I am a man from Mårslet, a small town outside Århus. Århus is Denmark’s second largest city. I was born in 1954 in a small town in West Jutland, Ribe.
I was educated both as a teacher and as a landscape gardener.

I have three children, two girls, born in 1988 and 1990, and a boy born in 1998.

After a long period having trouble with my right leg ( resulting in being operated 3 times in my hip) I was lucky to return to work in 2011 as a gardener – and even a real dream job for me: In “Den Gamle By” “The danish Old Town Museum” in Århus.

January 30, 2010 I started this blog.
A couple of years before this – my Nikon FE camera gave up… And I decided to go the digital way. My first digital camera was a Panasonic DMC-FZ8.
Giid inspired and encouraged me to my next step: Going the “blog-way”!
After 1½ years and more than 150 posts – and a lot of nice experiences with my blog and many new blog-friends I was lucky to be able to buy a DSLR camera, a Canon EOS 60D with a 18-135 mm lens.

And why did I decide to make this blog?:

I made this blog to  show  some impressions from my life in Denmark. And my travels around the world.

My language is Danish – but I chose to use English for my blog – to reach world with my pictures. And to get in touch with photo bloggers worldwide – to learn and to share experiences, ideas and inspiration with people in other countries.

I love to travel – and have always had this as my great interest and passion. And through my blog and other bloggers from around the world I travel now – every day!

The purpose of this blog is to tell YOU about one  of my great passions – photography!

The following photos are a little selection of the photos I captured from my region in 2008 and 2009.

They were the first photos published on my blog January 30, 2010. So they – and the comments to them – continues to be here:

Winter in Denmark

Winter in Denmark

Shadows in white

Long winter shadows

Cold and white

……is beautiful


 spring and autumn are better

– and SUMMER is BEST!

Roses in my garden:

Roses in the garden

……biking and walking around my little town:



The colours of all seasons are beautiful –

And so are the light and shadows ……

    Hello Truels

    You’re an excellent photographer – such beautiful images! I also dream of buying a SLR digital camera, but that’ll take quite some saving up, and I still have much to learn about photography.

    I look forward to reading and learning more about your hometown, and about Denmark in general.



    • March 30, 2010 10:03 pm

      Thank you for your nice comments – they made me so happy! And i’ll also be happy when I learn more about taking pictures, blogging – and about all you lovely people around the world who inspires me to go on. Like you!

    Sköna bilder…hälsningar från Finland!

    You have a very inspiring blog – beautiful photographs. Your observation & vision really show a love of nature. The light in Denmark looks crystal clear & pale. It’s something I also notice these days whenever I end up visiting England in winter.


    • October 28, 2010 6:59 pm

      I’m glad you came to visit my blog – were inspired! Hope you come back again 😉

    Ok, you do not need a new camera to take better pictures, you have awesome talent and these photos are great. Your post mentions you were out of work in January, have you found something since?
    I especially love your fallen tree in the water and ice. These all speak to me. Nice work.


    • December 10, 2010 10:03 am

      Thank you so much, Martina 🙂
      No, unfortunately I haven’t got a job – yet. I hope there will be a chance in spring ’11….

    Dear Truels,
    The gum tree is a scribbler gum.
    many years ago we had an exchange student named Sheila Jensen, who married a Claus Truelson and they live in Arhus. Are you related in any way?

    Hej Truels

    Ja, jeg er i gang med at lave en ny blog. Jeg har jo brugt pixelpost, men der er ikke lavet opdateringer til software de sidste to år, og da jeg den anden dag sad og læste inde på pixelposts forum gik det bare endelig op for mig at projektet er dødt. Så jeg tog en dyb indånding og slettet hele databasen 😦 Alle billeder skal skal blive uploadet igen!

    Hav en fantastisk mandag, vejret er så fint her i København 🙂

    Kh, Hanne


    • April 24, 2012 5:29 pm

      Øv, det lyder træls.
      Wordpress fungere fint – selvom jeg ikke bryder mig om, at de lægger reklamer ind på bloggen – uden at man selv kan se det – og altså ved det 😦
      PS: Sorry jeg først så din kommentar nu!

    Been in Arhus and been in the museum (30 yrs ago!!!). Love the white beaches, the countryside etc. Last time in Denmark was in 1999; a year before we moved from Holland to South Africa. We stayed in Copenhagen in Hotel Neptune along the Nyhavn nearby the royal palace. Love Denmark!

    Hej Truels
    Virkelige dejlige billeder fra din færden i vores dejlige land.
    Jeg tager selv en del “øjebliksbilleder ” når jeg dagligt færdes i naturen . Mest til Instagram.
    Men har også som du haft tanker omkring en blog.

    Mvh. Randi Kiel Jensen . Vildbjerg.
