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.
In August this year we visited Den Blå Planet outside of Copenhagen, Denmark. It was a great place to spend a couple of hours at with lots of beautiful aquariums and fishes. I’d also like to “brag” a bit because the rain forest was actually created by my common-law spouse. The photo below shows however nothing of the above. It was taken outside the aquarium and shows the island Saltholm with Sweden and Malmoe in the back ground. The Turning Torso is visible in the lower right corner.
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.

The long wait for part two of the epic spiral duology is now over. The second picture is perhaps a more familiar sight to most people? Is is of course the Turning Torso and, without even checking with Wikipedia, I also know that this is another spiral building that king Charles XII of Sweden didn’t climb with his horse back in 1710;)
It’s been a loong time since Stefan and I was out for a trip with our cameras but last night was one of those rare times. We usually end up by the sea in one way or the other and this time was no different with Malmoe as our goal. Malmoe may not have the same impressive skyline as many bigger cities throughout the world but it looks pretty good when you look at from this angle if you ask me.
(is there anyone out there who still haven’t understood about pressing the pictures in order to see them in their right size?:)
