Photographer's Note

For me the best part of early summer in Denmark is the smell of the air by the sea; enjoying every single minute and hour of sunshine and warmth that comes my way.
The Danish weather is regulated by the country's position on the edge of the continent of Europe close to large sea areas. In the light summer months of June to August, the average daytime temperature soars up to comfortable 19ºC – ideal weather conditions for outdoor activities. The photo shows the old fishing village of Brunsnæs at Flensborg Fjord in South Jutland where a lonely angler was trying to catch garfish. Almost one in five grown-up Danes is angling thus making angling one of the most popular spare-time activities in Denmark. However the number of anglers in Denmark is not as high as in Finland or Sweden, but higher than in Holland and Germany. Many men pursue this sport as an individual activity, often fishing on their own in remote locations. Angling is a kind of Yoga for men: to tempt a wary fish to take the bait, it is important to avoid unnecessary physical movements, just as it is when practising yoga.
