#142 Feeling free

I took a trip to the sea, the other day. I was away for work, and had som time to spare between assignments. I found this small harbour in the outer archipelago and parked the car. I was completly alone in the harbour. Just me and the sea. The wind was blowing rather strong and…

#138 The Hills of Brösarp

The Hills of Brösarp are situated in the most southern part of the most southern county in Sweden; Skåne. The hills are famous in Sweden from several movies and paintings – but more important; they are a really beautiful place to visit. We spent a weekend in Skåne, hiking with some old friends. The weather…

#134 Natures Art

The spring is starting to show it self in our parts of Sweden. It is still only the first days of March, and the weather can change to winter again – but at the moment we have a green nature. Yesterday we found these fantastic cliffs with large icicles everywhere. I can’t remember seeing something…

#133 The Sea

There is something special about the sea. Maybe it is because I have moved away from it? I lived in Helsingborg my first 25 years – a city also called ”The Pearl of the straight” (…at least by the locals). In 1997 I moved away from the sea – and I have missed it ever…

#132 Project Update

My project “Nature Reserves in Östergötland” is slowly moving forward. To date I have visited 14 reserves – which means that I have almost only scratched the surface. But I must say that the project has been a positive thing in these crazy times. We have hiked in the Swedish nature along with friends on…

#125 About a picture

The Central Station in Mjölby a late afternoon in January 2020. Commuters on their way home from work in the tunnel. People waiting for tha train by the track above. I kind of like that there are things happening in several places in the picture. The woman in the upper right corner almost seems to…

#116 Project Update

As a step in my on going project ”Nature Reserves in Östergötland” I today visited the one closest to home; Solberga. I have driven past the sign hundreds of times the last twenty years, but never stopped. Today I did. Like most Nature Reserves, Solberga probably shows it best side in the summertime, but I…

#114 A Project for 2021

Today we started a small project for 2021; to try and visit all Nature Reserves in Östergötland (the Province we live in). It can be quite a challenge – there are 283 of them. Yesterday my wife found a map and a list with check boxes for each and every one of them, and we…

#110 A short stop on the way home

In the middle of September I was on my way home from a job assignment in Växjö, in the heart of Småland (in the southern parts of Sweden). The weather was great and I felt like having a break. I found this old Mill Town called Klavreström where I stopped the car. Beside me on…

#109 The unexpected is often what you remember

One morning we woke up and decided to just take the car, drive north and take a small road up in the mountains (hills). No plan. No internet. No map. Just drive and see where we ended up. The road was carved in the slopes and took us through a fantastic landscape. The views were…

# 108 Back to Ireland

In 2005 I made my first – and so far only – trip to Ireland. It was a short trip, filled with new impressions and – of course – photography. My camera of choice back then was a Fujifilm S2 Pro – a 6MP digital SLR, based on a Nikon body. Little did I know…

#107 An M4 and a roll of T-Max 100

Back in June things started to go back to normal again. Covid-19 suddenly did not feel like that much of a threat anymore. As the summer got closer – Corona went further away. We started to get reckless – and now it has finally caught up with us. I went out i Linköping, with my…
