Tall Ships Races 2019

In July 2019 my home town Fredrikstad had the pleasure of receiving a big number of proud, tall and beautiful ships. As being one of the hosts for the traditional Tall Ships Race. You can read about this race / show in Wikipedia (starts in Norwegian but other languages can be selected in the left […]

Dødsing (Death Diving) in Fredrikstad

In June 2019 -in connection to the ‘Glomma Festival’ -one of the attractions was a Death-diving (dødsing) show -from the pedestrian bridge over the river Glomma. Death diving was -as far as I know -‘invented’ in Norway some years ago -and looks both crazy and dangerous. But it’s not they say -when done right.  Young […]

Action in Fredrikstad

On June 27 2019 our military forces had a fascinating drill just above my head so to say -where I live.. With my fine super zoom camera I got a few nice shots of the choppers and soldiers showing us that they are well prepared ) The album

Crete in May 2019

Onsøy; Old train station and some lovely decay near by

One day in the end of March 2019 I decided to visit the old, abandoned train station in Onsøy, just outside Fredrikstad. And what do you know! I also discovered this lovely decay from some old garage or something.. some sort of industry it have used to be. A real lucky visit! The albums are […]

Oldies: Luxembourg & Metz

Oldies -but goodies! ) Added an album today that I simply ‘discovered’ all over again when browsing my archive. A trip back in 2002 -to Luxembourg -and Metz in France. Shot with my first Canon -that I really loved those days! -Powershot S100.   Not the best technical work I’ve done -almost 20 years go […]

A misty day around the Kråkerøy bridge – Fredrikstad

On February 27 I went for a small walk in the mist -close to where I live in Fredrikstad actually -in the area around the bride over to Kråkerøy. We locals call this bridge ‘Kråkerøybrua’ -and is a Bascule bridge. The operating hut you see is now empty though.. This bridge and one more in […]

New album; Gran Canaria 2019

From my holiday Jan 2019 -mostly in Puerto Rico and Arguineguin.  The places are so well known to me now as I’ve been there several times -but a few shots there will be each time anyway -I hope! )
