Spectacular Stockholm

We were fortunate enough to visit Stockholm for five days in August, which as is always the case with our trips, was too short a time to fully explore everything this beautiful city has to offer. The weather was a big factor in what we could do and photograph: We had everything from torrential downpours to stunningly sunny afternoons, and I must say when the sun is shining and the sky is blue, Stockholm is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever seen. It's built on a series of islands in the Baltic Sea and on Lake Mälaren and is brimming with beautiful architecture, interesting museums, old churches, royal palaces and trees, water, boats, bridges, ferries and bicycles everywhere. Definitely not a city to be missed!
