Wondering, Watching

Took this photo the other day. I just thought the stark colors against the frozen ocean would look nice. The guy in the photo is my cousin.

Wild Weekly Photo Challenge – Spring (on Ice)

Last week I thought spring had come, it was 12 degrees celcius and the sun was shining, the ice was melting and the birds singing.

But the weather in Denmark is treacherous, and now it is snowing, freezing and the lakes are closing again. Tomorrow we’ll have a blizzard, lucky us.

I was lucky yesterday and the sun was out. So I decided to try and get a photo for Letsbewild’s Weekly Challenge themed: Spring.

I’m participating in the online adventure travel and photography magazine. LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggers. This week’s Challenge is: Spring!

Smoking Sunrise

Today I was up at 6:30 in order to be ready at the beach before the sun rose.

I had expected the real beauty to reveal itself at 07:01 when the sun was to rise above the horizon, but that turned out to be untrue. The most beautiful time was 15-30 minutes before, when the clouds and sea take color and mix with the dark night sky.

Next stop Panama!

Long time no see…

Hopefully the photos will soon start flowing.
On April 3, I am leaving Denmark for greener pastures. I have in mind to backpack through Central America on a 3 month adventure, and hopefully I will come across a scene or two worth a photo.

I will try to update regularly, but it might be on a weekly basis since I expect leave civilization and go off the grid for longer intervals, hence the lack of internet connections.

I might update on travel preperations in the weeks leading up to departure, but otherwise it will be from the April 3 and onwards.

Until then you will have to suffice with photos from cold cold Denmark.

Reflections – Photo no. 4

Obviously todays featured picture isn’t from Australia, but from Denmark…

The picture is a reflection of my girlfriend in the Danish winter weather..

The photo is taken by me at the following settings: 1/60 s, f/5,6, ISO 400 with zoom level 50 mm. on a 18-70 mm. lens.

 

The picture is taken in late December in Denmark, when me and my girlfriend was taking a walk with her dog…
There is not much else to tell about this picture, other than it is a beautiful scene, especially because of the person in the picture..

Tomorrow is another day, and picture…

Hello World – Photo no. 1

Hi there…

I thought I would do a quick welcome post, therefore the very first picture on my blog will be of… me..

post continues below the giant picture..

Me in front of Sydney Opera House

okay so this is me… (and yes, my hair does look pretty silly on this picture, but it was very windy and I really needed a haircut!)

My name is Anton Blinkenberg Zeuthen;  I am a 19-year old college student from Denmark, currently I am studying IBB (International Business Baccalaureate) at Niels Brock/Copenhagen Business College…

If you have read this far you probably have figured out that my blog is a photo blog.. I am going to post one picture a day; this picture will either be one of my own, or a picture that have inspired me or fascinates me in some way…

I am far from being a professional photographer, which you soon will notice through my personal picture.. but I am getting eventually better, hopefully..

My camera is a Sony Alpha A200 which isn’t a fabulous camera at all, but I needed a camera that didn’t cost a fortune, since I am living in Sydney, Australia the next couple of months, and it might get damaged during my adventures…

The next 2 months are primarily going to be photos from my doings in Australia + a little story on how and when the photo was taken..

This picture of me is taken in front of the Sydney Opera House on 11th of February, 2011.
As it is hard to take a self-portrait without a tripod, my friend Christian is the photographer of this brilliant picture.
The picture is taken at the following settings: 1/160 s, f/10, ISO 100 with zoom level 18 mm. on a 18-70 mm. lens..

This was all for now, I look forward to showing you some great photos in the future, and I hope that you will enjoy my blog… If you have any comments or suggestions, please let me know! (my contact info is in the “contact” menu)..

See ya around
