Photographer's Note

Nyhavn ("New Harbour") is a popular area in Copenhagen, Denmark with both locals and tourists. The street is lined with many small bars and restaurants facing out to a picturesque harbour.
It is the starting point for various canal tour excursions, and is located near Kongens Nytorv, at one end of Strøget, and near the start of Langelinie, which leads to Amalienborg Palace.
Nyhavn was built by King Christian V, and it once had a bad reputation on account of the concentration of sailors living in the neighborhood.
Danish author Hans Christian Andersen lived in Nyhavn for some years.
