I have tried to take a close look on what is coming forth in the spring.
You have probably heard about Elsinore, but not as a town with an interesting old town with funny small details to enjoy. Most know the city from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, but the other is absolutely worth to spend time on – if you happen to visit the city and want to see something other than the […]
Copenhagen have been expanding with new areas over the last 20-30 years. Such an area is of course the harbor that was being needed less and less after gods moved from smaller ships to large container ships. So old warehouses and industrial building have been removed and replaced with accommodation for new citizens. I took […]
Did a hike through a nearby forest – Jægersborg Hegn north of Copenhagen – and got some proof that spring is here.
The calendar has shown spring for a month now, some days have been warm and sunny. But some days the morning are cold and frosty, yesterday it even snowed a little, is spring hesitating this year?
Measured by the calendar last day of winter is the coming Monday, Tuesday will be spring. Today’s bright sky allow the sun to shine and provide a warming feeling. I was convinced, spring will be here soon. But winter still have a little grip, can smear some frost and ice on the ground, puddles and […]
The worst storm in Denmark in 5 years was named Malik. It ended up being classified as a category 2 storm, big media fuss and closed traffic services all over the country. In many other places around the world a category 2 storm would hardly raise an eyebrow. But OK, as you see the worst […]
As mentioned above, the wind will increase during the night peaking just between night and dawn. So think I’ll go back and see how it looks at the verge of a hurricane.
Jægerspris castle is situated in a forest close to the Roskilde fjord, it provides public access to the path ways. The terrain is rather flat so it’s an easy hike you’ll get there, however it’s possible to plan some rather long walks, especially if you start by the castle an walk all the way up […]
Danish weather is not know for it’s stability nor for it’s predictability, so no time to wonder when you experience the whole lifecycle off a season within 4 days. Friday December 10 2021 started out cold, below 0 degrees Celsius, and in the afternoon it began to snow. Saturday I was away and could not […]
Sometimes I have walked for hours gotten cold, tired, and maybe even a little wet and haven’t even gotten a single satisfying image of wildlife. So when a Eurasian Sparrowhawk landed in the backyard with it’s not cold prey it felt like pay-back. I succeeded to very carefully opening a window only 6-7 meters from […]
I spent a couple of hours in Jægersborg dyrehave to photograph the Red deer. Started the tour 1.5 hours before sunset and headed home about half an hour after sunset. This time of day provides the best chance to meet the deer, can also do it around sunrise.
t’s the nearest big city to my home in outskirts of Copenhagen. It takes around 4 hours to drive there, so for a short vacation or long week-end it’s doable. Even though Hamburg was blasted to smetherines during the WWII it has been rebuilt, and historical part have not just be rebuild with 1950-60-70 architecture, […]
Røsnæs is a small peninsula and forms the western point of Zealand. The look of the landscape is quiet different from the Copenhagen area. First of all it has hills and along the coastline you find a variation of steep cliffs and flat beaches – with some stones. The climate is affected by being surrounded […]
A nice thing about having a garden is that i provides opportunities an easy way to go on a photo shoot. Especially during the summer when flowers are in full bloom and is attracting insects. So equipped with my camera, macro lens and tripod I walked the 10 meter long journey into the flowerbed. A […]
Normally I mostly use my phone camera to copy paper documents or taking a photo to document an issue I need to remember, I do rarely think of my phone photos as part of a creative process. I don’t fell I’m in control of the photos. I can’t find how to easily switch to manual […]
Have you ever wonder over the name busy bee? I was sitting next to the flowerbed in the garden and I could absolutely understand why it’s named that way. I had my 105 mm macro lens on the camera and was trying to get a good shot of one of the buzzing fellows. I had […]
Summer in the Nordics means long light evenings, so we get an extra opportunity to get photos of our surroundings. I went to Dyrehaven for an evening hike, but bringing camera and a long lens made it take a bit longer. There is a big chance to see the deer on an evening hike, but […]
I travelled in Myanmar in 2013, 2015 and 2016 when the Burmese people was optimistic about having a brighter future with democratic ruling. When we prepared for our first trip we were told not to discuss politics and don’t show images on Aung San Su Kyi, because it could cause problems for the Burmese we […]
The stream Mølleåen (Millers stream) north of Copenhagen is often referred to as the cradle of Danish industrialism. This caused by the fact that the stream has delivered power to mills since the 13th century. The mills has served as power sources for flour grinding, paper, gunpowder, cloth and clothing and metal ware production. Along […]
Spring is definitely here, fresh leaves are all over and animals are presenting their new off-spring. I went to Dyrehaven north of Copenhagen the last couple of hours before sunset, hoping to get a few pictures of deer in the spring. Think I did, just browse through the gallery.
Lock down might be gone, but currently everything has gotten complicated and planning requiring. You need to have a negative test – not more than 72 hours old – to enter a bar, restaurant, cinema, theater, museum. So don’t go by sudden impulse, only go if you have carefully planned. My wife and I are […]
For my own part I seek to meet strangers with an open mind and being welcoming. I like to think of the next of kin as kind person who might be interesting and inspiring to me, maybe even capable of enriching my experience of life. I do not want to meet anybody with aggression or […]
Sometimes when working in by home office I am distracted by a movement outside the window. It might be a bird or a falling leave. Today it was what I have come to think of as my little red friend – the squirrel. Got the camera and had the luck of squeezing the window open […]
Every day you can see a development in the signs of spring. I been watching the trees and bushes in my garden the latest days, and it’s quite clear that we are on the move towards brighter times.
This week temperature has risen to almost comfortable levels – 10-15 degrees Celsius. This means that insects and flowers are emerging i larger numbers, so I grabbed the camera with the Sigma 105 f/2.8 Macro lens and spent an hour on the ground in the garden. Even though photos here are taken on f/10 to […]
Lock-down has changed my habits, I don’t ride the bike to-from work because I only go down the stairs to my basement office. But I need some regular exercise, so I’m up for a daily walk with my wife. We have always been visiting the parks and forests in our local area, but now it’s […]
Who someone says, ‘should we have a burger?’, what do you think of? Going to the nearest KingDonald and buy burgers in Styrofoam or do you think of a homemade meal that will keep you nourished several hours at the same time as it provides a culinary experience. I’m absolutely for the second option. So, […]
