    I'll try my first picture contribution to this site. I guess it takes a little courage with so many skilled people here.

    I live in a small resort in Denmark. Many tourists during summer, peaceful and quiet during winter.

    Here's a few shots from my village.

    A couple of small shops:

    An old house right opposite my house:

    47987785.

    View over the water:

    47987758.

    A hay field:

    Hope you like them.

  3. No reason to feel intimidated, you are among friends. Your photography is good and I find your images interesting. Your buildings are certainly different from where I live. Thanks for sharing images of the area around your home it is certainly beautiful. :biggrin:

    Thank you all for your very nice comments. I appreciate all of them. Yes, I am fortunately enough to live in a nice part of the world. I just wish it would rain a little less. One of the most beautiful places I've seen is in your part of the world, Gordon. I remember Zion Nationalpark in Utah as really magnificent. It was before digital photography so I only have a lot of slides from that trip. Wonderful light and colors.

    I have a few more from my village on http://www.pbase.com/tojor/my_village. Nothing much, just a few snapshots.

    I think the photos are wonderful, been to Denmark many times. My wife is Danish, born and raised until she was 24. She goes 2 times a year while I go once. We already have a trip planed for next summer, when her brother is getting married. This time I will bring my gear so I can shoot a few pictures, both the wedding and landscapes.

    Again great photos and great name, we named my son Torben.

    Thanks.

    Ron, great name for your son, means the Bear of Thor (Nordic God responsible for thunderstorms). Not a very common name in the US. Where in Denmark are you going?

    I've been to Chicago a couple of times myself. Last time was in 2000. I have friends in Wisconsin.

    Lovely village you live in. I especially love the first shot...Will have to add Denmark to my list of places to visit. Thanks for sharing.
     
  13. Hello Torben -

    Your photos of your beautiful environs are well-done and evocative - the building shots are especially colorful.

    I'll look forward to seeing more photos of your town throughout all the seasons.

    Thank you all. I appreciate your comments. Just wish I had more time on my hand, as digital photography is very time consuming. But it's such a great and rewarding hobby.
