Location: Esterhøj (89 m)      by: Jan Lindgaard Rasmussen
Area: Denmark      Date: 2012-08-13, 19:50
The landscape of Northwestern Sjælland (Kalundborg - Holbæk and northwards) is called Odsherred - "the Herred of the Odde". Odde means "a pointing peninsula", and Herred means "riding army" - a political unit, capable of producing contributions to the army, collecting taxes and enforcement of the law.

As you can see, the location here is close to the former panos. The former location offers an unbroken view of the Sjællands Odde peninsula, which is not the case here, unfortunately. However, the view in every other direction is free. As with so many other viewpoints, trees grow up...I was here earlier the same day, but I was not really happy with the "grelles gegenlicht", so I came back later in the afternoon in a more soft light. We are also close to Vejrhøj, which I used extensively in early spring as location. You don't really see anything here, that I haven't shown in other panos, but every viewpoint has a right to be panoramised...:-)

Pano made from 22 pics (RAW), iso-100, f/11, 1/200 sec, developed in DPP (neutral, moderate sharpness, shadows lightened a bit), stitched with PTgui pro, re-scaled and sharpened in IrfanView.

In diesem weichen Abendlicht sieht das alles sehr gut aus. Schön, mal eine altertümliche "richtige" Windmühle zu sehen und nicht nur die "neumodischen Spargel". LG Fried

Richtig hügelig die Gegend. Fast schon hügeliger als dort wo ich wohne.

Danke für die interesse. Hans-Jürgen, is it the Alpenvorland? LG Jan.

Wonderful picture from your country Jan! I think with 89m it's a "danish munro" ;-) - lg Hans-Jörg

Der im Umkreis von vielleicht 15km nächsthöhere Hügel ist der Nockherberg.
Eingefleischte Ureinwohner hatten oft Schwierigkeiten von dort wieder runterzukommen. Ja, Alpenvorland :-)

Hahaaaa, wegen der Biergarten? :-) LG Jan.
