Sandwich Tern in Sjælland

03-1330r34

I like terns. I like their way of flying, with fast and precise dives into the sea. I found the Sandwich tern somehow more fascinating, with its yellow-tipped black bill. It’s not common, and I saw some of them only a couple of times in the very north Jylland, on the beach near Skagen.

Sunrise in Møns Klint

møns klint, at 6.07

The 23. march 2012 was a neat and dry night, and I went again in Møns Klint, circa 130Km south of Copenhagen. Møn’s cliffs are oriented to East, so the first sunlight paints the white chalk in red and orange. That day, the sunrise was scheduled at 6.04 (CET time).

Madeira is an archipelago, indeed. In all the previous posts, I referred to Madeira as an island, and actually the largest one has the same name. But in some photos one can see other three islands nearby in the ocean, called Ilhas Desertas, or just las Desertas. Here from Ponta São Lourenço:

Madeira – The laurel forest

Fanal (til Lagoa, 1105m)

When the portuguese officially landed in Madeira in 1418 (but the archipelago was already mentioned before), the island was almost completely covered by a sub-tropical forest, that gave the name to the island (Madeira means wood in portuguese).
