The endless fuzzy

So apparently, the thing at the end of the jetty is a place where you can go for a swim, kinda makes sense since the water seems like its knee deep for a long way out, not to mention the water is not that nice close to the shore – this particular scene reminds me of some scape conjured up by fantasy novel where you can punch on thru to the other side a rift or something, in any case it does fill me with some level of calm when looking at it 🙂

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 🙂 another animal checked off the list.

Time

stands still for no one, it does however pause….. for well constructed jetties.

Nothing like a cliche jetty, this one is a bit special, tucked away under the bushes and only a 12 inch plank to get to this part of the jetty – there was some balancing required ;). There were also some nice clouds rolling on in, I would have loved to hang around, but alas I had to be elsewhere and this was a sneaky on the way home session 🙂
