Officially, the Inner Lakes of Copenhagen, the Lakes (Søerne) are a row of three small rectangular lakes on the western edge of the city center. The Lakes date back to the middle ages when they formed part of the fortifications of the city. The paths around the Lakes stretch for about 6 kilomaters and are a popular with bikers and runners.

At night, old school neon ads light up some of the buildings around the lakes. I took the picture on a late January evening. I wanted a longer exposure to make the reflections in the water a bit more smooth. But just as I was about to take the longer exposure I ran out of battery. I didn't get a chance to go back and so had to stick with a shorter 2 second exposure instead.
