a white tailed eagle

Order plane tickets today for a vacation to Bodø this summer. Looking forward to a relaxing time and good photo opportunities. Here is the white tailed eagle from last time I was there. It’s truly a big bird!

My wallpaper entries for Precise Pangolin

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin is scheduled for release 26th of April.  I had an entry in the wallpaper submission group on Flicker, but my photos was not selected this time. Here are the two wallpapers I submitted.

When I were in Namibia in 2008 I took this photo of the sunrise while we were waiting for the gates to Sossusvlei to open. The sky was lit as on fire as the sun came up and the gates opened.

A tiny little spider

This spider was intended for #SpiderSunday, but I’ll guess it will do just fine for #Macromonday. You know it’s spring when the first spider comes crawling over the livingroom floor.

This was the very first digital photo

#MyFirstDigitalPhoto

This was the very first digital picture I took back in 2000. I had just gotten my brand new and way too expensive Olympus Camedia 2020Z. With an F2.0 and ISO 400 and a staggering resolution of 1600×1200 this was cutting edge. After unboxing the camera I went straight outside to take a test shot, in the dark…

Thanks to +Lars Clausen for his post (https://plus.google.com/u/0/107902791674095682080/posts/jKeyqKBGUvY) which got me to dig through my files to find this.

Dolomedes fimbriatus

Myredderkopp / Raft spider (Dolomedes fimbriatus)Today I share a picture of Norways largest spider. Myredderkopp, or in English Raft spider (Dolomedes fimbriatus). It actually catches and eats small frogs. Body length can be up to 25mm. Yes, it is true. to photograph spiders in Norway you need a macro lens.

It’s always nice when something unexpected…

It’s always nice when something unexpected shows up. On a trip on the hills outside Windhoek to photograph the sunset, these two tugs were sitting on the ground. Didn’t notice their mother around, but I’m sure she wasn’t far away.
