Observation Point on New Year´s Eve by 

On the hill of Skansen Kronan, Gothenburg, Sweden

People have climbed to the top of a hill to see the fireworks below. It must be a very old custom to climb to a high point in the landscape to accomplish fire rites and observe the rising of the sun at this, the darkest time of the year.

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
