Photographer's Note

As I say in my profile description, I'm not sure if I shoot because I love photography or because I love nature and human beings. This one was clearly shot for nature's sake.
Although sunset photos are often classified as mainstream, obvious, or even kitsch (as someone dared to say), I still insist in posting it: nature is beautiful. And in support of this idea is the fact that I did no post processing other than cropping and sharpness: the colors have come directly from nature, and the sun is overexposed like it is supposed to be :)

Having said that, let's talk about the subject:

Helsingborg, the "pearl of the Öresund", is a Swedish coastal city of the Skåne county. It is located right in front of Denmark's Helsingør (Elsinore), just four kilometers across the sea, at the thinnest distance between Sweden and Denmark. That's why it has an intense maritime traffic, even after the Öresund Bridge was built a few kilometers south, between Malmö and Copenhagen.

The city is dated back to the XI century and it was a strategic location specially during the Middle Age wars.

The statue here depicted is dedicated to Maritime Trade and was made by the famous Swedish artist Carl Milles.
