If someone could identify the location it would be appreciated. Not sure if she is departing Copenhagen but the small ferry to the left looks like it's possibly a Danish DSB vessel

Many thanks for identifying the location. I thought that the castle looked Danish plus the small DSB ferry but I couldn't identify the exact location.

Much appreciated, I will add the location to the photo as being Helsingor.

Regards

Sean
