The archipelago

The Archipelago Lookout Point
My third visit to the Lookout Point at Häringe in the last three months. It was another warm Autumn day last week, around 13C. I rode my bike to the nature reserve. Arriving it was all very quiet. I met two guys from the Skärgårdsstiftelsen doing forest maintenance at Häringenäs. And after parking my bike at the path leading up to the hill I met a guy on a mountainbike who told me that it was a bit windy up at the top. Which it was. But the view was as always great. As I took the top photo I got a flashback. Here is the story: Back when I was a kid, we are talking mid-1970s, we had this painter nick-named Gidde who lived a really rough life, with alcohol, homelessness, and what have you. He used to visit our place and my grandfather always fed him, gave him a bed for the night, while my grandmother cleaned his clothes. As a thank you, he sometimes gave them one of his paintings. The painting often looked like this view, and was always called something like Sunset over Nynäshamn. So I'm pretty sure he used to visit here and paint this view and I can't really blame him for that as it is a nice view. On the second photo you can see the two Super-post Panamax cranes at the Norvik harbor in Nynäshamn. To the right the new apartment building Fyren currently under construction.

It was in the early afternoon before the sunset, but still great colors.

I will try to go back during the winter if we get a lot of snow, which will change the look of the landscape a bit.
