Perhaps I should have saved the title of my previous blog post for this. ‘What the hell am I doing here’ feels very fitting now that I, very surreal, seem to be back in Copenhagen. 84 mind blowing ‘the best days my life’ photography and adventure in Namibia, Western Australia, Malaysia and Borneo have come to a stop. But it is just a temporary stop to get rid of baggage in my life. Sojourning for ever as a travelling photographer. New horizons, new photographs await.

My to-do list is overwhelming with RAW files to develop, getting new web sites, compressing my life and company into a travelling mobile package, prepare for next take off etc. First up is finishing the project for United Plantations and develop their images, so it may be a little while before I get to my own work and new blog posts with new photos.

In the meantime, enjoy this image I shot at Deadvlei in Namibia. Namibia is the photographic highlight of this trip. It is the most beautiful place I have been. I am dead certain it is the most beautiful place in the world! It is also some of the best images I have created.  I dreamed of a whole country of Wide Open Spaces. I dreamed but it was not a dream, it truly exists!

    Very sweet mate, not a sign of life anywhere. The shape of the tree is great.

    Kære Flemming

    Jeg håber ikke, det krænker din ophavsret, at jeg nu har brugt billedet som baggrund på mit skrivebord! Du skal blot føle dig beæret – for jeg er meget kræsen.

    Looking forward to the new images. Would have been an awesome trip.

    1. Flemming Bo Jensen 12 years ago

      Thanks André! It was a trip no words can describe (not that I won't try though).

    awesome trip mate, so much easier when your not traveling with kids!! Bless their little souls. I have seen pics of this before but yours is the best so far, well done.

    1. Flemming Bo Jensen 12 years ago

      I haven't tried it (kids I mean) but yes, travelling alone is ultimate freedom, I love it.

      Very happy you like the Deadvlei photo as there are about 50 more to come from this location 😀

      I was extremely lucky at Deadvlei. Clouds and soft warm light for about 1.5 hours after sunrise where the norm is clear sky and harsh harsh sun. Makes a world of difference.

    1. Flemming Bo Jensen 12 years ago

      Thanks very much Tony and yes – putting everything I can into creating my lifestyle!

    1. Flemming Bo Jensen 12 years ago

      The Deserts of Africa … are my next project and destination. May need to be combined with work in Asia and Australia. I am quite lucky I know.

    Watch us all react to that very effective teaser image! 🙂

    Looking forward to seeing more, as always

    1. Flemming Bo Jensen 12 years ago

      Thanks Charlene, fortunately there is more or I would feel I was cheating my audience by constantly posting teasers telling everyone there's more to come 🙂

    Naturally, a great shot.

    Maybe I will be forever haunted (considering wrinting in danish instead). At the moment, my favorite (dare I write this) picture from the location is this foggy one:….
