Let’s face it, the landscape isn’t very photogenic at the moment so it doesn’t really matter where I go, I can’t have very high expectations on doing any photography. Today was another calm day though so I decided to go a lake and after looking at the map for a while, I decided that Skenören looked interesting. The bird’s eye map view can of course turn out to be a disappointment when you’re standing on the shore of the lake, but I’ve never been to Skenören (the lake – there’s a mountain by the same name and I’ve been to that) so it was time to check it out.
At first I was worried that it would be the same kind of weather as yesterday, with the misty clouds that wouldn’t lift, but today the mist was only in the valley and once I hit the trail from Walles, it was all blue skies and sunshine. Without the wind, it was very warm – even if the ice on the trail told a different story.
And would you believe, even the lake was frozen! The sun was doing its job though and more and more open water was coming out as I was walking along the shore. The lake wasn’t half bad, but the landscape around it is rather boring. The only high peak at close proximity is Skenören but it’s on the south side which meant that it was back lit. Skarsfjället was visible in the north but I couldn’t find any good spot to shoot it. However… I liked this place anyway. On a day like this, how can you not like whatever place you’re at?
