In the middle of the Watten Sea is one of those gems you don’t find unless you really know what you’re looking for. Chef Jacob Sullestad runs a country inn from 1722 – but with a modern and super intense local cuisine based on the things that grow strong in a fierce part of the Danish nature, lying exposed to the North Sea. Photograper Claes Bech-Poulsen shared these images of the feel from Fanø and the lovely, lovely Sønderho Kro. Pure photo porn.
