In late April 2018 I visited Georgia in the Caucasus with my dad Tomas Lundqvist and my friend Edwin Sahlin. We spent most of the time around Kazbegi/Stepantsminda in northern Georgia, close to the Russian border, but also visited Ananuri, Bazaleti Lake and the steppe south of Tbilisi on our last day before flying home.
A selection of images of common crane, one of the largest birds of Europe. The vast majority of the images were taken at Easter this year at Lake Hornborgasjön in the Västergötland region of Sweden – though a handful are from my home region of Småland.
The land of mountains and mysteries, yaks and yetis, rhinos and rikshaws. Despite leading very Spartan lives, often in extreme poverty, the people of Nepal are some of the most joyful people you will ever meet. This album is a tribute to the beautiful and diverse people of Nepal. A mix of pictures from Kathmandu's bustling streets, the Terai lowlands, and remote Himalayan villages.
In late May 2020, I went on a ten-day road trip to Lappland, the northernmost region of Sweden. I spent most of the time in three different places – Båtsjaur, Ammarnäs and Stekenjokk – but also made numerous stops along the roads where the habitat looked interesting and when I encountered cool birds.
A selection of images from a combined nature and culture trip I co-led for the travel agency Avifauna Nature Tours in June–July 2017. We spent several days on different islands in the beautiful Outer Hebrides and a couple of days on the dramatic Isle of Skye. We went on a number of boat trips and visited several cultural sites and whisky distilleries.
The Småland region of southern Sweden is a diverse region. It offers a myriad of freshwater lakes, small-scale agriculture, vast expanses of both coniferous and deciduous forests, and a coastline with an archipelago. It also offers greatly varying seasons where temperatures range from +30°C to –20°C.
In late April and early May this year (2019), I visited the island of Helgoland off the German North Sea coast with my friend Edwin Sahlin. After returning to the mainland, we also spent a day at a few different places along the Wattenmeer coast of northernmost Germany.
A selection of images from a two-week trip to the northern parts of Senegal in West Africa – mainly the areas around l'île de Kousmar and Kaolack, and Parc National des Oiseaux du Djoudj, close to the Mauritanian border. We also visited Parc National des Îles de la Madeleine, just off the coast of Dakar.
Every dawn during spring, the male black grouse gather at the lekking arena. The males with their burning-red eyebrows and their purple-glozzy plumage fight and put on their very best displays. The females come to watch and decide who will be the winner. The pictures in the story were taken in the deep forests of Småland during four different spring seasons.
