Photographer's Note

A Scandline ferry leaving the Danish town Helsingφr bound for the Swedish town Helsingborg on the other side of Φresund. This is the place with the shortest distance between Denmark and Sweden if small islands are not counted. It has allways been a busy place and even after the construction of a bridge further south it continous to be busy. The ferry trip takes twenty minutes and Scandlines has two or three departures every hour in daytime and then Scandlines are not the only opperator. There are two or three more of them. All in all, if you look out over the stretch at any time of the day you will see a number of ferries underway.

The castle in the background is the Danish castle Kronborg. It was once part of a defence systme and has played roles in a number of conflicts between Swedes and Danes. Later rebuilt to a Royal Castle it nowadays is a cultural heritage and a famous place for performances of Shakespeare΄s Hamlet. I think it is the correct location for that play, I mean this is where the plot takes place in the book. Maybe the Danes can correct me if I΄m wrong.

I will end with a famous quote from Hamlet often used, "There is something rotten in the state of Denmark".
