The Top of Denmark.

If I take my car and drive for two hours north, as far as I can get, I will end up in Skagen. It is a narrow piece of sandy land that stretches far into the ocean, creating a spectacular place, which has for centuries intrigued and inspired artists with its magical light. This is a place where a meeting of two seas can be watched, a spectacular vision to witness.
The below is a clip from last September, unfortunately of poor quality, taken with my phone. Nevertheless, the crushing of the rolling waves into each other, just off shore is clearly visible. So is the rough, but pristine and rugged nature of the North.

I can't see the video! Stupid computer. I'm sure it was lovely, though :)

Aw, I am sure it is my fault, I am not that good with uploading movie clips (yet), sorry Diane.:P

Diane said...

No, it's not you. I need the updated Adobe Flashplayer but I can't get it to load... my computer's been all temperamental since it got a nasty virus a while ago... it was in 'hospital' for over a week and then had new virus protection installed... some stuff just won't do what it's supposed to now. So I can't see ANY videos... and I'm too lazy to troubleshoot to see how to fix it :)

That is amazing looking! I don't think I've ever seen anything like it, with the waves meeting in the middle like that! I'm so glad you posted that!

Protege said...

Mel, glad you were able to watch the clip.:) It is indeed a mysterious, almost enchanting place.

I love the ocean. I live about two hours from it as well, but I don't visit it near as often as I would like to. Needless to say I have never seen anything like that in my life. How extraordinary!!!

Donna said...

Wow, what a beautiful place. I love the ocean.

Protege said...

Holly and Donna, I love the ocean as well; as watching it can be so contradictory; it can be calm and soothing, or wild and free.;)
