Photographer's Note

I've got most of my slides professionally scanned and thought I'd try to upload some of them to TrekEarth. They are shot from 1967 to 1994 and are scanned at 1800 dpi and post-processed in PhotoShop CS5.

For more than 100 years Denmark's highest situated lighthouse at Nørre Lyngvig has helped guide ships along the western coast of Jylland (Jutland). The cone at 53 m (174 ft) above sea level sends out its beam every five seconds and can be seen for more than 40 kms (25 mi).

The lighthouse itself is 38 m (125 ft) high and stands on the 17 m (56 ft) high and narrow dunes, which are stretching for 30 kms (19 mi) to the north and south, separating Ringkøbing Fiord from the sea.

Climb the 228 steps to reach the top and you'll have a wonderful view. And you'll see that the "Fiord" isn't really a fiord, but more of a shallow lagoon shielded from the North Sea by the isthmus called Holmsland Klit (Holmsland Dunes) on which the lighthouse is standing.

Modern navigational aids aren't nearly as beautiful...
