'Sunsets at the West Coast are just amazing and I can never get enough of them - this sunset is taken close to Rubjerg Knude Fyr on the West Coast in the Northern part of Denmark - one of my absolute favourite spots.'
'Local life on the West Coast is cool and authentic - in this picture you can see the local specialty, DABS or Tørfisk, left out to hang dry during spring months. In general you can find delicious fresh fish and seafood all along the coast - and in many places experience the active harbour life first hand.'
Hygge: the Danish word and concept that is hard to translate but found in abundance in Copenhagen. Danes, correct me if I'm wrong, but it can be defined as the art of building sanctuary and community, of paying attention to what makes us feel alive. A feeling of belonging to the moment and celebrating the everyday. It's in the small rituals that comfort us, make us feel at home. It's sitting around a table sharing a meal, or beside a fire on a wet night. It's cosiness. This trip has been full of hygge - last night we had a beautiful meal at Höst restaurant where we sampled the best of new Nordic cuisine with lots of laughter and candlelight. Perfect. #inCopenhagen
'Summer is my favourite season on the West Coast - however spring, fall and winter are also great - each in their own way. This is Lyngvig Lighthouse caught on a beautiful winter day.'
'One of the reasons I love living on the West Coast is the fact that you have nature just outside your doorstep - great bike- og runing tracks and all kinds of watersports nearby. No excuse to stay indoor;) This picture is from Hvide Sande - ready for some Stand Up Paddling.'
'The ocean, the dunes and the nature in general are by far the main attracion on the West Coast of Denmark, and along the more than 550km of coastline you find sandy beaches, picturesque dunes, dramatic escarpments and amazing views. This picture is from just north of Søndervig and is a typical West Coast view.'
