Weekly Photo Challenge: Horizon

This week Sara at the Weekly Photo Challenge writes: Horizon. The space or line where the sky meets the earth. So many places where the sky meets the earth around the world, and millions of interactions between two elements. It can be water, a city skyline, a forest, a wasteland, a desert, a sunset outside your bedroom window.

There are, of course, different kinds of horizons in life beyond the external physical world. There are, for example, mental horizons, thinking new (even sometimes old, yet valuable and time-tested true) and creative thoughts that are life changing. There are emotional horizons, experiencing certain feelings that open up new opportunities in life for health and healing. There are spiritual horizons, which draw us into deeper and closer relationships with others, the world and God, and shed light on life’s ultimate meaning and purpose.

Hope you enjoy my entry this week, the photos were taken back in 2007 on our holiday in Denmark.  Please check out the other entries here.

Never look down to test the ground before taking your next step; only he who keeps his eye fixed on the far horizon will find the right road.

As soon as I finish one thing, there’s always something else on the horizon I want to do. I don’t have any intention of retiring from anything.

The original Norman-Romanesque cathedral was built in the 12th century. This is its reconstructed version, built between 1864-76.  Inside the cathedral are the frescoes of painter Joakim Skovgaard, depicting the biblical accounts from creation through to the risen, ascended and enthroned Christ.
