Diamond beach

Photography, Travels

The pieces of ice detach from the glacier and follow the water into the ocean where they get pushed back on the black sandy beach before they melt in the waves. Icy diamonds in different sizes and shapes.

The little Red Hut

Photography

In the Lofoten Island the beach in Ramberg is well known. Especially in the long summer days people gather to watch the midnight sun. This little red hut lies a bit hidden in the middle of the beach and has become one of the mist photographed places in the Lofoten islands.

I took this long-exposure image on a cloudy and windy day last summer and love the deep colours.

The tasselled Wobbegong

diving, Photography, Travels, underwater

The wobbegong is a carpet shark  and thus spends much of its time resting on the sea floor. At daytime one have to look under rocks and overhangs to find them resting.

On our trip to Raja Ampat we came across the tasselled wobbegong (Eucrossorhinus dasypogon), one of the 12 species of the Orectolobidae family aka carpet sharks on a regular basis.

Luckily we found some of them laying in the open or even swimming around.

 

Here some video footage of a swimming wobbegong
