My rainy day

The first part of the day I set up the new computers. Top image shows how my computer corner looks right now. Three computers, a printer and three cameras. All needed to get things to work properly. In my world. Too much? Yea, sometimes I think so. 

The afternoon was spent on motor vehicle inspection and shopping. And, of course, the camera followed to document things. Like the reflections and distortions because of the rain. My car was fine. No problems.

I went to Kvismaren yesterday. It was a nice but slightly cold and windy day. This place is located about 60 km inland from my hometown in Sweden. The cranes and swans was almost all gone up north. But I did see some  interesting waders and ducks. Also on their way up north.We had a very cold Easter weekend so I guess that is why they left early.

The old church ruin is taken good care of. It is used for different gatherings in summer. And the swifts are nesting there. But this day they have not arrived yet. The second place is only a km away from the church. This is old cultivated country located at a large lake about 22 km from where I live. Lots of gulls and other birds in the fields. I spotted two cranes on the slope.

The red fence

This is one very red fence. And high, taller then I am so I can´t peek over it. But from what I can see there are farming machinery behind it. This is  a fence you can´t ignore, you see it weather you want to or not.

Sheepish

2 weeks ago I was on my way to Kvismaren to check out the migration situation there. On my way I noticed these sheep that seemed almost totally hidden in the dry grass. But I was unable to stop at the time. 

On my way back in the afternoon I remembered the sheep. Not the same great light as in the morning, but I made a short stop anyway. When they grazed in the tall dry grass they were almost invincible. :)

They seem to be quite happy  :)  I was surprised to see the farm as I don´t often drive that road in winter. And in summer they are shielded by trees with leafs on them. But this time they were visible through the bare trees.

Well, this was a surprise. We thought spring was here yesterday, and now! What!
With this fence I actually love the gate. Unusual and pretty. Inside the garden they ahve placed an old sofa. In springtime they plant flowers in it. Very beautiful.

It´s obvious, spring is here but ice still on the shallow water behind the main building. And new arrivals are sliding on it.  But for tomorrow the weather forecast says: SNOW, a lot! Confusing, isn´t it?

This place is an old mill that now serves as a kind of museum. The water system runs across the country down to the Baltic sea.

It was not that cold still this little one was shaking and shivering in a way I have never seen before.

Here is a edited artwork of the last image if you like to see it.  Squirrel
