September Sun at Sophienholm


The september sun keeps on shining on us ... from Monday to Sunday this week. It is a pleasure to witness the sunrise in the mornings - see the warm light playing on the trees and reflecting on windows when biking to work - and home again. 
Now that it is weekend, one gets a change to spent a whole day outside!


Sophienholm is a former country house by the Lake Bagsværd in the outskirts of Copenhagen. The house and the side buildings belonging to the estate, are being used as an exhibition venue with a restaurant and a café.


The actuel exhibition at Sophielhom is called Himlens fugle, translated freely The Birds in the Sky. This exhibition honors the 50th Anniversary of Fugleværnsfonden, that is a fund protecting birds and nature. I took a few snapshots from the exhibition with my iPhone. I was fond of the aquarelles and the impressive panorama drawings. 


There is the most beautiful park between the main house and the Lake Bagsværd. To the right from the house you'll find an impressive greenhouse with seasonal flowers. 

I enjoyed the possibility of taking photos with my DSLR - adjusting the settings using manual mode. We're approaching the season, when the days are getting shorter - and the natural light is available only during the day, when you're at work. 
So it is in the weekends, one gets a change to make the most out of light and photography.


Burk Uzzle says "Photography is a love affair with life." It is about seeing and noticing, about moods, stories, relations, moments ... as much as it is about light and shadows and frames ... 

Well, my analytic mind is playing a trick on me, starting to peel with the words and their mening - What is love? As I see it, love is not just a feeling, but often an act of your will - where you choose to love and show it with concrete actions - to a person, to yourself or in relation to something else. In that sense photography - like any other hobby - asks for diligent training, by a learning process with getting information and practicing with trial-and-error - as well seeking inspiration and putting the camera down ...






We walked slowly and just enjoyed the fresh air ... talking and finding a nice spot to sit every now and then. 
A lovely afternoon with my husband and sister-in-law. 


... With September sun greetings,
Nina

  1. Photography is a love affair with life....I like that. I guess I've had one since winning my first brownie camera when in grade school. I also like you analysis of Love. So simple, yet complex in many ways to decipher when real. My love of photography though has always been real from capturing the sky just with random shots when young to trying to get better as I age.

    Don't you just love how the sunlight plays and sparkles on the water on a beautiful day as with your first photo through the trees. Sometimes on a peaceful day, it actually tears at the heart strings.

    Lovely post. :)

  2. It's wonderful seeing fall through your lens as you meander with family. I love the light filtering in the first leaf photo. Photography allows us to be mindful of the moment, something I try to practice daily.

    I love this month of September and the beauty it can bring.

    Enjoy these last few days of our ninth month, and I hope the sun keeps shining a little longer.

    All the best Jan
