Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse

In 1994 I was the first time at Rubjerg Knude. This lighthouse is located on the coast of the North Sea in Rubjerg, in the Jutland municipality of Hjørring.

At this time I bought my first analog camera - a small analog APS camera. Unfortunately I can't remember the brand.



Both shifting sands and coastal erosion are a serious problem in the area. The coast is eroded on average 1.5 metres a year. Built around 1250, the church was originally 1 kilometre from the coast, but was dismantled in 2008 to prevent its falling into the sea.

Last year I went with my brother again to the Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse and I made this aerial footage with a Gopro Hero3 and a DJI Phantom 2:

By 2009, the small buildings were severely damaged by the pressure of the sand and were later removed. It is expected that the tower will fall into the sea by 2023.
