It hurts a little not going forward with my panos from the Faroes, but if ever I am going to show something remotely fresh, now is my chance. I will continue with the Faroes soon.

2 weeks ago I had the joy of going on a sea-trip around Møn (pronounced "Möhn"), to watch seabirds. The part of passing the cliffs of Møns Klint became the showpiece of the trip, and left me more stunned than I had expected. I had "feared" a lesser overview than what we got, but still the prominence was shocking for danish proportions. I will need a little time for the correct labeling of the "sluchten" and "köpfe". The location marker and the orientation are not 100% accurate, but close enough...

Before the trip I had Heinz's seaside panos from Rügen in mind, #3032 and #17614. Sadly, I could not expect fresh green leaves on the trees, but I hope the brown trees are OK...When comparing with Heinz's, one can see that Møns Klint is more barren, suggesting more fresh and permanent erosion. Truly, parts of the cliff do fall in the sea at almost yearly intervals, so one should be careful. A few years ago some tourists even got killed from getting buried under a slide. The erosion is caused by a cykle of getting saturated with water during fall and winter, frost in the winter, and dryin up in the summer.

Pano made from 15 HF (RAW), 50 mm, f/8, 1/400, iso-200, developed in DPP (ALO off, daylight, neutral, moderate sharpness), PTgui, automatic colour correction, gamma correction, downscaling and sharpening in IrfanView.


Oha!! Great! ^^ KR Arno

Sort of "holy place" for East Germans until 1989, because of its visibility.
And holy enough for me to visit it on my first trip to Scandinavia in 1991.

Wow, very impressive!
Cheers, Danko.

An amazing cliff.

Mehr Kommentar folgt, da ich jetzt die heute auf dem höchsten Berg Berlins gemachten Bilder auswerten muß.

23:30 Uhr: Endlich wieder ein Panorama von Dir, Jan. Und wieder so eine feine Arbeit, mit der guten 50er Festbrennweite.
Herrlich, wie das frühe Licht besonders im linken Teil die zahlreichen Cliffs modelliert. Doch auch der rechte Teil mit dem Dronningestolen beeindruckt
Sommerspirspynten sieht aus wie die Wissower Klinken, die vor dem Absturz noch schöner waren. (Ich sollte mal noch die mittleren Tele-Aufnahmen aufbereiten, vielleicht schauen sich das mehr an als das mit Normal-Brennweite.)

A worthy counterpart to the steep coastal cliff line of Ruegen. Very Impressive.
Kind regards, Matthias.

Great view, perfectly presented. If these are "interruptions", at least I am very happy about any such interruption. Cheers, Martin

Thank you for the interest. @Heinz, yes I was very lucky with the light. Going out early gave light from the east, and thanks to the schleierwolken it was a soft light as can be seen on the modest shadows. Full sun would have given an almost blinding face with dark shadows. For my taste I could not have wanted it better. LG Jan.

Ausgezeichnete Aufnahme dieser beeindruckenden Steilküste.

After seeing those cliffs outoff 56 km distance from Hiddensee (Nr. 14494), I´m verry pleased to see these close-up view.

Der Blick zur dänischen Insel Moen war, wie es Arne einmal treffend formuliert hat, zu DDR-Zeiten so etwas wie der Inbegriff für einen "Sehnsuchts-Blick" - was aber wohl auch nur ehemalige DDR-Bürger verstehen. Man kann aber Moen bei guten Sichtbedingungen nicht nur von Hiddensee aus sehen, sondern auch, wie in meinem Panorama #10399, vom Kap Arkona aus - in 68 km Entfernung. Dort habe ich auch begründet, daß man aus dieser Entfernung nur den oberen Teil der Insel sehen kann. Der untere Teil verschwindet hinter dem viel näheren Meereshorizont.

"Shocking for Danish proportions"... This is somewhat like what we have in southern Sicily, where the white cliffs or Eraclea Minoa and Realmonte (N.17560) rise unexpected in an otherwise nearly flat stretch of coast.
