  • "Three Pebbles", Tasermiut Fjord in the Evening, South Greenland #ansharphoto #greenland #tasermiut #arctic #nikon #d850 #nikonnofilter #nikoneurope #myrrs

Single shot, focal length 16 mm, aperture f/11, shutter speed 6 seconds, ISO 64, tripod.

As I said in an earlier post, Greenland was a challenge. Getting there was a challenge. Being there — while exhilarating — was also a challenge. But I hadn’t yet seen just how difficult the island could be. On our first couple of days in Greenland, our forays were limited to relatively short hikes away from the water’s edge, on terrain that was devoid of people but posed no serious impediment to our movement. But on our third day there, we encountered our first truly difficult experience on the island. It was also one of the most rewarding.

Hiking in Greenland is different than hiking anywhere else I’ve ever been. The southern part of the island is almost completely forested and there are no trails or routes for hikers. Hiking in southern Greenland means that you are left to make your way through birches and moss and that the hike you think will take two hours may take twice that long.

As we moved onto steeper elevation, we found ourselves wading through dense birch forests on a sharp incline, all while carrying heavy camera gear in a backpack. My tripod, at least, was a help to me — as the incline became steeper, I used it as a walking stick to help me in my ascent.

After five hours of hiking up difficult terrain, we still had not reached the desired peak. It was tough going at this point — the slope was nearly vertical and making progress required climbing with both hands. I was grateful for the dense moss under my boots; there were places where it seemed the traction provided by the moss was the only thing keeping me from tumbling hundreds of feet to the ground.

  • Jadi, gue, @wira_triasmara dan @fotonyadnlwkrt mencoba merealisasikan sebuah wacana, yaitu bikin podcast. Ngomongin hal-hal yang penting (buat kita tentunya) dan kebanyakan hal-hal yang juga pastinya kurang penting. Monggo disimak! Linknya ada di bio. Thanks!

  • She said it's okay if you love another girl.
Just say it straight to her, no lies, that's better.
She said she'll wait until you say that you love her.
But it doesn't mean she's going to wait forever.
She said it hurts knowing you're in love with someone else.
It's obvious because of course, who wouldn't get hurt? 
She said she's gonna move on, she's letting go.
And she's going to forget that she loves you.

  • This is one of my favorite buildings in the world. The elements include line, form, texture, colour, pattern, light and space, through the relationship between space vectors of different coordinate systems, lines and turns of brush strokes propel unobtrusively the expansions and twists of space, mainly as a play of light and shadows while moving in space. It is here that we are invited to enjoy the light, space and art. The building is an appropriate and majestic expression of form in lines and light.
