This image focuses on the upper part of the Jutland Peninsula, in Denmark. Visible by the left edge are contrails (or condensation trails) caused by passing aircraft.

The body of water near the northern shores is the Limfjord, a shallow sound that separates the island of Vendsyssel-Thy from the rest of the Jutland Peninsula.

The sound extends from Thyborøn Channel on the North Sea to Hals on the Kattegat. It is approximately 180 kilometres long and of an irregular shape with several bays, narrowings, and islands, most notably Mors.
