Photographer's Note

There are very few fishing ports left on the east coast of Denmark, facing the Baltic Sea. The reason is that the Baltic is slowly becoming empty of sufficient fish to make it worthwhile for the fishermen to try and make a living there. On top of that a moratorium on cod has now finally been decided, which will give at least the cod a chance to regenerate. But it forces the fishermen to stay at home.
This is one of the few active ports left - the port of Rodvig. And in summer it is also a very active pleasure port, with a big yacht marina, because of the good location just 50 km south of Copenhagen.
What you see here is part of the industrial port, with a few tourist visitors in between the fishing boats. The visitors come primarily from Germany and Sweden.
I only resized and sharpened slightly.
