The rainbow evening

I can´t really remember last time I experienced a rainbow like this monday. We had a family gathering at our holiday house, and on our way back home this beautiful rainbow appeared.

We did almost lost the ferry…

First I did use a Sony RX100 IV, but unfortunately the lens was not wide enough. After some running and gunning I took up my Canon 5D MarkIII with a 16mm wide lens.

This is the church of Åram. Here I use the Sony camera.


Ferga på Åram DSC00516

The ferry we took from Åram to Larsnes. Still using the Sony camera.

Here I am on board the ferry. Actually is was as yellow/orange as this. Now I use the Canon fullformat camera with the wide lens. I´m very happy I had it in my car.. This picture was impossible with the small Sony camera.


Andre vegen DSC00526

This was the scenery when turning the camera all the way around.


regnboge 2_V1A6876

When arriving further into the fjord, a different light appeared. Not as yellow as earlier. And we still see the second rainbow.

Getting closer to Larsnes. Again I turned the camera all around.


Regnboge 3 _V1A6887

This is Larsnes, my hometown. Nice with the rainbow all around;-)


Regnboge 4 _V1A6902

Of course I could not stop photographing as long as the rainbow followed me. Here I have moved to Gjøneset. The rainbow ends where I photographed the first photos earlier.

China, Beijing

Earlier this month I travelled to Beijing for making a film about the paper clip artist Karen Bit Vejle. Her mission was to hold a big exhibition in Today Art Museum in Beijing. And my team in Tindefilm was there to make a documentary about her journey in China. The film will be ready in september next year, it will be a visual insight in Karen Bit Vejle´s life and artistic performance.

Here is some photos from our 14 days trip to China:

This was my photo gear suitcase. I tried to bring as litle as possible because we were travelling on tourist visum, and we didn´t want too much attention. I mostly used my Canon 5D MarkIII, but had also a BlackMagic pocket cinema camera as backup. Fantastic to use theese small cameras, and still work as a pro:-)

Rainy under the skies..

On Tiananmen Square we met chineese people that wanted to greet us, nice people.
