Once you are outside the sheltered bay by Esbjerg, The Nordic Sea runs all the way to England. Common knowledge since the Vikings 🙂
The image yesterday caused me to repost this 2012 image from the same location. I apologize for not having the time to dig it out and edit it from scratch – my fingers are itching, though.
Anyway, same location in Esbjerg, Man at Sea by Svend Wiig Hansen looking out over the Nordic Sea. But a different season. This was taken in the summer while the other was close to the shortest day of the year.
