A Big Freeze in Skodsborg, Denmark

While our weather here in Johannesburg, South Africa vacillates between temperate days, some really hot days, some clouds and a little rain, our friends in the Northern Hemisphere are experiencing winter in the most extreme way possible.  

Our temperature at the moment (15.30 on 1 March 2018) is 26C.  Kirsten, my friend in Denmark sent me the following pics of the sea in her home town of  Skodsborg beginning to freeze in sub-zero temperatures.  Wow!  

Skodsborg was built in 1700 by King Frederick IV as a summer residence and it's called The Whisky Belt by locals because it's the preferred residential area of the very rich.  My friend is privileged to live among the rich and famous in a Spa hotel which has been converted into flats.  Commuting time is 20 minutes into Copenhagen by train.  What a pleasure!

I understand that on a clear day, they can see all the way to Sweden and can even identify a really high building, called the Swinging Torsoe in Malmö, on the South Coast of Sweden.  If you know anything about football/soccer, you'll know that one of Sweden's most famous football stars, Zlatan, Ibrahimovic grew up in the ghetto of Malmö.

Apart from the absolute beauty of the scenary, this is nature showing off in true style...

Amazing to see how the sea is beginning to freeze

Snow white sand with a meaning all of its own

What a sky!

For the ambitious, here's a Wiki link on Skodsborg (Google Translate isn't too bad in translation into English :) )
