Denmark - September 29th, 2009

In the northernmost part of Denmark, on the Jutland Peninsula, lies the Limfjord (bottom left quadrant), a shallow sound in Denmark that extends from Thyborøn Channel on the North Sea to Hals on the Kattegat (center).

Offshore and northeast of Hals is Læsø, the largest island in the North Sea bay of Kattegat. It is located 19 kilometers (12 mi) off the Danish mainland.

Together with the island of Anholt (central right edge), Læsø belongs to the Danish “desert belt”; during the summer months there is so little rain that streams and ponds partly dry up.

The landmass visible in the upper right corner is part of Sweden. Gothenburg, the second largest Swedish city and the biggest sea port of the Nordic countries, can be seen here at the mouth of Göta Älv River.
