A few years back I lived and worked in Denmark, and had the good fortune to live around the corner from this lake in Hørsholm, a suburb to the north of Copenhagen. Then, I used to walk around the church and enjoy the peace and tranquility, nowadays I’d probably go into the church. But this part of Denmark was generally a very peaceful place to be and in winter all you can smell in the afternoon and evenings is the wood smoke.
The views at all times of the year were sublime, and I remember a day when it was a heavy snowstorm, so I went out for a walk around the lake. Half way around, the storm stopped and the clouds parted and the sun came out. My rooms weren’t far, so I ran back to grab my camera and then raced back before the clouds closed up and it start snowing. I went through a roll of film, 110 because i was using a medium format camera at the time, which weighed a ton especially as it had to be put on a tripod. But, it was worth the effort. It’s a favourite contact sheet that is colourful to look at.
Parts of the lake were still frozen but the reflections in the lake made the pictures. Despite it blowing just a short time earlier was now completely still.
