I get up early most days, it’s one of the few advantages of being a boarder line insomniac. It meansI have plenty of time to cycle the 18 km’s to work before the local town is awake or have even thought about waking up.
I’m lucky in that at least nearly a half of my route takes me along the river path where there are lots of things I can record and the weather is never the same.
This Picture was taken at around 04.30 in the morning everything was totally quiet even the ducks were sleeping when I rolled to a stop by this old stone quay.
It was a foggy start that day so there was plenty of atmosphere I took this low shot which a mate said looked like the cover of some new Scandinavian Crime novel. Anyway just to show the difference I took a similar shot next day without fog and a different aperture setting.

As I promised last week I’m going to try and post one shot a week to re-start my blog.
I took this shot during our brief summer holiday last year The wood to build this church was first felled in the winter of 1180 the building began in 1183. Of the approx 1000 churches built there are 28 left Borgund is the one that is least altered.
Nikkor-Z 24-70 f/4.0
A fishing boat waits patiently for a day out besides a deserted café
The harbour in winter is spookily devoid of people . You see the evidence of them just not the people themselves. I wanted to bring that emptiness into the photos I took.
Another shot I took while walking around the harbour in Hals. The light and dark tones were what first attracted me to this still life shot.
The contrast between the packing case and the rest of the scene makes the shot for me.
I think there is always something sad about a boat on land. They just don’t belong.
The nets are ready for a days fishing.
Goliath lies ready and waiting for its next job.
Another shot in the same vain from my recent trip to Denmark. You can see the other I have posted here.
One of the shots from my recent trip to Denmark. I choose to shoot with my Hasselblad 203FE and 80 mm lens. I took along some T-Max 400 asa and shot off four rolls in the short time I had.
The film was developed in T-max soup for 6mins and 45 secs at 20°C. The Negatives were scanned using my Epson V700 and Betterscanning.com holder.
