The rumour of this blogs death is greatly exaggerated, it’s only been sleeping for some weeks! 🙂
Summertime comes with endless opportunities for good and interesting photography. Yesterday i visited the yearly celebration Ångans Dag, The Day of Steam in English, in Mariefred. Mariefred is a small village with about 5000 inhabitants situated approximately 50 km west of Stockholm, Sweden. Mariefred is well known for two things, the magnificent Gripsholms Castle and the narrow gauge railway museum Östra Södermanlands Järnväg. During summertime you can also travel with steamboat from Stockholm to Mariefred which makes a wonderful full day excursion from the capital of Scandinavia. Yesterday it was not only one but several steamboats visiting Mariefred. When S/S Ejdern and S/S Mariefred arrived in Marifred in the afternoon they where celebrated with salute from Eskilstuna Skarpskyttekår (Sharp shooting corps). Here are two HDR-pictures I made yesterday of the Sharpshooters and the Steamboats. There will be Steam Engines, vintage cars and a lot more posted here the coming week.
