In My Town - 4 Ways Photography Challenge

 
 
We live in the suburbs of Copenhagen - it takes about 20 minutes to bike to downtown. I'm fond of the 3 lakes, that are situated about a stonecast away from our home - surrounded by parks, trees and bushes. That's where I often times go for a walk - and where we went together with the boys to play hide and seek, catch me if you can and just climb up to the trees etc., when they were small.
 
 
In the summertime the weather can get pretty warm. It is in the green areas, by the lakes and by the sea, that you feel the breeze. The biking lanes are very well organized all over Denmark - you can basically bike from here to Gotland, following the lanes through the country (well - you need to take either a train / bridge or a ferry to sail from Zealand to Jutland). The water is clean and suitable for swimming in the Canals of the city, where you find swimming facilities in different parts of the city.  
 


In the fall the town is clothed in red and yellow ... the leaves decorate the surroundings, and the bright autumn air is fresh. I like all seasons, but autumn is lovely in a special way. Time for apples and chesnuts, fresh walks and bike trips, and cozy gatherings.
 
 
Winters can be very cold, even if we don't get snow every year. The humid cold seeps into your bones ... So you need both gloves and hats to stay warm. The light is very special in the winter months. I like to bike to the City Lakes, meet up with a friend of mine and her dog, and walk around the lakes and enjoy the pale, bright light ... and a cup of tea-to-go :)
