The Gallery: Light

Taken at Torekov, November 2007

I took this picture in November 2007, shortly before Husband and I moved to Sweden.

Three of us – two close friends from Copenhagen and I – went for a few days to stay at Torekov Hotell in southern Sweden to relax, enjoy some spa treatments and have a few laughs.

Sadly, just over a year after this picture was taken, and three years ago this week, one of these wonderful, kind-hearted girls died from cancer, just a few months after giving birth to her first child. She remains in our thoughts and our hearts.

    Cancer is such a terrible disease and can strike so suddenly and quickly.

    • Yes, it is a special light, isn’t it? They say that it is best in Skagen, but in seven years in Denmark, I never managed to make it there…
      It was a complete fluke that the photo came out this well – I was just snapping and when I downloaded the photos, there this one was, and I just loved it.

  5. Thank you all for your kind comments. I am so grateful that I have this photo to remind me of her.

    • Oh, Sarah, so sorry to hear that about your friend. It is terrible. And the worst is that everyone seems to know at least one person affected by cancer. It really is heartbreaking.

    • Thanks, Jenny. It is one of my favourite pictures. There is something very peaceful about it.

  7. That’s a beautiful picture but a very sad story. I am so sorry for your loss and that of your friend’s family.
