Nature Update: Vestvolden in winter – 31 January 2021

Nature video update from Vestvolden in Brøndby, January 31, 2021, at around sunrise.
For the first time in 2 years, we finally have some real winter weather, with a bit of snow and ice. It is nice to experience the calmness and how the sounds are completely different. Many lifeforms, plants and insects, are now getting a proper break before the busy growing season.

Still, I can’t wait to visit this place again in late spring when it has turned into a wilderness of green vegetation.

Nature Update: By Vestvolden in December – 4 December 2020

Nature video update from Vestvolden in Brøndby, December 4, 2020. I’m taking the same route as in last post, one month ago. It’s a nice area. The colors have now faded and the trees stand bare, but all the leaves on the ground form a thick layer of thermal insulation. Now we just wait for snow and frost. The nearby motorway is as loud as ever.

Nature video update. Slow-TV. September 20, 2020 at 8:00 am, Bakkeskoven, Copenhagen.

A foggy Sunday morning in September. I am taking a ramble through the wet grasses and plants, all very picturesque in these special lighting conditions. The motorway is just on the other side of the earth berm, but the noise is surprisingly well shielded – just until you get on the top of the hill.

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.

11 C, light wind
