Oak trees are one of my favourite motifs, their majestic appearance and appealing branches are so great to photograph. December 12 was one of these days, you just had to be out to experience the Arctic air and frosty landscape. When Mother Nature hits us with a sudden blast of cold, at least in this part of the country, she sometimes softens the blow with an indescribably beautiful phenomenon called "hoar frost." Some call it frozen dew, or white frost.
In the first two weeks of December, the magic of winter arrived in Denmark, after a wet autumn it was most welcome and it was a nature photographers dream come true!. The cold Arctic wind from the north only lasted for two weeks and now the frost and snow has gone; time for browsing through my work from those magical weeks.
I have decided to share my best images from this exciting period on my blog, I was out as much as possible and I had a few days dedicated to outdoor life and my favourite hobby, photographing outside. These images for me, evokes memories of winter and much of what I love about photographing during the colder months of the year. It's always a reminder of how fleeting some of these special moments are and how great it is to experience them when we get the opportunity.
I will not show my images in a chronological way, but rather make collections of images that work together, from the past month. So stay tuned and follow my blog if you like winter images.
