Mosaic Monday

Vi har varit på minisemester i vårt grannland Danmark. Ett av mina stora intressen är fyrar så naturligtvis passade vi på att besöka några danska fyrar. Danmarks mest berömda fyr är kanske den i Rubjerg Knude. 
We have been taking a minivacation and visited our neighbouring country Denmark. I find lighthouses very interesting , so of course we took the opportunity to see some of the Danish. I think Rubjerg Knude is Denmark's most famous lighthouse.




Rubjerg Knude Fyr är belägen på nordsjösidan av norra Jylland. Boken 'Lys lands kysten' av Knud Peder Jensen med fotografier av Knud Nielsen, visar hur det såg ut vid fyren innan man för knappt tio år sedan fick överge området. Rubjerg Knude är den enda danska fyr, som finns med i Ian Penberthy's bok 'Fyrar', med undertexten: 75 magnifika fyrar i världen.

Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse is situated on the North Sea coast of northern Jutland. The drifting sand dunes have slowly drenched the buildings around the lighthouse in sand. The Danish book 'Lys langs kysten'/'Lights along the coast' shows how it look only ten years ago when the buildings had to be abandoned. Rubjerg Knude is only Danish Lighthouse portrayed in Ian Penberthy's book 'Lighthouses' subtitle '75 most magnificent lighthouses in the world'







En annan vacker fyr: Hirtshals Fyr. A really lovely lighthouse: Hirtshals lighthouse.

  5. I really enjoyed this! The Great Dane and I have climbed the stairs of many Danish light houses. They are so well-kept and many have lovely cottage gardens at the base.

  6. I love lighthouses, so thankyou for sharing these with us - and the story of the shifting sand. I also thought I would like to stay in a lighthouse cottage - however no doubt the reality is different to the romantic view of it. Have a wonderful week.
