I discovered this image by happy coincidence. Remember the previous one I posted (seen below)? As I was editing it, I zoomed in to 100% and found this on my screen. While I think the first was a good image, I like this one a whole lot better. This is also the first time my full frame camera really comes to the test. I haven’t cropped anything this much before.
This was our last stop on the short trip my photog friend and I took on Dec. 25. I’ll be using the same image tomorrow with a variation.
I’m sure this can look very inviting in the summer…
Once you are outside the sheltered bay by Esbjerg, The Nordic Sea runs all the way to England. Common knowledge since the Vikings 🙂
I often find it hard to make pictures in the winter because of the lack of light and the often grey sky. Sometimes it works out well, though.
My photog friend and I drove on after visiting Man at Sea, stopping at all pull overs. There was something special about the sea and the light that was hardly even there.
Before heading back to the car in the cold December wind, I realized I hadn’t covered this angle of the huge sculpture before.
This image is almost identical to the previous one, only without the person. Two different moods to it. Pick your favorite…
As you can probably see it was both cold and windy on Dec. 25. this Christmas. It was great to get out of grandma’s house for a bit though and snap away. Even if our fingers felt more like popsicles at the end.
The image yesterday caused me to repost this 2012 image from the same location. I apologize for not having the time to dig it out and edit it from scratch – my fingers are itching, though.
Anyway, same location in Esbjerg, Man at Sea by Svend Wiig Hansen looking out over the Nordic Sea. But a different season. This was taken in the summer while the other was close to the shortest day of the year.
