On our way to the beach at Kvalvika, we somehow managed to get lost in this beautiful small town. That’s the thing with Norway, even when lost you still get to witness something magnificent. Case in point.
Been a while since I last posted, mainly because of work. But I also had the opportunity to take a few weeks off to go travelling. First I went to the Lofoten Islands in Norway, which was spectacular. It really felt like being in a fairy tale of sorts. Then I took a short trip to Barcelona, Spain. So I have a few new photos that I will try and process and post them as soon as I can. The first picture I want to share is from Eggum, Norway.
This was on the first day of my trip to the Lofoten islands. Needless to say that the bar was set pretty high for the rest of the trip. I can gladly report that I was not disappointed with the rest of the trip, it really quite amazing.
Have you ever experienced such amazing scenery in real life? Leave a comment.
So it has been a while since I last posted. My plan was to post at least once a month, but life seemed to have other plans for me. I have been out travelling for about a month or so, but have also been very busy with work and relocating. So to make up for it, and to try and keep the site alive, I wanted to share a little timelapse video I made in spring. It’s nothing serious, just having some fun while hanging out with friends. Hope you guys will enjoy it.
Anyways, I have a lot of exciting posts coming up from my travels to Norway. Since relocating I have yet to set up my workstation, where I have all my pictures and videos, and therefore haven’t really had anything to post. As soon as I get my workstation up and running again, the posts will start rolling in. Hope you guys will stay tuned.
Spring is turning into summer, the sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, life is good. Everything just came together that day, as I was walking through Risskov in Denmark. After a very long and busy week, the sun smiled upon me on a Saturday afternoon, and begged me to come outside. I packed my bag, and headed out. Not really sure where I was headed, and it didn’t matter. I let my feet do the navigating, and ended up in Risskov.
I had walked through this forest not a couple of months ago, and it was a completely different scene. It was wet, dark and gloomy, still had some charm though. But it made me think of life, and the path of life. We have to walk this path of life, whether we want to or not. Life can’t be all sunshine all the time. You have to walk through the wet, dark and gloomy parts of life, to eventually come to the sunlit, warm and comfortable part of life. Like a rainbow, you can’t have all the beautiful colors without rain. You need rain AND sun.

I have recently been wanting to do a lot more night photography. But of course as usual, due to a lack of time I haven’t really been doing it as much as I would like. I did manage to squeeze one session in, a very short one but a session nonetheless. I just could not resist the urge to grab my camera and go for a photowalk. Especially since the weather is getting warmer and you can almost feel the city coming to life again.
Anyway I thought I would share a shot from that day.
What I discovered, or rather what I had forgot, was that you absolutely need to make time for the things and people you love. I hadn’t been out shooting for a while, and it was really starting to get to me. It is as essential for me to keep shooting, as it is to plug in your phone when the battery is drained. I simply can not function without it, or at least very poorly.
So remember people, make time.

Oh man, it has been a while since I last posted, and I do apologize. Things have been kind of hectic these last couple of months, and will be the next couple of months. First of all I am moving to a new apartment, and it needs a little work before I can even begin to move in. My workload has increased, so things have been kind of crazy at work. Trying to maintain my workouts, which are really important to me. And to top it of, I am always trying to squeeze in a little time for my true love, photography. But I am soldiering on, and take one thing at a time. So bare with me if I only manage to post a couple of times a month. I promise that it will soon be back to normal.
Anyway, to get away from the stress of it all, I always take my camera and go out for long walks. This particular day, the sun was high in the sky, and spring had just begun to embrace us.
I was walking along the pier in Aarhus, and everything just felt good. The sun was shining, people were happy, the water was shimmering, and you could really feel the warm embrace of spring coming on. It is amazing what a little sun and fresh air can do. All the problems and worries that you might have had, no longer seem that big or serious.
On whale safari in Greenland we stopped at a small village in the fjords. Can’t quite remember the name of it, but it was very secluded. I do however remember seeing some of the icecap drifting right by the village. Which makes me wonder what the bell tower is used for.
It probably is used for a couple of different things, like calling town meetings and such. But I would also like to think that the bell tower, has been around long before the invention of radio communication, and it was used to warn fisherman and other boats about the incoming icecap.
So after digging through some photos from Eco Day 2012, I finally found some pictures I would like to share with you. This first one is a cow looking majestic prancing about after being let out. For some reason I didn’t quite capture any of the cows going absolutely nuts, which they did.
This year I’m going to get up early so I can get the best spot, and finally capture the cows going crazy. Last couple of years I haven’t been too lucky getting a good spot, and therefore have missed out on some of the crazyness.
This next picture is two cows feeling the love in the sunshine. They were probably separated the whole winter, being in different barns or something. Anyway, that’s how I imagine it.
It really is a sight to see hundreds of cows prancing and dancing around. I think I have some pictures of them going nuts which I will be posting next week. I just need to take time to sit down and find them, and edit them. Keyword here being time. So stay tuned for more pictures.

I was out on a photo walk in Aarhus, Denmark, when I witnessed this explosive sunset. I noticed train tracks leading in to the sunset and around the bend in to the unknown. Well, not that unknown. I could just have walked around the bend and seen for myself what was there. But I prefer to keep it mystical.
