21-Jul-2013 -- Coming back from our vacation in Greenland, we had one day to spend in Copenhagen for our onward travel to Zurich. After our arrival, we rented a car at Copenhagen airport and crossed the Øresund Bridge. We arrived at the confluence after dusk, so we spent the night under the stars at a nearby field.
The next morning, we walked over to the confluence, which is located at the outskirts of the village Ekeby. From the main road Truedstorp Norra, it is a short walk of 160 m to the confluence point, which is in the middle of a wheat field. The closest that I could get without stepping into the crops was 17 m. Unfortunately, some confluencers (i.e. see visit of August 5th this year) are still determined to step into the crops and publish such behaviour online.
The sun was just above the horizon, such that the pictures came out very differently, depending on the direction. In particular, the view east does not show much detail due to the glaring sun.
