The inner journey of our photography careers are often more interesting than the outer. I experienced that first hand this summer, when I got one of my favorite photos of 2019 from my “backyard”.
Over the past couple of years, I have been traveling to and spending more time in some of the popular landscape photography destinations than most photographers have. Iceland offers a great variety of unique and interesting landscapes and the Faroe Islands are big, raw, and more epic than most landscapes you will ever see. What traveling extensively to these two countries have taught me is to appreciate what I have. I have started to see what is special for my own country, Denmark.
In my brand new video, I go for a walk in an average, “boring” forest close to my home. A forest like any other in Denmark. Beech trees and plantation with different kinds of pine trees. Here I went for a walk the day before and let my curiosity and photography experience guide my path. I found several different scenes with potential for photography. I came away with one of my favorites from 2019. Check out the video above where I emphasize the calmness of the forest and describe why I think it is one of my best photos.
