Rømø – Birds, landscapes and night sky

We took a short holiday in March to the small Danish island of Rømø. The island is situated near the German border on the Jutland peninsular. The island has around 600 inhabitants, but plenty of holiday homes, so I suspect it can get quite busy during the summer season. We rented a holiday day house […]

Dyrehaven in December

For some years I have wanted to visit Dyrehaven near Copenhagen during the Christmas holidays, but never really had the chance. This year I took the car back home, so I could bring my tripod and 150-600mm lens for the camera. It also seemed like the perfect chance to learn more about my new Nikon […]

New camera – Nikon Z7ii

I’m a sucker for new technology and the new mirrorless technology for cameras have been tempting me for some time. In December 2020 Nikon’s new flagship mirrorless camera – the Nikon Z7ii – was released and I became one of the first in Denmark to get hold of it. Two years ago I switched from […]

6 days on the Faroe Islands

The COVID-19 travel restrictions limited the travel options this summer, but for Danes, both Iceland and The Faroe Islands was possible travel destinations. I’ve been following several Instagram and Youtube photographers that have taken great pictures of both destinations, but I really wanted to photograph the puffins on Mykines with my 600mm Sigma lens, so […]

A visit to Moesgaard Museum, Aarhus

During the COVI19 pandemic, the borders were closed and travel to foreign countries was impossible. However, that gave me the opportunity to revisit one of me favourite Danish museums in Aarhus – Moesgaard Museum. The museum’s new building opened in 2014 and it shows both in the architecture and the exhibitions. The standard is extremely […]

The Frigate ‘Jylland’

Travel restrictions still limited our travel destinations, so in July 2020 we decided to travel domestically and head for the Danish town of Aarhus on the Jutland peninsular. While Aarhus is a great town I planned to visit a very special ship about an hour outside town – The frigate ‘Jylland’. ‘Frigatten Jylland’ – The […]

Comet Neowise

This month I have been on a quest: To capture a photo of the comet “C / 2020 F3” – also known as NEOWISE. However, it proved harder than first imagined. The first night I could see the comet clearly and, following advice from experts on TV, I planned to photograph NEOWISE around 3-4 AM. […]

A 17th century naval fortress – Christiansø

In June 2020, I joined my colleagues for a 2-day work outing on the archipelago Ertholmene. You might not have heard of Ertholmene, and it’s two main islands Christiansø and Frederiksø since they often become overshadowed by their larger neighbour island Bornholm. However, a local ferry sails from Gudhjem on Bornholm to Christiansø island almost […]

Got hacked, but back up again!

My website got hacked and sadly I could not save the content – including all my old blog posts. I had to rebuild it from scratch, but that also gave me the chance to optimize the structure and content. Now my website is back and better than ever… and hopefully a bit more secure than […]
