Uppsala - stormy sky

Very, very atmospheric. The sky, the winter-braced bare trees, the light angling in low, the turbulent water… not hard to imagine the severe paganism that was reportedly practiced here in a major way centuries ago.

A very interesting perspective. What is the structure to the left that seems to be surrounded by water? Very good picture.

Alan White: The structure to the left is a mill. There has been a mill on that small islet since the 13th century or somewhere around that time. The current building is from the 18th century and holds a museum, Upplandmuseet.

Here is an old photo (from the 1960s) from the opposite direction:

Great, great picture…a fairly long exposure, I assume?

Love the texture of the water and the stones.

Olle J–thanks so much! And that’s a great b&w of the mill from the other direction.
