The Nordic light

I am visiting family in Sweden, just by one of the largest lakes, Vänern. It is grey and rainy, but the light is just magnificent!

There are times I wish I could  paint:)  I try to teach myself to see beauty in the cloudy, rainy days, too. Instead of being  overwhelmed by the lack of bright colour, to try and see the colours in the grey. Sometimes it works:)

This is our walk down to the lake.  Through a heavy forest, dark and grey, down to the beautiful light. Worth the walk.

Oh, you are so lucky to have such a wonderful aunt and uncle. The lake is spectacular! Thank you for sharing. Will you take photos of the dogs?
