What a meal

This seagull swooped down infront of us and was munching down a fish. When looking closer I saw that it was a hering filet. A double one with the tailends still attached. Later we met the fisherman that he stole the half prepared fish from.



This posting, by the way, is my blogpost number 1000. I think that is something so celebrate!


Von unserem Fischerhaus in Moskenes aus haben wir diese Szene beobachtet.

Eine Möwe flog an und trug einen Hering im Schnabel. Der war allerdings schon filetiert. Nur noch am Schwanz hingen die Filets zusammen. Später haben wir den Fischer am Nachbarhaus getroffen, dem die Möwe den Fisch wohl von der Arbeit geklaut hat.


Die Möwe hatte ihre liebe Mühe den Fisch herunterzuwürgen.


Dieser Post ist übrigens mein 1000ster Blogpost. Ich glaube, das ist ein Grund zu feiern!

a line of boats



This one I needed to present in black and white. This line of row boats was in a sound at Å i Lofoten.

Wedge between the rocks


We happened upon this rock at the southern tip of the Lofoten near Å i Lofoten.

Sunset on the beach

The title made you see an image in your head, right? But this one is different. 

This is a section of the beach in Unstad, Lofoten, in Northern Norway. This is the most golden sunset you could imagine.

The last blooming

The sun flower blooms are coming to an end. But here is a beauty from recently.

The Skies

Here is an image from near my house a few weeks ago. Bright colors of the early fall.

Warm Colors


The mushrooms in the woods are out. This tree mushroom is really old already, but I liked the image.

The Fall is Golden

We are having the nicest possible late October. Warm, sunny, beautiful foliage. This is fall out of the book.




Wir haben phantastisches Herbstwetter. Warme Temperaturen, Sonnenschein, buntes Laub... so kann es gern noch weitergehen.

Dieser und andere Wälder sind in einen Kalender gewandert. Hier könnt Ihr den ansehen. Und natürlich bestellen.

Dried Fish



Scandinavia is famous for dried fish. I love taking photos of them due to the structures and textures.

Ice Sculpture


This iceberg was thrown ashore at the coast of Iceland at Jökulsárlón.

When I looked at the iceberg, I kept seeing shapes in it, depending on the angle.

What do you see in this piece of ice?

Dieser Eisberg wurde von der Brandung an den Strand an der Küste Islands geworfen. Er stammt aus der Jökulsárlón.

Als ich diesen Eisberg ansah, habe ich Figuren darin gesehen, verschiedene, je nach Winkel.

Was seht Ihr in diesem Stück Eis?

Retro Shooting

Lately friends were visting me and we headed out to a historic train station for a retro style photo shooting. We had lots of fun despite the vansishing light and kept shooting different scenarios.

Here Feli was bravely jumping for me, over and over untill we got an image that we both liked. In editing I needed to give it a retro style touch for good measure, since it looks so fun and the look fits the outfit as well as the old train station in Lippborg.

Feli is a photographer and you find her work here:

As clouds slide down


This photo shows one of the sights we have seen frequently in coastal Scandianvia: Clouds dense as fog creeping over the mountain tops and getting caught in the tops.

Lofoten, August 2013.

Feeder Season



A friend and fellow photographer visiting us lately let me try out her Canon 100-400mm lense. I thought I would test it on our little friends in the garden, since it is feeder season now. The lense performs great and now I will need to save up and buy it. I knew I wanted it but that wish got stronger when trying it.

Here are two of the black chickadee photos I took last Sunday. Seeing that feederblock today is quite different: Just pieces left!

A morning in fall

Fall brings more color that summer, I am sure of it. More interesting and fun colors, at least.

While summer has blosoms and blue skies, fall brings fruits and harvest as well as foliage and warm tones.

It also, though, brings fog around. This is what the neighborhood looked like last week in the morning. I forgot all about breakfast and dashed out with my camera. I think, I chose wisely.

A beach in the North


When we drove out to Henningsvær on Lofoten, we passed this beautiful beach and walked on it for a while. The color of the water was just so amazing again.

By the time we came back, there was no beach left. High tide took it all.

What an amazing sunset

In a campground near Kleppstad on Lofoten we got to experience a really amazing sunset. Take a look.

Colors of the Glasmakers





The glassmaker in Henningsvaer was kind enough to allow photography - no video, though.
Unfortunately we got there when no one was making glass, but I found my spot of special colors. Does anyone know why the boxes are labled in German? I only noticed after the fact.

Klippfisk






This kind of dried fish is produced by selecting the biggest fish of the catch and salting them heavily. They then get dried ontop of the cliffs, hence the name.


To make them into food, you soak this fish in water, changing the water a few times. Then you prepare it simmilar to fresh fish. It is mostly used in fish soups.

Most summery Skies







These 3 images are taken in Henningsvaer on Lofoten. The skies were just amazing and just need to be shown. To me, they just scream: Awesome summer day!

Seagull Photobomb


We took the chance on the boat ride to Trollfjord to photograph the eagle that got attracted to the boat.
While shooting there constantly were seagulls getting close and on several images I later found seagull photobombs.


Oh well, it just is the way it is. Got the eagle sharp, though.

On the ride to Trollfjord



Of course we did not resist the boat trips to Trollfjord on Lofoten. Look at the great views we got. It was worth waiting for better weather for a whole day.

The Boats in the Bay

I just liked the way these boats were tied to the cliffs near Kabevag, Lofoten.

Ich mag die Art, wie die Boote in der Bucht bei Kabelvag auf den Lofoten vertäut sind.

Forrest View 2

Here is another one of the forrest behind our house. Same day as the one from before, just a different stretch of the woods.

Forrest View 1

I lately went out to capture the essence of the forrests around our house.

This is the first of those picutres. More will follow.
