Nyhavn at night: København, Denmark,

Fotoeins Friday: Copenhagen’s Nyhavn at night

One of the most visited and photographed parts of Copenhagen is the Nyhavn (New Harbour) district. The summer evening provides a wonderful opportunity to capture the scene with endlessly serene blues in the twilight sky in contrast with the harsh almost garish neon streetlights below. Fortunately, the reflections in the rippling water somehow soften the artificial light. Good thing the image includes “Nyhavn 17” signage to remind me exactly where I am …

I made the above photo on 30 June 2008, near Mindeankeret (The Memorial Anchor) at the western end of Nyhavn, near Kongens Nytorv (King’s New Square). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at, and also appears on Travel Photo Thursday for Nancie McKinnon’s Budget Traveler’s Sandbox.

      Hi, L. Are you stopping in Copenhagen briefly before going to Poland? In addition to walking around the old town (and you know what old Europe is like!), what I’d also recommend if you have a bunch of daylight hours is to take a boat around the waterways of Copenhagen. I hope you enjoy your time in the Danish capital, L!

      Hi, Hannah. Scandinavian cities are varied, that’s true, and Copenhagen is, simply put, delightful. I hope you get to go back soon! Thanks for your comment!

      Scandinavia as a life-project: doesn’t that sound grand and inviting? I want to go back and see more, too!
