Green Road

Green Road
The colorful season of Autumn is here. The colors are changing everywhere, and quickly. This is Mulstavägen at Välsta in Tungelsta. I use this road most everyday,(the old tree is in the area). If I remember I will stop here for a comparison photo next month.

Entrance ramp

Påfartsramp
Construction work on both sides of the Gudöbroleden motorway at Trafikplats Handen this Autumn. This will be a new "påfartsramp" (entrance ramp), to the motorway to Stockholm. Part of the big traffic project that also involves the work at Trafikplats Vega that I have showed you before. Took this photo from the pedestrian bridge where I sometimes shoot panning photos of cool rides. This is near a birch forest behind the Biltema store.

No Sign of The Big Bad Wolf

No Sign of The Big Bad Wolf
There's been a lot of press coverage this Summer of a, (Norwegian), wolf that has been seen in this area. And even a Facebook group for the sightings. As you can probably guess some people have gone ballistic. Politicians in both Haninge and Tyresö have asked to have the animal put down. Concerned parents that have seen the wolf in their garden were afraid that the wolf would eat their little ones. It feels like there's a new wolf story every day. What we do know for a fact is that the wolf killed a sheep in this pasture a while back. This is in the Tyresta national park and they asked for money to set up a better fence two years ago, but as no one had ever seen a wolf here back then, they were refused that funding. Chances are that they will get that money now. No sign of the wolf during my stakeout at the pasture earlier yesterday.

Scaffolding

Decided to go "arty" after shooting a few normal snaps of the apartment buildings at the construction site at Lillgården. This was the result.

Höstfärger

Höstfärger
I never want to shoot Autumn photos because when I do it means Summer is over and that is never a good feeling. So this year I tried a different approach. I decided to go out and look for signs of Autumn/Höst/Fall. The title means Autumn colors. As seen along a path at Håga in Västerhaninge.

New Park

The new park The new park
New trees and bushes planted at what will be a new park in Tungelsta, near the new houses at Stav/Lillgården. Still some work left here, including paving the walkway/bike path that runs parallel to the stream. No rain despite the dark clouds. Both photos shot with my new 85mm lens as panoramic images and then cropped a bit.

VELOTHON Stockholm 2017

VELOTHON Stockholm
My last post of this years Velothon Stockholm bicycle race. A collage and a slideshow. In it you can spot the photographer that came home with nearly 4000 photos. To see the photos at flickr press here. It was a good day for cycling, great weather and many happy riders out on the roads. I met one woman at the FikAnn cafe who after the race rode back on her bike to the cafe, (an extra 20km),for a well deserved rest and a bite to eat.

Panning Shots

Ride of Hope Peace Cannondale Stanley Security
Four panning shots of cyclists taking part in the VELOTHON Stockholm race that took place yesterday. I'm still going through my photos. I took around 800 photos and was quite pleased with that number. Then as the closing car drove by in the early afternoon I invited two photographers that I had just met to coffee at the FikAnn cafe and was impressed by both of them. Both when it came to equipment and numbers. Lars told me that he had been out since five in the morning! He shot at f/11 when snapping cyclists coming directly at him so to speak. He used a tripod and didn't move around much, very unlike my method as I prefer the panning action. The other guy, (didn't get his name), used a zoom lens ten times more expensive than mine and he had taken 3800 photo during the race. Expect a few more posts from this bike race in the coming days.
