Going home at sunset – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…” A nation of sheep breeds a government of wolves.”

Did you know that the first digital camera was made by Fuji in 1988 (called the Fuji DS-1P), although engineers at Kodak had earlier made a camera that used a CCD (charge coupled device) ?  Digital cameras had evolved as a natural extension of the technology that had been developed for recording television programs, such as the VHS tape system.   In 1986 Kodak engineers made the first million-pixel sensor.  Even Apple joined the race, producing the ‘Apple Quick Take Camera 100’ in 1994.  At the other extreme, Fermilab built a 500 megapixel camera for use in telescopes, and the latest professional digital cameras are coming with 70mp sensors.  Progess.

Sometimes you need to take a lot of shots of the same scene in order to get one good one.  Today’s photo is just one of those situations, as it needed a lot of shots before the fishermen were in the correct position.   Timing was so important for this shot, which comes from Mindelo in Cape Verde Islands.  End of another day.

Autumn Morning in Norway – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day….”  If you have the ability to reach, the top is always vacant.”.

” A single step begins the journey of a thousand miles.”

Did you know that all the gold that has ever been mined (about 165 000 tons) would fit into two olympic-sized swimming pools?   And did you know that if you placed a diamond in an oven and raised the temperature to 763 degrees C, that the diamond would disappear?   And did you know that the total amount of money in a game of Monopoly is USD 15 140 ?   And did you know that the name ‘Microsoft’  came from the combination of the words ‘microcomputer’  and ‘software’.      And for chocolate, the world leader is Switzerland, where in 2012, each citizen ate an average of 11.9kg, Ireland was second with around 9.9kg/person.

Another beautiful autumn morning in Norway, with excellent clear light and still conditions for the photos.   Again, this photo is a combination of many smaller photos that have been joined together to produce one large, high resolution photo.   I had already planned this photo, so knew where to stand when the conditions were right, and I had also planned the individual photos that would go together to make up the large shot.   Again, it shows what you can do with a normal, cheap consumer camera (Panasonic).
