Photographer's Note

It's been a while since I've posted anything to TrekEarth (I've been super-busy this year!) but time now to start adding a few posts from my travels over the past 12 months. Given that Copenhagen is the centre of the world's attention right now, I thought it would be appropriate to start with one from that city.

This shot was taken in the middle of summer when the colourful architecture of Nyhavn can be seen at its best. There are probably more photographs of Nyhavn on the Internet than any other part of Copenhagen, so with that in mind I looked for an opportunity to shoot something a little different. This old sailing ship provided the perfect opportunity, enabling me to shoot through the rigging to give it a real maritime feel.

I shot this first at 1/200 f/8, but the rigging was not sufficiently out of focus, so I shot it again at 1/800 f/4 to reduce the DOF a little.

For those TEers who may not have been to Nyhavn (and I expect there are only a few), it is a canal not far from the city centre that is lined with bars and gets really packed out in the summer – especially at weekends when it is almost standing room only. See the extra picture in the Workshop (here) for an idea of how busy the bar crowds get.
