Trekroner Fortet

Trekroner viewFor the last six month I have been work on creating photos, for a new museum here in Denmark. It’s an old viking castle, dated back to around 900 A.D.
I had two tasks. One was to make photos that had an atmosphere like they where made in viking age. that was mainly forest, lakes and coast lines. They used those in the app, on the website vikingborgen.dk and as background on the portraits of the archaeologist – which my brother made – and some of the information boards on the site.

My second task was to capture eight historical defense buildings in Denmark, And todays photo of  “Trekroner Fort” was one of them. Those photo are placed on the the path, from the entrance down to the actual viking castle. with the newest building first – which is Stevns Fort – and the oldest last – which is the Valdemars Wall.

Here are a few photos I made on the opening day. the official opening was done by the queen of Denmark.
