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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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. […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 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 […]
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 […]
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 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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
On my way to La Palma I stayed a short while in the city of Madrid. Not a long stay, but I’m sure that I’ll go the for a longer experience in the future. Until then you’ll just have a few images.
Not so many words, but quite a few photos
A day in Pisa requires patience, as the city is crowded by visitors striving to see the main attraction – the leaning tower and the cathedral. Apparently many visitors only see the main attractions and skipping rest of the city. But I will suggest that you take time to see other parts of the city. […]
I enjoy traveling, some times it’s just a short haul for a weekend to a nearby city and some times it’s a long haul to a different continent for a longer duration. For all types of travel I like to share my experiences. So at this site you’ll find information about my experiences around the world. Only a few of my travels has been documented, but hope you enjoy what you find.
A nice stroll through the Deer Garden on the second last day of 2018 brought me some photos of the deer living there. Unfortunately the light was not as generous as one could hope, so ended up with ISO at 1600 which provides a little noise. Haven’t removed the noise as it would also remove […]
Going to Copenhagen, then I will recommend to come during April through September. The other part of the year has unpleasant weather and light. If you are interested in bringing home pictures of your visit, the winter half of the year do not assist you. Besides being cold, wet and windy it’s with low light. […]
I prefer to call the city Firenze, like the Italians do, and we do in Denmark. As many other Italian cities it’s is crowded by tourists, but a guide told us that if you come in November, January or February there will be few tourists. We did what you are supposed to do, visit the […]
A beauty full series of villages are found at the Mediterranean coast, the area is named Cinque Terre. It’s easy to take the hike along the coast, you just walk from one town to the other – don’t think you can get lost on the way. If you don’t want to walk back, you just […]
On the Western outskirts of Copenhagen you can find the forgotten Giants created by Thomas Damsbo. Here are my pictures from a trip to all 6 of the giants in the area.
Event though I live in the Copenhagen area I act as a traveler in my own region. So of course I’ll share information of sights and experiences in the Copenhagen area.
When you fly to northern Italy from Denmark Milan is the destination with the most flights and best prices, so as a Dane you are likely to start the journey in Milan. i did, and stayed in the city for a couple of days. First day we went to the city center to look at […]
