I did another CD painting 🙂

Jag har gjort en CD-målning till 🙂


The lighthouse in Trosa archipelago called Christmas Eve.

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.

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. Uppåt i bild – regnmoln som inom kort håller vad de lovar 😉


We did a short landing on a little shore on Askö and found this. I don’t know it’s name but I think the leaves are beautiful.

Vi gick i land en kort stund på Askö på en liten strand och fann denna buske. Jag har ingen aning om vad den heter men bladen fångade min uppmärksamhet. Så vackra.

Then the rain came and we went home to mainland.

Sen kom regnet och vi fort hem till fastlandet.


Bokö-Askö and a rainbow. Regnbågen 🙂

Last boat day for this season but I hope for some more kayak tours before the w season.

Sista båtturen för säsongen men jag hoppas på några kajakturer till före den kallare säsongen.

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 🙂

Ett stort grattis på födelsedagen till Julaftons fyr i Trosa skärgård, må du leva i minst 150 år till för att vägleda sjöfarare rätt.

So, a big congratulations on your birthday Christmas Eve Lighthouse in Trosa archipelago, may you live at least 150 years more to guide ships in the night.

Askölab June 17 2017

Once a year the Askö laboratory in Trosa archipelago open for the public.

The place is part of Baltic sea center. Marine biology research is going on constantly out there.

You can read about the Baltic sea weed research at the blog Balticseaweed/Tångbloggen.

At www.itrosa.se you can read about the day at Askölab.

It was a wonderful day and so exciting to sea all the different animals living in the sea.

I made a drawing of the day 🙂

And here’s a photo. You can see more photos at itrosa.se

Askö runt Sailboat race in Trosa 2016

Saturday 13 August 2016 it’s time for the sailboat race Askö runt in Trosa Archipelago.

I like sailboats.

Just look at this




I hope the Askö Runt sailors get a good nice windy day 🙂

How do you feel about boats?

Kayak morning

Kayak mornings are like heaven on earth. To be in nature silence watching all greatness and feel you can be a part of that miracle is an experience I truly cherish.


I live in Trosa archipelago very near Askö nature reserve. It’s always grand nature experience kayaking in this area.


Almost no wind makes paddling easy and very soundless.


Bokö/Askö island


No words needed for this view, or?


Baltic sea , seaweed.


This little Island in the middle gave me the idea to this picture:


Archipelago candy, jelly rats 🙂

Kayaking is one of my favorite things, can you see why?

Paint on rocks Julaftons fyr Trosa archipelago

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/5fa/36804312/files/2014/12/img_2176.jpg

One of The town Trosa’s most painted and photographed subject. The lighthouse called Christmas eve in Trosa archipelago.

Ett av Trosas mest avbildade motiv. Julaftons fyr i Trosa skärgård.
Nu har jag förevigat fyrvaktarstället på sten som snökula 🙂

En utmaning att måla på tredimensionella ytor, som egentligen inte alls motsvarar verklighetens räta linjer. Men resultatet ser rätt kul ut med sina krumbuktiga former.

Pröva gärna att måla på sten själva. Väldigt kul.

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 😉

A great day at Askö Laboratory in Trosa Archipelago

Being a tourist in your own town or achipelago can be very fun.

Just look at this day trip.

Time to go home after a great day. I want to be a marine scientist in my next life.

  
On our way home we see Trosas most photograhed object. Julaftons fyr (Christmas lighthouse)

   
 

I live in a very beautiful place on earth. Days like this reminds me of how lucky I am. Love the sea and archipelago. I was almost born at sea or at least very young when I get on a boat the first time.

Hope you enjoyed the trip in Trosa archipelago 🙂

Julaftons fyr i vinterdräkt

Vi har nu nått froststadiet på vintern. Vi börjar dessutom närma oss julmånaden december.
Oavsett hur stort motstånd vi egentligen kanske vill göra mot vinterns intåg och årets slut kommer vinterbilderna fram i tankarna så här års tycker jag.

Kan också bero på att jag alldeles nyligen bläddrade igenom Magasin Skärgård, som i vinternumret bjuder på fantastiska vinterbilder. I den tidningen kan ni finna en artikel om just Julaftons fyr i Trosa skärgård.

När jag såg den artikeln kom jag i håg att jag faktiskt för några år sedan ritade en Julaftons fyr-bild i bivaxkritor. Så här ser den ut.
