The spring is here, early for being in Sweden. The first picture is a coltsfoot that is one of the first signs that the spring is here. The second picture is a woodpecker that suddenly flew right in front on me and landed on that branch.
River in Sweden
From cold to moist. The month after December is warm, about 6 degrees Celsius
and there is no snow on the ground. It is just raining a bit and it is noisy from the river.
I like it, just hearing the river and looking at the water.
The Kölnerdomen in Cologne, Germany. A big church that took 632 years to complete! Between 1248 and 1880. Height of 157 meters (515ft). It was huge when I saw it for the first time. It is a beautiful church and was one of the few structures that still remained during bombing of Köln under the Second World War.
I’ve been adding some new pictures here and there and I have made some new subcategories: “Wind power” in the environmental category and “Trees close up” in the nature category.
Autumn is here to stay.
I had just been watching different kinds of birds on a lake and then walked back over the
long footbridge. The colors of the leaves made me take this picture and i did realise that autumn is here to stay.
Electronic waste in Sweden
Tons of electronic waste are collected and transported to electronic waste recycling facilities. That is a good thing that they do recycling. We have all heard that som e-waste is transported to Ghana were they burn computer parts to extract rare metals. People breathe the black smoke and get sick and the ground gets polluted.
Watch tower in the former soviet union
When walking on an island in Estonia with alot of old soviet bunkers I found this structure hidden in the woods. Around 30 meters tall watch tower. You could walk inside and upp to the last room but it was on your own risk because it was not 100 % safe. You climbed on rusty ladders.
Broccoli is growing fast in the hot weather and under the cloth that keeps away bugs from eating the plant. Cloth keeps also a higher temperature, keeps moisture and lets sunlight in.
