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 :)

Icy

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.

This image is from last year.

Kui hästi läheb siis ehk õnnestub juba paari kuu pärast merejääl pilte teha, seni tuleb vaadata eelmise aasta pilte.

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.

Seascape season

Seascape season for me is about to begin. I love stormi seas and the drama that “bad” weather provide. I really want to capture couple images that are ready in my head. But the sea has to be really rough. Will see, I think this image is a good start or exercise for the mood that I want to capture.

Kui Eesti parim maastiku fotograaf Andrei Reinol suudab oskuslikult ära kasutada merel mõõna perioode siis minul kui hobifotograafil on ikka päris raske pilti “näha” kui merel ei ole suuri laineid. Ei teki ühtegi head ideed kui on tavamõistes ilus rannailm. Selle pildi meeleolu on sarnane pildile, mis kummitab mind juba pikemat aega, aga meri on liiga “lahja”

Muinastulede ööl sai luurel käidud. Võib öelda, et sügis on juba käes, ilmad on karmimad, ehk siis minu ranna ilmad ei ole enam kaugel :)

Birch trees

Birch trees from decayed coastal land. Erosion here in northern Estonia is quite rapid. With bigger storms it is quite dangerous to walk near limestone cliff, but with calm weather you can find quite nice compositions.

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.

Ilusad tuule ja mõõna mustrid.

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!

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.

Morning colors

Morning colors at rocky beach. I really love sunrise colors more than sunset. Sunrise is more like hazy, subtle, elegant and usually pink. And 99% of time, I’m the only one out there :)

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.

Rändrahnud, kuum teema. Kuid ilma nendeta ei kujutaks ette mere äärseid alasid.

Colors at night

Yess, finally we had clear skys and some Aurora borealis :) It was really bad season so far, when there where northern lights then the sky was overcast usually. So I hope this is start for an interesting night photography season.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Stormy weather

Weather forecast warned about strong winds, cat 1. So I thought it will be beautiful day to walk at beach, I like that kind of weather. I must say, that the winds was really strong and it was a really hard to capture images :) So sorry about that littlebit blurry image. This image will show quite well what kind of weather we have right now from autumn. It is almost black and white image, but yea, hope to see some colors as soon as possible :)

Tormise ilmaga on ikka hea jalutada mereääres, tavaliselt olen üksinda olnud, pole teisi “hullu” näinud :) See pilt illustreerib suht hästi viimase aja ilmastikuolusid. Peaaegu, et must valge pilt. Tahaks värve küll juba näha. Aga oleksin õnnelik ka lume üle :)

Beautiful Estonian coastline. If sunset will not happen then long exposure might give some interesting shots :)

Eesti rannad on ikka ilusad. Seda pihlakat nägin juba mitu nädalat tagasi. Tookord ma ei teinud pilti, kuna loojang ei sobinud. Seekord minu meelest toimib väga hästi.

Veider, aga minul oli väga hea meel kui see ootamatu laine tabas mind ja minu kaamerat. Ilmselt sellepärast, mida ma hiljem kaamera ekraani pealt nägin :) Nüüd näete ka Teie.

The Cross

I wonder, Is there treasure under this cross. Should I go digging :)

Relaxing at the beach

My way to relax after working. Have a nice weekend to you my friends.


Minu viis lõõgastuda peale tööpäeva. Ilusat nädalavahetust Teile.

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.

The Neist Point, Isle of Skye

Rocky Beach

Discovering new places. Definitely will visit soon this place again. Possibly when Northern Lights are active.


Uute kohtade otsingul. Suurte lainetega võib see koht ikka väga huvitav olla.

Ancient Night of Bonfire

This year we were in Meremõisa beach. The weather was quite warm, but the wind was strong. Very hard was to ignite the fire. But nevertheless it was fun.


See aasta olime Meremõisa rannas. Tuul oli ikka väga tugev, arvasin et rahvast sellise ilmaga väga palju kohale ei tule, aga õnneks siiski rand oli rahvast täis. Kuna tuul oli suunaga Lohusalu sadam – Meremõisa rand siis saime ka tasuta kontserti kuulata :)

Lõkke saime normaalselt põlema alles siis kui olime valmis ehitanud liivast tuulevarje, enne põles lõke ikka vastu maad suunaga metsapoole. Eks paljudel oli see probleem, loodan, et reaalselt mõni mets ei süttinud kellelgi.

Diamond

The boulder shines like a diamond in beach.

Noctilucent Clouds

Well actually I didn’t camp at beach because Noctilucent Clouds. I was hoping to photograph milky way.
I was sleeping in my 4×4 camper when, with no reason, I woke up and saw these beautiful clouds. I quickly put the clothes on and ran to the beach to photograph this beautiful moment. I stayed there for couple of hours. Just looking at those clouds. It was beautiful night.

Noctilucent clouds are composed of tiny crystals of water ice and exist at a height of about 76 to 85 km. They are most commonly observed in the summer months at latitudes between 50° and 70° north and south of the equator. Noctilucent clouds can not be predicted.


Tegelikult ei olnud plaanis helkivaid ööpilvi pildistada. Läksin mereäärde, et pildistada linnuteed. Parasjagu magasin autos, kuid mingil põhjusel ärkasin umbes tund enne äratust ülesse. Vaatasin välja, et on ehk juba piisavalt pime, kuid nägin hoopis helkivaid ööpilvi merekohal. Kogu tähelepanu koondus esialgsest plaanist kõrvale. Samas neid pilvi juba iga öö ei näe. Tasus minna

Calm before storm

No Lightning

So photography is lot more to me than just a snapshot. I think that, that’s the reason why sometimes I have some motivation problems. I push myself too hard.
About that, I found one very interesting channel at Youtube. It is KelbyOne. I really like this channel topics, especially discussions about inspiration in photography.
If photography is lot more then just a snapshot for you, then I think you will like this channel.

Motion

Best seascape so far

Nice location. Definitely will return when waves are bigger.

Endless

What a view it was. Lovely.

Storm is approaching

Üllatus ootas meid kui jõudsime randa. Merelt lähenes võimas pilv, millele loojuv päike lisas värve. Vaadates neid pilte tundub ilus suvepäev, kuid tegelikult oli külm, tegelikult ikkagi väga külm. Või valed riided.
See pilv jättis endast maha värske lume ning seda oli palju. Pildid tehtud Nõval


Surprise was waiting us when we reached to the beach. Powerful clouds. Watching these pictures it seems like beautiful summer day, but actually it was freezing and when we left the beach we were surprised about that this cloud had left behind fresh snow. And there was lot of it.

Peace

Lihtne pilt, aga töötab minu meelest väga hästi. Üks lemmikuid. Nõva rand on üks eriline koht. Rannahooaeg on alanud.


My new favorite picture. Well, my beach season has started. Nõva beach has given some beautiful pictures.

Beautiful place for barbeque and just relax in peace. Highly recommend for camping stop.

Dramatic sight

Senimaani kõige raskemini tulnud pilt. Eks sellepärast olen tulemusega ka väga rahul. Aga lühidalt kokkuvõttes. Enne loojangu lõppu tuli autosse tagasi matkata, sest vasak jalg oli muutunud tuimaks/tundetuks, sellest külmast veest mida kummik täis oli. Nii juhtub mõnikord kui oled tuhinas huvitava kompositsiooni otsimisega, kuid on ka varem olnud sarnaseid olukordi :)


This is one of my hardest shot so far. I was soaking wet and sub zero temperatures. Winds where so strong that I really struggled to hold tripod still. I was so excited that I did not notice that my left leg had become numb from the cold of the water. So that was it for this day, I had to hike back to car.

Aurav meri, Steamy sea

Aurav meri ning üliilus päikesetõus. Ilma ennustuse järgi poleks sellist vaadet küll osanud oodata kui hommikul toast välja astusin. Päris ilus oli pankranniku servast seda kõike vaadata.
Tuult ei olnud, kuid väike lainetus oli. Jää murdus sarnase häälega nagu keegi avaks vana hooldamata aida ukse :)
Kahju, et binoklit ei ole, kuid arvatavasti toimetas merel ka Merekotkas. Kus mujal :)

Jääteke, Ice is forming

Lõpuks hakkab jahedamaks minema. Oli ka aeg. Aastavahetuse kärale oli ikka väga mõnus olla mereääres ning lihtsalt puhata. Tuult ei olnud, lained olid minimaalsed. Ülim rahu ja vaikus, mõnus.

At last weather is turning colder. Some signs are that Ice is start to form.
After holidays it was pure pleasure to rest at sea. Sea was calm, no wind. Ideal. Tomorrow I will go back :)

Tormine, Stormy seas and the brave tree.

Detsember on käes, teine advent, kuid õues möllavad endiselt sügistormid. Unistan endiselt lumest. Ilmselt minu- ja vanema generatsiooni mure, aga nii palju kui mäletan olid jõulud ikka valged mitte porised. Loodan, et siiski ilmad lähevad jahedamaks ning ehk juhtub jõuluime :)
Kuid tormiste ilmadega on ikka väga mõnus mereääres vaadata neid võimsaid laineid. Nautisin tänast õhtut.

 

Well it is second advent, but no hints of snow. Autumn storms still rage. I still hope to see the snow in the near future. Ideally, before Christmas :)
Also I hope that this brave tree will survive the storms.

Paldiskis tormi ootamas, Waiting storm

Homseks (30.11) lubatakse tormist ilma. Kuna mina pean tööl olema siis lootsin, ehk hakkab tormisemaks minema juba täna. Saaks natukenegi osa sellest, kuid kahjuks suurt midagi veel ei toiminud. Mõned suuremad lained olid, aga natukene lahja ikkagi.
Paldiski pankrannik on ikka väga ilus, soovitan külastada.

Prognoos homseks

Tomorrow should arrive in Estonia strong winds. I was hoping to see it today also. But, unfortunately, still a little early.
To bad I can not take a day off from work tomorrow.

Sügistorm, Autumn storm

Pildid tehtud täna. Korralik möll käib mereääres. Aegajalt kostitati ka rahe ja lume sajuga. Täpselt see mida olen oodanud pikka aega, sellised ilmad meeldivad minule :)

Virmalised, Northern Lights

07.10.2015 oli Eestis näha väga võimsaid virmalisi. Tegin sellest ka väikse time-lapse video klipi. Hea meel on, et saade Osoon, küll minu algatusel, näitab seda videot tänases saates enne lõputiitleid.
