A glacial landscape in Denmark

This is a walk not a climb. Though only 82 meter above sea level the Danish mountain, Højbjerg is a beautiful place
From the top of Højbjerg you have a lovely view over the fields and treetops.
The Ice Age landscape was formed 15,000 – 12,000 B.C.
Two glaciers created a wonderful rolling scenery of hills and valleys, lakes and marshes. A great amount of melting ice created kettle holes, and the current lake Løjesø, was formed among many lakes.

  1. very lovely posts I saw here today! Thank you, Hanna, & HAPPY EASTER! ❤

    • Very lovely comment followed 🙂 🙂 Thank you, Resa and may you be blessed with flowers and Easter eggs ❤ ❤ ❤

      • Haha! That goes very fine with the eggs. Chocolate is the key to all good things 😀

    • I’m very glad you enjoyed the landscape, Aquileana.
      All the best,

    • You are too kind, James 🙂 Thank you!!
      There can be so many changes when walking through woods.
      I find it very special in May and June. At that time the birds are still very active singing and the new foliage roof make the birds voices echo. Really amazing ❤

  2. Es impresionante el poder de la naturaleza. Como muy bien dices, es un paisaje precioso para disfrutar. Un abrazo amiga.<3

    • Me encantan las variaciones en el paisaje, que ayudan a poner de relieve la dimensión y color. Muchas gracias, Magnoliae ❤

  3. Å så vakkert, Hanna! Jeg fant ingen mulighet til å svare på din siste post, så jeg vil ønske deg og dine en GOD PÅSKE her. 🙂

    • Tusind tak, Hanne. Jeg vil overbringe din hilsen ❤
      I ønskes også en glædelig påske 🐻 🙂

  4. Gorgeous colours, Hanna. I love the combination of beautiful cool blue tones of the sky and the warm earthy browns, oranges and reds of the trees and ground. 🙂

    • Thanks for that, Jane 🙂
      I find it fascinating to think that all hills; ridges; bogs; lakes and meadows are created by glaciers coming from the Nordic mountains 11,500 years ago – some sources say later. What a huge amount of forces!!

    • I’m glad you like the photos, Isabel. I look forward to when the green foliage comes.
      The colours now are red brown and black. It will be nice with the change 🙂 🙂
      Thanks a lot ❤

    • Thank you, Julie. It’s not like climbing a mounting in Idaho but as you notice it is a peaceful place. It always amaze me with the many hills and slopes. It is a distinctly glacial landscape ❤ 🙂
