Imagine how you feel cold air moving against your skin, you hear odd noises from the darkness around you. Perhaps the moon is veiled by thin clouds, moving slowly. A bit spooky and chilly, perhaps you pace up a bit to hurry home. Or instead, imagine how the sun has set a little while ago, you feel the air move slowly, with that first undertone of warm temperatures that comes with a promise that spring is around the corner, and a summer coming this year as well. Perhaps you see this view as you are looking up towards the sky, sitting outside for a drink in the evening for the first time this year. Change the words that accompany the image, and you will also change the image.
A small sun next to the road.
A wood anemone with a water drop. It may look a bit springy and nice, but in fact it was rather cold, occasional hailing, cold fingers and muddy knees. But worth it, as always. #awesomesweden #bokskogen #closeup #fifty_shades_of_nature #forest #green #ig_closeups #ig_nature #ig_scandinavia #ig_sweden #igscandinavia #macro #macrophotography #nature #rsa_macro #skåne #sweden #swedishnature #top_macro #total_macro #visitskane #visitsweden #woodanemone #waterdrop

A scilla flower in the garden, so close that it becomes an abstraction. I think I will never grow tired of crawling around on the ground, looking at stuff through the macro lens, seeing them in a quite different way than I'm used to.
Easter morning at Ale Stenar, two years ago. Even though there is typically not a lot of people present at sunrise, over the thousands of years that the stones have been standing there, I guess quite many have started their day at that very spot.
...and so it begins again. Or, is it really a beginning? What is it that makes the beginning the beginning, and the end the end? What if that which we consider to be the beginning is in fact the end? Well, at least it's safe to say that the wood anemones are back. Or...? Hmm... perhaps they were there all the time, hiding. But I am quite certain that they are pretty. And that I am glad to see them.
Female harlequin ducks (Histrionicus histrionicus) in the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, Iceland. The male harlequin ducks look quite spectacular, and have always caught my eye when seeing images of them in bird books and elsewhere. When I visited Iceland I was happy to get to see the spieces. Next time, I hope to see more of them, and also some of those spectacular males.
