summer night city: silence is golden

The smallish town of Sigtuna is the namesake of a municipality including Märsta as well as Arlanda Airport. However insignificant today, Sigtuna used to be one of Sweden's most important cities a thousand years ago. Most of these boats in the Sigtuna Harbour on a quiet evening appear to be a lot younger.

You have catch a very nice light in this evening.

Tammy said...

Very nice! I like your sky photo too! Thanks for dropping by!

Fredrik said...

Not a chance feeling blue in Sigtuna, I guess. Nice pic!

JM said...

The light is beautiful!
Very nice shot!

Åh - ljuvliga färger! Å inget Photoshoppande. I'm impressed!

The boats look tired...or "pooped" might be the better choice word. This is a magical photo, Per.

Pia K said...

Lovely picture, great colours!

Tinsie said...

That's a beautiful photo! Makes me wish I was there :-)

Impressive sky! You captured perfectly that moment when dusk turbs to night.

And I like the happy feet above!

I wasn't alone out there. A couple of men literally followed my every move... I suppose they're members of the local boat club and this was their night shift, guarding the precious fleet.

Château-Gontierdailyphoto: The Nordic summer nights are like that. Well, except a few rainy ones recently...

Tammy: There's no business like sky business! ;)

Right you are Fredrik. A relaxed, almost sleepy feeling in fact.

JM: thanks.

himmelochord: Nej, den här är o-shoppad. Tack snälla, visst är färgerna oemotståndliga. Jag brukar vara dålig på att bedöma vilka motiv som kommer att funka men ibland känner jag att - yes - om den här bara blev skarp nu, så... Detta var ett sådant tillfälle.

Tired boats in a very old small town, Coltrane_lives... Thanks!

Pia K: I've been thinking of trying mono photography but I doubt this one would have been very interesting without colours?

Tinsie: Sigtuna is a lovely little place, do visit if you get the chance... :)

• Eliane • : Good point about the sky. I was hoping for those clouds to go away and now I'm glad they didn't. This kind of sky has a lot more character.

Thanks all for commenting. Sigtuna is on the outskirts of the Stockholm County (check out the map) and just barely within our "district".
