Norra Grönby windmill and PhotoAcute

Shot on a tripod at f/10. I was unable get further back as I’ve promised not to go into the field just behind me. Also I was kind of annoyed that my camera somehow was set to .jpg instead of .nef. Luckily I was bracketing (not HDR) and was able to combine the images using the excellent tool “PhotoAcute” into a working 16-bit TIF.

The image itself is not a HDR shot – only tweaked in camera raw.
A single 8-bit jpg file would not provide me with sufficient data thus I needed a 12-16 bit image. (I usually shoot in 14-bit .nef (Nikon raw file)).

There is a trial version avaiable att www.PhotoAcute.com , do check it out :)

Windmills from Scania

It’s not a secret that I like windmills, so I decided to repost some of my photos , digitally altered this time. All of them located in the southernost part of Sweden; in my home region of Skåne (Scania).

More windmills revisited

Inspired by my photo yesterday I decided to revisit two more windmills today; Kyrkoköpinge Mölla and Södra Åby Mölla. – I was unable to mimic the shooting position in the latter case as it would’ve ment me standing waist-high in snow :D.

Old Norse Runestones and more Windmills

Today I made a local mini-expedition – aiming to get a few photos for this blog. Here are the results:

I read today that there are about 150 remaining Windmills in Scania , here are two of them; (in addition to the three I shot a while ago).

Also I paid a visit to Tullstorp , where this 11th century runestone is located, the inscription reads: “Kleppir/Glippir ok Ása reistu kuml þessi eptir Ulf” (Kleppir/Glippir and Ása raised this monument in memory of Ulfr.)

Windmills..

There are plenty of old windmills in this region of Sweden (Scania).
This region is famed for it’s fertile soil and it appears impossible (for other Swedes)
to understand our dialect :).

(In Swedish the word for mill is “kvarn” , in Scanian, however, we say “Mölla” (The letter “ö” is pronounced like -eux in the French word “deux” meaning “two”.)
