Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece

Here are some pictures from our recent trip to Skagen, the northernmost town of Denmark, known as the Land of Light. The town owes its title to its special, otherworldly form of light that is unique to that place. For years, Skagen has drawn artists from all over the world to capture this place’s spectacular views. The town has been an inspiration to many artists’ masterpiece; the raw beauty of its nature a masterpiece in itself.

Masterpiece. No matter where you are (and where you’ve been), I’m certain you’ve stumbled upon something extraordinary: a place that blows your mind; a work of art or object that speaks to you; or even a location or scene that’s special, unusual, or even magical in some way.

  7. While the sunset shots of excellent, the one I find most interesting is the bit of sand with the two bodies of water on either side. Thanks for sharing these.
