  • Brotårnets Øje

    Det grønne kobbertårn til Knippelsbro i Københavns havn.

  • On the way home through the Theatre

    This passage goes under the connection between the old and the new stage of The Royal Danish Theater (Det Kongelige Teater) in Copenhagen. In 1931, the new stage opened, but it had several impractical constructions, like the audio studio wasn't sound isolated. It remained problematic until it was closed in 2008.

    I just got this one delivered - number 1 of 30. I can't wait to exhibit it. It is the old waiting room for the trams in Copenhagen.

  • The Astoria Hotel near Copenhagen Central Station. I love this building, but I can also understand why people find it hard to love it. I guess it is one of those buildings, that either you love it or you hate it, and probably no in-betweens.

    Dramatic versus empty. You rarely find Copenhagen Central Station this empty.

  • Rubjergknude lighthouse

    Rubjergknude light house is no longer in service. It is half covered in a sand dune. There used to be a cafe only a few years ago, but the pressure from the sand, broke the house. You can still see the remains of it. --Jacob Surland Art sale as limited prints. Photo by Jacob Surland, Licensed Creative Commons non-commercial v4.0. No Derivative Work. Protected by

It leaves one with a massive impression, not because it's particularly beautiful, because it isn't, but yet, it fascinates. It used to be the tallest building in Rome.

  • Pantheon

    This photo of the fountain in front of Pantheon is one of my favorites, from my trip to Rome. At first I didn't see it, but when I got close, this acid green color showed up. I when a bit closer, and I could see there was a shape in the water, and I went even closer to get this. And believe me, that color is as good as straight out of the camera.

  • The Strip by Night

    Las Vegas the never sleeping city. Las Vegas, a city in the middle of Nevada Desert far from everything and incredible hot. One could wonder why on earth a city having a population of 2 million people lies in the middle of the desert. The answer goes all the way back to the Spanish Trail, an old trade route going from California to Santa Fe around Grand Canyon. And Las Vegas had water and became a natural place to pass. Later the casinos and the mafia did their part to increase the population. Photo by: Jacob Surland,

  • Scoop the Shard

    The scoop in London offers many interesting compositions. In this photo, I included the Shard, tallest building in Europe. I have got a weak spot for glass buildings at night. I think they look awesome. On this particular night, there is a light drizzle. A wet surface affects how the colors and light shows. It is not wet enough for reflections, but enough to make the colors deeper and darker. --Jacob Surland Art sale as limited prints. Photo by Jacob Surland. Protected by

  • Kastrup Søbad

    This one I have had on my todo list for quite a while. It's an open air pool in the sea. I shot this at a 79 seconds exposure, using my Lee little stopper.
