The Rudan School

The Rudan School


I was out climbing a hill at the nature reserve Lake Rudan in Handen a while back. From the top of said hill you have a decent view of the surrounding areas. This photo shows the Rudan primary school and an office building at the Handen Terminal. The school has 430 students and the building used to house the district court before being turned into a school. I shot the photo from the remains of a hill fort dating back to the Iron Age. Sadly it's not much to see these days, just a few stones and rocks here and there. In total there are around 300 such fortifications in this part of Sweden.

I thought it looked like a hospital when it first loaded before reading your words, can't believe it's a school. Nice shot of it with the reflection.

Rudanskolan reflected nicely for your camera, Steffe!

I agree CaT, for a school the exterior is very ugly. But I'm glad you all like the reflection!
