Amagergade – Christianshavn

I spent a couple of days in Copenhagen this summer. Unfortunately it were intensely pouring down most of the time, so the camera stayed in my backpack most of the time. We did have a couple of hours on the second day without rain, so we went to Christianshavn to look at all the beautiful old buildings there. This street is Amagergade, a street that has been made famous in Denmark because an old seventies tv-show “The House in Christianshavn” were shot and took place here.

Sweet summer memories

A picture from a great day at the beach with my family. My daughter Laura wanted to catch some “fish” (seaweed) and the net just HAD to be pink. While she were relaxing a bit I took this picture.

Taken with my EOS 60d and Tamron 17-50mm lens.

Dried fish

The local fishermen in Hals have these small wooden sheds, where they stay in the summertime, when they are not out fishing. Outside one of the sheds I found all these dried fish. The fishermen didn’t mind me taking photos as long as they didn’t appear in the shots 🙂

Western honey bee

(Apis mellifera)
This is the last shot in my mini-set of insects, but I think I will keep on trying to take pictures of these amazing little creatures.

This picture were taken with my EOS 60D with 55-250mm lens attached and using flash, as it were rather cloudy.
