Taking photos in the dark

One of the advantages of living where I live are the differences between seasons. In “spring-winter” the sun comes along and everything gets a bit brighter, with a bit of luck it gets bright enough to catch a few photos during the day.

In spring trees, plants and flower is starting to grow again and everything gets more colorful

In summer, everything turns green

In autumn, the light starts to get low and suddenly, it’s all very colorful.

Which brings me to winter. Today sun raise was 9:20 and sunset 13:40, and if that’s not enough the last several weeks have been rainy (hello, climate change) and cloudy. In other words it’s dark before work and it’s dark after work, and if I decide to take an afternoon walk it’s “a low light situation”.

Thanks to whoever who drove past and lighted the scene

Fortunately, it’s still possible to take photos … with one change, instead of taking landscape photos I photograph the “city lights” — but since I don’t live in a city it doesn’t happen that often.

When I walk around at home it’s more like this

Still not bad but it gets a bit “limiting”. Not surprisingly this is the season for flash photography 😜

Favorite part of the year

Autumn colors

We are getting closer to my favorite part of the year, both from a photography perspective and in general. Autumn is so nice, it’s not too warm and it’s not too cold, there are lovely colors everywhere, the sun is low in the sky and it’s just nice.

The sun is starting to warm up everything

From a photography perspective it’s even better. The light is so nice, not the flat light of summer or the non-light of winter. The colors are very nice, leaves in green, red, yellow and orange, and there are berries all over.

These images are from last year, I hope to get a few new ones this year.
