Homes in the Land of the Panserbjørne

The Webinar Approaches!

We’ve been going through hundreds of different comments (and some very creative and unexpected ones!!!) from the survey for the webinar. I already had a pretty good idea of what people wanted to know, but I am seeing a few surprises in there!

Now, if you want to be the FIRST to know, be sure to sign up for the free newsletter over there. We’ll announce pretty soon, and that’s a good list for the early alerts. I normally send out about one newsletter a month with links to all the latest videos, reviews, tutorials, and more. Also, when you sign up, you’ll get access to the 23 previous newsletters that are full of all sorts of cool info!

Daily Photo – Homes in the Land of the Panserbjørne

On my ninth or tenth day of the solstice, the mornings sometimes got a little strange. On this morning, it was around 2 or 3 AM. There was plenty of light, but the heavy clouds cast a blue tinge over the landscape.

And it was that strange time of “night”, when you know everyone is asleep and you feel like the only one on earth that is still alive. When everything is well-lit, you also feel a little bit apocalyptic about the whole thing. Was there some kind of Zombie outbreak, and now everyone has eaten one another into oblivion, and I’m the only one left? But it’s that sort of dream-state that is good for creating photography. When nothing around is the way it is supposed to be — then it helps to keep me in a creative state of mind.

  • Wow i’d love to live in that house – looks very peaceful indeed!

  • Peaceful until Mad Max and the zombies arrive that is hehe…..

  • Vicki Wilson

    I love the mood from the bluish cast on the scene. The houses in Iceland are really cool, with the rock foundation, looks like it would be a well insulated home. Awesome photo!!!

  • Simon Morris

    Wonderful shot Trey and great perspective… the angle of the roof blends in perfectly with the mountains in the background, creating nice lines of symmetry. I also like the stonework at the base of the house, so in-keeping with the natural landscape!
    Have a fab weekend all 🙂

  • Looking forward to this webinar.
    Very ‘cool’ pic Trey haha, although I cant help but think its wonky :S. Must of been the effect you were going for. And the dreamy zombie state you said, I’ve had that a few times I love it haha.
    Love your descriptions!

  • Surreal. And peaceful. Totally!

  • trey, chaun is silly…the otherside…thank you trey…please forgive my spelling errors…i was sleepy that morning…no time for editing or review

  • Such a cool house! Great job of setting a mood with your words too!

  • Gail in Montana

    [email protected] That does look like the spot where they dry fish, pmw. I have this on my desktop now. As all of you know, I love mountains and water. Neat that you can see the little town across the bay? It is a very peaceful scene, a calming effect for my day. I’ve had to send out so many prayer requests this week and have a funeral to attend tomorrow. So this is a great one for me today!! Thanks for sharing, Trey!! Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. 🙂

  • Susan

    Sooo beautiful and peaceful Trey – lovely scene. I am also enjoying my new print of the Li River in China – very calming!

  • Beautiful shades and hues shown in this shot. A very unique one 🙂

  • Great shot, Trey!

  • Brad Simonsen

    Tranquil, beautiful, aaaaahh..
    Love it!

  • Is that a His Dark Materials reference? <3 GORGEOUS shot 🙂

  • Hey Trey,
    What type of multi card reader and hard drive do you use? I want the exact same thing!

  • Dylan Alvarez

    Hey Trey, will you be posting the webinar separately or do we have to be online at the same time as you? I have school throughout the weekdays until three (NewYorktime) so it’s hard to be online at the right times. Really looking forward to it although I hope I can afford it… Very emotional photo though. Congratulations.

  • Really nice texture to this shot Trey….it almost looks 3D. Great Work as always!

  • Lovely image but it doesn’t feel peaceful. I think it’s the Zombie thing you put in my mind!! Thanks Trey!

  • Hehe thanks everyone!

    Dylan – you’ll be able to download the Webinar classes after the class as long as you are registered… no problem! 🙂

  • Rad

    There is lots of Iceland photos. They look the same to me. I am just saying.

  • Michele

    Chuan’s almost correct! It’s the light from the marine fuel tanks at a service station which doubles as a shop and triples as a burger bar in Bolungarvik.

    It has to be the most expensive take-out burger bar that we’ve ever been in – Euros 35 for the Family Deal Meal – 4 burgers, fries and a 2l bottle of Coke. We didn’t order it!

  • Michele

    BTW, Trey – love the title for the post. The Panserbjørner are among my favourite fantasy creatures and I love Philip Pullman’s books!
