Windswept West Coast

This is what a beach on the west coast of Jutland looks like in November.  (Jutland is the furthest west of the many islands comprising Denmark.) You'll have to imagine the wind.

I felt this was a palette I understood: grey skies, wind bleached sea grass, grey sea.

This is a fishing village perched between the beach and the fjord - even more windswept, if that's possible, since it gets the wind from both the west and the east.

I appreciated the attempts at brightening up the landscape.

I liked the Danish flags adorning many of the buildings.

But most of all I liked the beach.
