The story behind the picture "The castle of Gripsholm"

The composition is pretty straightforward. I wanted the castle to be the main subject in the image and I hoped the sunset sky would burst in colour. I framed the castle in a more central position in the image and put the horizon line near the lover third line in order to show more of the sky. In this particular image, I didn't want to blur out the water because it was pretty calm, to begin with, and I liked the reflections from the sky in the water ripples.

In the picture above I have marked where the shooting location was and the left and right endpoints of the panorama. The panorama consists of 7 frames wide each bracketed +1, 0 and -1 stops.

This picture was taken at Pite-Rönnskär in the most northern part of Västerbotten sweden. It's a small fisherman's island located just outside the cost of Kinnbäck, Sweden. It's a beautiful place that has lots to offer for visitors. On the Island, there is this chapel that was built in 1771 for the fisherman who had houses in the fishing village. In 1821 Pite-Rönnskär became a pilot station, and in 1849 a pilot cabin was built on the island. There are about 30-holiday homes on the island, formerly the homes were for Fishermen and Their Families During The fishing season.

Exploring the surroundings in "Järvafältet nature reserve"

I have been out exploring the nature of "Norra Järvafältet" in order to see if I could find some nice compositions for further photography. It's cool that you have nature reserves so close to the Stockholm city limits. It's really a city with nature and water. I thought it would be easy to find good compositions but it proved me harder then I thought.
