Image of the Month - FEBRUARY 2009

Ice pattern, Råbjerg mile, Denmark

Together with fellow photographer Søren Koch I visited Råbjerg Mile on a cold winter day in February. The weather was mostly overcast, although the weather forecast had promised clear weather, in the evening it became freezing cold, but that's is the way I like it!.

Twilight has long been popular with photographers and painters, who refer to it as the "blue hour", after the French expression l'heure bleue. I just love this time of the day, we found this ice pattern and photographed it until darkness was complete. Råbjerg Mile is a migrating coastal dune between Frederikshavn and Skagen. Its the largest moving dune in Northern Europe with an area of around 1 km². The wind moves it in a north-easterly direction up to 18 meter a year and the dune leaves a low moist layer of sand behind it.

One of the most extreme landscapes in Denmark, an area which is perfect for dramatic scenic shots.
