Landscape

The last, few days, I’ve seen a tremendous amount of landscape photos going around in the blogosphere. There was a challenge that I missed out on, I think. Anyway, this led me to think about that shooting landscape doesn’t really seem to be my thing. Perhaps you must have a special «eye» for landscape?! I have an eye for ducks.

Nevertheless, one picture came to mind … a landscape photo that hardly anyone would have missed out on. It was shot the 1st of October last year, north of Härnösand, Sweden.

The day before, my friend had bought her life’s first DSLR camera … a Canon, which had a special offer so that she got three lenses with it. Of course, she was eager to get out and shoot, so this gorgeous Saturday we drove a bit north and out, towards the sea. There are oodles of quaint, picturesque, little fisher villages up there, but to start with our mind was set on the big bridge … Höga Kusten-bridge. We started out early, so we had breakfast at the hotel there. Imagine that — sitting outside on their patio, in the sun, having breakfast the first day of October in northern Sweden! The weather was just unbelievable for that time of year.

After shooting the bridge, we went on, without a plan … just driving around the gorgeous country-side, chatting like magpies [we’ve known each other since we were twelve!], listening to old goodies from the 60’s, lauging and halting as soon as we saw anything, even remotely, picture-worthy.

After this trip, I realize, more than ever, how much photos mean when it comes to reminiscing …

  1. You wouldn’t know by these photos that it may not be your favorite thing. They are good and really take you there.
    Who or what is that on the island in Sweden?

    1. Thank you, Cindy and good to see you! 🙂

      I have no idea, but someone apparently built a summer camp there! We just saw it and stopped immediately as it looked so cute ..

  2. Who says you don’t have an eye for landscape photography? That first one looks pretty good to me. The little island in the middle of the water caught my interest!
    Photographs are so valuable, especially looking at old ones – they bring back so many memories!

    1. Thanks Barb … well ..I don’t know, it’s just rare that I feel like it. There’s one spot here on the road to Sussex, by the river, that I’d like to shoot but it’s divided highway and nowhere to stop. It’s just rolling country-side with the river, but there is something appealing about it… Some time I might get it 🙂

  3. Lovely photos. Landscapes are ok. I have other interests I like more — flowers, plants, wild life. I take far too many photos, but that is just me. Wanting to hold on to every moment.

    1. Yeah, it must be something really special to capture my interest, when it comes to landscape. Birds and wild-life — that’s what I like the most..

  4. Hi,
    I love the photo of your landscape, very nice indeed, it is a very clear photo, and that incredible Island in the middle, you have captured it right in the middle of the U that is visible between the trees, it really is a beautiful photo. 🙂

  5. That little island looks like the perfect party spot. Cool suspension bridge too… we have one of them about 10 miles from me, spanning the James River.

    1. Yes, I thought that little island was cute, with the house on it.
      I’ve been up on top on one of those pylons while the bridge was under construction …

    1. Thank you, C.B. That whole area is extremely picturesque, but that little island was really something, we thought. I took a very cheap flight via Iceland..

    1. Thank you, Sartenada …also for stopping by and commenting 🙂 Hope you’ll come back..

    1. Thank you so much … Yes, on a day like that, I think it would be very peaceful there 🙂
      You have a great day too..
