Wrecks in Denmark

Each image to the left represents a larger image collection of a wreck (Name found below each image). To zoom in on the collection of a wreck, just click the representing image.

When it comes to shipwrecks, Denmark is among the richest countries in the world. Just from the central part of the Jutland Westcoast to the north, more than 10.000 ships are known as wrecks. You might belive that Denmark is a true paradise for the wreckdiver, but this is only the half part of the story. Very hard weatherconditions makes diving along the Jutland West Coast impossible most days of the year. Futhermore, the visibility underwater is often very poor and dark. A sixhour trip with car and boat, had resuleted in a dive with zero visibility, many times. This can be quite frustrating, especially for an underwaterphotographer. Even with the best equipment money can buy, underwaterphotography is impossible under such conditions. Dispite of many many disappointing dives along the danish coast of the North Sea, dives with a ten meter visibility, or even more, does happend. Such experiences make it all worth to do, but when you see a nice, clear collection of my wreckphotos, it has often required several visits and filmrolls, at the same wreck. On a good day, diving a wreck really feels like going back in time. Often the history of the wreckage stands so clear in your mind when you have it all in front of you.
