Nordic Race 1, Amager Beach 2014

Karin Ott

Looking at the previous images from the Nature Day by the beach a few weeks ago, the place seemed pretty empty. This just goes to show how selectively you can photograph depending on what story you want to tell.

Walking just a few hundred meters the beach was packed with people running a 5 km. extreme race. The paper had only asked me to cover the Nature Day but I couldn’t pass up the other opportunity – greatly appreciated by the editor…

Nature Day 2, Amager Beach 2014

On this Sunday several local organisations were hosting a nature event by the beach. Yesterday’s image showed a young girl all eager to collect stones on the beach and talk about them afterwards. Reality was it was hard for me to find anyone to photograph at all as it had been pouring down all morning.

I had dragged my own daughter along but she was not about to go collect any stones. Instead one of the sweet volunteers showed her a game with stones even my mother played when she was a child.

I usually let images for my blog sit for up to six months but every once in a while I have created images for other uses, mostly my work for the local paper, that I want to share and is ready to be launched right away.

Here we go with a series of images taken at Amager Beach two weeks ago by request of the paper.
