Swimming into the sunset

What better way to celebrate the long light evenings of a Swedish summer

Than enjoying the sunset

And then diving into the broken yolk

Of the golden sun – at ten o’clock in the evening?

    I could look at that first shot for a long time, superbe!

  14. I think I could never tire of sunset over water. Beautiful and obviously warm enough for swimming – or was that just Oscar?

    June 25, 2011 at 17:54

    • The water is probably around 20C – so a little chilly – but the kids don’t mind it. However, this evening, it was just Oscar.

    Beautiful photos. Sometimes I miss the long summer evenings we had when I lived in Holland, I’m too far south for those now. But I don’t miss the clouds!

  26. “broken yolk”, I love that verbal image almost as much as the photo image of the child (your daughter?) and dog on the dock.

    June 26, 2011 at 01:42

  41. Beautiful sunset. You have longer days than we do – our sun sets near 9, and by 10 it’s deep twilight. I love the long days of summer, and I’m a little sad that they are already growing shorter by a few minutes each day.

    June 26, 2011 at 19:20

  42. Another gorgeous post!!! And your insights are always so perfect…

    June 26, 2011 at 19:54

  62. You have such beautiful sunsets. But I’m guessing you would have to be pretty dedicated to photograph the sunRISE at this time of year in Sweden!

    June 29, 2011 at 17:24
