View From A Bridge

View From A Bridge

This is the view from one of the wooden bridges at the Nature Park in Handen. Whenever I'm at the park, I always take a photo from this exact point. This photo was taken yesterday, and it was my 42th shot. The park called Slätmossen, opened in 2001 and is very popular with people, and the local wildlife, especially birds. Several ponds have been dug to collect the 300 million litre of surface water that pass by here every year. The purpose being to clean the water in the old wetland. The water will then find it's way to the Baltic Sea via the Husby river. During the cold winters of the 1940ths, peat was extracted from here to be used as fuel, which have made for an interesting landscape with a very rich fauna.

Skywatch Friday.

I'm sure the trees recognise you and greet you! Interesting environmentally speaking too.

I have a few of those favorites spots too, where I must take a picture even though I have dozens of the exact same spot! :)

TGIF!

Glad you were able to see some of my photos Lisa.

This park is also very popular with photographers. I have meat quite a few over the years. Two Springs ago I was hoping to chat with one, but he suddenly noticed a Common Teal and had to run after it!
