Arctic frame – Svalbard polar bears through a lens

Posted by on Mar 14, 2018 in Animals & wildlife

A photographer’s dream called Svalbard. Located halfway Norway and the North Pole and dominated by ice, wind and sea. It is the habitat of the polar bear, and home to Melissa Schaefer. White, wild, and beautiful. The arctic surroundings come with cold temperatures, stunning aurora lightshows and the blue tones of glaciers. Freeze frame – […]

Posted by on Jan 21, 2018 in Nature

Portage Glacier across the two miles of lake. Surrounded by towering mountains that plunge straight into the water. Nature’s splendour right in front of me. Old friends we are, meeting once in a while. Today Gibbs will paddle his way up to greet the glacier again. Portage Glacier is an Earth time travel I am […]

Flying high || Osprey Sirrus 24 Review

Posted by on Oct 5, 2017 in Equipment

Destination Gränslandet, central Scandinavia, the borderlands between Sweden and Norway. With a new daypack, the Osprey Sirrus 24. Like a companion, only met recently and invited to come along, a new pack is a challenge. It has to walk with you, river deep, mountain high, without complaints.

The language of stones

The language of stones

Posted by on Jul 27, 2017 in In search of

Paradise is to be found everywhere. It only depends what you’re looking for. Enchanting forests, endless woods where you walk without encountering another human being – or sunny beaches, fun packed to the maximum. And everything in between. I love nature, the colours, the scents, the seasons. And stones – the small pieces of earth […]

River reflections on climate change

River reflections on climate change

Posted by on Jun 21, 2017 in Nature

River reflections and climate change, the actual subject matter. Framed in one single image since this picture represents what is important in life. To me that is, hopefully to a lot of other people as well.   Interdependence of systems. How we fit in.   We love people, we love nature, we love things. Not […]

Northern Lights – Drawing their curtains to reveal the sounds

Posted by on Mar 23, 2017 in In search of

The Northern Lights, fascinating and magnificent. A mystery, inspiring people’s beliefs and creating myths. A scientific challenge as well. The Norwegian scientist Kristian Birkeland developed a theory to answer the question why auroras appear when the magnetic field of our planet is disturbed. Even though his work lifted the veils of the aurora borealis, it […]

How Nordic nature relates with a Japanese garden

How Nordic nature relates with a Japanese garden

Posted by on Oct 29, 2016 in In search of

Swedish wilderness and Japanese gardens, the natural beauty versus the created beauty. In both surroundings there is no balance without contrast. Yet, while the essence of the Japanese garden is found in its purpose to enhance the quality of human life, the close-up or miniature landscape in a natural environment, doesn’t have a purpose in […]

Tribute to a pair of socks

Posted by on May 29, 2016 in Clothing

Spring is in the air. Throughout history the change of seasons has been (and still is) a ritual. Nowadays snowdrops, followed by daffodils and cherry blossom trees, evoke at least a pleasant promise of warmer days that are to come. Winterjackets can be stored away and we start searching for those canvas sneakers – and […]
