Be My Eyes, Synin 

 

This beautiful portrait of Eïvor’s trusted Eagle companion Synin, is taken by Instagram user @beloved.of.bayek. Not too much to say about this picture, other than it’s overall awesome looking and well structured.

 

The focus depth has been nicely paid attention to, as Synin in the front is in focus, while the illuminated ocean, snowy mountains & blue winter sky fades into the background.

Welcome back to a new weekly virtual photography initiative hosted by Gustav Poulsen from The AC Partnership Program.

 

Each week, five Assassin's Creed shots will be showcased here on TOWCB website, in order to promote virtual photography and community contributions.

Gustav is a seasoned pro when it comes to virtual photography, and has a keen eye for special shots.

Look out for more Photo Logs over the coming weeks, some of which may include Assassin's Creed Valhalla!

England 

 

With the release of AC Valhalla last week, a new era of Assassin’s Creed has begun! This also means a swarm of new beautiful pictures, capturing the beauty of the North has hit the community. The honor of having the first Valhalla capture featured on the recap list goes to Instagram user @ladyofthecreed.

 

Kept short, this picture perfectly captures the sun behind a line of trees, spreading its beautiful light rays, as but a fraction of the English coast is illuminated.

Beautiful Norway 

 

Coming in at slot number four on the list, is a magnificent landscape shot by Twitter user @jules_vp_.

This picture stunningly captures the sun setting over the snowy cold mountains of Norway, as it illuminates everything from the ocean to the snow.

 

The lighting cast from the sun is on its own extremely beautiful, given its red, purple and golden colors. If anything, this picture is a prime example of how to capture the golden hour.

Ancestral Rite 

 

This next picture is taken by Instagram user @acvideos_tiziochesichiamatizio. Judging from the title, this picture finds Eïvor paying his / her respects to the ancestors through a campfire ritual in the night.

 

The photographer has really paid attention to getting the lighting just right, as Eïvor is completely covered in the darkness of the night. Not only is this capture just cool looking, but it also has an overall mysterious & spiritual vibe to it.

Snowy Rivers 

 

Fifth capture on the list is taken by community member @ckaloush. In it we see one of the many cold snowy rivers of the North, going through a forest filled landscape as a flock of birds soar above it in the distance.

 

Additionally, the picture’s relatively dry and non-warm colour grading, perfectly matches the cold landscapes and winter vibes we see in it.

Sunrise 

 

Kicking off the latter half of the first AC Valhalla recap list, is a capture by Assassin’s Creed UK founder and admin @davewoodwardac.

 

In it we see Eïvor on some high ground, watching as the sun rises on the cloudy horizon, casting its light all over the English highlands. This picture is not only extremely pretty, but also has certain cinematic vibe to it.

From Norway to England

 

Coming in at the seventh spot, is a beautiful cinematic shot by Twitter user @G_Assassin90. In this one we see Eïvor having made it to the top of one of the many tall snow filled mountains of Norway, looking out over the ocean and snow filled landscapes. Additionally, this one also captures the stunning purple-esque colors of a Northern sunset.

The Light Of Winter 

 

We’re obviously big fans of the early captures of the golden hour, and here is yet another picture of just that; this one by Twitter user @3mpireTimes. Not too much to say about this one, other than it once again beautifully captures the magic warm colours of a Northern winter sunset, as it also lights up all the magnificent surrounding landscapes.

A Northern World 

 

On the second last spot on the first Valhalla recap list, we have just one more sunset capture for now, this one by Twitter user @Leromir. This one stunningly captures another Norwegian landscape, as it, the ocean below and the clouds above are all coloured purple by the imminent sunset.

 

The colours of a cold winter sunset do have a certain magic to them in the real world, and it looks like the new game has done a great job replicating that very magic. We can’t wait to see more pictures like this!

A Viking’s Destiny 

 

Finally, coming in at the tenth and final spot on this week’s list, is an Eïvor portrait by Instagram user @theguyinthespacesuit.

 

A beautiful close up portrait taken from the side of our Viking protagonist, as he sees the sunset light casting over the Norwegian mountains. Right by his side, soaring above him, is his trusted raven companion Synin.

 

This picture has a certain epicness to it to say the least. As one would presume by his facial expressions, this portrait is Eïvor getting ready to conquer the entirety of the map.
