you never know what’s coming out of that…..

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.

First morning of 2018

Today the first of Jan 2018 started out along the shore together with my dear friend Katrin. Almost no wind and a couple of degrees celsius.

Im happy to have a friend who inspires me when my inspiration is low. She’s a great artist and takes such artistic -esthetic pictures.

A winter morning treasure hunt

I must confess that it was the building in itself that caught my attention. Love the architecture. It’s amazing what they can do…..

At the southernmost point in Sweden.

Yesterday we decided to go to the southernmost tip, Smygehuk to get some lunch and have a walk (they have yummy food from the sea here)

DSC_5115.1

we didn’t walk down to THE tip because the waves would have got us really wet because it was windy , almost storm…

DSC_5114.1

notice that it’s closer to Moscow1524 km,  than to Treriksröset 1572 km, which is in Sweden !
