young elk at Skansen

Skansen is a museum village right in the centre of Stockholm showing many wooden buildings from Sweden.
It also has a nice zoo with domestic animals including elk and bears.
This young elk obviously still had some problems to coordinate 4 long legs…

Nightfall in Finland.

Night is falling in Finland
Even when the weather is “bad”, it can be highly photogenic in Finland.
Here, a little bit of rain is falling on Puruvesi lake shortly after sunset (Enanlahti near Punkaharju).
Although it never gets really dark at night, it’s already too late in July for real “midnight sun”.

Stockholm Sunset

Sunset in Stockholm
This is a picture that just happened - I saw the sky turn red and the silhouette of the iron Spire of Riddarholm Church, so I walked over the next bridge and shot this.
I then tried to improve on the shot by using the “Katarina Hissen” (an elevator with a spectacular view) to a viewing platform, but it was not possible to get the setting sun directly behind the church.

There are lots of flowers near the lake, but I especially like the thistles.
