Morning drawings – Morgonteckningar August 16-17 2018

Sweden archipelago - svensk Östersjöskärgård It's now almost dark at 4:30 in the morning. I have trouble with details. It's too dark to see them. When I'm finished around 4:50 the light has come, but then it's too late for me to correct errors.  I really like this morning drawing sessions. I recommend you try… Continue reading Morning drawings – Morgonteckningar August 16-17 2018

Kayak evening – kajaker i skymning

When I was thinking it's time to sleep I saw these two kayakers out at sea the other night. När jag började tänka  på läggdagstid härom kvällen fick jag syn på dessa paddlare.  A perfect kayak evening. No big waves and nature silence. Peaceful. En perfekt kajakkväll. Spegelblankt vatten och naturens underbara tystnad. Fridfullt. Anna

Two cooler mornings with temperatures around 15 C and not 22 C at 4:30-ish time. It feels good, but also a little sad. Fall is soon here and summer is probably over. That went very fast. Then again, the forecast says it's gonna be 30 C again soon in the days. Failed to draw clouds… Continue reading Morning drawings Morgonteckningar August 5-6 2018


Morning drawings Morgonteckningar July 26-27 2018

I have found a peaceful way of make drawings that I hope will be a habit. I've only tried it for two days but I really like to get up early in the morning, get outside and draw something the very first thing I do before the world around me wakes up. Jag har hittat… Continue reading Morning drawings Morgonteckningar July 26-27 2018

Göta kanal-båt Summer tour boats

Ett säkert sommartecken dök upp utanför Trosa häromdagen. Göta kanalbåtarna har börjat sina turer igen och de passerar Trosa skärgård. Förr gick de in till Trosa hamn, men det har de slutat med tror jag att döma av deras resväg på hemsidan. Summer is her in Sweden when the Göta canal boats starting their tours… Continue reading Göta kanal-båt Summer tour boats

Snatteränder – Gadwalls

This year I discovered a new kind of ducks around our place in archipelago. It's not the usual mallards that use to be around. They're similar to mallards but this is gadwalls. I år har jag upptäckt en ny sorts and i vårt område i skärgården. Vanligvis simmar gräsänder omkring i viken, men detta är… Continue reading Snatteränder – Gadwalls

A magic evening in archipelago

I live in a place that is heaven on earth. Some evenings are magic. When you go down to the seaside you can, if you are carefully and quiet, be part of nature. At least it feels like that when the birds around you don't take a hike as soon as they see you. I… Continue reading A magic evening in archipelago

Last boat day this summer – sista båtturen denna sommar

To the right Bokö-Askö nature reserve. Up - clouds with some rain soon coming. Till höger (styrbord) i bild Bokö-Askö naturreservat. En ö där bland annat havsörnen syns ofta.

Julaftons fyr – Christmas Eve lighthouse 150 år years

Trosa skärgård har en fyr, som i stort sett alla, som far söder eller norröver i inre farleden omöjligt kan missa. Fyren heter egentligen Bokö fyr, men i folkmun går den under namnet Julaftons fyr. Den fick sitt udda namn en julaftons natt för många år sedan när ett fartyg förliste alldeles i närheten, säger… Continue reading Julaftons fyr – Christmas Eve lighthouse 150 år years

I went to my church

I've said it before and I say it again. Nature is my church. Especially archipelago nature where my home is. Nothing beat this in my book. Can you believe there are people who wants to destroy this beautiful piece of paradise? I will fight as long as I can to preserve nature.  Have a great… Continue reading I went to my church

Kayak water

Soon I hope I get time for some kayaking.  This is also why I'm fighting for nature. Can you imagine that some people wants to destroy archipelago life?  It's heaven on earth, still some think they can improve it by exploitation. I like the archipelago just the way it is. Everyday we can watch many… Continue reading Kayak water

White throated dipper – Strömstare

Today I saw something amazing. Two dippers in the outer archipelago. They are so fascinating to watch. They look like a ordinary land bird, with tiny legs. But that bird is like a mini mini penguin in water. The bird dive and swim. When they are up on land they do funny thing with their… Continue reading White throated dipper – Strömstare
