I’ve taken so many pictures in a nature area outside of Lund called Skrylle during my various bike trips there that it’s been long since I lost count of them. A couple of evenings ago I snapped this one as I was heading home. Normally I like summer more than fall but one thing fall has going for it, is the intense colors in the beautiful sunsets and sunrises.
Frequent visitors to this blog are probably quite familiar with a nature area outside of Lund called Skrylle. It is a very beautiful place and dear to me in many ways since I practically grew up there. I actually don’t live that far away from Skrylle and would have liked to go there more often but there never seems to be enough time for stuff like that anymore.

Skrylle is an area some kilometers outside of Lund. Just beside Skrylle is a huge quarry that is still being used today. Beside that is in turn an older quarry that was turned into a recreation area some years ago with a small lake, or pond in the middle of it. This area is very well-known to me since I practically grew up there and, as often as I get the chance, I try to go there for a walk or to ride my mountain bike. Normally it is very beautiful out there but now, in the middle of a wonderful fall, with the trees in their fall uniform it is hard to describe it with words. I’d rather just show you a picture of it.

This picture was taken a while ago in an old quarry around 10 kilometers south-east of Lund. It has been abandoned for many years and now serves as a recreation spot for people. There is amongst other things a horrible and murky lake you can swim in. I wouldn’t do it though and I can’t say that I recommend it. The water being dreadfully cold all year round not being my only concern.
What brings me to that area? Well, I’m there for the pain. I usually go there with my mountain bike so that I can make nasty and horrible falls and hurt various parts of my body;)
All jokes aside, the place feels like a safe haven to me. I grew up not long from there and coming there with my bike or just walking around is almost like coming home.
