#191 What just happened?

It feels like it was only yesterday when the fields were green and growing. The cold and darkness was gone and the days were getting longer. Now, suddenly, the farmers are harvesting all around. But it is only august and we still have a couple of months before the days are shorter then the nights,…

#185 Lake Vättern in the viewfinder

A beautiful day by lake Vättern – the second largest lake in Sweden. My trusty Leica M240P was equipped with a Zeiss ZM 2,8/21 Biogon. To compose the picture, when using wide lenses with an M, I like to use an external viewfinder. I wear glasses – and it is almost impossible to see the…

#181 The Bridge

There is this bridge outside Luleå that I have wanted to shoot for a long time. The bridge is called ”Old Gäddvik Bridge” and is a classic construction that is often seen in Sweden. I just haven’t had a good opportunity to stop and make something nice of the bridge. This time I was lucky….

#179 About a Picture

Drove by this field as I was buying eggs from a nearby farm. The red poppies are beautiful – even though the farmer didn’t like them. As I was taking the picture he stopped his car beside me and said ”Are you photographing the misery…”. Then he laughed and said ”You are not the first….

#170 About a Picture

This morning I was on my way southbound along Lake Vättern. Usually I choose the freeway when I travel in my work, but this time I took the old highway part of the journey. When I got close to the small city Gränna I just had to stop and take out my camera. This time…

#168 Project update

In 2021 I starded a small project; visit all Nature Reserves in my county. There are only about 300 of them. My problem is that I never seem to finish my projects – I get bored or forget about them completley. However this is a project that I get help to remember. Both my wife…

#157 Train ride in the dark

I usually fly as I go to Luleå, but this time I took the night train. From where I live it was a 16 hour trip – instead of about 5 hours if I went by air. I have to go by train to the airport as well – the flight in it self is…

#152 About a Picture

Have taken some days off from work and gone hiking in the Swedish mountains. No sun today, but still some fantastic moments. Just love the silence.

#134 Natures Art

The spring is starting to show it self in our parts of Sweden. It is still only the first days of March, and the weather can change to winter again – but at the moment we have a green nature. Yesterday we found these fantastic cliffs with large icicles everywhere. I can’t remember seeing something…

#133 Different Light

What a difference the time of day can do to a picture! I was for a short visit to my birth town Helsingborg, and had the luck of getting a room at the hotel with the most fantastic view of the sea. As I checked in to the hotel, the sun was setting and the…

#130 About a picture

Another picture from late January. It had been snowing all day, but in the afternoon it stopped. A clear and cold night was to be expected. A car has made deep tracks in the snow and low fog is starting to form. Lecia M4, Summicron 35 and Kodak Ektar 100

#103 A morning outdoors

This morning I woke up early and set out to shoot some pictures on the countryside nearby. I made some coffee and a sandwich and packed in my bag, along with my Fujifilm X-T2 and Leica M. I had hoped for a cold morning when the mist is hanging low over the fields as the…
