Record cold Danish winter

February 6, 2012

This weekend, we had record low temperatures here in Denmark.
Minus 23 degrees Celsius, the lowest temperature measured here for 26 years ….
The three pictures here show the Danish landscape – at Nordsminde Fjord. I was lucky to have the sun play with the light over the fjord, while I with frozen fingers captured the three photos of the view over the ice on the frozen fjord. Captured from my favorite place by the road along the fjord. In the last photo you can see the Bay of Århus with Samsø,Tunø – and the offshore wind turbines.

      Hej Kenneth! Nyt og dejligt at “se” dig her 🙂
      Dejligt du kan li’ billederne.
      Hvis du tager nogle gode fotos også – kan de jo blive en “gæste-post” her (indtil du selv laver en foto-blog!)
      Håber vi når en gang madklub hos dig inden 1/3…

    Great photos Truels, nice!

    Goodness me that is big cold!!


    • February 6, 2012 10:18 pm

      Yes it was. And it’s still cold – but the forecast says milder 🙂

    Oh dear! Too cold – at least for photographing, I have lost one camera in those conditions, we can get fingers warm but the camera may stop totally 🙂

    Great winter landscapes!
    Our weather is warmer now as yesterday, hoping yours will be soon too!


    • February 6, 2012 10:20 pm

      It seems like it will be – a little – warmer the next days 🙂


  5. February 6, 2012 6:31 pm

    fro = for 🙂


    • February 6, 2012 10:25 pm

      I have changed it 🙂
      And i have tried this several times – writing wrong (=too fast!!!) in my comments to other blogs – and can’t correct it. That’s why I try to correct spelling in the comments here, when I read misspellings.

    It looks very pretty! Those temps are so cold.

    Awesome pictures, Truels! ¨
    Good for you to feel the cold the way we feel it every singel year in Norway… 🙂
    I wish you a warm Tuesday!


    • February 6, 2012 10:28 pm

      I don’t think Tuesday will be warm for me – says the gardener (who’s working outside most of the time!)

    What a very strange winter all round Truels. Some very unseasonably mild temperatures in the U.S. and terrible cold in Europe. Hope it warms up soon.


  9. February 7, 2012 12:28 pm

    Ooooh, stay warm Truels! At least you have the pretty snow along with your cold temps – I miss the snow though I shouldn’t complain too much since we’ve had some mild days. Just a crazy season for all of us!


    • February 7, 2012 9:04 pm

      The snow is white and beautiful – the problem is that it freezes horribly on the fingers when you want to capture the beauty…


  10. February 7, 2012 7:32 pm

    I heard it was cold in Europe these days but did not realize it was that cold! Watch out for frost bite on your hands and condensation on your camera.

    I would not have needed to know how cold….your photos tell the story, chillingly.


    • February 7, 2012 9:05 pm

      Thanks for your comments, Scott. Hope you are a little warmer over there?!

    Ang Operahuset i Sydney:
    Jeg mener det var sønnen som sto ansvarlig for den oppussinga som foregikk i Operahuset i 2008… Kan det stemme?


    • February 7, 2012 9:16 pm

      Ja, Jan Utzon stod for renoveringen af Operahuset – og Jørn Utzon deltog også – men døde desværre 90 år gammel senere dette år. I øvrigt er begge hans sønner, Jan og Kim, kendte arkitekter…

    Minus 23 degrees!! That’s SO cold!! brrrrr. beautiful, though 🙂


    • February 7, 2012 9:17 pm

      The light was SO fine that afternoon. But the temperature…… 😦


  13. February 7, 2012 9:13 pm

    Gorgeous landscape images! Cannot believe how cold it’s been there – we have had a very mild winter here in Chicago.


    • February 7, 2012 9:19 pm

      It’s still that cold here. And now they begin to have problems with the ice in the inland waters here…


  14. February 8, 2012 3:26 am

    with frozen fingers, I guess! they turned out beautifully.


  15. February 8, 2012 10:57 am

    Nice photos! It’s been really cold but now it feels almost warm when it’s only minus 5 deg C instead! :))

    Love the atmosphere of your pictures. I like the landscape as well for it made me think of bakkers og bølgers land! 🙂

    KH, Christian.

      Thank you, Christian, for visiting and comments. And you know our national anthem?! Er du fra Danmark – og bor i Tyskland?

        Hej truels, jeg kommer fra Tyskland og bor i Hamborg. Jeg har lærte lidt dansk fordi jeg elsker min ferie i Danmark! 🙂 Men jeg mangler øvelse at tale dansk!

        And of course I know your national anthem. Actually, we have sung it one or two times in our danish lessons. The lyrics are just beautiful. 🙂

        KH, Christian.


        • February 12, 2012 10:52 pm

          Hej Christian! Jeg håber du kommer herop og øver dig mere i dansk snart 😉

            Tak og det håber jeg også. Jeg glæder mig til næste timen i maj. 🙂

    What a wonderful scene, but you can certainly keep those temperatures… -5 at night here is cold enough for me…

    The first image for me : Foot print of a group , they are singing and dancing ( maybe they are drunk for the curves in the way or I don’t know zig – zag 🙂 ) any way they are going to reach the free horizon . The way is clear .
    I love this image more than all of them .


    • February 8, 2012 11:40 pm

      Oh, my friend – I loved your imagination about the curves and tracks in the snow on the ground. And I sit with closed eyes and imagine this bunch of zig-zagging people moving down towards the fjord surrounded by large clouds of their warm breath in the hard frost…… Maybe I should go with them? 😉


  19. February 9, 2012 4:35 am

    Truels, the images tell the story. It has been unseasonable warm for us this time of the year but I’m not complaining.


    • February 9, 2012 10:57 pm

      I do what most of the population in our country do: Talk a lot about the weather! Why? I think because the Danish weather changes SO much during the year – and the years 🙂


  20. February 9, 2012 11:12 pm

    I’m so glad you went out with your frozen fingers to take these beautiful photos. I cannot imagine just how cold that is, but sounds too cold for me:)


    • February 12, 2012 10:55 pm

      I would definitely prefer your summer weather now down under in wonderful New Zealand!


  21. February 12, 2012 8:55 pm

    Spectacular photography Truels! We’ve had temperatures down to about -7 in south-west England and we think that’s pretty cold! I don’t think I can comprehend the temperatures you have.


    • February 12, 2012 10:57 pm

      I’m glad to say, that we have temperatures above 0 now at least in the daytime…..


  22. February 13, 2012 12:43 am

    I’m sorry to hear that you were experiencing such nasty cold temps, but your photos are magnificent.


  23. February 14, 2012 9:41 am

    Wow, so cold… very nice shot!


  24. March 1, 2012 3:36 am

    ….and soon it will be Spring…enjoy the winter white. Lovely photographs.


    • March 1, 2012 11:53 pm

      The temperatures here right now are like spring! 🙂 But the forecast says frost in the coming days 😦
