Today I’d like to show you a couple of photos that I’ve taken from our living room. I don’t think we have the most exciting view but it’s not to shabby either.
Outside of Lund a small village callled Hardeberga can be found. It is situated on top of a hill with a great view over the open surrounding landscape. If you happen to look west when standing there you’ll see something like I did the other day. The fields stretch out for many kilometers with the occasional farmhouse or small village mixed up with a few trees. The fields, however, dominate and you could even say that they are what defines Scania in all directions from that point of view. Anyway, the fields have to stop some time and they do when reaching the coast and the city of Malmö. It is hard to believe when watching the picture below but the highrise with the twisted shape, The Turning Torso, is close to 23 kilometers away as the birds fly and the Öresund Bridge, with its high bridge, an additional 11 kilometers away.

It’s been a long time since I last climbed on top of the roof but yesterday evening I stood there once again. This time it was to search for the comet Pan-Starrs and to hopefully get a picture of it. Well, I searched and searched but couldn’t find it. Perhaps I will have better luck tonight? I didn’t want all my effort to have been in vain so I snapped a few pictures towards Malmoe and its skyline which you can look at below.
I guess that most people travelling between Copenhagen and Malmoe has seen this wreck at some point and I must confess that I’ve been wondering a lot about how this boat ended up where it did. I’ve been wondering even more why it stays there without anyone doing anything about it. Could it be that it’s supposed to be a future tourist attraction? Stockholm has Vasa, which is a very fine old ship, so perhaps Malmoe should have aimed a little higher than this?;)
You rarely see any working lighthouses nowadays. I guess they aren’t in much demand when all boats have fancy navigation equpiment? This “lighthouse” can be found close to the Øresund Bridge and probably has a more aesthetic role than a practical one.
