Since the beginning of time, the sea has always attracted people and the sea is very important to Denmark, both for climate, culture and of course for fishing. Denmark’s coastline measures some 7400 km so there's never far to the sea. For the angler, it is a paradise that always offers a challenge and the chance to catch something bigger and smarter. Whether it is the open coast, a fjord or an estuary, all locations will provide excellent saltwater conditions at any time of the year with a chance of catching and landing for example Europe’s strongest sea trout.
The photo shows Dyvig Bay on the island of Als in South Jutland. The red building in the distance is the well known Dyvig Badehotel. Characterised by an extensive coastline and some of Denmark's most attractive beaches the island of Als also offers some of Denmark's best fishing spots.
It is commonly agreed that recreational fishing must be recognized as one of the best therapeutics against the increasing stress that today's society charges upon man. It is a therapy with respect to human health, because there is nothing like being on the water. When you are on the water, the cares of the world just pass you by. You can meet nature as well as understand the language of nature by listening to the sound of water, birds and the cool breeze.

Whether these people got any fish is an open question, but in any case they got themselves a lot of fresh air, and some exercise (unless their car was parked very close). The uneven coastline is very nice and there are some fine buildings across the bay, from what I can figure out. The weather looks remarkably good for this time of the year.
Kind regards, and I hope you will have a good year in 2014.

For once the sun seems to be shining:-) The light is very attractive, especially across the foreground reeds. Two great ways of getting some fresh air after the festivities, going fishing and taking photographs in the outdoors. All the best for 2014!

a wonderful picture and such a good illustration to your notes. Not only the sea but also the coastal landscape with its warm wintry colours, evoke the sense of isolation and calmness craved by amateur fishermen. The two men proceeding into the frame surely appreciate these qualities and the chance this place offers them to enjoy their hobby. I love the natural light, colours and textures. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a very happy year with health, love and joy!

A very pleasant way to spend a day! I notice that at least one of them is fly fishing, so I assume they are trying to catch some sea trout. A beautifully colour coordinated picture with just the brownish colours of the vegetations against the blue colours of the water and the sky. A well composed picture too, with a clear diagonal through the scene.

Good evening Harriet,
I suspect you were in an ambush set to catch the two anglers here... my humor only, hope you are not offended.
Good clear view along the shore, winter grey tone over the forest on far side, and yet, there is a palace on the waterfront seen so well in contrast.
Best wishes for the new year,

Bonsoir, chère Harriet,
Un lieu très apprécié des pêcheurs, il suffit de bien se couvrir et aimer la nature à l'état pur.
Un cadrage réalisé avec méthode.
Belle lumière générale.
Je te présente, chère Harriet, mes meilleurs voeux pour l'année 2014.

A rather tranquil and somewhat picturesque seaside with those two hopefuls on the banks making their way to catch their dinner, a great way to spend a day fishing. Must try fishing sometime, although on second thoughts maybe not, I'm a little squeamish. It's lovely image so very well composed with tremendous foreground detail and range of colours and I love the deep blue water so well set off in the environment. Excellent capture, wonderfully interesting and colourful photo. Congrats.
Wishing a You and Yours the Very Best for 2014

Das wäre zwar nichts für mich, aber Du hast die Stimmung beim Angeln wunderbar eingefangen. Die Herren begeben sich in die Stille, an einen abgelegenen Ort, wo niemand stört. Dieser Eindruck wird auch durch das Fehlen jeglicher intensiver Farbe im Bild verstärkt - und durch das Ried, das sie teilweise schon "verschluckt".
Da könnte ich mir übrigens einen Kuraufenthalt gut vorstellen ... ;-)
Grüße aus dem immer noch schneefreien Siegerland!

Nice winter light and good contrast of colors.
I like the building in bg.

Bel endroit pour les pêcheurs, teintes de saison des herbes hautes contre le bleu de l'eau, la vue au loin sur hôtel rouge sous une douce lumière, intéressante note
Je vous souhaite une bonne et heureuse année 2014

A nice peaceful image that compliments the serenity of going fishing that you describe in your note. I like the burnt winter colours of the vegetation very much and the nice warm light.
