15th place in "Picture of the month" for December 2008 at

Theme: The Countryside (På landet)

We were on our way back to Arundel from a walk along the river Arun in West Sussex when this man came towards us. I turned around and got a few shots until the dog stopped, turned around and started staring at me with an evil eye.

There is no harm in asking

One day this autumn I saw this man sitting on a bench. I found it fantastic how the colours of his clothes matched the leaves on the grass behind him. He noticed that I was staring. I turned back and told him what I saw with the autumn colours, and would it be ok if I took a picture?

He smiled and said yes, of course. Then he suggested I should call the picture "Livets Høst" which translates to Autumn of Life. So that is how I got the picture and how the picture got its name.

It turned out he lived around the corner and smiled when I came by before Christmas with one copy for him and one for his daughter.

I did get an award for this image.There is no harm in asking.

Breaking the Surface

This is taken from above, just before she is breaking the surface. The image is shot on a boat holiday in Turkey. Kind of a bittersweet memory- the same group of women were on the same boat on the very same date in 2001.
