Grazing Sheep, Denmark, 1998

Photograph by Bob Krist

Puffy clouds and grazing sheep make a postcard-perfect scene in Denmark’s Jutland Peninsula. A craggy projection of northern Europe, the Jutland Peninsula is an 11,496-square-mile (29,775-square-kilometer) spread of land that makes up continental Denmark. The generally low-lying, flood-prone peninsula was named after a Germanic tribe, the Jutes.
