2019.03.24. Born in Iceland which is in Northern Europe, an island between the Greenland Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, northwest of the UK. Geographic coordinates: 65 00 N, 18 00 W. Grew up in Reykjavik and also in a beautiful place named Borgarfjordur in East Iceland where I learned to appreciate the nature, thanks to my loving aunt. Married, one son and daughter in law and a beautiful grandson. Started taken photographs 1974 with a Kodak pocket camera, continued 1978 with Canon AE-1 and later with F-1n in BW. Stopped mostly between 1990 and 2000. Then started again and improved my FD system. I´m still a owner of Canon F-1N and some of the best Canon FD lenses. The goal with my photography is: To share with others what I see and feel with my camera, in my online images. Many thanks to the following: The founders of Photo.net, for this excellent site. To the PN members for their contribution and specially for their time, constructive comments and kindness. My loving wife for all her help. At last to Skuli Thor Magnusson teacher for his great photography course late in 2003, which was both a revision and an addition to my knowledge. I try to be fair, honest and positive in my ratings and polite in my comments. Last 13 years there has been a change in my lifestyle. Riding Harley-Davidson and BMW motorcycles is an addition to my interest. However, I´m back in photography again with my Canon Eos 5D Mark II and EF 24-105 f/4L for the moment. Many thanks for your interest time and thoughts.
