Things Ill remember: the water everywhere

Things I'll remember: the water everywhere

Stockholm is called the "Venice of the North," and with good reason. The city stretches over 14 islands, and high-rise suburbs go almost all the way out to the country palaces. I loved the water, bridges and ferries and the beauty of it all on a sunny day.

These rapids, part of the Baltic Sea, were next to the Parliament building (not shown), and this man was fishing. Right in the middle of the city!

It really is pretty. I love the composition with the aqueducts, architecture, color and the man fishing. Postcard perfect. V.

Great view of the bridge, the buildings above and the water below. The delicate colors of the buildings are beautiful. V
