Photographer's Note

Solnedgng ver Hjlmaren
Coucher de soleil sur Hjlmaren
Sunset over Hjlmaren

The geography of central southern Sweden is marked by the presence of four large lakes: Vnern (5648 km2), Vttern (1893 km2), Mlaren (1140 km2), and finally Hjlmaren (484 km2) seen on this photo. Hjlmaren has an average depth of only 6.2 m, a maximum depth of 20 m, and the topography around the lake is quite flat. The photo was taken from the north side of Vinn, the largest island in Hjlmaren. Small Vinn has an area of about 4.5 km2 and is home of a hundred or so permanent residents. In summer, the island is easily accessible by free ferry from the south shore of Hjlmaren. Without being spectacular, its certainly a pretty island. A nice place to relax, have a swim, enjoy the rural atmosphere, the village life. The photo was taken just after 22h, the latest sunset I have seen this year.
