Photographer's Note

Kongens Lyngby is a small city on the north edge of the Copenhagen metropolitan area. It is home to the Technical University of Denmark and lies within commuting distance of downtown Copenhagen. The population is about 50,000. A set of three lakes lie to the west: Lyngby Sø, Bagsvaerd Sø, and Furesø. The first of these is immediately to the west of Lyngby and one can enjoy a pleasant, scenic walk or cycle around it.

The Lyngby Sø drains to the Øresund, the strait that separates Denmark from Sweden. It is roughly ten km from the Sø to the coast. The river is dammed in places to form ponds and on these ponds long ago mills were established. This setting is one of the early locales for industrialization in Denmark, well ahead of the invention of the steam engine.

The mill ponds are still in existence. The entire waterway from the Lyngby Sø to the Øresund is bordered by a greenbelt with multiuse trails that allow for biking and hiking. In Danish, the area is called Mølleådalen. I don't know how to translate that.

This photo was shot from along the Mølleådalen, near the small town of Brede on the outskirts of Lyngby about halfway between the Lyngby Sø and the Øresund.
