Simested Aa (River), North Jutland

Many years ago I took a photo of an almost undisturbed Bronze Age landscape in the north of Denmark.
A small river winding its way through a meadow, backed by Bronze Age tumuli - a refreshing sight, compared with the disappearance of waterways through drainage or canalisation.

Ripe for a painting - and here it is.
An early summer evening with a full moon:
