Evening light at Bulbjerg, Denmark

Bulbjerg is a limestone cliff in the North-western part of Jutland, facing Skagerrak. It is the only rock in Jutland and the only bird cliff in Denmark. It is also the southernmost breeding place of the kittiwakes. For centuries, chalk blocks were sawed out of the cliff and used as a building material in the surrounding area or burnt to quicklime. Former visitors have carved their names in the limestone, including a 19th century king whose name can still be seen.
