud pilvedega. Esimene mõte mis tekkis oli see, et lõpuks õnnestub vikerkaart pildistada ümber tamme puu. Kuid tuli kiirustada, sest väike sprint tuli ette võtta auto juurest tamme juurde. Vikerkaar tekkis täpselt siis kui asetasin kaamera statiivi peale, uskumatu :)Kuigi jah vikerkaar ei ole ideaalne, kuid hea algus seegi :)

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 ).

Epic Failure

We had the perfect thunderstorm this weekend, and I was at wrong place, again :)

I was in central Estonia, waiting, but the storm went up to islands ( Saaremaa and Hiiumaa) by the sea and from there it came to land. When I realised that the storm won’t come diagonally through Estonia, like usually, I started driving to Haapsalu. But it’s quite a long drive. I new that this is it for me, no images.

When I arrived to beach near Haapsalu I saw really beautiful doomsday looking cloud that was already very close to me, it was too late to take image. literally I was late by 10 min for getting really good image. And the wind was getting stronger and stronger. My only option was to start driving to Tallinn, so I have any chance to get image.

But well, we all know that It is not possible to overtake thunderstorm on highway, so I just pulled over and captured this image. This is the result for driving over 400 km. I hope I have more luck next year.

Loodusfotograafia on ikka stressirohke aeg-ajalt. Meeleheitlikult üritasin äikesetormist head pilti saada, kuid ebaõnnestusin täielikult. Head pilti küll ei saanud, kuid siiski oli üli lahe päev. Kilomeetreid kogunes üle 400 autoroolis, nägin meeletult palju pikselööke, pilve siseseid sähvatusi ja väga ilusat pagi pilve mille serva all siis see pilt õnnestus mälukaardile püüda.

Mõned kogemused jälle juures, et järgmine aasta uuesti üritada. Kannatust peab olema :)

Blue Sky

Beautiful dark ominous stormy clouds at Scotland hills. The foreground and the clouds are illuminated by sunset light. Lots of negative space, but I like it. This image would look nice at wall :)

Vahelduseks üks pilt Šotimaalt. Päikeseloojangu valgus muudab tormipilve ikka päris hirmuäratavaks. Kahjuks torm jäi tulemata, oleks saanud ikka väga huvitavaid dramaatilisi pilte.

Highlight

I’ve always wanted to capture that kind of image with wideangle lens from really low angle. I think this image is quite decent for first attempt. The tree is same as last image and again I had the privileeg to photograph quite dramatic light. I hope You also like this image.

Mis siin salata, väga hea koha olen ikka leidnud. Järjekordselt õnnestus sama tamme pildistada suhteliselt dramaatilise valgusega. Loodan, et ka Teile meeldib see versioon.

The fog is burning

Unbelievable experience is to witness that kind of moment. I love foggy mornings.

Uskumatu hommik Kiisal.

Hommikul kui sõitsin juba varem välja valitud koha poole siis olin enam kui kindel, et vist ei saagi pilti teha, udust polnud mingit jälge. Aga õnneks kui Sakust läbi sain siis oli näha, et Esko talu maad olid kaetud väga paksu uduga. Ehk siis lootus oli, et siiski on võimalus üks väga kena pilt teha. Üli mõnus oli vaadata kuidas see udu hakkas päikesetõusu ajal nagu “põlema”. Täiesti uskumatu kogemus oli seda koha peal ikka ise vaadata. Loodan, et see pilt tekitab ka Teis sarnaseid emotsioone. Ilusat nädala algust.

Morning Magic

Morning magic with chamomile flowers. These flowers are well known as herbal medicine. Probably everyones grandmother used to dry up these flowers to make nice warm tea with honey here in ex Soviet countries.

To bad that I’m not the morning person. The nature is just absolutely stunning at mornings, the fog and calmness with rising sun. Perfect way to start the morning.

Jube kahju, et ma ei ole hommiku inimene. Päris paljud väga head hetked jäävad nägemata kuna uni on lihtsalt nii hea :). Aga õnneks see nädalavahetus õnnestus hommikud veeta looduses ning oodata päikesetõusu. Ei pidanud pettuma, paks udu orgudes ja tõusev päike andsid ikka kuhjaga energiat, et üks töine töönädal üle elada. Soovitan ka Teil ohverdada mõned hommikud selle nimel :)

Lost in fog

Well, I wasn’t actually lost in fog, but the fog was really thick. I knew where this tree was, but because the thick fog, it took about 20 min to find it. And I parked my car about 200m from this tree :)

But the view was just absolutly stunning. This single tree, dandelions and glow after sunset immersed in fog.

First time when I saw this tree I knew that I have to come back when conditions are foggy, this image was ready in my head already. I love it when plan comes together :)

Kui ma esimest korda nägin seda puud, siis lubasin endale, et ei tule enne kaameraga tagasi kui on paks udu ja see udu pidi tulema enne kui niidetakse see põld ära. On ikka heameel küll, et varem tagasi ei läinud. Udu teeb sellest puust ja maastikust just sellise pildi, mis oli minul peas valmis juba esimesest kohtumisest. Kui vaid oleks ka edaspidi nii palju kannatust, siis saaks ikka oma hobi hoopis teisele tasemele viia :) Loodan, et ka Teile meeldib see pilt.

The Dark Side

More like intimate photography from Lake District National park @Ullswater. Rather than using wide angel lens I used my telephoto lens. And trying to photograph this little tree at the best light. It was quite difficult to capture the moment when clouds where at the right position, because the clouds moved really quickly. But yea, I’m really happy with that image.

Killuke Lake Districu looduspargi mäest ja üksikust puust. Fotogeeniliste üksikute puude paradiis on Inglismaa.

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.

Jäätunud kosk Türisalul. Teel mereäärde tuli teha valik mitme erineva koha vahel. Kuna Türisalus olen vähe pildistanud siis riskisin ja otsustasin ikka sinna minna. Olen tulemusega isegi rahul. Kas Teile ka meeldib?

Simplicity

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 :)

If You don’t know what is 4 x 5 film camera, then I recommend youtube vlog videos: BEN HORNE, ALAN BROCK

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 :)

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?

Moonlight waterfall

Mystical Forest

I am a little embarrassed because I was in the wrong place when the moon began to rise. So I basically gave up, but before I went to home I checked my favorite place, hoping to get some images. I’m glad that I went there. The fog was really thick and beautiful. This forest like receiving energy from that full moon. But yeah, moon is not that big about two hours after moon rise.

This is two exposure image. One for moon (105mm) and one for everything else (53mm).

Natukene piinlik. Läksin suur kuud vaatama, aga olin vales kohas :) Põhimõtteliselt olin loobunud, kuna kiiruga ei leidnud huvitavat maastikku kuu pildistamiseks. Õnneks enne koju minekut otsustasin korraks vaadata ka oma lemmik kohta (eelmine kuu pilt sai ka samas kohas tehtud) ning ei pidanud pettuma. Paks udu hakkas võimust võtma saades nagu energiat täiskuust. Väga kiiresti oli udu juba nii tihe, et kadusid silmapiirilt nii mets kui ka kuu ise. Mõnus kuid päris jahe õhtu.

Frozen Land

My favorite season, winter. I love it.

After storm

After stormy sea, but the waves where still quite high. I tried to be very careful, but at the end of the day I was still soaking wet. Also my camera was hit by couple big waves. Thankfully Pentax is weatherproof.


Peale tormi. Lained olid endiselt väga suured, mõnega õnnestus ka pihta saada, õnneks Pentaxi tehnika on ilmastikukindel.

Isle of Skye

That kind of view was near our campsite across the road. And that is the place where we found out why we have heard so much about midges. I must say, that this experience was pretty tough. But nevertheless, I wont to go back :)


Selline suurepärane vaade avanes meile telklaagrist. Isle of Skye on fantastiline. Ideaalne koht kus olla eemal tsivilisatsioonist, asustus on väga hõre. Ei ole internetti ega ka mobiililevi. Kuid lambaid on meeletult palju. Nii mõneski kohas oli päris hirmuäratav vaadata kuidas nad väga järsu mäe nõlvasid niitsid :)

Magical Glencoe

One of my favorite Picture.

Glencoe is unbelievably beautiful, too bad that we had lots of rain in these two days. Most places I couldn’t make any pictures, because my lens front glass was always covered with rain. That is the reason why I want to go back.

Üks minu lemmik pilt Šotimaalt. See kärestikuline jõgi asub Glencoe, Invercharnani lähistel.

The mist rises

This mist was nice surprise. I was waiting beaver, but beaver didn’t show up, so I started to move home after sunset. I did not reached very far when I saw that mist from river start to rise. About half an hour later all these fields where covered with fog. Drone owners would have been quite happy with that kind of landscape.


Kohaliku jõe ääres tahtsin pildistada kobrast, kuid just seekord kui olin selleks valmistunud ei tulnud ta kohale. Paar korda olen teda varem näinud seal mõne meetri kauguselt.
Kuid sellegi poolest oli ilus õhtu. Eemal oli udu tõusma hakanud, kuna peale päikeseloojangut läks järsult väga jahedaks. Üsna pea olid jõe ääres olevad põllud uduga kaetud.

Endless

What a view it was. Lovely.

Hazy Day

I went back to see how the Beaver lives. It seems that beaver has been busy to rise river water level. It was very wet around this small river. And the sunset wasn’t that beautiful as day before. It seems that I go shooting in wrong day, actually day too late.


Läksin tagasi, et vaadata kuidas kopral läheb. Tundub, et tal läheb hästi, kuna vee tase jões on oluliselt tõusnud. Kiired ajad tal :)

Field works is about to start

It was interesting evening. I was not alone, other side of this river was beaver. We waited when sun sets and hoped to see some beautiful colors. But beaver gave up. I think he had some better things to do :)


Huvitav õhtu oli. Umbes 4 meetri kaugusel, teisel pool jõge krõbistas okstega kobras. Päris jäme oks oli tema jaoks nagu kõrsik meie jaoks. Sedasi siis me ootasime päikeseloojangut, kuid ilmselt kogemustest kobras teadis, et suurt midagi pole tulemas, seega ta otsustas enne finaali lahkuda. Ju siis eemal toimus midagi huvitavamat.
Eile käisin vaatamas, kuidas kopral läheb. Peab mainima, et töiselt. Jõe veetase on ikka oluliselt tõusnud.

Time-Lapse, One Day

This is my third time-lapse video that I have made. I hope You like it. I am actually quite happy with it. Surely there is lot of places to improve, but ye, just make and learn :)

All these time-lapse clips are taken in Estonia, where I live. Estonia is small country, with beautyful nature.
Also I tried hyperlapse, thats quite interesting. Defenetly will do it again.

If you have any suggestions, please write in the comments to do differently.

Of course, sorry about this bad English:) Still learning.

I made this video with Pentax k5IIs, tamron 17-50mmF2.8 and Samyang 10mmF3.1 T-stop.
