Photo

One of my hobbies is photography. Luckily it’s easy to combine with other activities like traveling, hiking, museum visits etc. So sometimes I take pictures while I enjoy some other activity and at other occations photographing is the core activity. 

You’ll find pictures in almost any post I have in this site as it illustrates the stories. In this section you’ll find photos from sessions where photographing was the core activity.

Sea lions and Elephants

Peninsula Valdes will provide you with a whole plethora of animals to watch – variations along the year on species and locations occurs. In November it seems like everybody are in place. From Puerto Piramides you have easy access to the roads on the peninsula, however it’s primarily gravel roads so driving slowly is mandatory […]

Birds on Peninsula Valdes

Birds are found every where, some are very similar all over the world. Think you can find the house sparrow at any place on the globe, but other species are specific to the local area. Visiting Peninsula Valdes has given me the opportunity to see birds that I’m not familiar with. A new bird to […]

Whale watching

To me whales have always been exotic animals, I cannot reach the and see them during my daily life. Sometimes with a good portion of luck I can see their smaller cousins the harbor porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) in Danish coastal waters, but bigger whales are very rarely visitors to Danish sea. So getting to a […]

Buenos Aires – Jardin Botánico Carlos Thays

When visiting big cities you from time to time might need a break from all the noise and crowds. Parks are often such a place you’ll need, here I have found a suggestion for a little quiet moment that also provides entertainment if you like sculptures and plants. The botanical garden in BA provides a […]

Red Deer in Jægersborg Deerpark

I took a hike through the deerpark e few days back. As always in September and October it’s amazing to see how the otherwise peacefully Red Deer males turn crazy. You can hear their loud roar around the area, and if they happen to meet each other it can end with a fight.

4 seconds

Have you ever wondered what will happen in you life in the next 4 seconds? I have often evaluated what will happen – or more often what would I like to happen – to me within the next 1/2 year or so. But honestly the next few seconds, between rarely and never had I thought […]

Elsinore

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 […]

A newer part of Copenhagen

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 […]

Malik, the Storm

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 […]

Malik the storm is approaching

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 […]

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 […]

Drama in the backyard

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 […]

Red Deer in the Rutting Season

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.

Hamburg

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 – the most western point at Zealand

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 […]

Busy bees

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 among deer

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 […]

Spring in Dyrehaven

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.
