A Viking spring

Spring in Sweden is often a time

Of surprise snow, minus temperatures and hard frosts.

It might not be the kind of spring we want —

But it is beautiful anyway.

  8. A Viking spring seems to be a schizophrenic season. That will change soon – maybe in May – maybe in June! 🙂

    “But it is beautiful anyway.”

    You said it, Fiona! As you well know, I love winter (including the cold, the ice, and the snow), so I wouldn’t complain in the least about being in Sweden for Spring. 🙂

    Stunning images, my friend! Love the that second shot especially!

    Have a super week!

  10. Although a proof was not needed, you did append an image to your irrefutable statement. It set me thinking though, of the beauty of the dunes in the desert.

  76. Gorgeous golden light and frosty aspects captured!! It makes me feel so strange knowing that Springtime became actually like you previous said in your posts, more like Springter, or something similar 😉 😉 🙂 so unusual weather in these days, it rains and rains and it is so cold like in november, actually… I have my recent post to edited and it is all about the beauty of Spring in April, about cherry flowers, but what can I do?!… I’m ‘frozen’ by all these strange rains… and it is said that, starting with friday, snow will come in the city, ’cause in the rest of the country is winterland, actually…lol… 🙂 But I like to remain positive, anyway…
    Best regards and a lovely day to you!
