Photographer's Note

This is part II of a short series about a piece of Denmark which is seldom visited: Ertholmene archipelago, literally the "pea islands".
They can be found in the Baltic Sea one hour off Bornholm and form the easternmost part of Denmark.
There are 9 islands, two of them inhabited. Christiansų, the main island, bears a maritime fortress including a fortified harbour for the Danish fleet since 1684. The small natural harbour lies between her and neighbouring Frederiksų island and shows a narrow pedestrian bridge between the two of them.
Although the military use was terminated in 1855, the islands are still administered by the Danish Ministry of Defense. There are no cars, and in winter time, the only connection with civilization is the daily postal ship from Gudhjem which you can see here.
View from Christiansų across the northern part of the harbour towards Frederiksų with the Small Tower.
I understand that there is a modern catamaran ferry now, but this capture is 38 years old, was taken on slide film with Canon A1 and professionally digitalized.
