Sagres, Algarve, Portugal
My recent trip to Sagres, Algarve, Portugal and what I was up to and why I love Sagres – Where Gods Meet – so much. Surfing, swimming, dramatic views, and of course, cats.
Spring winter in Norrbotten
Paper mills and snow mobiles. I’m trying to present a more correct image of the north of Sweden which is not only about nature. It’s about the natural resources of Norrbotten and what we do with them.
They’re horses, not ponies
My meeting with the Icelandic horses during my visit in January and a reflection about using a camera versus using the camera that’s in my phone. Also a bit about the benefits of entering photo contests and the iPhone Photography Awards.
Sámi National Day
A wish for a Happy Sámi National day, and many more to come. With a photo I took above the arctic circle just after the midnight sun had disappeared for a short while during one of my road trips during one very special summer.
Winter at the Arctic Circle
A short “Hello” from me about my recent travels to Iceland and New York, but mostly about how life is up in the north of Sweden in the wintertime, especially Kalix where I’m based. And what you can do up here during the winter.
Once again a photo that I submitted to a photo contest got noticed and will be featured in a calendar for World Meteorological Organization.
Reindeer at midday
I did a road trip to the place I grew up in, Övertorneå in Swedish Tornedalen close to the Arctic Circle and Tornea River, where I met some reindeer. I’m doing a short summary of the culture, history and activities you can do all year round in these parts of the world.
I’ve been traveling again. From Stockholm to Norrbotten, to Sagres in Algarve, Portugal and then back to Norrbotten again. My personal guide and reflections to what I liked to do in Sagres illustrated with my photos, and of course, surfing and cats.
Moose at Midnight
Some photos from my drive along Torneå River in Tornedalen last summer. And how homesickness sets in at the same time every year because summer is the best time in the arctic. And this is also where I’m from.
Look around you – pay attention
Focusing on what’s ahead and not fully paying attention to my surroundings is something I sometimes do. Like this time when I was driving though Swedish Lapland and almost missed The Laponian Gate, Lapporten.
