Out and about

In January I was finally able to use my new camera and of course used the first opportunity to go out exploring with it. I took one of my favourite forest roads, but took a turn that I never had taken before and ended up in the most beautiful area, at a lake right by…

Beautiful winter sunsets

Most of this winter was a living hell regarding weather. The last few months of 2019 were incredibly dark and grey with hardly any clear sky at all. This additional to the very little amount of light hours everyday made the darkness hard to bear. Not even my beloved stars were visible on most days,…

One year in Sweden

As some of you might already have seen on Instagram, I recently (on the 28th of december 2019) had my one year anniversary in Sweden! It was an incredible year. I learned an incredible lot about myself. And while I made immense progress in my cultural understanding, professional self, language skills and social skills in…

A period of warm weather

The temperatures have risen and frost and snow are long gone. Instead we have been left with wet/dirty roads, incredible amounts of puddles and ice still on the lakes with a thick layer of water on it. It does offer some really cool views, especially for thos with a drone. On one of the dark…

A little bit of sun

It has not been so sunny lately and instead we had very dark and cloudy days, almost all the time in november. It is very tiring and I really feel how it drains my energy. So whenever the sun is shining, I try to use the short period of daylight to get out and reload…

Times in between

At the moment we are stuck in between seasons. It is not quite winter yet, but not autumn anymore either. The trees have lost all of their leaves after a few windy nights and the days have become incredibly short. At the moment the sun is only up between around 7:30h and 15:30h, so just…

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…
