Looking down at the blue sky

A Circular Hole

A Skywatch photo with a difference. This is a drilled circular ice hole. I found it yesterday on a walk around Lower Lake Rudan in Handen. It's been a long ice fishing season this winter, but there was no ice fisher around on this occasion. By chance I ran into my flickr friend Jim nearby, and we decided to go for a photo shoot down by the lake. This shot taken from one of the ice covered piers proves that we had a blue sky (although a bit cloudy), at least for a few hours. Oh, and we found a big rock with a green string around it out on that pier. Jokingly we decided that it was from a suicide attempt that luckily never happened. In reality I have no idea what it was for. If you want to have a look at your favorite Haninge photographer, Jim took a photo of me as I was standing over the rock telling him about it.

One of the most interesting Sky Watch photos I have seen in awhile. That was a great idea and it turned out so well.

Very creative, Steffe. And I'm glad that you have blue skies and sunshine. The ice should all melt soon, right?

Jim Klenke said...

Neat shot, I like your friends shot of you on flikr also.

Oj da! You still have a lot of winter left in Haninge! We were wearing short sleeved shirts in EAGAN and it felt like June 1 instead of April 1. (And that's no April Fool's joke!)

Now there's a new twist on the Skywatch theme. My compliments on the shot Jim took too.

I hope that means the fisherman caught the fish he wanted already. A most unusual SWF post indeed. And you look great in your friend's photo. :)

A very creative SkyWatch!

Kim said...

Steffe, I love your creativity! We get to see you, your camera, and the deep blue sky. I am hoping your cold and ice will soon yield to warmth as the days lengthen in the north. Hope this is the start to a great weekend!

Thanks all. I'm happy to inform that most of the snow is gone. It will of course take a little longer for the ice to melt here. It was very sunny today, so I have a couple of sunny portraits coming in the next few days.

Original and creative. Being totally unexperienced with ice and holes in it, I would say even risky!
