Are some of the nicest people I’ve meet in a very long time. And what is extra cool is that they own a mill, yep one of those really old school ones, unfortunately the weather was any good when I was there, so I did get a photo of the mill, but I will the next time around.

And in the short time I had there, I only got to make a portrait of Bodil (alone) with my Polaroid camera, but I’ll show you those later on.

The first photo in this little series, the one of Ole at the top, that is my all time favorite, from the whole trip. I think it tells you a lot about what kind of character Ole is. Very funny and a little bit crazy on the good side that is.

NB: the first photo is made with my Nikon D3s and a Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8 lens – the two others are made with the x100s

The Lighthouse at Stevns

I been up for sunrise 4 times within the last month, and every time I driven to Stevns, to photograph the limestone cliff and the lighthouse.

This one is from my second morning, where the sunrise really sucked, but right before it, there was a really nice mist, that gave me these awesome light rays from the lighthouse light.
This isn’t the best angel to photograph the lighthouse from, I found a better one a little later, but then the light wasn’t any good, but luckily I went down there two more times….

The Hawk

There is something about those eyes, I think they look really sad.

And I can’t blame it for being exactly that, because it was one of those hawks, that tourist can pay, to have up on their arm, and then get their picture taken. And right before the shutter clicks, a guy pulls on a robe, attached to the back of the hawk, which makes it spread out its mighty wings, because it thinks it about to fall of the arm.

I always feel really sorry for those kind of captured animals, and I never paid to get that kind of “entertainment”. Normally I don’t even make any photos of them.

Long Extend Sunrise

20140913_063713Buy Print

Here’s a sunrise photo I made on my trip to Langeland a bit more then a month ago.

As you can see in the EXIF data below, it’s a 30sec exposure I got that using a ND 400 filter on my 24-70mm lens, but first I made a “normal” exposure, and used that one to mask in the birds sitting on the poles, because with a long exposure they are not gonna be sharp, because they move around quiet a bit in the 30 seconds in takes to make the long exposure. And then there is the fact that I had to use f20 to get the 30sec. a lens is normally sharper around f8, so I used f8 for the “normal” exposure to get as sharp an image as possible.

  • Aperture: ƒ/20
  • Camera: NIKON D3S
  • Taken: 13 September, 2014
  • Focal length: 24mm
  • ISO: 200

Below Carlsberg

20130828_025928

My good friend Thomas works at Visit Carlsberg, and through he’s connections at Carlsberg, I manage to get a few hours in the old basement below the brewery. And what a scenario there is down there, I could have spent a lot more time walking around, finding new spots to photograph.

And I think it would be a great location if you do fashion/model photography.

Rat Rock

I don’t know what defines a fine art photographer or a fine art photo? And who tells you if you are one?
Or is it just something you nominate yourself to be.

Is this a fine art photo? And if so why?

NB: Thanks for lending me your lens Santosh.

NB NB: The name of this small island is not “Rat Rock” but “Rat Rock Island”

A few days ago, I was out with the guys n girls from my photo club, some of them had organized a shoot with 5 cars in a parking garage in the heart of Copenhagen.

Caught these two at a Naadam festival, in a small town in Mongolia. These traditional Mongolian outfits are just so damn awesome, and if you add a cool looking hat, then it’s a must photograph moment.
And luckily they are willing to let you do that.

At the well-known Golden Gate view-point Battery Spencer, did you know that if you climb through the fence, you can walk a bit down the hill, and get this cool view of the bridge.

Here’s another photo from that same Bryce Canyon morning, I posted yesterday.

Early Morning in Bryce Canyon

20100729_073724Buy Print

I was in a bit of a hurry getting to Bryce Canyon for sunrise this morning – got up a bit late – and in all the confusion I mistook the sunSET view instead of the sunRISE view, so I ended up on the “wrong” side of the canyon.
But the sunrise was amazing and I still got some pretty cool photos I think.
