Photographer's Note

Denmark was very much shaped by the "recent" iceages that rolled over the country and created the hills and fjords and generally flat land. But this particular piece of chalk cliff (which is altogether 14 km long)south of Copenhagen is 65 million years old. It makes you feel appropriately small when you sit in your boat fishing for cod, not catching any, and deciding to take another picture of something that was there at the time of the dinosaurs.
The cliff is at this point only about 10 meters tall and at its highest point 14 meters.
