Icebergs in Denmark

January 7, 2011

Guess where I was over the Christmas holiday?
Click on the three photos, enlarge and enjoy these beautiful – – icebergs …………… Which I photographed December 26, 2010.

Now I could tell you, that I have fulfilled an old dream: To travel to Greenland!

But then I would lie! And I will NOT lie to you! Not that I do not dream of traveling to Greenland. But I have not been there – yet.

These photos are captured at Moesgård Strand (Moesgaard Beach) around 10 km south of Århus on a day, where everything there was covered with ice, including the beach, the the large stones, used for coastal protection, and the poles used to mount the bath bridges in the summertime.

I will show more of this in my next post, but this post is dedicated to Greenland and my (and many other’s) dreams of Greenland…..

I hope you will join me……..?

    I do like the icemounds, especially as they’re floating on all that pretty blue water. I hope you get to Greenland one day soon. Or, who knows, the way things are going, perhaps Greenland will float off to visit you.

      You might be right in your last remark: Some scientists say, that if/when all the ice in Greenland has melted it will cause a rise in water level in the oceans by 7 meters…. (much of Denmark will be seabed then!)

    Your rock icebergs are spectacular, Truels. They’re perhaps an inkling of what the real things (in Greenland) will be like.

      Thank you for your comment, Barb. I thought the similarity was striking when I shivering from cold took the gloves off and photographed them!
