Nice series. The water must be cold, I only see one brave soul in it. Your beaches look a lot different then the ones around here.

Nice! You seem to be doing quite well with that Croatian wonder-film! (I am partial to Fotokemica as well - especially and they are the only manufacturer in the world pursuing the old hie look!) But I've only shot a single roll of Efke 25! Your pictures (and I love the up closeness!) make me want to try more.

I like #2 as well...at least I think that's what Chris meant? On the beach in Norway is not what usually comes to mind when one thinks of the beach...but this looks like fun. I'll bet you get great light from 10pm till ??? in summer? It is one of the things I miss about living in northern latitudes (though I've never lived anywhere near as far north as you), I loved the long, long days.

Thanks guys. The third one was on a tripod, so I got to move out of the precarious wide open/long shutter place I was for the first (25 ASA does pose the odd problem, like not always having enough light for a handheld shot on a sunny beach on a summer day :) ). Hence the better clouds.

I love the shot of Sebastian, although he looks awfully skinny after his month's holiday in Colombia with his mom... He grew a couple of inches I guess. I'll have to force feed him... Lots of favourite dishes the next few weeks. :)
The photographer in me sees how that makes a good picture, but the dad wins.

Pancakes with lard, son?

ps. hey, when it's nice here, it is really nice. It has to be nice for a good two-three weeks for the sea to warm up to where it's truly comfortable to swim, but I jumped in yesterday, and I would guess it was 17-18 degrees. We can't really expect more, so that's considered OK. And not all our beaches look like barren cliffs either... :)
The light is going away now since solstice was five-six weeks ago, so the true daylight nights are over, but the darkness only lasts three or four hours. Lovely.
The golden hour lasts for two hours.

I've stacked up on that film. :biggrin:

I've seen pictures of places in your area where there was no sand at all on the beach, but grass fields arrived til the shoreline. It was so strange for me looking at the grass just aside the sea water ! Have you any place like this there? I don't think it was a fjord because the ground wasn't steep but flat.
