A cold morning at the beach

it was 7:00 AM, the thermometer showed -12C when I pushed START button on the dash board in the car, to drive the 10 Km to Bellevue Beach park. The aim was to be there before sunrise, which was at 7:38 AM, no problem. I have on other occasions visited this beach for sunrise, it […]

A hike around Bastrup Lake

Almost 11 months ago my office was shut down due to covid-19. I had taken to work from home a couple of days before due to a sour throat, so I just continued working from home. In between shop, cinemas, museums, theaters, malls and almost anything else has been subject to lock-down, reopen and lock-down […]

The missing fisherman

In the beginning of January 2021 I visited Gilleleje in North Zeeland, I found this motive interesting and is curios of where have the poor guy gone without gloves. Is he on the bottom beside the pier, in the nearest tavern (it’s lock-down so it can be ruled out) or at home beside the fireplace. […]

Reersoe, it used to be an Island

At the west side of Zealand (Sjæland in Danish) you find a small peninsula called Reersø. Ending with an Ø indicates that it was named as an island. And sure enough it has been an island, but during the 17 century sediments in the bay between the island and Zealand made a connection and in […]

Squirrel in the rain

Today I have been working in my home office 10 months and 1 day, so I have settled some routines for the day. First thing in the morning is to get in some fresh air and have a look outside into the garden behind the house. Today I was surprised to hear a rather loud […]

Visiting a Buddist temple

A year a go I woke up on a thin madras laid out on a tiled floor. It was pit dark, it was 4:30 AM and I was woken by the roosters in the village starting to crow, they new that the sun would rise within 1,5-2 hours. As you can imagine I was not […]

365 days ago

365 days ago I was not in my home-office, neither in the company office with all the colleagues. I was traveling through Vietnam and Laos for my annual long vacation. On January 4 2020 I was visiting Savannakhet in Laos. We had walk in the city and met with our guide for next couple of […]

Fireworks, is it beautiful?

When I was a kid and young I was fascinated by fireworks, it was a thrill to light the fuse and wait for the ignition. No matter if it was a rocket or a fountain, it was a thrill! (firecrackers was banned in Denmark in the early 70’s due to inflicted damages). My father ran […]

I love to travel, but will I dare?

For years my routine around new-years eve has been, to go to the airport, travel to a remote location and stay away from Denmark for 4 weeks. This year I’ll do something different… The drill has been enter a plane in the early afternoon, plug-in earphones, order a G&T, watch some movies, have some sleep, […]

Black and White from Copenhagen

From time to time I chose to convert images from the usual color to B&W, think it brings out other aspects of the image. If I’m experiencing a dull light – e.g. full grey overcast – conversion to B&W can improve the image. Here is a couple of examples that was not taken under a […]

First real sunshine in December

December in 2020 has been almost record breaking grey and dark in Denmark. On the 21st only 1 hour of sunshine has been registered! So when the weather report for the 23rd announced possibility of a clear sky and sunlight I was happy not to have meeting or activities fixed in the calendar for that […]

Copenhagen on Christmas Morning

The weather forecast for Christmas day was bright blue sky with sun, so my wife and I decided for an early morning tour through Copenhagen. We started out more than half an hour before sunrise (it’s not as early as it sounds) to take pictures of the newly installed artwork on the pier next to […]

Distraction when working from home

Usually I used to complain about disturbances in the open office. You know, someone tapping you shoulder for a chat (both private and professional) , listening to passerby conversation, talking somewhere etc. breaks your concentration on the task you are about to. To be honest I have praised working from home during Covid-19 as it […]

Covid fatigueness

I have been working from home since March 10 2020, except for 2 meetings at a customer, 4 short visits to the company office. Part of the time the company office has been locked down and for other parts of the time we have been recommended to work from home. To be honest I have […]

Red Deer in the Rutting season

Close to my home is Dyrehaven, a closed area but more nature than park. It’s home for 3 species of deer, in all more than 2.000 deer. Of those 2.000 3-400 are Red deer, and they have their Rutting season during September and October. As the area is quite small you can experience the deer […]

Blackberries III

Here in the start of September my early blackberry bush is almost empty of berries. I have had the success to harvest the most of them, maybe due to the green net put on top of the bush. Or the birds had chosen to go for other foods. But unfortunately a blackberry bush grows quite […]

Black Berry II

Almost 2 months ago I posted some images of bees working on the flowers on my black berry bush, hoping that the bees work would result in fine berries. It has, during the the in between time I have seen berries grow and go from green to red to the fine ripe black berries. As […]

Fallow deer in Dyrehaven

In the evening at the last day of July I went to Jægersborg Dyrehave, north of Copenhagen, hoping to meet some deer. The area hosts more than 2.000 deer of 3 different species. This evening most of them seemed to be seeking for hideouts, so we only spotted a few Fallow deer and some birds. […]

Black Berry

I live in a terraced-house (in US a town house, in UK a terraced house, in New England row-house) and by this follows that we only have a small piece of land (240 square meters in total), so no large orchard or flowerbeds, but even a small garden can provide you with pleasures. I love […]

Faxe Limestone Quarry

Almost 80 km from Copenhagen is a small town – Fakse (sometimes Faxe) – situated on top of a limestone quarry. I’ll not state that the town itself is worth the 45 minutes drive from Copenhagen, it looks like any other small town. But as limestone quarries are very few in Denmark it seemed like […]

Copenhagen during lock down

I got the urge to document how Copenhagen look like when the city is in the state of lock down. So one morning I got up early, and went into the city centre to get some photographic evidence of the state of Denmark. Of course with the thought of sharing my experience with you. So […]

Hanoi in the Rain

When someone mentions Hanoi, you probably think of a busy, noisy and hot city. But it can be different. I was in Hanoi in January 2020, around the Lunar new year and the 3 parameters above was not in play. First it was only around 15 degrees Celsius and it rained now and then. Second […]

Savannakhet

Savannakhet or known under it’s official name Kaysome Phomvihane is the second largest city in Laos. It is said to have 120.000 inhabitants. Even though it’s large it seems small and quiet. I visited the town in January 2020, the dry season. We were told that it hadn’t rained since start of November and it […]

December Light…

I’m not a fan of winter in the Nordic countries, temperatures will be dropping from comfortable to freezing and light seems to disappear. Currently sun will rise around 8:30 and go down again around 15:30, it should provide 7 hours of daylight. But the last 3-4 weeks the weather has not been helping the access […]

Copenhagen at Midsummers Morning

I took a stroll through Copenhagen harbour on Midsummers morning, just before the city woke. It’s a special experience to see the city with no – or rather very few – people. And when the weather shows it’s best side, sun, no clouds and no wind then you can get some amazing photos. I’ve just […]

How good is you glass?

How often do you actually see glass? Most of the time I don’t see the glass, I see whats on the other side, because modern glass – be it windows, camera lenses, spectacles – is clear an almost invisible. For specs and lenses they are even coated to avoid unwanted reflections in order to create […]

Copenhagen Springtime

Just some shots from Copenhagen in early days of April 2019. Cherry trees are also blossoming and of course it is like a block buster. Crowds of people flock to the churchyard with the cherry alley, so it can be hard to get a shot of the trees or the flowers. If you want a […]

Litter in Copenhagen

When you are visiting a city, either your home town or some foreign city you probably at some point in time want to enjoy a drink or snack, some body also take a smoke. What do you do with the packaging or leftovers? Off course, you take it to the nearest garbage bin, because you […]
