From the chapel at the Renaissance castle Kronborg in Helsingør, Denmark. The chapel was inaugurated in 1582. 200 years later the castle was turned into military barracks, the interior fittings were stored away and the space used as a gymnasium(!). But the items were kept, and in 1838 they were reinstated in their original place and there they remain to this day.
Danish tugboat ASKØ photographed in Copenhagen (ab.) 1916. The boat, built by J. Th. Wilmink in Groningen in 1916, was owned by the shipping company DFDS. It was sold in 1951and received a new name, Redden. The original steam engine was replaced in 1950. My colorization of an image in the M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark archive.
I have used a Danish coin as my base and a pendant which I like very much, an industrial looking cube with a pearl attached to it. By chance I had the little lights out on my table so I thought I'd use them too.
Last year we were in Denmark twice. We are always close to Løkken and Lønstrup up there and we were very lucky in October that we were up there at the exact time when the Rubjerg Knude lighthouse was moved. In November we went up again to be there when the lighthouse reopened. That was a very touching moment for Janet and me because we have been visiting the lighthouse since 1993 and have been there at least once almost every year since then. Actually, the lighthouse is not particularly spectacular. But its story is very moving (in the truest sense of the word). In this stream there is an old photo, scanned from the paper photo from 1993, which still shows the lighthouse with its associated buildings. Back then we could still have an ice cream in the lighthouse's coffee shop. After that the sand got more and more from the buildings year after year, so that in the end only the tower was sticking out of the sand. The edge of the cliff came closer every year and so the tower was pushed 70 meters further inland in one piece last year, on rails and roller skates. Most people only look at the lighthouse when they visit, but we also use the visits to experience the coast frayed by sea, sand and wind. This photo was taken in November 2019, one day after the lighthouse was opened to the public again.
Frederiksborg Castle (Danish: Frederiksborg Slot) is a palatial complex in Hillerød, Denmark. It was built as a royal residence for King Christian IV of Denmark-Norway in the early 17th century, replacing an older castle acquired by Frederick II and becoming the largest Renaissance residence in Scandinavia. Situated on three islets in the Slotssøen (castle lake), it is adjoined by a large formal garden in the Baroque style.
After a serious fire in 1859, the castle was rebuilt on the basis of old plans and paintings. The building and its apartments were fully restored by 1882 when it was reopened to the public as the Danish Museum of National History.

Rosenborg Castle (Danish: Rosenborg Slot) is a renaissance castle located in Copenhagen, Denmark. The castle was originally built as a country summerhouse in 1606 and is an example of Christian IV's many architectural projects. It was built in the Dutch Renaissance style, typical of Danish buildings during this period, and has been expanded several times, finally evolving into its present condition by the year 1624. Architects Bertel Lange and Hans van Steenwinckel the Younger are associated with the structural planning of the castle.
