Early dawn May forest 24.5.2020

Early morning audio-video ramble in Brøndbyskoven, May 24. 2020.

I managed to get up and out on location at 4 am, while it was still almost dark (about an hour before sunrise 4:49). When I stepped into the forest everything just went even darker, and the video showed only pitch black. Nevertheless, the birdsong was in full chorus, and it didn’t take long before the forest started to lit up. A smell of bonfire and distant yelling from party people only added to this special morning atmosphere. The lush spring forest attracts many humans and creatures, and is full of activity right now.

We have had a bit of rain yesterday, but otherwise the spring has been overall dry. The vegetation is really growing now, however due to lack of rain, I think the growth is slightly behind compared to previous years.  Now is really a great time to take a quiet walk in the wild.

Nature video report – Urban meadow at dawn, December 22, 2019

Nature video report: Early morning atmosphere from Damhusengen before sunrise, December 22, 2019, 8 am. Damhusengen is an urban meadow next to Damhusøen in the outskirts of Copenhagen. Parts of the area is now left untouched, and the meadow has therefore developed into a valuable wetland for various birds, including gees, gulls and ducks.

Nature video report – November morning by Vestvolden, Nov. 24. 2019

November, 24th 2019 at 8am, Audio-video ramble along Vestvolden, the old 1892 fortification complex west of Copenhagen. The whole scene is set with the massive noise of the motorway next door. Even on a Sunday morning the traffic is very loud.

November has been pretty wet with overall normal temperatures of  5-8C. Very cloudy with only very little sun. This year, we broke the record for highest precipitation in the Autumn (September, October and November) with 349mm.

Quiet November forest, Nov. 2. 2019

Nature video update November 2nd 2019, early morning in Brøndbyskoven, Copenhagen.

Brøndbyskoven quiet November 2 2019

My goal is to try to document the seasons coming and going in my local forest. The place is always changing and all seasons are linked with unique vibes and feelings.

I went with the camera and sound recorder at 7:30 am, which was shortly after sunrise. The days are really getting shorter and everything is fading and getting ready for winter time. But the thinning canopy helps to lighten up inside the forest.

Watch the video with headphones for best experience.

Weather: Heavy overcast, after light rain, 8C, no wind.

Nature video report – Autumn forest, Brøndbyskoven October 26, 2019

Hereby, another October video update from the Brøndbyskoven, Copenhagen, October 26th 2019, 10.30 am.

C0017 _1_2_all_1440_30k.mp4-2019-10-27-09h53m01s150

Its real Autumn now. A pretty windy day, though inside the forest you would only know it from the sound from the treetops and the falling leafs. The colors are now rather yellowish and I think about half of them have fallen. It is going fast now. Lots of fungi in the moist forest bed.

Watch video with headphones for best experience.

Weather: Dry 14C, heavy overcast with a bit windy from south west (which makes the motorway extra loud).
