Back to Reality
Fuji x100f, 35mm, f/11, 1/100s, ISO 200
There I was, wandering around Seurasaari feeling like city and civilization were far away and then… I came back to reality.
I think my time in Finland was the first time I was truly exposed to a winter sun this low (and in the sky for so short a period). I made many attempts at shooting directly into the sun, using trees and branches as partial covers. This one (I think) works quite well at evoking what it felt like (ie. damn cold!)
House in the Frost
Fuji x100f, 35mm, f/8, 1/100s, ISO 200
I really wanted to do this shot in long exposure of at least a few seconds, which would have frozen the water, but despite the embedded ND8 in the x100f and a polarizing filter, I would only bring it down to 1/5th of a second. So I shot this straight instead. Still pleased with the results although I really have to find a good source for ND1000 filters.
