First of all I use this opportunity to thank all the many of you who have commented and given advice and suggestions to my last post “Gingko” – and thus got me started making two new versions of the third photo.
I am curious to hear what you think about the latest version!
It’s so nice to be so inspired by you!
Earlier this year I visited Esbjerg in Southwest Jutland. Esbjerg is the fifth-largest city in Denmark – with 82.000 inhabitants. Esbjerg is also one of our newest cities, it was founded in 1868. It is the central city of West Jutland, and is situated in a very flat area of the already flat Denmark (See my link about our highest “mountains”!). And the Wadden Sea is also one of National Parks.
The great port of Esbjerg was for many years used by a large fishing fleet – and as a port for passenger and cargo ships, as it is the only major port on the Danish west coast. Today the port of Esbjerg is also an important port for Danish North Sea oil offshore activity.
This is the view towards west from the dike between the harbor and Hjerting. The island that is seen not far from the coast is one of Denmark’s three Wadden Sea islands, Fanø.
