It comes slowly, silent and calm. Expected but still unexpected. You can never be prepared for it. It makes everything kind of different – new and strange, but the longing is tremendous. Death.

I feel extremely grateful for all the experiences and knowledge shared throughout the years, my whole life. You have been my inspiration for my wildlife photography from the very beginning. Thank you for all the memories dear grandfather – may you walk in the depths of the forests, on fields of corn and play on your harmonica. Love.
