Photographing the Wild Horses of Langeland


After an absence of two weeks, we are back. What happened? Illness? Laziness? A trip? Stopping with the website? None of the above. Lars and I just took some time to think about the blog. Somehow, we weren’t entirely happy with it. After studying our site in detail, we found out why. It wasn’t the content, it was the way…

The Shelter


It’s not often that Lars and I find remnants of World War II in Denmark. Maybe it’s because we have never looked for them or maybe it’s because we were simply in the wrong places… That changed when we had a stop in Ollerup. 1943. The Germans requisitioned 3 schools in Ollerup. In the beginning of 1944, they decide to…

Nyborg Beach

Fresh Sea Air

After The Storm – The South Of Langeland


Langeland is a small island, located to the south of Funen. This island never seems to amaze me. The difference between north and south is huge, with beaches and cozy towns in the north, while the south is characterized by rough and almost desolate landscapes. To be honest, I feel more attracted by the south. Fewer tourists, but sometimes the…

After The Storm – Kerteminde Harbor


After Lundeborg, Lars and I went to the north of Funen, to Kerteminde. Kerteminde harbor is a place we have visited before. In different seasons and weather conditions. In winter, when the sea was frozen. At Sankt Hans Aften, when there were bonfires everywhere. In summer, when people were having a stroll and eating and drinking outside. This time, it…
