Sand is one of the easiest materials to build with (and destroy).
A photo from my USA trip. When coming from a flat country like Denmark, it is quite amazing to see mountains like this. To me they almost look like sculptures with all the colorful layers.
Another photo from Grand Canyon. It is hard to imagine the size of this “hole”. At this point there is almost 20km across.
Even though I could barely take the extreme temperatures in Death Valley, USA, I just had to leave my air-con’ed car over and over again to take pictures. The raw and extreme environment was simply stunning in its own dramatic way.
My favorite National Park in USA was without doubt Bryce Canyon. The extraordinary way the mountains are shapes, the beautiful read color and the compact nature of this place was simply fantastic.
This photo was taken in one of the cave-like places at the bottom of the Canyon. The light down there has a very red taint due to the colors of the cliffs that reflected the light.
Yosemite National Park was probably the one of the Nationals that I favored the least. It is probably due to the fact that it is very similar to the nature I know from Sweden and Norway. We did however spend the evening on Glacier Point with brilliant talks by the Park Rangers and a beautiful sundown.
This photo is a combined panorama that shows the sundown as seen from Glacier Point.
One of the places that impressed me the most during my roadtrip in USA was Indian villages in the Mesa Verde National Park.
This photo shows the indian village called Cliff Castle. It was entirely hidden under a hanging cliff and used to house around 120 people back in year 1200.
My latest trip was to the USA where I spent a lot of time in the National Parks. This picture is a combined (quick) Panorama I made at the Crand Canyon South rim. The sun gave a quite hard light which is why some of it is a bith too light in the color (something I will fix when I have some more time
This little fellow didn’t seem to get bothered by me shooting some pictures of it.
The winter was hard this year. At my in-laws house (nearby the sea) the water was completely iced over. It looked so deserted and cold.
More of the fantastic nature from our trip to Sweden. Love the way the sun colors the snow.
A fantastic red sundown over the Forrest in Sweden.
More of the view from the Swedish mountains where we went skiing this winter.
Went to the beach today with some friends. It was crazy….ladybugs all over the place and they were biting like hell.
The wife wanted a portrait with the wine fields in the back. The image is from an area in Italy, close to the Austrian border.
The crops are almost ready in Austria. I took this closeup as I love the way these plants move in the wind
This is from a mountain lake in Austria where the wife and I just went as part of our vacation. The evening was so clear and quiet and the reflections in the lake were beautiful.
Just a statue near the lake where we camped in Austria.
Got my wife to pose for me in the crop field. It gives the photo an all natural look.
