Photographer's Note

Please note we got daylight-saving hours here, posted at the Birthday of Hans Christian Andersen.

Alternative title – “The Tinder-Box” (Fyrtøjet in Danish)
The fairytale of the Tinderbox was one the first from H. C. Andersen and one, which made him famous.

The story about a solider, which asked by a witch to climb down a hollow willow (very much like the one on the photo) and down there can he find all the riches he could ask for- and he should:
“Only promise to bring me an old tinder-box, which my grandmother left behind the last time she went down there”.

Well perhaps should you read the true story here

More info about this area and the church in the background can be found here.
