2014 – A Year of Travel In 65 Black and White Photographs

As 2014 comes to a close it is time to look back over the year and to highlight some of my favorite photography. In 2014 I traveled less far-afield than during previous years but simultaneously spent more time familiarizing myself with the intimacies and breadth of texture present within Denmark. The image above is of the abandoned lighthouse at Rubjerg Knude in North Western Jutland. Upon the sand berm the individual posing is my younger brother. One of my goals this year was to work on my portrait photography and to add people into some of my shots. Hopefully you enjoy the result!

Friday’s Weekly Travel Photo – Royal Gardens in Denmark

Frederiksborg Castle and Gardens

Located in the heart of the Danish city of Hillerød, the Frederiksborg Palatial complex and gardens offer a wonderful place to relax on a sunny Danish day.  I strongly suggest enjoying a delicious ice cream or afternoon picnic as part of your visit. The Palace sits on a small island in the middle of a large lake, while the gardens sprawl beautifully across the countryside immediately behind the castle. In addition to a variety of blooming flowers the gardens also feature beautifully patterned hedges, carefully manicured and lovingly nurtured.  Frederiksborg palace is hands down my favorite palace in Denmark, and one which I highly suggest exploring!
