We are in Finspång in Östergötland in Sweden. The industries of Finspång originated in the sixteenth century with royal factories for cannons and cannon balls. Finspång castle was built by Louis de Geer, part of a walloon family imported to Sweden for their know-how in iron mining and iron production.. The picture is taken in the autumn of 2014 and published before on From My Horizon.
We are back in Borås, this time on the street were I lived while in Borås walking home in the afternoon when I suddenly saw both ends of a rainbow. For once I used the Iphone as I wasn´t able to catch both ends of the rainbow with my ordinary camera. I used to walk this street every day to work. Sadly no pots of gold waiting where the rainbow ended.
I am very fascinated by flying and love looking down on the landscape. Here I have caught the spare Japanese high mountains close to the clouds when flying out from Japan in 2013.
Pondering the textures of the mountains and the clouds I share this post with The Daily Post´s weekly Photography Challenge: Layered.
The postcard this week comes from a misty september morning in Newmarket in 2013. I am on Warren Hill seeing the horses run between the railings.
A magic night listening for bats by the pond by Hovdala castle. One could see the tiny Daubenton’s bats flying in circles over the water hunting insects. They also hunt insects in the water, not only flying insects. This was the last bat guide tour for the season at Hovdala castle. The bats were of course too fast to catch on the picture but as my son remarked they did not fly as fast as one could expect. We heard several more species and saw them out of the corner of our eyes. Fifteen of the nineteen species of bats that exists in Sweden can be found in the woods around Hovdala.
