Melting away with Avalinity

A couple of days ago, the temperature in Sweden rose and we’re now going strong at over 30+. This tends to happen most summers, at least for a couple of days (Sweden is else known for having the summer raining away), but it always catches me of guard, haha. If you follow me on Twitter, […]

I’m going somewhere

Sometimes I find it quite nice to just jump on my bike, and take a ride. Often I don’t really know which way I’ll head, I’ll just go where I feel like. Being surrounded by such great nature where I live gives me a lot of opportunity to fins nice settings to share with you. […]

A bike ride

Towards new adventures! — AREKU (@Areku_Avalinity) June 26, 2015 Yesterday I took a long ride with my bike. As I recently acquired one of those computerized speedometers, I could read afterwards that I rode 32 km during those hours. That means a bunch of different places to shoot!

Evening walk

Another evening walk with my camera. I live in the middle of nature, so most of my shots reflects this. Photographing landscapes is a challenge in itself.. Also, all of these photos are taken with the Chinon 135mm f/2,8, so see this as a continuation of the post I made yesterday.  

Trying the Chinon 135mm (f/2,8)

As mentioned in my previous post, I got myself a new lens yesterday  – the Chinon 135mm f.2,8 with a M42-mount. The lens can be found online, and depending on condition and mount, go for around 30-80 USD (which makes the 7$ I paid for mine seems like a joke) so it’ s in no […]
