Tidig svan ~~ Early swan

Svanarna är ovanligt tidiga i år, jag började att höra om dom förra veckan.

The swans are early this year, I started hearing about them last week.

Rondell dinosaurier ~~ Roundabout dinosaurs

Alla svenskar känner väl till fenomenet med rondell hundar och rondell djur vid det här laget så det behövs väl inte förklaras. >>En wiki om fenomentet.<< >>Rondell konst<< >>Mer rondell konst<<

All Swedes probably know about the roundabout dog and roundabout animal phenomena by now, but I'll explain a bit more about it in English.


The phenomena started back in early 2006 when the art called "Cirkulation II" by Stina Optiz was vandalized. Her sculpture of a dog made in concrete was placed in a roundabout in Linköping and the vandals beheaded it. The sculpture was removed to be fixed and a wooden dog was put up by Akademi Vreta Kloster later that year.
The roundabout dogs and other animals can now be found all over Sweden and they have also been spotted in other countries. The roundabout dog Lars has his own blog where he tells about his journeys through England. (In Swedish.) The roundabout dogs and animals are made by private persons with various degrees of imagination and artist skills and are put in the roundabouts secretly. The local news papers often report about new art that has been put up and there are speculations about who made them.

Vy i 120 ... ~~ View in 120 ...

Vi satt i bilen och jag hade ett sånt där "Oh titta vackert" ögonblick. Jag slängde upp kameran och det här är vad jag fick. Inte illa med tanke på att vi åkte i 120 km/t.

We were in the car and I had one of those "Oh look pretty" moments. I threw the camera up and got this. Not bad since we were driving in 120 km/t (74 mph).

Dimmig morgon ~~ Misty morning




Vacker vinter dag ~~ Beautiful winters day

Istapp ~~ Icicle

Månförmörkelsen ~~ The Lunar Eclipse




















Röd Måne.
Jag erkänner att jag fuskar lite här, fotot är taget utav min man. Det är blurrigt men jag är fortfarande stolt över det eftersom det är det första i sitt slag som vi har tagit.

Red Moon.
I admit that I'm cheating a little here, my husband took the photot. It's blurred but I'm still proud over it since it's the first of it's kind that we have taken.
