This weeks subject suits me very well, because today I started to work on my images that I captured a week ago, when I visit Skanör in the most Southern part of Sweden – we could call it Sweden’s Hampton. (Image by and thanks to; makalius.lt)
The villas (mansions) are there, but not along the beach as over in the real Hampton’s – but miles and miles of white sand by a deep blue ocean. Also from Skanör there is a fantastic view over our magnificent Øresundsbron, the bridge between Copenhagen and Malmö – plus The Lillgrund wind farm, both of my favorite photo objects – and they are also in between. Between two countries.
In the 1960’s the two next door towns of Skanör and Flasterbo became one; Skanör Flasterbo and today around 7.000 people lives there the whole year around and in the summer I don’t dare to say how many there is. It’s packed.
Through the German Hanseatic League establishment in the late 1100s laid the groundwork for a very large fish market in Skanör and that made Skanör to a very important trade community.
Skanör is famous for the white beaches and their small beach huts – that is hidden behind the massive sand dunes. So my choice for this weeks challenge will be the beach huts between the sand dunes.
