Today I went to Sandhammaren to test some things with my camera. So different around here in the wintertime. A lot less beach but more sea. No people ! Regardless of what time of the year it’s a favorite place of mine. Love to go for walks on the endless beach. Today I went to work with my camera. Testing a filter.
as you can see this is where I removed the filter
refreshed and freezing cold I left this special place curious of how my pictures would turn out. What do you think?

The sky was filled with dark clouds and I could not see the moon until all of a sudden…. I grabbed my camera and ran down to the shore and got there just in time for it to disappear behind some massive clouds again ! Im not the one who gives up so I waited and waited, freezing my fingers off for around 20 minutes but then it showed up from behind the dark clouds. it really was a supersuper moon. Wonder if I will get some sleep at all tonight..maybe I will be out howling?
tonight was good practice since it’s not easy to catch the moon.

Today the first of Jan 2018 started out along the shore together with my dear friend Katrin. Almost no wind and a couple of degrees celsius.
Im happy to have a friend who inspires me when my inspiration is low. She’s a great artist and takes such artistic -esthetic pictures.

The newly opened ( 2 weeks ago ) Louvre is a must-to-do if in Abu Dhabi. I brought my niece who’s 15 and she really enjoyed it.
the Louvre has 12 galleries, it’s a journey from prehistoric to contemporary art.
Among the Top ten masterpieces to look out for are:
Leonardo da Vinci – La Belle Ferronnière 1490, Vincent Van Gogh Self -portrait 1887, Portrait of Fayoum Egypt Antinoopolis 225-250 A.D., Jacques -Louis David Napoleon crossing the Alps 1803, Claude Monet La gare Saint -Lazare 1877, Bactrian Princess central Asia end of 3rd beginning of 2nd millenium BCE, Jackson Pollock number 26A Black and White 1947,
then you’ll find Miro’, Hopper, Caravaggio, Vermeer, etc etc etc
I must confess that it was the building in itself that caught my attention. Love the architecture. It’s amazing what they can do…..
my companion today
If you plan to visit you need a couple of hours at least.

Yesterday we headed east for Sträntemölla preserve, Forsemölla, Rörums backar, Österlen. This part of the world is truly beautiful.
I love the old stone fences
first part of the fall……
the second part is the highest
there’s something special about waterfalls…our niece said ” it’s like stepping into a Lord of the rings movie” and it truly was…mysterious and magical
we walked through beautiful old deciduous forest
and then all of a sudden we entered “Mandelmanns trädgårds” grounds
with open pasture, summer meadows and rolling “hills”
walked up to the top of a hill where we could see all the way to the sea…
Rörums backar, the hills of Rörum in panoramic view
truly worth a visit if you’re in my part of the world. perfect spot for a picnic.
