We went for a quick trip to Brevik yesterday, a small town in Porsgrunn Telemark near the coast. It was about -10 degrees celsius and we took aim at a small island with great view to the Brevik bridge and the mainland.

We had a timelapse in mind during the trip but both Espen and I failed to keep our gear in proper order. Espen was missing a sync cable to the Syrp setup and I had no more battery left in my Syrp Mini to make a decent timelapse. So what do we do? We find a dark spot and start shooting long exposure pictures instead.

Espen (in the top picture) tried his Zeiss 24-70mm. F4 lens while I was still on my Rokinon 14mm. f2.8. We did some shots against a moving ferry and the Brevik bridge and here is what we ended up with after some editing in Lightroom.

First up is Espen with his Zeiss.

Note to self for next time:

  • Cables must be in the bag, not at home
  • All (yes all) batteries must be full, not empty
  • In 30 cm. snow, use proper boots
  • Don`t underestimate the power of gloves
