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…

Favourite place

At the moment one of my favourite places is at lake Grössjön. It is not far from my home and only takes a few minutes to drive there by car. It is a wonderful place to fish, has a little hut and a fire place and is just perfect to hang out by a campfire,…

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…

Rain rain rain

I have not been so active lately, because I was sick... After many beautiful days and nights in May, with lots of sunlight and blue skies, some rainy days came. I know it might sound strange, but I was very happy about the rain. After all water brings life and fertility to the land and…

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…

Little explorations

For a long time I had wanted to check out a bit more of the other side of the lake Graningesjön. Everytime I drive to or from Solleftea, I come by this one place on the road, where you have an amazing view on the lake and on what seems to be an island. I…

Spring with all its power

After days of darkness the sun finally came back. Of course I had an incredible urge to go out into nature and just enjoy the mild winds and soft warm sunbeams on my face. All trees are exploding in different shades of green and I am amazed to watch it. Soon there will be now…

Västanåfallet

Not far from my home and basically on the way to Sundsvall is a waterfall. It is so close to the way, that you can already see it from the parking lot, while it is remote enough to offer an enjoyable feeling of solitude in nature and the forest. I had been curious about it…

Spring days and nights

While it was warm and sunny during the days in April, as soon as the sun vanished it got cold again. However the nights got shorter and shorter and stopped reaching 100% darkness. Most of the time at least a very faint gloom of light was visible at the horizon. This photo I took at…

Evening Fishing

Now that the days grow longer and warmer, I can learn more fishing techniques than just ice-fishing. At the moment there aren't a lot of mosquitos yet, so it is very cozy to sit by the water and just enjoy the sounds of nature (birds singing, water flowing by, wind gently waft through trees) and…
