Watercolor notes from an old coastal community

Ertholmene watercolor sketches

Ertholmene is a tiny, ancient coastal community, behind old canons and gigantic granite fortification walls, on some very, very small islands, out in harsh climate, situated in the middle of the Baltic Sea, half way between Scandinavia, Russia, Poland and Germany

Watercolors and text by Frits Ahlefeldt, Hiking.org

I went out to the Ertholmene islands with my watercolors and tent to study the trails, walls, old stone cottages and a very, very special place:

The Ertholmene exploration is part of my Danish Coastal Hiking Trail project

Here are some of the watercolors so far:
