In 2004 I went for a trip to Shetland all alone for a few days. I stayed in different places, either hotels, or rented apartments every night and drove all over the largest islands that make up this wonderful place .It was the first time I drove on the left side of the road, which lead to a couple of interesting situations in the traffic. This dirt road, outlined by the brick walls that criss cross the entire island, was one of the best landscape shots I got on the first day of my trip. I like the way the road seems to disappear almost into the clouds. This is shot with a very wide 16mm lens which always exaggerates perspective, at f/22 for maximum depth of field. At the time I had the Canon EOS 10D, which was my first full frame digital camera.

Dark and eery places have always attracted me somehow. This ruin of a building had been turned into a graveyard. The mood in places like this is quite special. You sort of expect ghosts or something to rise up from the ground or out of the ruin walls. And when you are alone, in the middle of nowhere, it's turns into an experience that you remember.
