A Winter Sky

Oak Framed Entrance

These two trees makes for an impressive entrance to a historic place at Mulsta in Tungelsta. Especially now with all the frost. The yellow building dates back to 1893, and was known as a Länsmansboställe, as was the building that stood here before it. For a few centuries many Vassals lived here, among them the police officer in charge of that murder story I told you about last summer. Today it is a private residence. Mulsta as a farm dates back to the Iron Age, that was when Tungelsta was known as Thungirsta.

Skywatch Friday.

Beautiful..I really like how it looks.

Another wonderful landscape. And the historical information makes it even more interesting. Hard for me to grasp history that goes back that far.

It is a fantastic look. The tree looks like each twig is covered with frost. It all goes together and makes a nice picture.

In the northern countries I noticed many yellow buildings! My best norwegian friend's house is yellow too and the contrast with the snow is lovely.

Very beautiful to look at, but I still enjoy my warm, southern weather!

Great scene, sometimes the most beautiful places are location for terrible stories.
