Gothenburg’s protest for George Floyd
Despite the Corona virus, more than four hundred cities around the world have marched in protest of George Floyd death and the lack of accountability for the detaining officers. Gothenburg's march brought thousands out in peaceful protest. Starting at Heden and travelling in a large circle around the city past Vasa, past Domkyrkan and past the stadium.
Recently, the Elk (or Moose if you are American as the North American Elk is a different species) in Slotskogen park have given birth to two calves (or Mooselings). These babies have caused much excitement and many visitors.
Hiking through Aspen
At the end of the season, a friend and I headed out to the forests east of Gothenburg for a short weekend hike. It was the first evening that the temperature dipped to -4 degrees and so we had a very cold evening.
Its been quite some time since I did any astrophotography, but my new 100-400 lens has been waiting for the nights to get dark enough to start trying to catch the moon again. The ongoing issue of the weight of the lens, extender and body on my travel tripod makes maintaining sharp focus a challenge, and next time I'll be plugging my laptop instead of using the rear viewer for focusing and getting the shot centred. I may also borrow the heavy duty tripod from the office for a weekend.
Royal Republic of Ladonia
Ladonia is a micronation, proclaimed in 1996 as the result of a years-long court battle between artist Lars Vilks and local authorities over two sculptures. The claimed territory is part of the natural reserve of Kullaberg in southern Sweden.
Bottenstugan i Svartedalen
Some friends and I went hiking in Bottenstugan i Svartedalen, an area of natural beauty north of Gothenburg. The trails connect to Bohusleden, meaning you can trek back the 50 or so kilometers to Gothenburg, something a few of us plan to do.
Stockholm National Museum
The Stockholm National Museum is situated at the point where one island ends and the bridge to the next would take you to the Modern Art Museum. The building itself is old and imposing.
The Fotografiska Museum is on the banks of one of the many rivers that divides Stockholm. A long building, likely a warehouse in the past, of dark brick with a bronze fruit outside.
Waterways of Stockholm
Stockholm is a city on the water, looking into the Baltic, passed its many islands, the city itself forms a crosshatch pattern of islands connected by bridges over the inlets and rivers. In the winter many of these rivers freeze, and its common to see the locals skating across them.
A sculpture park created by architect and sculptor Carl Milles in the grounds of his home in Stockholm, the statues are primarily set on tall columns to frame them against the sky and the sun.
Six of our headed out on Saturday morning for Brännö island, off the coast of Gothenburg. Part of the Archipelago that is easily accessible by the many ferries.
Cycling to Särö
On Swedish National Day, I decided to dust off my bike, which had sat unused through the winter and spring to cycle down to Lerkil
A few of us got up early Saturday morning and hiked the route from Angereds Kyrka to Kåsjön.
Nazi rally counter protest
In Gothenburg this weekend, a group of Neo-Nazi's decided to hold a march through the city.

Animals in Slottskogen
Slottskogen is a large park in Gothenburg, and it is often the venue for a number of social events.
Gothenburg Botanical Gardens
