Same CD with light behind. Didn’t have any sunlight at the photo op.

Samma CD belyst bakifrån. Hade inget solljus att tillgå när jag tog kortet.

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 legenden. Sedan dess kallar de allra flesta fyren för Julafton. Fyren leder antagligen också fotoligan över turistfotografier från Trosa.

Trosa archipelago has a lighthouse that no one with boat passing by can miss. The name of the lighthouse is Bokö lighthouse, but people call it Christmas Eve lighthouse since beginning of time, or the lighthouse beginning of time… A shipwreck on a Christmas Eve gave the place the name says the legend.

I år fyller fyren 150 år. Fyren har sedan urminnes tider inspirerat till fotografier och målningar. Fyren bär också på många historier om människorna, som haft anknytning dit under olika generationer.

This year the lighthouse turns 150 years young. Many stories, photos and paintings is to find about this lighthouse. I have done som art for an example 🙂

Julaftons fyr in cardboard

   
 
We have a lighthouse in Trosa archipelago with the name “Julafton” which in English is Christmas eve.

The story says that a ship was in mayday mode near the lighthouse, but the crew manage to survive. Since then the lighthouse is called Christmas eve lighthouse.

It is one of the most photographed object in Trosa. Almost every boat that travels in Trosa archipelago passes by the lighthouse.

I’ve build the place in cardboard, just for fun. It is interesting to build things of reused cardboard and paint it.

You can try for your self and see how fun it is 😉

Endangered/Utrotningshotade

In my country Sweden, we have several endangered species. In this painting I let a lighthouse, that also is endangered, put some light over a bird and a fish that belongs to protected species.

With pastels on colored paper I get an extra color effect.

Den här målningen belyser några av våra hotade arter inklusive fyren, som också lever under nedläggningshot. Ni kanske känner igen skarven, som faktiskt tillhör våra fridlysta arter. I vattnet simmar en fisk, som till exempel kanske tillhör torsksläktet.


Pastellkritor på färgat papper ger en extra effekt åt bilden.
