'tis the season...

Too much lamp oil :-) oh well, no one was harmed, and the coals were fine after a while as usual.

From May till August barbequing is very popular on mild, warm or even hot days. Mostly Danes prepare sausages, ribs and the occasional steak and chicken legs. Corn and bread is often done on the BBQ as well. On the side we serve mixed salad and or potato salad (cooked peeled potatoes in a creme fraiche dressing).

A common sight in early spring. The snowdrop is the first flower to appear.

Moon in daylight

The moon is always a popular object to photograph. Using my 200 mm zoom lens it is possible to get at least some detail, however it is almost impossible to avoid shaking. My next lens should have anti-shake, vibration reduction, image stabilizer, or whatever the companies decide to call to it.
The green lines in the picture is electric wiring. I used manual focus, because auto-focus simply can not figure out what to focus on.

Last years apples

The delicious fruit we all can grow in Denmark. This is a rather early (pre-mature) specimen, but later they got bigger and plentyful. Apples are good for freezing, making specialties (like apple pork, danish: æbleflæsk, essentially sliced pork fried, with onions and apple, served warm on dark bread).
Apples are usually ready in September.
