Amager Strandpark lies on the south part of Copenhagen. This part differs widely from the main city (less inhabited, vast areas, modern blocks of buildings), but I was happy to find this beauty here, a huge park and a closed sea area next to it where people could practice kayak polo and also swim (if you dare).
When you look at the view in front of you, here lies Sweden and an offshore wind energy park, or at least one of Copenhagen’s wind parks. Yes, they are a LOT.
Spring hasn’t left yet (or maybe I just refuse to admit that this is summer), so beautiful flowers and green vast areas form such a romantic landscape.
It is romantic, isn’t it?
While playing a bit with the basic effects of editing programmes, I always -that is always- end up with grayscale and sepia. Classic are favourites, so I could not go away from the very clichet but loved ones. I tried to make my old picture found here sepia like (above) but then I ended up playing in Instagram and comparing them…
Which one do you usually prefer?
On a flight above Athens and the Aegean archipelagos, while reaching the airport for landing, you can see numerous wind turbines. As an energy engineer, I am always excited to see such things, but what I saw for the first time was that the wind turbines were placed all across the top of the hills-mountains. Like it or not, the view was amazing!
As an energy engineer I came to Denmark to study its expertise in renewables (and I fell in love with it but that’s another story…)
As a traveller in Denmark, I could literally see a small wind turbine anywhere I turned my eyes- they jump up like little flowers. It is a fact that in a flat landscape like Denmark it can become annoying to see them everywhere, however for some reason, I got used to them and I now see them somehow integrated with the natural landscape. Whether they fit or or not, they are pretty astonishing and a bit scary when you stand right beneath them (I still see the huge blade chasing me).
Here are some pictures from a wind farm I visited once as well as its shadow flicker on the field (which in Denmark due to the fact that sun is not so high, it can extent in a great distance).
