A Single Path of Vision
Rocky Landscape 1 ©2011 Arnestad ~ Rocky landscape on the coast of Herfoel, an island in Hvaler county, Norway. The water pots left and right are typical for the coastal island and is seen everywhere. The tower on the peak is for ships visibility and this particular tower is called Linnekleppen.
Its vision sweeps its one path
like an aged monk raking a garden,
his question long ago answered or moved on.
Rocky Landscape II tonemapped ©2011 Arnestad ~ Rocky landscape on the coast of Herfoel, an island in Hvaler county, Norway. The scene is captured as the sun sets in summertime and the image gets the nice and warm tone to it. The tower on the peak is for ships visibility and this particular tower is called Linnekleppen.
Far off, night-grazing horses,
breath scented with oatgrass and fennel,
step through it, disappear, step through it, disappear.

About Arnestad Photography
Arnestad Photography (NO 990 983 267 MVA) presents the photographic work of Thomas Russ Arnestad (b.1979, Oslo).
He works as the Head of Photography at Inviso AS, the largest real estate photography company in Norway. During low season he performs ad-hoc photographic work for numerous clients.
Besides interior photography he also shoots a lot of landscape, architecture, cars, products and travel images to name a few.
His interest began, as for many others, with the fascination of light and the beautiful impact it has on the nature surrounding us. From there on, it´s been a long journey to get where he´s at now. His nature and landscape photography, is today as then, a form for recreation and an excuse to spend some time alone.
Recent photos have been targeted into more specific projects and series than before. This is the way to go for getting more thought and substance into the photography for Arnestad.
