Exhibition big style

Late March this year my new outside exhibition premiered in Badhusparken Östersund Sweden. It ran for a week and features 8 photos each with a size of 2,4 x 2,4 meters. This was a really fun exhibition to be able to show both the Sun and the Moon bigger than probably most of us ever see them.

If you would like me to exhibit my photos somewhere, please contact me at

Below you can see all the photos that were on display.

Total Eclipse on Faroe Islands

Here's my first report from Faroe Island.

I arrived to the islands yesterday afternoon and I instantly fell in love with this place. The scenery here is just out of this world. I'm having a hard time taking in all this beauty and to think that on top of all this, there will be a total solar eclipse is just to good to be true.

Here are some photos from day one.

Lunar green and blue flash

Last week I was out to shoot the moon rise above the mountains, the day after full moon, so the moon was 99% lit at the time. When I got back home and looked through my photos I found that in one of the photos I found some green and blue flashes. I've never seen them above the moon before, only above the Sun. Here's a image sequence I took of green and blue flashes from the Sun -

Rare bird Aurora Heron

While preparing my upcoming exhibition (March 28 here in Östersund, Sweden) I was going through some old photos and found this all sky photo of the beautiful aurora that was visible on March 17 in 2013. While looking at it I realized it actually looks like a big Heron flying in the sky.

I also did a transformed version of the image and then it looks like the Heron is sitting down, looking at the moon and planet Jupiter.

Here you can watch a time lapse movie from that awesome night, a night I remember very well.

Preparing solar filters for total solar eclipse

Today I've been preparing a couple of solar filters for two of my tele lenses. With these two filters I'm able to shoot the Sun in white light during the eclipse on March 20.

I will continuously report from my preparation and during my trip so follow me here on my blog, Twitter or Instagram for the latest updates.
