Copenhagen, capital of Denmark. In this post I am focusing on views from above, but first we must find an elevation… While there are quite a few possibilities in the largest city of this country, this one here is special. A friend of mine gave me the tip of a nice church where the last third of the way to the top is via a circular staircase on the outside:

A word of warning: If you have a problem with heights, this is not for you. The staircase gets narrower the higher you get and at the very top there is only space for one person, back against the wall, chest pressed against the rails.
The view you get though is very rewarding. It was windy, so the lighting conditions changed rather quickly.

I could have spent hours up there, watching clouds passing by, throwing their shadows…
Hope you liked this quick “overview” – more pictures from Copenhagen in the coming weeks.

Take care!

A quick one for the weekend whilst I prepare a new batch of pictures.
I went for a nice trip to the beach in Aarhus where I had a longish walk. The Baltic Sea was freezing cold in January, but – you won’t believe it – I saw several people jumping directly from the piers into the waves. Ouch! Although they just had a quick swim of about 10 mins or so, it must have been brutal. I told a Danish friend and he laughed it must be the Viking blood or something!
