Can’t resist including a Swenglish pun: “Livsfarlig ledning”  = “lethal [power] line”, as in high voltage. But “ledning” can also mean “lead[ing]”…

The tall birch trees form lines leading upwards.

The lake beach in spring, before it’s been cleaned up for the summer season. Lines in the sand shaped by the water.

  3. The steam train is wonderful. I don't recall seeing it before but surely I must have? Please tell me it's not my memory. The bridge is the start though. Something about it really speaks to me.

    1. I'll not say anything about your memory, GB, but the two steam train photos have indeed been posted on this blog before: Steam Train Nostalgia (1 Sept 2013)

    2. Thanks Monica. I thought that you must have. As soon as I went to the post I remembered it. Information overload is my only excuse (other than that I have an appalling memory).

    3. It's just not possible to remember everything, Graham. I knew I had done a post on the railway anniversary because it was a special occasion. But I had to check which blog I had put it on, which photos I used, and what I wrote etc.

    1. Not the whole lake, Meike, but the (major) public beaches along its shores. In the late spring, the debris washed up during the winter season is cleared away and pontoon jetties are put out into the water over summer. In the winter sometimes the whole lake freezes over, that depends on how cold it gets.

  9. I like the variety of your selections, Monica. My favourites are the two of the lovely little wooden bridge, it looks so well used, comfortable somehow.

  10. Beautiful. Love trains, and I know that you posted different train images before which I also liked a lot. Those woods are equally fantastic with the old bridge.
