Giber Å

June 7, 2011

This photo is from the forest around Vilhelmsborg – like the photo in my previous post. Through the forest runs a stream called Giber Å (“Å”is one of three special Danish letters (Æ / æ, Ø / ø and Å / å). In this case the letter Å is also a word – meaning stream.

This place is only a moment of walk from the spot in previous post. I enjoyed the water rippling, the forest’s deep peace and reflections of the trees in the water here.

    Lovely reflections and I’ve also learnt a little bit about your language:)

      Å is good word for your first Danish-lesson. As long as you are not going to pronounce it, very few foreigners are able to do so!

    You have captured the spirit of the Danish beech forests very well, in both of these posts. I’ll recommend a walk there to anyone.

    Nice picture, it resembles a norwegian small stream…(no=bekk)
    I guess you’ll find a lot of photo subjects in this aera…

      You are right – there is photo subjects for many posts here! We also use the word “bæk” in Danish – which means a little “å”…

    Ahhh, a sigh of bliss… I can imagine walking along the side of this stream, listening to its singing… heavenly…

      Heavenly it truly is there too…. I hope you come and take a walk here one day….

    Hej Truels, tak for kommentar på min blog. Du glemte at lægge din egen blog’s URL, så jeg fandt dig ved et tilfælde 😉 (gennem min statcounter)
    Du må selvfølgelig gerne linke min blogspot her. Sjovt nok kan jeg fortæle dig at Jelshøj, som du også linker til, er min families slægtsgård. Gården hed Jelsbak, ligesom min familie på min mors side. Den gamle gård, eller resterne af den, ligger stadig på Jelshøj, som den hedder i dag.

      Godt du fandt frem hertil alligevel! Og hvilken fin historie at have Jelsbak som slægtsgård, tak fordi du fortalte den!

    Lovely reflections. The forest always brings peace to my heart.

    I love the color and depth of this photo. It truly speaks “peace” to me.

    Lovely place. It is looking a little bit “wild” due to those fallen trees.

    In Finland the letter Å is known. You know the word Åland (in Finnish Ahvenanmaa), I presume. 🙂

    I love the depth too in this landscape; beautiful reflections and lovely spots of white (birch trees ?) in the stream.

      I do not know which trees it is, but most of the trees are beech trees……
