Cycling is a typical summer activity in Denmark. For several reasons. First of all the country really is very flat, the highest point rising some 170 meters above sea-level. Secondly, the climate is North European temperate, meaning lots of light and not so hot. And thirdly, the country is criss-crossed with cycle paths, narrow country lanes and a great variety of fields, forest and constant ocean views. These three are cycling on the peninsula of Stevns, where the only disadvantage to a cyclist can be a steady breeze blowing in from the Baltic. But that can also be pleasant on a summer day.
I adjusted a slight tilt, removed noise with Neatimage and cropped and resized,

Home for a vacation? ;o) Very Danish shot, not a hill in sight, not even a bump on the road actually. Their expression are great all different but a bit wondering I think. I can almost smell the summer breeze, or maybe it's the open window in the office ;o)
