Ny havn

This is a photo from Ny Havn or new harbor in Danish, one of the oldest parts of Copenhagen. The Danes and tourists alike were enjoying being outside on this beautiful day, stolling along the water and spending time in the cafes. I loved the colorful buildings. Hans Christian Anderson lived along this Harbor, just a few houses down from here.

With that perspective it looks as if you were on a boat taking this picture.

Maybe they have colourful houses so that they contrast with the long hours of darkness in the winter. It cheers everyone up.

Lovely shot - seems quite unchanged since we were there four years ago although it feels like only yesterday. Thanks for the reminder.

It would seem that this is a preserved area, a historic district. Yet with all the TV antennas (no cable) people live and work there, keeping it alive. Agree, you must have been on the water to take this bright and cheery photo!

Ny Havn, it just came to me, that is likely where the New Haven, CT name originated. Don't know if the New Haven, CT waterfront is as colorful, though, but think probably not, based on my last visit there.

Very colourful. Looks like you were lucky with the weather.
