Four seasons

December 28, 2011

Spring – April

Summer – June

Autumn – October

Winter – December

This is my contribution to Scott Thomas’ Assignment “Four seasons”. The photos are captured at Vilhelmsborg Allé east of my hometown, Mårslet.

This is one of my (many!) favorite spots around here.

The first three photos are taken toward the west (where the manor farm buildings and the riding center is), the last in the opposite direction toward the east (where the forest is).

If you would like to see more photos from Vilhelmsborg, you can visit these entries:

    Oh lovely photos. What a spectacular location, beautifully captured.

    Beautiful! I couldn’t pick a favorite season for a walk down this road


    • January 1, 2012 10:40 pm

      I agree, it’s beautiful in all 4 seasons. But most pleasant during the summer!

    It’s wonderful to see the changing seasons impact on this beautiful avenue of trees. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas.


    • January 1, 2012 10:42 pm

      We had, thank you. I hope you had a lovely Christmas – and a Happy New Year down there in the summer! 😉

    Nice shots Truels! We should be so happy that we have 4 seasons in Europe 😉
    I posted your old Music-Suggestion 😉


    • January 1, 2012 10:44 pm

      Thanks for commenting – and following here. I enjoy listening to some of your music from around the world during writing and reading blogs 🙂

    Nicely done, Truels! As much as I love the summer time, I am drawn to your winter shot. The contrast of white against the bright blue sky is just beautiful.


  9. December 29, 2011 1:26 pm

    The Autumn and Winter shots are such a beautiful contrast. What a pretty view!


  10. December 29, 2011 2:13 pm

    I love photos like this! And to do it all four seasons. Perfect, Truels!


  11. December 29, 2011 4:53 pm

    That is a wonderful place for a walk. I can see the appeal year-round, but especially admire the frosted trees on a sunny winter day. I want to grab my mittens and head out.


    • January 1, 2012 10:49 pm

      Those “white” winters, that we also had for a change the last two years, – they are great for photographing. Equipped with lots of clothes 🙂

    Det er sjovt, at der ikke er særlig stor forskel på forår og sommer, men at man alligevel så tydeligt på billedet kan se, hvad der er hvad. Godt fanget, far 🙂


    • January 1, 2012 10:50 pm

      Tak skal du ha’, Lisbeth. Det er SÅ dejligt, at du gider at kommentere ind imellem her!!!

    Beautiful. Well done Truels. I love all Your photos.

    Happy New year 2012 to You and Yours!


    • January 1, 2012 10:51 pm

      I wish you and your family a Happy New Year too! I guess it’d WHITE up in finland?!!!


  14. December 31, 2011 4:40 pm

    Truels, I love the four seasons. I’ve attempted that but seem to miss a season. Well done. Happy New Year to you and your family!

    I want to take a horse drawn sleigh down that winter road. Thanks for participating, Truels! You and Carsten paint such a different view of Europe for me. Never considered how woodsie it is.


    • January 1, 2012 11:04 pm

      If you take that horse drawn sleigh down this road, you can go back and tell that you made ​​as Hans Christian Andersen did many times when he visited the landlord family here! (I told about this in my post “My Hometown History”)
      Regarding the forests here – the state and municipalities have in the recent decades done much to increase the forest area in Denmark.
      The forest area is now 13% of land area, the goal is to reach 20 to 25% in the next decades.


  16. December 31, 2011 7:26 pm

    Just wishing you a happy new year! All the best in 2012! 🙂


    • January 1, 2012 11:05 pm

      I wish the same to you, I look forward to follow your blog in 2012!!


  17. January 1, 2012 7:24 am

    Absolutely stunning coverage of the seasons by your fabulous photography! A great 2012 to you!!


    • January 1, 2012 11:06 pm

      Oh, thank you SO much for your NICE comments! I wish the best for you in 2012!


  18. January 2, 2012 2:03 pm

    Truels, you nailed this one! Same object, but yet so different throughout each season. I cannot choose a favourite photo, because all seasons have their thing going on 🙂

    Happy New Year!


    • January 3, 2012 7:51 pm

      Thank you for your nice comment! Happy New Year to you too. When are you posting more of your (nice) photos on your blog again?!

    4 Paradise in a path !
    Are you a magician ?


    • January 3, 2012 7:53 pm

      I would love to be magician, but I can’t compete with Mother Nature, so I let her do (most of) the work!


  20. January 3, 2012 11:41 am

    What a beautiful collection of photos!

      Thanks for stopping by – and my best wishes for you too 🙂

    How did I miss this gorgeous allée ? I understand why this is one of your favourite places in your area. Any Season brings out the best of it… and your pictures do too, of course ! Brilliant participation, truels. Isn’t it wonderful to see the changes in nature along the year ? Another thought to add to my list of gratefulness 😉 thanks truels.


    • January 13, 2012 10:50 pm

      – – nature – and all its changing wonders will be no. 1 on my list too. I have in all my life used plenty of time in nature whereever I was, and my experiences there have helped me through many problems and crises – and made me happy and amazing experiences alone or with good friends and family for 57 years (almost )…..


      • January 14, 2012 7:28 pm

        Strange and good that you should mention your happy experiences in nature, truels. Last night I read a chapter of one of Eckhart Tolle’s books: “The Art of Calmness”. Just a few words in his chapter about nature :”As you are walking in nature, give it respect in being fully present. Be calm. Look at it. Listen to it. Each animal or vegetal is just “itself”. Contemplating nature can liberate you from your ego, this great trouble maker”. Isn’t it well said ? A great little book I am enjoying thoroughly.


        • January 16, 2012 6:35 pm

          I know Eckhart Trolle. And I think his ideas and philosophy are so great. And have often benefited from the wisdom of those words, that you quote :-)…..
          Thank you, Isa, for your kind comments – and for drawing attention to Eckhart Trolle.
