It’s well below zero in Copenhagen and the sky is a matt, opaque plastic grey. A flat expanse of de-saturation.
Piercing this skyline is the classic yellow ochre that Danes typically paint their houses. Apparently composed of an iron ore base this colour has decorated architectural facades throughout Danish history and it’s a colour I have come to associate completely with this beautiful city. Of course on closer inspection there are a wide spectrum of tones and saturation of the colour and indeed of many other classic colours scattered around the city. A delicate pale milky blue, a burnt orange of the richest golden hue mottled by time and weather come together along the canal side. An architectural spectrum of elegant subtlety.
