Guardian Stones at Svenneby Kyrka Sweden by 


Svenneby 12th century church in Sweden has very oldfashioned pairs of guarding stones to be passed at the entrances of the churchyard towards the south and towards the west.

I am a nature lover and an amateur photographer.
Nature is my main inspiration.Snow and ice, birds and water keep attracting my eye. So do trees amd flowers.
I am also interested in myth and history, especially the history of women, the `herstory´. I love to travel and to visit archeological sites and beautiful landscapes.
I use a compact camera, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28

    wonderful capture and history Helua! Well done my friend!

  • They must be of very old origin, I read that spherical stones have been found in Scotland as well, maybe the Vikings saw them there…
    Thanks for being so supportive, my friend!xx:)
