I had an email last night from Horacio concerned about the absence for several months of pewidane, or Peder Winge, our retired locomotive driver from Denmark. Horacio last heard from Peder several months ago and he had confided that he was not a well person.
So it's my sad duty to inform everyone here that Peder passed away on 19th November. I discovered this news on Facebook, where Peder was a Facebook friend. You might be able to see his Facebook wall and various tributes if you are a Facebook member:
Although I never met Peder in person, he was a prolific contributor of inspirational images to us here on DPNow and also on our other site, Four Thirds User. He specialised in abstract and landscape photography, documenting his home town and surrounding areas. We also shared glimpses of his life going back decades through older photographs.
I know many of us here will miss him and I am just so sorry that this news has come so late. You can see his galleries here:
