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.

 

Dramatic coastline

Most of the Christmas and New Year vacation I was out in nature. Before Christmas I just didn’t have a chance to wander around in nature, because of my day job. So I had a lot of ground to cover.

The story about this image is that I was actually scouting for future images. But suddenly I had a stupid idea. I thought that this image would look nice if I stand near this cliff. That way I could give this image a depth, hopefully not a death. I don’t recommend doing this, especially if you know that this cliff is not stable. Thankfully nothing happened.

Paldiski pankrannik on täis potentsiaalselt häid pilte, kui vaid ilm kaasa mängiks. Paar väga head kohta leidsin, ehk õnnestub tulevikus ka ideed realiseerida.

Sellel pildil pildistasin ise ennast, et anda pildile sügavust ja näidata kui võimas pankrannik ikka on. Kahju, et ma ei ole varem seal kandis just tihti luurel käinud. Ideid on nüüd kuhjaga, ka öö fotograafia jaoks.

Händkakk, Ural Owl (Strix uralensis)

Perfect Christmas present.

I was wondering around in Soomaa nationalpark, when suddenly I saw this beautiful bird flying towards me and landing about 50m from me. It was just absolutly beautiful moment. I have seen Ural owl before. I was shooting milky way that night when Ural owl landed on my camera. So yeah, it has been my dream to photograph this bird in day light :)

I was photographyng this building when it landed on my camera.

Parim jõulukink minu jaoks on see kui saad pildistada lindu keda oled juba pikalt taga otsinud. Esimest korda nägin seda lindu paar aastat tagasi ühel mai kuu ööl kui ta maandus minu kaamera peal, tookord pildistasin linnuteed. See oli lihtsalt mega elamus.

Õnneks nüüd õnnestus mõned pildid ka saada. Soomaa rahvuspark on eriline koht. Sealt tuleb alati tagasi naerul näo ja heade piltidega. Head uut aastat Teile.

Merry Christmas my friends.

Soovin Teile ilusat jõuluaega ning edukaid kordaminekuid tuleval aastal!

Väike kokkuvõte minu maastiku piltidest 2017 aastal.

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.

The force

I’m really sorry that I haven’t uploaded images for very long time now. I will give my best to start exploring the nature again. It was just mad rush at work.

This image is from this weekend trip to Hiiumaa. We, Pentax fans, had winter days there. This little island is very beautiful. There is loads of potential to some nice images, especially the woods. I just have to go back as soon as possible :)

I managed to get some images that I like. I will upload these shortly.

Pildistamises on päris pikk paus sisse tulnud. Vabandan sellepärast. Hetkel tegelen sellega, et edaspidi oleks ka sügisest jõuludeni vaba aega vähe rohkem.

Esimene Pentaxi talvepäev toimus Hiiumaal, see nädalavahetus. Peab ütlema, et see oli ikka üks väga lahe üritus. Kui oled ka Pentaxi kasutaja siis ühine FB grupiga. Sarnaseid üritusi toimub ka edaspidi ja loodetavasti tihedamalt. Pole hullu kui oled algaja, aitame sind heameelega.

Hiiumaa loodus on lihtsalt fantastiline. Suhteliselt raske on ikka edaspidi siin harjumaa randades pildistada, kui oled korra sattunud Hiiumaale, Ristna neemele. Mega võimsad lained möllavad seal. Peab kuidagi organiseerima ennast sinna tagasi kui on 20+ m/s tuuled :)

Rebane, Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes)

Finally I have an image about fox. Last winter I spent a lot of time to try to photograph the fox, but I didn’t have any luck. Thankfully this weekend I managed to get one image, for real, only one image and the fox was gone :)

And we have a littlebit snow here, love it :)

Mõnus udune õhtu oli laupäeval. Drooni omanikud said kindlasti väga häid pilte.

Ma arvan, et viimasest korrast kui sai kaamera kotist välja võetud on möödas juba pea kuuaega. Hommikul tööle minnes ja õhtul koju tulles on pime. Fotograafia mõttes on hetkel ikka väga kehv aeg, vähemalt neil kes peavad tööl käima. Aga ei ole hullu, kaugel see kevadki enam on.

Winter where are you!?

If we are lucky then we might get colder weather about in two months. From childhood, I remember that the winters were really cold with lots of snow. Now there is only a lot of water. Rivers are really wide from these rainy days.

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 :)

Umbes kolm aastat olen seda lindu taga ajanud. Küll panin kodus varje püsti või käisin metsades teda otsimas. Näha õnnestus seda lindu küll, aga pilti ei õnnestunud teha. See lind on lihtsalt väga kiire. Pikalt ühe koha peal ei möluta.

Tänud Tarmo. Ikka väga hea supiköögi oled püsti pannud :)

Fern with roots

What a gorgeous scene. When I found this place I thought that another photographer was placed this branches around this fern. It is just too perfect to be real. Hopefully I can visit this place again when it is snowing.

See on tõenäoliselt üks huvitavamaid kohti mille mina olen leidnud metsast. Näeb välja liiga hea, et olla tõsi. Oksad oleks nagu paigutatud ümber sõnajala. Nüüd tuleb oodata paremaid tingimusi, et tagasi minna. Huvitav saab olema :)

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.

Abandoned

First thing what I saw was those two beautiful trees. I have been looking something like this for really long time, but when I walked closer then I saw this doghouse and next to it old foundation. It seems that whatever reason this home was abandoned, maybe because it locates in really harsh environment or because of urbanization. Every year this part of Estonia is flooded from heavy rain or because of meltwater. It is adventurous tourist destination, but a challenge for locals. Some places the waterlevel will rise even couple meters.

“Mahajäetud”

Sügisvärvid on nähtud, nüüd siis tuleb maastike pildistamise asemel kolida ümber metsadesse või panna kaamera ette teleobjektiiv, et pildistada linde/loomi. Päikeseloojanguid/tõuse vast nii pea ei õnnestu näha.

See pilt on juba suhteliselt lähedal sellele mida olen soovinud pikalt jäädvustada. Lähemale jõudes aga avastasin, et sellel asukohal on ka emotsionaalsem ajalugu.

Pildil on näha ka koerakuuti, kuid selle maltsa sees võis vundamendi jäänuste järgi enam vähem aimata milline see majapidamine välja võis näha.

Nüüd tuleb oodata paremaid tingimusi, et teha üks dramaatilisem pilt, mis on juba minu peas valmis.

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…

Seenelkäik.

Fallen

I love woodlands. But it is really hard to see these consequences of cutting woodlands. But there is one good thing about that. Citizens here in Estonia have started protest and demanding stricter rules for downgrading forests. I sincerely hope that something will be done.

There is another thing about that tree. I have been looking this tree for couple months now. The way I found that was really weird. It is littlebit hard to descraibe, but I was driving with car, when I suddenly thought that I have to stop the car, take my camera bag and walk to woodland. There was about 50m section of the trees and then this empty space with couple trees. And there this fallen tree was, laying down. I just sat there and looked at that fallen tree for quite a long time. It wasn’t the environment that I hoped to see that tree, but I will visit this place again. I don’t know why, but I want to go.

Sarnast pilti olen otsinud päris pikalt, kuid ei osanud arvata, et leian selle langenud puu vales keskkonnas. Ehk siis keset lageraie lanki. Kahjuks viimasel ajal on olnud ikka raske leida metsa, mis on puutumata inimtegevusest.

Northern lights

Northern lights season for me is started, finally. But it started quite strangly. The northern lights came basically from nowhere. We didn’t expect too see anything, so it was really nice surprise when we saw that light green started to appear from left side of this image. Sometimes wishes come true :) I really hope that this is just a beginning, but will see how much clear skyes we have.


Lõpuks nägime ka selle hooaja esimesed virmalised ära. Loodan, et see on alles algus.

Mysterious forest

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.

Üli võimsad ja kenad on ikka Šotimaa kosed, kahju, et tol hetkel kui seal olin, oli Šotimaa kohta ikka erakordselt ilus suvi. Üks poe müüja ütles, et neil oli juba terve nädala päike paistnud :) See tõttu oli vett natukene vähe, et pildistada koskesid täies hiilguses.

Nägin ka oma silmaga seda, et kui ühe öö sajab vihma siis hommikuks on jõed ikka päris ohtlikud. See oli tore kogemus mida Eestist ei ole võimalik saada, kuna mägesid ei ole.

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.

Alone in elements

Beautiful landscape in Scotland hills, but It was quite difficult to find something to photograph with this beautiful sunset. I didn’t plan anything for that day, but thakfully, at last moment I found this tree.

Actually it’s quite hard work to shoot nature images. You just never know when or if there will be something beautiful to photograph. Usually there isn’t. A lot of times I have deleted images when seeing these in bigger screen.

Üksi ilmastiku tingimustes.

Selle pildi saamine oli ikka paras vedamine. Viimasel hetkel leidsin selle puu, kuid enne seda tuli ikka korralikult sprintida Šotimaa mägedes raske seljakotiga. Nii mõnigi kord on päris keeruline see loodusfotograafia. Pildid mida me avaldama on küll ilusad ja värvilised, aga tegelikult mis toimub kaadri taga on päris tihti ikka väga pingelised.

Kasepuud on alla vandunud erosioonile. Päris ohtlik on ikka pankranniku servas pilte teha, eriti kui tead, et enamus kohtades on samblike all ainult tühjus. Kuid ikka tahaks kaamerat natukene ette poole nihutada, et saaks parema pildi. On see seda väärt? …ei.

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.

Udu invasioon.

Alles hiljuti reisin Šotimaale, et näha sellist momenti, kuid ei olnud udu invasiooni. See eest õnnestus mõned pildid teha nüüd Eestis. See ei ole drooni pilt, vaid ronisin laste liumäe otsa :) Mõnikord piisab ka sellest.

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.

Bright future ahead

Opposite to the latest news, nature is important. Take couple hours or even whole day to walk at beach or forest, conquer munro or maybe just nice picnic in the park.

Have a nice weekend my friends!

The View

Quite nice view from tent. I really hoped to photograph the cloud/fog invasion, but unfortunately this is the best image I managed to capture. So, lots of ideas for next trip to Scotland.

Päris kena vaade telgist. Üks peamisi põhjuseid miks tagasi läksin Šotimaale oli just udu invasiooni pildistamine. Seekord õnnestus midagi juba näha aga siiski natukene vähe. Ehk järgmine kord on rohkem õnne.

The Last Light

At Scotland, Dumfries.

I really miss Scotland. Today I already checked Ryanair airfare prices, but yeah, “thankfully” I can’t go. Day job interferes private life:)

The Arrival…

…of strangers from outer space, I thought, but thankfully not :) This evening was really special. I’ve never seen so dramatic sky in my life. Secretly, I really hoped to photograph exactly that kind of weather for as much days as possible, but about weather, ju just never know, what will next day be like….

Külalised avakosmosest :)

See õhtu oli eriline, pole kunagi varem nii dramaatilist taevast näinud. Üks lemmik piltidest sellest reisist, kuigi otsisin meeleheitlikul sobilikku kompositsiooni, sest ma ei olnud veel sihtkohta jõudnud.

 

I’m back

And alive, I mean, I feel like I am alive :) I really needed that kind of vacation. Although I have to give some blood samples because I found three ticks on my hands, so fingers crossed :)

The weather was really wierd, even village shopkeepers told that it is wierd that weather is so warm and blue skies. So weather wasn’t perfect for photographing, but hey, still better then rain right.

Now I have to do a lot of sorting and editing before I can upload images, but I’m pretty sure that I got couple images that i really like. So thank You Northern UK and Scotland for this stunning landscapes :)

One more thing, and that’s important, if You are looking place to stay at Manchester then I highly reccomend Gatley Homestay. Very lovely place to stay, perfect.

Have a nice weekend my friends!

Stargazing

Finally we had couple clear sky at night, but here is the thing, at summer we don’t see a lot of stars, because sun bearly goes down. Yesterday I could see milky way from 00:30-03:00 AM then the sunset glow started to appear. That’s a bummer, because the best part of the milky way is at summer :)

This is single exposure image, I tried to edit it as it was when I was out there.

Lõpuks oli selge öö ja reaalselt ka võimalus tegeleda öö fotograafiaga. Linnutee hooaeg hakkab vaikselt otsa saama kuna suht hilja läheb pimedaks ja väga vara hakkab tõusva päikese kuma tähti kustutama. Sellegi poolest üritan veel mõned korrad linnuteed pildistada enne jaanipäeva.

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 :)

Eelmise aasta kevade pilt Nõvalt. Ilus tormipilv, mis tõi kaasa üllatavalt korraliku lumekihi.
