That One Perfect January Morning

These days, winter around here mostly consists of wet soggy foggy days with the occasional days of hard frost and bitterly cold winds, but no snow. And then suddenly that one morning happens where the world feels engulfed in magic. Where wet and cold meet and turn the landscape into an unbelievable combination of frost, mist and sun.

The West Coast

The Danish West coast nourishes me on every level. Although I live surrounded by the sea here on Aeroe, the West coast is something entirely different: The drama and scale, the power of nature, the colours of the sky, the sand, the windswept grasses, the deep mossy pine woods. I go here at least once a year, and if I don't I feel a longing deep inside me.

Inspired By: Jonna Jinton

Today, I want to share Jonna with you. In case you don't already know her she is a young Swedish girl who moved from the big city and now lives in a tiny village far into the deep woods of Sweden. She creates the most incredible photos, films, art and songs (or Kulning as it is traditionally called). I have been following Jonna on Instagram for a few years now, and it always lifts my spirit when I see one of her magical landscapes or moods show up in my feed.

A Magical Woodland Walk

The drive home from Trysil is a 10 hour trip and half-way home the kids needed a proper break and we all needed to stretch our legs. So when we saw a row deer playing around on a field near by, giddy with spring impulses, it seemed the perfect occasion to pull away from the highway and explore a bit. But nothing prepared me or us for the magic that undfolded when we did.

Norway Roadtrip

For those of you who know me or follow me on instagram, you already know that I consider Norway my second country. It has been a part of my life ever since I was a little girl, back then mostly for winter holidays skiing with family, but in the later years I have been so furtunate to travel there in the summers as well. Back in August I was booked to photograph a wedding there for the third year in a row, and I had a wedding booked in Copenhagen the weekend before. So I decided to do a solo roadtrip in the week inbetween, driving from Cph to Oslo and North to Nesbyen to visit Alexander and Pauline at Lille Alpakka, then explore the two National Parks of Hardangervidda and Folgefonna, and finally head south to photograph the wedding in Stavanger.

My Favourite Season & Slow Roasted Lamb with Tomatoes and Plums

Every year, without fail, September feels different. With the mist from the sea slowly rising up swallowing our house and the fields and trees around us, covering every surface in a silvery glow of thousands of tiny water beads. All of this only to subside moments later as the sun rises, turns the silver into gold, and drives the mist into hiding in the shadows of tall trees and in valleys. These mornings are quiet...

Baked Mackerel & Summer Evenings

Taking into consideration that we live on an island, we actually eat surprisingly little fish. Everyone in the family loves fish of all kinds, but somehow lamb, chicken, and wild game most often end up on our plates. But these days a good friend of my husband is having a lucky streak with mackerels, and we are lucky enough to get a "bite" of that

Into the Woods

I find great pleasure in living on the island of Aeroe. It is peaceful here, safe and quiet... and last but not least... clean. The sea and the lack of buildings, people, cars etc makes the air here fresh and wonderful.

However, on a very basic level my body and soul is nourished by bigger landscapes. Mountains. Wide open fields and wilderness. Tall century-old trees stretching above me. Mossy dark woods that go on and on.
