Another lake – Abborrsjön

Last year when I was in this area of Sweden in the summer, I had a little stop at a lake. and ever since moving here I was very curious to visit that lake again, because it is not very far from my home. It would have been super interesting to see it in the…

Summer nights and the village

With the nights becoming brighter, I become less tired and less willing to sleep. I have all this energy and I usually don't get tired in the evenings before 01:00h if even at all. I have absolutely no trouble sleeping once I close the curtains and lie in bed, but who does that without being…

Bright nights

Another evening by the lake, while I am still mesmerized by how long the sun is up and how bright the nights have become. At the moment the sun is up from 3:09h-22:30h and the nights are not getting dark anymore and haven't been dark for several weeks now. Tom teaches me how to fish…

Evening at the lake

A neighbor I recently talked to gave me the advice to check out the other shore of the nearby lake Grössjön. So I did. I went there with my drone so I could take pictures from many different angles. I hadn't used my drone in such a long time and I was so glad to…

Water and ice

Before the ice finally melted I took a walk in the forest and up to Grössjön and took some last pictures at the lake while some of the ice was still on it. The forest was finally free of snow, so I was able to walk through the woods around the lake a bit and…

Summer days

Those last few days have been so warm again. The drought has more or less come to an end. There has been some rain, but it came too late to save many of the trees. Lots of them have already shed their leaves and despite the ongoing warmth and sunshine all of the surroundings already…

Explorations

For a few days, I drove around quite a bit to explore the area around where I was staying in Sweden and see the different landscapes this place had to offer. I followed some small streets and found little creeks and lakes in the middle of the forest. The sun was shining so bright, that…

Into the forest

Yesterday evening I drove around a bit to explore the area around Örnsköldsvik. I found this remote road, leading deep into the forest. I stoped the car and got out to explore a bit of the forest nearby. It was beautiful in the evening light of the (seemingly) soon setting sun. After spending some time…

Mild summer nights

Those mild summer nights are the most beautiful times of the year! Hearing the noise of chirring crickets and croaking frogs accompanies the change of light so well. I love just being outdoors, listening to those sounds, feeling the mild air on my skin and watching the sky change its colors from blue to yellow,…

Cozy evenings

Even though it is the middle of summer, I can't help but think back to the last winter I had. Maybe, because the weather this year is so unusually hot, that I long for the cold and quiet of winter. Never had I ever seen that much snow in only a few months! It started…
