Damselflies/ Flicksländor vid Krankesjön.

On my way to a friend I had a quick stop at a lake close by. Turned out to be a short stop because the mosquitos loved me and I wasn’t prepared for them at all. But I just had to get some pictures of the damselflies that seemed to be everywhere. Red and blue, big and small and just lovely./ På väg till en kompis häromdagen tog jag vägen förbi Krankesjön ute på Revingehed. Det blev ett kort stopp för myggen gillade mig och jag var inte ens förberedd på att de skulle vara där. Stoppet var tillräckligt långt för att få till några bilder på några olika flicksländor som var precis överallt. Blåa, röda, stora, små och alldeles underbara.

Magical morning rays of light. Magiska morgonstrålar. ( Fyledalen, Sweden)

15 000 years ago in connection with the end of the ice age this valley was created. The valley has great biological and geological value. Beech forest that has been allowed to grow wild and old. Frogs and reptiles flourish. Common and rare birds of prey thrives in the surroundings. All species of bats that are known in Sweden have been found here and red deer likes the area. The area is often called northern Europes best place for winter bird watching for eagles.

Fyledalen skapades för ca 15 000 år sedan då istiden tog slut. Dalen har stora biologiska och geologiska värden. Ädelträskog som tillåts växa vild och bli gammal. Grodor och kräldjur trivs. Vanliga och ovanliga rovfåglar stortrivs i omgivningarna. Sveriges olika sorters fladdermöss finns här och hjortar rör sig i marken. Området kallas för norra Europas bästa ställe för  vinter fågelskådning av örnar.

I’m waiting for the polar bears….

our little nook of the world looks like the arctic today….I wouldn’t be surprised if a polar bear would reveal itself on the ice along our shore !

The ice age is here

A snow storm hit us hard Tuesday and it hasn’t let go of us yet. Hard winds and more snow has made our roads dangerous to drive on. Buses and trains don’t run. Schools are open for those who can walk there. I’m “trapped” out here in the countryside so what to do? Of course I just had to get some picture of all this. It was a little difficult since it was snowing so hard. The lens got snowy as soon as I took out my camera.

First time I’ve seen the water frozen in the harbor. Can’t be good for the boats that are still in the “ice”.

A snow dune that looked like a sand dune that had been built up along the fishing huts.

On the other side the fishing huts where all winter dressed.

The water closest to the shore looked like a slushy drink.

The ice is building up and I couldn’t help but think of the ice age. Is it coming back?

Winter dressed trees and bushes are so beautiful though.

On the day three years ago I sat out here and had my coffee in the sun. (Facebook reminded me today)I washed the windows and did some gardening. Today we didn’t have coffee out here. It was hot coco with rum weather, inside by the fire place. Oops forgot the whipped cream on top.

Sandhammaren , a preserve on the south coast of Sweden.

Today I went to Sandhammaren to test some things with my camera. So different around here in the wintertime. A lot less beach but more sea. No people ! Regardless of what time of the year it’s a  favorite place of mine. Love to go for  walks on the endless beach. Today I went to work with my camera. Testing a filter.

refreshed and freezing cold  I left this special place curious of how my pictures would turn out. What do you think?

Supersuper moon visited us tonight.

The sky was filled with dark clouds and I could not see the moon until all of a sudden…. I grabbed my camera and ran down to the shore and got there just in time for it to disappear behind some massive clouds again !  Im not the one who gives up so I waited and waited, freezing my fingers off for around 20 minutes  but then it showed up from behind the dark clouds. it really was a supersuper moon. Wonder if I will get some sleep at all tonight..maybe I will be out howling?

tonight was good practice since it’s not easy to catch the moon.

Kullens light station

is the  highest one in Sweden. Situated at 187.5 meters and it dates all the way back to 1561. Since 1751 more than 200 ships have become wrecks outside the horn with it’s treacherous rocks. Nowadays it’s a popular diving site because of the wrecks and very clear water.

all of a sudden I saw the sun right in the middle of the light station. Now that’s what I call solar energy.

stunning scenery. We where here early in the morning so we couldn’t climb up into the light station since it doesn’t open until 11.00 !!
