Denmark Day 745

København's Søerne ("The Lakes") have been frozen solid for weeks, now, but I haven't had a chance to pay much attention, camera-wise, since I've had some more important things to worry about, like where I was going to live after 31 January. That problem's been solved for the moment, so here goes:

Sortedams Sø and Sunday morning traffic on Øster Søgade.

Taken from my 3rd floor room in a University gæsteobolig (guest home). The lakes are pretty shallow, so there's no doubt they're frozen solid all the way to the bottom; basically they've been turned into a giant ice tray, with a layer of snow on top. Only under a couple of the bridges is there any unfrozen water remaining.

Buildings on Søtorvet.
Taken from somewhere on Sortedams Sø.

Sectional couch, island on Sortedams Sø.

I'm sure this little island has a local name, which I don't know, but the key thing is that this happens to be one of those years when it's accessible on foot. The couch looks kinda comfy.

Statues on Dronning Louises Bro.

That's Peblinge Sø behind them, with Søpavillionen in the far background. I'm sure she's saying something like "Damn, it's frickin' cold out! Why are we sitting here without our coats on?"

All photos taken 14 February 2010.

I have always been fond of outdoor couches. I can't find a non-UNH email address of yours, but give me a shout when you get a chance gbubnis --at--
