I hope that the pictures below aren’t too scary to look at or, perhaps that no people with arachnophobia sees the post. The pictures were taken last summer at Nørre Rubjerg in north Jutland, Denmark. I don’t know if last year was especially good for spiders but I saw lots and lots of them. Some small, some really big ones. More will come but the spider below starts us off. As you can see he/she has just caught a fly in its web and is about to have a snack.
The bike in yesterdays picture made me think of this one from the archives. I took the photo last summer when spending a lovely week at Nørre Rubjerg in North Jutland, Denmark with my family. I think it’s impossible to get tired of walking on those lovely beaches with the sound of the waves from Skagerrak in your ears.
I haven’t posted a picture of a sunset for, well, it must be more than a couple of days by now;). In order to defend myself against polluting this blog with yet another sunset picture I think this one differs a bit from the others. The sun is actually quite high up in the sky and not even visible in the picture. It does however create a nice effect on the surface of Skagerrak.
It is my semi serious opinion that some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe can be found in the northern part of Jutland, Denmark. With that in mind I always find it so mind bogglingly hard to understand that they are always more or less deserted. We have visited them quite a few of them and people are at best scarce which, of course, makes them even nicer in my eyes. The picture below doesn’t show a beach but what the shoreline looks like before the sand takes over.
I haven’t posted many movies here before. In fact, if my memory serves me correctly, this should be but the second or third one. With that in my mind, and especially if you see the clip, it should be obvious that I need some serious practise with shooting anything else but ordinary photos. Or a lot.
The movie was shot with a small compact camera, Panasonic DMC-TZ40, in it’s slowmotion mode: 200 frames per second.
In August last year we visited the northern part of Jutland and, as a guy who really loves big waves, I was in seventh heaven. A storm had just taken place somewhere out to sea and the result was quite spectacular for a person used to the inch or so high waves of Öresund in Sweden/Denmark.
Please have a look and try not to judge me too hard. In order to view it in a bigger size, please press the video and go to Vimeos own site.
As I wrote a while ago I had luck with a storm when last visiting Jutland. Luck because there aren’t that many things that I love more than just standing on the beach watching big waves come crushing in. I know, there are waves many times bigger than these in the world but I haven’t gotten to them. Yet.
So, the blog has been neglected again but I guess me writing that is quite unnecessary? Publishing a post every day is impossible at the moment but I’ll once again try to do better.
I visited Jutland, Denmark in August and had the good fortune of catching some pretty good waves. I’m sure there are lots of places on this beautiful planet with even more impressive waves but if you’ve grown up where I did these are pretty impressive.
