Photographer's Note

This is not the greatest photo I have posted here, but I think it represents Sφdermalm quite well:

An old wooden red cottage, a steep rock and an abandoned electric kickbike.

I took this photo yesterday during one of my regular walks on Sφdermalm island. I was walking quite fast to keep warm on a bright but windy day with a temperature of –5 °C. Occasionally I stopped briefly to take a photo.

This was at about 1:30 PM. The sun was getting low and the shadows were growing. On a cloudy day there would hardly have been enough light for any photos at all.

Sφdermalm is an island of steep hills providing good views of other parts of Stockholm, as I have shown you many times. Rock sides like this, where modern streets have been cut through the hills, are quite common.

I adjusted the shadows slightly, just to bring out more details of the rocks, otherwise I hardly did any post-processing, except sharpening and cropping a bit at the bottom. The afternoon light made the colours glow naturally.

Like most photos on TE it will probably look much better in a new tab.

The map coordinates 59.31214 18.08535 will show you this place.
