Photographer's Note

The photo shows Dyvig Bay near Nordborg on the island of Als in South Jutland with the well known seaside Hotel in the distance. Denmark is a land of coastlines and a nation of seafarers with a long-standing maritime tradition since it is almost completely surrounded by water. No matter where you are in the country, the distance to the sea is short, and the chances of sea-views are pretty fair. There are thousands of kilometres of sandy, stony, quiet and evocative shores and the abundance of fjords, islands and beaches is very attractive to foreign tourists, especially if their homeland is in the middle of a continent.
From a climatic point of view, Denmark is a land of contrasts. The Danish winter is long and dark, wet and humid. But when the first signs of spring appear in March or April, everybody wakes up and crowds in the country and the seaside (like me). Here you can see that especially the shallow waters along the Baltic Sea offer perfect places for those who appreciate the benefits of bathing or angling.
