Jetty fantastico

Our last night staying in southern Sweden we decided to head out and try and capture another swedish sunset. I can't be passing up a good jetty now and these did not disappoint, the beach, or what the Swedes call a beach was .. lets say interesting. Bjärred is only a 20 minute drive from where we were and with the ingenious idea of the swedes to actual make smart traffic lights (ie ones that sense your coming and turn green) we were there in no time. Plenty of jetties and cool boats which make cool photographic subjects and easy ones too.

After leaving the beach on the way back to the car we did spot a Hedgehog, pretty neat little creatures, with very little fear, we chased him into the bush to grab a few photos πŸ™‚ another animal checked off the list.

  1. This is spectacular! The cool pastel hues and the sense of the linear beams of the pier stretching out forever into the limitless sky gives this a wonderful sense of dreamy abstraction. I can visualise this being printed in a large panorama on a wall in your gallery show, which your work surely deserves. The North Sea must be quite a different beast than the Tasman, so I am not surprised that the beaches were a far cry from Bondi!

    Thankyou, i really like capturing and portraying the ocean where the horizon is fuzzy and obscure, causing a little vertigo, like in a dream πŸ™‚ Sweden was perfect for this since alot of days the ocean is covered with hazy mist, on a clear day you can see the bridge that spans Sweden and Denmark from here.. but not today!
    They are also very different seas and beaches, nothing I saw compares to our beaches, even the sydney ones!
