My friend has planned a nice itinerary to show me the best of Skåne. Since I started my travels in 2013 with the first Iceland trip, I’ve kept an open mind about every place I visit. The idea is that whatever I will see is new to me, so it doesn’t really matter exactly what I see. So I completely trust me friend here and I haven’t done any research myself, apart from one small exception.
The first place we visited was Tosteberga ängar. I’ve never seen a pasque flower, and they grow plentiful here. It’s by the sea though, and the wind provided a challenge for macro photography, but the sun was out so there was plenty of light and the shutter speeds were fast enough to freeze the motion.
The lowest point in Sweden
I mentioned that I hadn’t done any research for this trip, but I had my list of high points and extreme points to visit. The lowest point in Sweden happens to be very close, in Kristianstad. So we made a quick stop there and I was somewhat amused, as the lowest point of Sweden provided nicer views than the highest point of Skåne. Which isn’t saying much to be honest, so I just shot the sign as proof of visit!
In the afternoon we visited a place where a creek runs through the beech forest. The feeling of walking through those forests is a bit surreal at times – the forest floor is covered in withered leaves while the trees are decorated in bright green colours. The only other colour is the darker green moss covering the rocks!
