This Year’s First Instagram

After a long and needed holiday over Christmas and New Year, it’s time for me to pick up again my blog from where I left it last year. I hope you all have had an enjoyable festivity however and wherever it’s been for you. Thank you for all the lovely comments many of you have left on my blog while I have been absent. It’s been a pleasure reading them. I will start this year’s blogging with my regular weekly Instagram post. In the beginning of next week, I will be back with a “proper” blog post again.

Once a week—or every so often—I will display one of my photos captured and/or processed with Instagram over the last week. It’s a way for me to show photography that usually is quite different from my regular work. Except for the technical details beneath the pictures are displayed without any comments, hoping they will stand on their own. But I still very much appreciate any comments you may have.

Facts about the photo: The photo was taken with a Canon Eos 5D with a 100-400 lens set at 400 mm. The photo was further cropped a bit, then transferred to my cell phone and processed with the Snapseed app with various adjustments before uploaded into Instagram.

    Very atmospheric, Otto! Personally, I would have cropped to nears the base of the more distant rocks…too much distracting white in the sea….. Happy New Year’
