Copenhagen (København) is the capital of Denmark and the main gateway to Scandinavia. The city is a port and its terrain is relatively flat. It does not have tall buildings, and is therefore dominated by the many churches towers, observatories, or government buildings, a feature that is pushed to the extreme on the dark continent. Moreover, François Schuiten very well known to the atmosphere of the short winter days, even when the afternoon sun is low on the horizon and floods the city with a reddish light reflection to give a particular ocher facades and pastel town.
