Photographer's Note

Bornholm is the island full of contrasts. In the north it is dominated by spectacular rocky coasts, deep quarries and waterfalls. In the south you can see kilometres of white sandy beaches while in the centre there are beautiful beech forests with forest lakes. The route round the Hammer Promontory is one of the most spectacular trails I have seen - but in fact is not an easy one. Before the trip remember your water bottle because the direct sunlight is everywhere here. Hammeren rises 82 metres above the Baltic Sea and is separated from the rest of the island by a rift valley with Hammerso Lake at the bottom. This is a lovely place for taking photos. Sheep and goats graze the area as part of efforts to recreate the predominant heath landscape and open up the view to Hammershus - Northern Europe's biggest castle ruin. The North is not so "cold" as it sounds. Landscape is dominated by the beautiful warm colours which make this place real paradise for painters.
