Happy Earth Day❤️

Cormorants, mallards, gulls and one white wagtail, that was what I saw!
I think an early morning is better for bird counting 🙂

Happy Walk!

Wonders of the Sea

If I want peace within, I’ll go to the sea.* It performs miracles.
I even found eider ducks in spring mood.

Those who live by the sea can hardly form a single thought of which the sea would not be part.
~ Hermann Broch

I wanted freedom, open air and adventure. I found it on the sea.
~ Alain Gerbault

The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.
~ Jacques Yves Cousteau

If there’s heaven for me, I’m sure it has a beach attached to it.
~ Jimmy Buffett

*In lack of mountains!

Wandering

Lots of people were out and about enjoying the sun, wind, and the fresh air this spring. I caught the picture of two ramblers with the Øresund Bridge in the background.

Keep Up The Good Work

September, you are doing great. We are enjoying the wonderful days of yours ❤

By all these lovely tokens
September days are here
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

The Light by the Sea

Today is a cold rainy day in August. In fact, it could easily have been a day in November.
I was looking through my own pictures to match the light of Joaquín Sorolla’s wonderful paintings.
But I decided to deviate, with this summer image back in June 2015, where people were wearing overcoats.
Just like today 😀

Colours of Life

Fishing is much more than fish. It is the great occasion when we may return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers.
~ Herbert Hoover

Balancing on the pier towards the ultimate fishing ground.
The Øresund Bridge can be seen in the horizon line.

If you’re to choose to paint your life today… What will it be? Remember, you’re the artist, not the canvas.

The pilot boat comes home from a work assignment

“Amongst the most densely trafficked waters in the world, subject to low and variable draughts, significant currents and crossing ferries, the narrow Danish waters pose a real navigational challenge to even the most experienced bridge team.” *
