The last, few days, I’ve seen a tremendous amount of landscape photos going around in the blogosphere. There was a challenge that I missed out on, I think. Anyway, this led me to think about that shooting landscape doesn’t really seem to be my thing. Perhaps you must have a special «eye» for landscape?! I have an eye for ducks.
Nevertheless, one picture came to mind … a landscape photo that hardly anyone would have missed out on. It was shot the 1st of October last year, north of Härnösand, Sweden.
The day before, my friend had bought her life’s first DSLR camera … a Canon, which had a special offer so that she got three lenses with it. Of course, she was eager to get out and shoot, so this gorgeous Saturday we drove a bit north and out, towards the sea. There are oodles of quaint, picturesque, little fisher villages up there, but to start with our mind was set on the big bridge … Höga Kusten-bridge. We started out early, so we had breakfast at the hotel there. Imagine that — sitting outside on their patio, in the sun, having breakfast the first day of October in northern Sweden! The weather was just unbelievable for that time of year.
After shooting the bridge, we went on, without a plan … just driving around the gorgeous country-side, chatting like magpies [we’ve known each other since we were twelve!], listening to old goodies from the 60’s, lauging and halting as soon as we saw anything, even remotely, picture-worthy.
