Last weekend my boyfriend and I spent the weekend in Copenhagen. We had a fab weekend, enjoying cycling around the city on the Saturday in glorious sunshine and taking in the sights. A slightly colder and cloudier Sunday saw us take shelter in Rosenborg Castle and a cosy coffee shop before our flight home. We enjoyed wonderful food, especially at Gorilla in which we had a 10-course tasting menu and an intriguing bottle of wine. It’s a great city to explore and here are some of my photos from our city break.

A terrifying climb to the top – worth it for the view? Still not sure … taken from the top of Church of Our Saviour, Copenhagen
Øresund Bridge in the distance – the bridge to Sweden

We also visited the Copenhagen Botanic Garden so look out for another post to follow soon with my photos of the plants in their amazing glasshouses!
Once again this year I headed to the Kew Orchids Festival, this is the third year in a row that I’ve gone and it’s becoming a bit of a tradition. I went to the late event which was great with a brilliant atmosphere and stunning displays however the lighting wasn’t very conducive to me taking photos (or actually admiring many of the stunning displays in person!). It’s probably best to go during the day if you actually want to study the intricacies of these stunning plants.
But here’s a selection of photos I took on the night.
I would have liked to have the opportunity to take some more macro shots of the orchids but the lighting was not on my side so unfortunately most of my shots aren’t usable! A lesson learnt – and a different aspect of my photography to work on.
