Welcome to Copenhagen

A few pictures from my first photo ride in Copenhagen. With my cousin and her boyfriend, we went up the tower of Christiansborg, where the Parliament of Denmark now resides (you know this place if you’ve followed the Danish series “Borgen”).

Yes, in this tower, behind the statue!

From there, we got a nice view over the city. In the distance, we could see the Øresund Bridge and Sweden.

From there, a short walk took us to Vor Frelsers Kirke, in the borough of Christianshavn. You can go up inside then outside, around the bell tower to get another impressive view, but don’t forget to go inside the church. It’s worth it.

A bus-boat brought us near the Little Mermaid. This universal symbol of Copenhagen is assailed by tourists at all time, which inspired me this unusual picture.

Don’t worry, I’ll try to get more classical pictures of the fish one day…

Finally, a walk in Nyhavn was compulsory for the basic tourists we were.

Yes, this is what you see on every postcard from Copenhagen.

Around sunset, I paid a first visit to the so-called “recreational area” Utterslev Mose. Located right next to my appartment, it consists of several lakes, islets and grass fields. I saw no outstanding, overexciting bird, but I got a few satisfying pictures of common birds like swans, mallards, coot or wood pigeon. The sunset light is always delighting!
