    Gorgeous rich tones in this Kira – and terrific detail. I love how the eyes can wander between the arches and into the path beyond. Simply wonderful.

  • Thanks Sharon – I’m glad you enjoy this one. :-))))
    Difficult to do it justice – there are 4 elephants – the two others are facing the other way. You can just catch a glimpse of them. This is only part of the old brewery – it’s a magnificent place.

  • Thank you for the compliment Shane. I hope you do get a chance to go to Copenhagen sometime – so much to see here in this old city :-)

    Thanks Kira. I never got to see that while I lived in DK. Nice of you to put it in. Great shot.

  • Thank you for your kind comment and the fav. I can tell you that a huge plan has been made for the whole area since they moved the actual brewing. The old buildings will stay but the rest will go to make room for 500 dwellings.
