Stockholm From Above

The other day I had the pleasure of taking a helicopter ride above Stockholm City. I brought the new Hasselblad X1DII to try out for Hasselblad and the camera really performed over my expectations. It’s just something with a medium format camera that really gets me going. I tried to focus more on the uncommon spots of Stockholm rather then going for the more familiar spots (Eventough i got those aswell). I was actually a bit surprised myself of how beautiful this evening became.

Here is a small collection of the images i took from this evening.

And as the sun was about to set and we where on our way back we spotted these two hot air ballons having a good time above Stockholm. So we followed them until sunset.

And a few words about the camera. The Hasselblad X1DII . After playing around a little with Hasselblads previous generation the Hasselblad X1D, I have to say that the upgrade is just stronger, faster & better. As soon as I had taken my first pictures I just felt that the camera and I connected. Watching those beautiful colors come to life on the live view just made me wanna go home and watch the images in full.

The story and a few more images are now also published over at Hassleblad
