Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
It would be a bit boring if we only visited places where we have already been a couple of times, so here is something new: the Damestenen, literally the Woman Stone.
What exactly is it? According to this website,
Damestenen is not originally from Denmark, it was brought here from the southern Sweden by ithe Baltic Glacier under the last ice age, and is called a boulder. The stone is 10 meters tall, has a circumference of 45.8 meters and weighs 1000 tons. Damestenen consists of medium-grained granite, it is red-gray and in several places it has narrow strip of the igneous rock diabase.
Where is it located?
During former excursions, we had seen road signs to this stone, but somehow we never seemed to have time to go there. In the meantime, we had become very curious, so this time we simply had to have a look at it. And we were impressed!
