‘One of the very few ‘family portraits’, because I always stand behind the camera. About one hour before sunset my wife and children were playing in the backyard of the farm where we stayed overnight. I noticed the long shadows, then I positioned myself in front of the sun and made this picture.’

‘I like the story behind this picture and the emotions in it… in a few years it will remind me of the fun summer holiday in Denmark 2017. With a picture like this, technical things such as sharpness, vignetting are not important.’
