Aurora Borealis

Finally finally finally I got lucky!I got to see the aurora borealis "dancing" over the sky. Bright and clear without and clouds in the way and I even got lucky that the moon is currently not shining at night and there was only starlight in the sky. It was amazing and I will never forget…

Autumn colors

2 weeks ago, when I started to feel a little better, I took a break from being sick at home and went out with the car to take some photos of the amazing autumn colors I could watch changing from my window. I even put together a little video consisting of drone footage I took…

Misty mornings

The mornings are increasingly beautiful now, as it freezes more and more often. We sadly hardly ever have fog in Östergraninge, but all around the village are places where it is often foggy on cold mornings. One morning I was really longing to take some photos, so I went out and first checked with my…

I have really come to enjoy going out with Tom to fish. Contrary to Germany it is not required to have a general fishing liscence, you only need to buy fishing cards for the lake or area where you are fishing. That makes it very easy to just stop at a place, buy a fishing…

The last days in June

I know June is long over, but since the long post about the bright nights, I had no longer time to update this blog, so I am summarizing what I did afterwards. At the time being I had a lot of difficulties going to bed at normal times. That was not because of the brightness…

One night outdoors

The other weekend I spent a whole night outdoors, because I wanted to see how dark the nights can get nowadays and if there is some fog on the lakes. Tom accompanied me and we drove to different places to check out the surroundings. We knew that there was gonna be a huge amount of…
