Hey, I just posted an overcast photo of Himmelbjerget!


It's no secret it's not always sunny up here - it's Scandinavia after all, we often have multilple days a year ( !!!! ) with partial or even full cloud coverage and only a few decades ago we even had rain!


Joking aside, it's always more fun to take photos when the weather is great and it creates the best photos - why I don't post cloudy photos from other nations either, unless I have no other option ( like with my recent thread from Prague )

Those interested in visiting Denmark should do so in the summer half of the year ( mid may to late september ) and they should be prepared for weather that can be both windy, cloudy or rainy..
On a summer day you have a really great chance of at least a few hours of sun, but the perfect blue skies I often post is sadly not all that common ( if it was the land wouldn't be so fertile and lush )

At the end of the day we are at the mercy of the heat the Gulfstream brings up here - rain isn't all that bad, snow is very rare, but clouds does come with the territory year round..

I can't get over how Denmark is able to so beautifully and seamlessly mix extremely historic European architecture with some of the most cutting edge post modern architecture side by side. And it works!
A perfect case study in favor of good design. I am beyond jealous. The US is obsessed with single story, big-box disposable architecture that often times gets torn down just 25 years after it was built, to then sit as an ugly parking lot for the next 20 years until somebody decides to turn it into yet another uninspired strip mall.

Obviously, Europe for the most part has figured this out.

It never ceases to amaze me how many people you can cram into a place with a fairly continuous smear of three and four story buildings. And you don't need any skyscrapers at all to do it. (Though they do always add a nice exclamation.) Lovely shots of old, walkable urban density.

^the problem is when people get used to low buildings they find anything above a few floors too tall ( people would typically call a 6 floor+ story building here a "highrise" or even a "skyscraper" if it's a slim building :ohno: ) and you get a huge number of NIMBYs whining about shadows and wind
