Sojourner

Perhaps I should have saved the title of my previous blog post for this. ‘What the hell am I doing here’ feels very fitting now that I, very surreal, seem to be back in Copenhagen. 84 mind blowing ‘the best days my life’ photography and adventure in Namibia, Western Australia, Malaysia and Borneo have come to a stop. But it is just a temporary stop to get rid of baggage in my life. Sojourning for ever as a travelling photographer. New horizons, new photographs await.

My to-do list is overwhelming with RAW files to develop, getting new web sites, compressing my life and company into a travelling mobile package, prepare for next take off etc. First up is finishing the project for United Plantations and develop their images, so it may be a little while before I get to my own work and new blog posts with new photos.

In the meantime, enjoy this image I shot at Deadvlei in Namibia. Namibia is the photographic highlight of this trip. It is the most beautiful place I have been. I am dead certain it is the most beautiful place in the world! It is also some of the best images I have created.  I dreamed of a whole country of Wide Open Spaces. I dreamed but it was not a dream, it truly exists!

  4. Kære Flemming

    Jeg håber ikke, det krænker din ophavsret, at jeg nu har brugt billedet som baggrund på mit skrivebord! Du skal blot føle dig beæret – for jeg er meget kræsen.

  6. Looking forward to the new images. Would have been an awesome trip.

  7. awesome trip mate, so much easier when your not traveling with kids!! Bless their little souls. I have seen pics of this before but yours is the best so far, well done.

    • I haven’t tried it (kids I mean) but yes, travelling alone is ultimate freedom, I love it.

      Very happy you like the Deadvlei photo as there are about 50 more to come from this location 😀

      I was extremely lucky at Deadvlei. Clouds and soft warm light for about 1.5 hours after sunrise where the norm is clear sky and harsh harsh sun. Makes a world of difference.

  8. stunning image Flemming ! It sounds like you are beginning to establish the lifestyle you want…best of luck 🙂

  9. Watch us all react to that very effective teaser image! 🙂

    Looking forward to seeing more, as always

  10. Hi Flemming, this shot is a cracker. Well done
