Photographer's Note

The photo shows the Flensburg Fjord (also known as Flensburg Firth) at Catherinesminde Tiles and Brick Museum near Broager in Southern Jutland the day after a heavy thunder storm.

Clouds have dominated the Danish summer this year, thanks to a jet stream whose high level winds are tracking farther south than normal, spinning up low pressure systems over the Bay of Biscay. Instead of the sunshine we were longing for, we've seen storms.
The deluges are due to the European monsoon weather phenomenon - named after its more powerful Indian monsoon counterpart. The so-called European Monsoon is not actually a monsoon at all. It is more an ill-defined phenomenon that generally applies to a return of westerly winds in June and July following a weakening in the late spring of the more typical westerly winds we see in Northern Europe.

This year it is a very poor early summer outlook we have to face with further heavy showers or longer spells of rain.
