80-90%... no, but we certainly do get our share of grey boring skies, especially in the winter half of the year!

Personally I prefere to take my pics in sunny weather - don't we all?

Skjoldnæsholm

Weather wasn't at it's best today, but so what, here's a couple pics from the area around Skjoldnæsholm in central Zealand

The area is very representative of inland Zealand with soft rolling hills, small lakes, streams, lush fields and forests..

^thanks and yes, northern Germany and Denmark share more than just culture and history

About today me and a mate ( fellow member Hviid ) had planned a road trip down south to cover some places -and we did - sadly however the weather was very cloudy so most of the areas was postponed to another day..

It wasn't completely fruitless though, so here's a bit from today..




Vordingborg

Located in the southern part of Zealand you find this old home to Kings and Queens..

Vordingborg used to be home to one of Denmark's largest castles back in the 12th century
Sadly there's almost only ruins left now with the exception of a pretty cool tower

[IMG]http://i39.************/28urz3t.jpg[/IMG]

Dannebro - the world's oldest national flag
[IMG]http://i40.************/2py5pmw.jpg[/IMG]

Old castle walls..
[IMG]http://i40.************/el4rxl.jpg[/IMG]

The Gåsetårn from 1362 - only part still intact
[IMG]http://i44.************/2qtl9hj.jpg[/IMG]

The area around the ruins..
[IMG]http://i44.************/fnhh6s.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i43.************/14tq7ns.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i40.************/5jtzyu.jpg[/IMG]

The habour from where the King's fleet could easily reach most of the Kingdom should it be needed

The church from 1388

Awwwww...

Mainstreet
[IMG]http://i39.************/30wl661.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i39.************/2rzry8j.jpg[/IMG]

That's about it - and I will be the first to say that this does not do the city justice, but the clouds rolled in and we desided to move north so what is left will have to wait for another day..

What I can say is that I found it a very nice place with the lovely lush nature and great setting..

Are you serious? Roskilde is worldwide famous because of it's rock festival!

While Denmark most certainly doesn't lack sandy beaches there are alternatives if you feel like cooling off by taking a swim..

One of these alternatives is this former limestone quarry turned recreational area..

Sorø

Located convenient between two large lakes this 1000 year old city was unlike many not founded on industry but on educational institutions..

Today it still houses many buildings from it's past and makes for a nice place to visit with both cozy old streets and calm recreational areas
[IMG]http://i27.************/16llcnb.jpg[/IMG]

We start of in the suburban sprawl that surrounds all Danish cities..
