Murky Reflection

Another typical November day. Gray skies and a lot of rain for most of the day. Day 12 in my project 100 Days Of Darkness. These are the row houses at Kolonilottsvägen at Lillgården in Tungelsta.

Grosshandlarvilla

Grosshandlarvilla
Old Swedish word of the day. Täcka Udden at Djurgården in Stockholm was known as a Grosshandlarvilla, (Summer House), back in the day.

November Mood

November
This is how I feel about November. Cold. Gray. Dark. I bike here most every day. The walkway between Västerhaninge and Nedersta follows the railway line Nynäsbanan and this is often a good spot if you enjoy biking against the wind, which I don't.

Alla helgons dag

Day 2
It was a busy day at the cemeteries yesterday as we celebrated Alla helgons dag. This was the scene at the cemetery in Västerhaninge.

R.I.P.

R.I.P.
All Saints' Day. As I made my way across, (pun intended), the cemetery in Västerhaninge I stumbled upon this gravestone cross.

All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey

Autumn Leaf
That song is a really good description of the start of November. Although I did find this Autumn leaf on the stone wall at the cemetery yesterday, when we did have a bit of sunshine. Theme Day. Brown.

That Old Tree

That Old Tree
The old tree in late October. All the leaves are gone, and with just the berries left this was an unusual color of the Swedish Whitebeam. Down the path near Klems Kulle a man is walking his dog.

Boardwalk

Boardwalk
Boardwalk at the Upper Lake (Övre Rudasjön), at the Rudan nature reserve in Handen. There's a bench along the boardwalk where you often can spot me enjoying something to eat or just some sunshine.

Autumn Bench

Autumn Bench
Eskilsparken, the green lung in Handen in Autumn colors. This is the poodle photography bench by the way.

Late Summer vs. Autumn

Late Summer vs. Autumn
I haven't done one of these for a while. Different Seasons. The left side shows the magnificent tree in late September when we still had Summer weather. The right side is from this week.

Walkin' Down the Road

Walkin' Down the Road
Being a local I know a few things about this scene other than that it shows two people walking down a road. The road is Nynäsvägen. Parts of it date back to the Viking era. A new road opened for traffic a few years ago so no one except the locals uses this road these days. It is close to Berga where you will find the agricultural college, and the two teenage boys are students there, so possibly they are two future farmers. The bus service from Berga to Västerhaninge isn't all that great so the kids will often walk instead of waiting for the bus.

Autumn View

Autumn In The Park

Autumn In The Park
Autumn colors at the park in Tungelsta. The same park where there's a rock festival in August of every year.

Torklada

Torklada
The old drying barn, (known as a torklada), at Fridhem in Krigslida. For many years there was a laundry here. This barn was built by timber from the USA. Back in the 1920s cars imported from North America were transported in wooden containers. Anyone who wanted could get the timber from the containers and the buildings seen here were built with that wood.

Autumnal Walkway

Autumnal walkway
This has been the earliest Autumn for forty years. This is a walkway/bike path at Krigslida, it won't be long now before all the leaves are gone.

Flying in Formation

Flying in formation
Except for that one bird. Heading south for the Winter. These were just a few of them. Must have been at least a thousand birds in all. Spotted at Lillgåren earlier in the week.

Autumn Macro

Another Autumn promenade in a forest. This time at home. In the forest just behind the house. I took the macro lens with me.

When plan fails

Krigslida When plans fail That Old Tree The old farm building
The plan on this day was to take the bike to the National Park and from there take a longish Thursday Walk around one of the lakes at Tyresta. A flat tire just a few kilometers from home put a stop to that idea. Instead, I opted for my usual walk at Välsta, although it's not much fun walking with a bike, but there you go. Anywho, here are four photos from my bike walk last Thursday.

Östnora

Östnora Östnora Åmunsfjärden Jetty Horsfjärden Åmunsfjärden
A few images from Östnora. This was the beach I visited a lot as a kid and as a teenager. As kids, we took the bus here during the Summer break. Later in life, we had a few BBQ-evenings here as teenagers. There's a big marina here. And a popular camping site. The beach itself isn't all that much to see, but it is still popular with young families. The bay is Horsfjärden, made famous back during the cold war when the military chased "Russian Submarines" here. Another smaller bay is Åmunsfjärden.
