Winter finally over

Close to the center of Copenhagen is a beautiful park named “Kongens Have” – The Kings Garden. Tha park surrounds a small Castle, Rosenborg.
These pictures are from a walk through Copenhagen late in the afternoon in February this year.
Whoever is living in the old houses adjacent to the park, they must have the most beautiful view over The Kings Garden.

My winter

Scott Thomas has given us his 23rd assignment: Winter.
I’ll write very short about my winter. Acording to the calendar, it covers December, January and February. I think it starts in the beginning of November when I have to leave home early in the morning, long before sunrise, and ends in the middle of March. These dark, cold and wet months is what we call winter. Personally I’m not very fond of it!
After the dark n wet start we usually get frost and snow. Not that I like snow – is has to be removed from the pathways. But the snow gives LIGHT. Bright light in the daytime and enough light at night for seeing outside.
Let me show you a couple of images from my local area:



And if the light isn’t enough to cheer me up, there’s the grandchildren. Fortunately I just have a picture so that you can see the two youngest members of the family:

The wood through the year

Once upon a time Scott Thomas wrote out an assignment “Four Seasons 2011”
The subject for this contribution is my gate to the wood. On this litte bench my wife and sat waiting for the real-estate broker. I immediately fell in love with this place. This view is now gone. The tree to the right fell because the bark was hurt by some machine. The little bench was pulled out of the ground and disappeared after a short time.
For quite some time I frequently took pictures here when I took a walk in the forest.
I do miss this view.
The order of the pictures is random.
