Music Nonstop - almost

Summer time is festival time. Denmark hosts several music festivals in the summer. One of the most well known i probably Roskilde Festival not far from where I live.
The picture however is from the just finished Langelandsfestival (Langeland is the name of an elongated island southeast of the island of Fyn; you could call it Long Island, I suppose).
On stage we have Bamses Venner, a Danish band with a Danish attitude, look and sound. The big guy in blue in the center with the bass is called Bamse (Danish for Teddy Bear).

Sunset on the beach

Yeah, I know. Sunset pictures are generally boring. This is probably just another boring sunset picture shot at the local beach. This beach is Ishøj Strandpark, a place I have visited earlier this year, on a freezing day, although the picture was posted in May.
In the picture I am looking at the sunset, the water is behind me.

Another view of this beach in daylight can be seen on Fotolia.

New and old in Dragør

A new modern Chinese restaurant in the old town part of Dragør. Dragør is located south of Copenhagen, not far from the airport. Almost all buildings in the old town is painted yellow.
Also most of the old town is pedestrian only, so it is perfect for a stroll in the summer evening, since all cars are kept out of the inner town.
Nearby is a harbour with fishing boats and yachts. Several years ago Dragør had a ferry to Lindhamn in Sweden, now you can see Øresundsbron (bridge to Sweden) from Dragør.

Pouring Summer Rain

A very short rainfall, but still a lot of water. The summer this year has been very hot and with almost no rain. Yesterday we did have a short wave of very hard rain. The image shows rain pouring down on the sidewalk.

In the town of Roskilde 40 kilometers west of Copenhagen there is a Viking Ship Museum, called Vikingeskibsmuseet (homepage: There they build old ships the same way, the vikings did. You can see a lot of different sea wessels, including viking longships.
