Photographer's Note

This is the second shot from my old Denmark photo i would like to show.
it is a view of the Limfjord in the north-west of Denmark.

As the first one scanned with a CanoScan FB630U and some PP down with Photoshop PS and NeatImage.

he Limfjord (in Danish: Limfjorden) is a shallow sound
in Denmark that separates the island of Vendsyssel-Thy
from the rest of Jutland Peninsula. It extends from
Thyborøn Canal on the North Sea to Hals on the
Kattegat. It is approximately 180 kilometres long and
of an irregular shape with several bays, narrowings,
and islands, most notably Mors. It is deepest at
Hvalpsund (24 metres). Its main port is Aalborg (the
preferred official spelling has been Ålborg since the
Danish spelling reform of 1948 This is disputed since
Aalborg is excepted from that reform and continues to
prefer spelling with tha Aa ), where a railway and a
road bridge are built across Limfjorden to Nørresundby,
while motorway E45 passes it through a tunnel to the

Limfjorden was first connected with the North sea on
February 3, 1825 when a flood pierced an opening, the
so-called Agger Canal, in the north of a 13 km long and
less than 1 km wide isthmus, the Agger Tange. This
isthmus had until then linked Vendsyssel-Thy with the
rest of Jutland. In 1862, another flooding pierced
another opening, the Thyborøn Canal, through the
remainder of Agger Tange (see satellite image). Agger
Canal was continuously filling with sand, and was
eventually closed in 1877.
