Photographer's Note

The idyllic harbor of Hoeruphav is nicely located on the island Als in Southern Jutland.
As already mentioned before, Denmark – this nation of seafarers - has long-standing maritime traditions since it is almost completely surrounded by water. Especially the shallow waters along the Baltic Sea offer perfect places for those who appreciate the benefits and possibilities of sea kayaking.
More and more people are starting to practice this nice and de-stressing sport. It is not as difficult as many people believe. As a beginner, you can learn it through weekend courses, so you can feel completely safe in the water. You learn the most basic skills such as rowing technique, getting in and out of the kayak, passing in and out of the waves as well as emptying a kayak full of water. You also learn to save your companion because you will almost certainly turn over quite a few times! Sea kayaking is not an extreme sport, even though some people think it is, it is more like a feeling of being one with nature. And it is the sensation of peace that comes over you when you have packed your kayak, ready to sail away. Free as a bird. Sea kayaking is about experiencing, enjoying and exploring the sea and the surrounding nature. And you can even take photos! You will find many fascinating impressions here in the nice gallery created by the exceptionally gifted trekearther and sea kayaker Tom aka gunbud.
During the next three weeks (my holidays) I will be here infrequently because I am going to spend most of my time with my friends and my family who will come to visit me. I wish you a nice time and very pleasant holidays too (to whom it may concern)!
