    [–] The Month of The Hardened Earth - Norway [OC][1667x2500] Fishermang 3 points ago in winterporn

    The month of the hardened Earth. That's December. Mud turns into crumbles. Water into ice. Daylight into twilight. You think that the distant glare of sun promises more light, but somehow the contrast with the land around you makes it feel just darker. That's exactly how I like it and wouldn't want it any other way during these months in Norway. A little disclaimer to this text though, this photo is taken in the end of October and not December, but this valley was almost eternally in shadow due to high mountain walls from each side, and the mood of it was exactly what I associate with December. The month of the hardened Earth.

    Canon 5D mark IV, wide angle lens at 20 mm. F 16, shutter speed at 1/3 sec.

    [–] The Call of The North. How light looks like during noon during this winter time. Norway [OC] [1605x2048] Fishermang 468 points ago in EarthPorn

    This is a shot from winter 2016. The sun stays at this level in the sky during the months of December and January. It is really really cozy, believe me. It's a cold shot, around minus 11 CELCIUS. I was skiing to this location, spent the whole day there. Which doesn't really say much, since the day lasts for like 4 hours. The dry cold ear irritated my nostrils so I started nose bleeding. Blood really looks vibrant on snow, and no, I did not take a picture of that. My blood pressure went low, so it was a really relaxing trip back home, felt like I was flying really. Also learned an important lesson: don't bring snickers as a snack in minus degrees. Can't really bite that stuff and it takes forever to melt in your mouth.

    So that was a survival tip. The shot itself I took kneeling on a wooden bridge and zooming in on those snow patterns in the foreground. I was probably 5 meters away from them. I didn't do much to process this shot besides removing some sun flare and correcting the white balance as well as some contrast and brightness. Curious to see more?

    [–] Happy 25th Birthday to DooM! Fishermang 13 points ago in pcgaming

    I was 9 years old when I played Doom for the first time. My father worked with computers and he brought me to work one day. I was sat in front of a computer and my dad tought me how to use a keyboard and how to start games. There was a Tetris game and a Supaplex game, and then there was an icon called "Dumas", which was a Lithuanian name for the game. It translates directly into "smoke", so I started the game envisioning smoke coming out of a chimney.

    I couldn't understand the game. There was this random grown (as in adult) dude, that seemed aggressive and whenever he approached me I would after a little while die. I remember empty halls and rooms. And a yellow floating card I could pick up. I didn't get it at all. Yet the immersion of seeing it in first person, and the excitement of playing something I at that time felt I actually wasn't allowed to, made me come back to it.

    Fast forward to 1999. I am now a teenager. I am not allowed to play shooter games. So I skip classes and go home and play Doom 1 and Doom 2 till my parents get home. I still remember that winter, feeling of fresh snow on my way running home. The sounds of hidden doors opening somewhere, and the noises the enemies would make. The god damn machine gun spiders. The fucked up devilish laugh of those other evil skullhead monsters. The damned gigantic demon that made those GONK GONK sounds whenever he walked. These are memories that are so damn precious to me, that I wish I could share them with you all, make you feel like I felt. Doom was not only a game, it is a part of my youth, through the atmosphere it created it told a story. Somehow, no fancy graphics super-realistic shooter game today can do it!

    The location is in Romsdalen, the Troll Wall and the Trollstigen, one of the country's main tourist attractions. Luckily it is closed during winter so one can enjoy it in peace haha!

    This river originates from the mountains above. Can't see it here but there are many thinner waterfalls on the mountain wall ahead that all run into this one.

    Yeah, I get that, but I wish it was done more tastefully. At the moment it appears just as a big boost of saturation in all color ranges, you know?

    [–] The Outer Worlds – Official Announcement Trailer Fishermang 2 points ago in pcgaming

    I kind of can't see any reason for it though, the purple trees and bumped up saturation in all color ranges doesn't make sense, besides making it pop and draw attention from the viewer. Maybe it will become more apparent when we see more of the game and concept?

    [–] The Outer Worlds – Official Announcement Trailer Fishermang 1 points ago in pcgaming

    I am kind of worried and a bit surprised no one reacted to it. It looks really colorful. The part of New Vegas and old Fallout games for that matter that really worked well was the atmosphere, things were really bleak in surroundings. This looks like a color explosion, rainbow vomit if you will. Not a fan at all unfortunately :( I guess I will get downvoted, but it would be cool to start a discussion about this instead.

    Hell yeah. I would never do this to my cat. All cats are beautiful and don't need stupid human decorations to look "cute" for their owner.

    [–] ​ touch tha dino Fishermang -24 points ago in TouchThaFishy

    No reference, I hate those mushy super-cute decorations on cats. It's annoying.

    it's horrible! Take it off for fucks sake!

    [–] the future of last.fm Fishermang 1 points ago in lastfm

    Nowhere unless something changes. A disrespectful tone was born between a lot of dedicated users and the site during the implementation of the last upgrade a few years ago. Community disappeared. No community means also much less user contribution, which the site needs to thrive. It is the information for all the endless underground music that drives people here. Biographies, artist and album pictures and information, etc. The site is a distant echo of what it used to be and I am actually really surprised to still see it here.

    One of the associates/admins of last.fm often posts in this subreddit, which has been the only positive thing over the last few years and a sense of hope that maybe someday it will return to what it was. Simply because he seems to pay attention to the community. If you are reading this, just wanted to give you some cred.

    [–] Solitude among the clouds - Norwegian winter scenery [OC] [2048x1315] Fishermang 2 points ago in EarthPorn

    Right, I agree. Solitude is more like a an early spring with an atmosphere of winter kind of place, no?

    [–] Solitude among the clouds - Norwegian winter scenery [OC] [2048x1315] Fishermang 7 points ago in EarthPorn

    This lonely tree is living a sweet life of calm solitude atop a mountain near Trondheim in Norway. During winter it usually spends its days observing people on skis passing by in sexy skiing uniforms. During summer, I have no idea what it does, as I haven't managed to find this spot when snow has melted, and thus radically changed the surroundings. Secrets under thaw, etc.

    This dark pinkish light is actually a sunset, a brief moment of light breaking through the clouds. This is not a fog you see here. You are actually seeing the inside of a cloud. Not much different in terms of aesthetics, but in case you ever wondered how an inside of a cloud looks like, now you know!

    Taken in winter 2017 with these settings: 24mm, ƒ/11, 1/6s, ISO 100

    With these instruments: Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM.

    Let me know if you have any questions about it :) And if anyone is curious to see more, feel free to have a look at my homepage or instagram.
