“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”

It is autumn in Denmark and Charlene and I are spending some nice relaxing time in the country at my father’s place. It may be cold, hot, windy, rainy and sunny – four seasons in one day – but it is always beautiful. The elements of nature are felt just outside the door. This is home, this is what I knew as a child. It is good for the soul to immerse myself in the outdoors with my loved one. I am immensely happy I took this road.

Oh and I have a new camera! Fujifilm Nordic has very kindly loaned me an X-T2, the successor to my favourite camera ever, the X-T1. Much more to come, suffice to say I think I do not think I shall ever need another camera. This truly is perfection for me! The best camera I have ever used. Here is a small slice of autumn with the X-T2 – in glorious Anton Corbijn and P-A Jörgensen inspired black and white, I seem to love shooting everything in black and white lately.

X-T2, 23mmF2 lens. I borrowed Charlene's new 23mmF2 lens for a day and I totally get why she loves it so much. I made this with it.

I really love this one :) X-T2 and the 23mmF2 lens. Many would not consider 35mm a portrait lens, but it is for me!

I really love this one 🙂 X-T2 and the 23mmF2 lens. Many would not consider 35mm a portrait lens, but it is for me, I love portraits where I can include the environment.

X-T2, manually stitched pano shot of the storm at Thorup Beach with the 18mm lens. It was so windy the in-camera pano function kept telling me to pan better, cheeky thing! Manual it is!

This road, us, forever.

    Beautiful images and text!
    …PS: I also consider the 35mm as a portrait lens as I can tell stories with it including the background. Keep up your inspiring work, greetings from Germany, Kevin

      Thank you so much Kevin. You are spot on with the description of shooting portraits with a 35mm!

    Superb shots and text. Coming also from the countryside, I can totally relate to what it does to your soul to return. Love the 4 seasons in DK. Your Anton Corbijn style is unmatched.

      Thanks so much Jesper! I am glad you like my very Anton inspired (ok, I am really shamelessly ripping off his technique, I admit it) work, but it is nothing compared to the master himself! 🙂
