Cold, wet, dark, snow – some images

Norway during winter. Some images from yesterday. All of them snapped by Eirik Solheim. Creative commons licensed. Contact me for commercial use.

Icy old Volvo in Oslo, Norway What should I say? Cool car.
(Canon 400D with Canon EF 50mm 1.4 @ 1/250 sec at f / 3.5. ISO400. Adjusted to B&W in Adobe Lightroom.)

Wet Dog
Wet Dog. At Bygdøy, Oslo, Norway
Satisfied with the fact that the dog’s eye is pretty sharp.
(Canon 400D with Canon 70-200 F4 L IS USM @200mm 1/60 sec at f / 4.0. ISO200 RAW. Adjusted to B&W in Adobe Lightroom.)

Looking at birds. Speaking in phone.
I think this one would have been better with focus on the birds. Or maybe not?

Cold Night
Lamp. Snow. Night. Evergreen.
Yeah, right – night. Not. This is Norway at 5 PM in January.
(Canon 400D with Canon 50mm F1.4 USM @ 1/125 sec at f / 2.2 ISO1600 RAW)

Tree with heavy snow
Snow. Night.
Camera and lens. Had to survive quite a bit of snow when snapping this image. Still works fine.

  1. How much work do you normally do in Photoshop after Lightroom?
    I have been using Lightroom now for a couple of months and are very impressed by the advanced functionality and easy user interface.

  2. Hi my name is Rosie and I really like the image of the “wet dog”. I was wondering if I could use it to make a drawing in charcoal? You can see my work at the website provided.

    Thank you,


  3. That is absolutely no problem. Simply include some kind of credits telling that the artwork is based on an original image by Eirik Solheim /

    The image is licensed with a creative commons license, meaning that you can use it for non commercial projects as much as you want.

    But I think it’s interesting that you want to add value to the image by making a charcoal drawing based on it. So even if you end up selling your artwork I’ll let you use it. If you end up making millions selling drawings based on my image I hope you’ll be kind enough to provide me with an original drawing or something. 🙂

    And please let me know when you’re finished so that I can feature your drawing on this blog.

    Let me know if you need a high resolution copy of the image.

    You can also contact me directly through the email on my contact page:

    Thanks so much! The high quality image you have provided is all I need.

    I will definitely send you a copy of the finished product,
