Kungsträdgården | The King’s Garden

Om det är någon tid på året man skall besöka Kungsan är det just nu. Sakura-träden blommar och folk har kommit fram ur sina hålor och njuter av en glass, en sushi eller varför inte en pizza direkt från kartongen sittandes njutandes av de härliga blommande träden.

Cherry Blossom

If there is any time of the year to visit the Kungsträdgården it is now. The Sakura cherry trees are in full bloom and it will soon be over. People have come out from their winter hidings and are having ice creams, sushis to go or why not a pizza straight from the carton sitting around enjoying the scenery and the lovely blooming trees.


Fatburen is a small area in the south end of Stockholm. These days you find it between Medborgarplatsen and the Stockholm Södra train station roughly and the blocks in between. There are many very modern buildings here and fortunately the Fatburen park has been saved, fatbursparken in Swedish.

I passed by here last Monday and had the camera with me which was quite lucky because I got a picture that I have had in my head for some time now that we have finally gotten a bit of proper winter even here in Stockholm.

Fatbursparken in all it's winter glory. Click on the picture and then on the picture page you can find the map where this picture was taken. Like most of my pictures it is geotagged when published on the Internet.

The picture is a full colour picture but the whole world seemed very black and white at this moment. The park was full of people as well and tourists taking pictures of each other with their cameras. So I had to wait for the right moment before I could squeeze off a few pictures and this is the result.

At the left in the very far reach of the picture is part of the railway that goes under the city into the Central station. This part will be rebuilt and probably covered to the dismay of some of the train spotters who use this place to spot trains passing by. I just hope that they will preserve this park even if it is a park that has a bit of a drug problem going in the late summer evenings…

Morning Fog

Autumn is Coming

Believe it or not, but this was shot in the main street in Kallhäll where I live on my way to work one morning. There was still a bit of fog around that had not been cleared by the sun yet, the nights are colder now but the days are still very nice and the best part of autumn is here now.

If you click on the photo you can see exactly where I was standing when taking it.
