Orust, The West Coast

Dry Season Orust B&W


Leica M9 with Voigtländer 15mm At around f/8.0, 1/2000sec, ISO 800. I just love the way the Voigt renders in B&W and I’m appreciating Landscape more and more in B&W.

When you get to an Island like Orust you cant just run around without taking in the outstanding beauty of nature. The extreme tides that normally occur on coastal areas around the Atlantic Ocean does not affect the West Coast of Sweden, due to Norway and Denmark holding back the tide so the only thing that happens here is that the depth varies a few inches depending on the moon.

The Path Orust B&WLeica M9, Summicron 50mm f/2 At f/2.0, 1/4000sec, ISO 160. Sometimes I just want to get rid of the Summicron but thats always when I miss out on a “perfect” photo of my son but it’s not his or the lenses fault that I haven’t learned to master the fast focus of RF yet.

This path is built in the middle of the field. Its probably a few 100 years old (just guessing now) and its there to protect the animals when the water is deeper. the field is at the same level as the ocean so from time to other this field is a small sea.
