    Many thanks, Taz. Just wait to my presentation of the photos of the historical harbour areas. That will be The Never Ending Story III :D

    Many thanks for your comment. Not all cities are alike :) . The photos are taken on some wild flowers, that grow on the rocky wharf on the edge of Copenhagen Harbour. In fact the ground is a part of the area, where the central waste water purification plant of greater Copenhagen is situated! You don't breathe to hard, when you are staying there :D. I only have to bike a few kilometres to get out there.

    Wow! That is nice to hear! You are right, it depends on the city. :)

    Great photos. Your're are lucky to be able to experience nature just a few kilometers from where you live. I've only visited one Nordic country, Sweden. I was planing to go to Finland in the future but maybe I might pass through Copenhagen.

    Many thanks for your comment. Yes, Copenhagen benefits from some nearby natural areas. It's a never ending fight to protect these areas and all those politicians who love so-called development now and then eat a bite and then another bite. But I guess: That's the same all over the world. Do pass through Copenhagen. You will love it.
