Hiking to the oldest tree by Markus Hoffmann (62) 2012-08-00 - 2012-08-00
This was not an every day hiking-tour to see the oldest tree of the world. Sweden scientists named this spruce "Old Thikko". His genome has an age of round about 9550 years. And we were also happy to have a forest warden all time as tour gide! Thanks to Stefan for all explanations and special for "Der Baum des Tages". (7 photos)
Getaway in Stockholm 2007 by Gilbert Sopakuwa (1371) 2007-08-17 - 2007-08-20
August 2007. My friend and TE member Rian invited me (or did I invite myself?!) to join her for a weekend in Stockholm.
I've never got any 'higher' then the top of the Netherlands (i.e. Den Helder) on the world map, 'till now. I will definitely go north more often because Stockholm and its surroundings are beautiful. Clean city with lots of water and trees. (4 photos)
How is Sweden? by Nicolas Masse (1979) 2007-02-21 - 2007-02-25
Last week-end was my 15th time in Sweden, yet it was the first time I went out with a camera to take photos... Swedes are lengendary discrete and reserved so I wasn't sure what to expect when shooting in the street. I wasn't sure that my camera wouldn't work in such cold climates either.
I was all wrong! People were lovely and smiley even in front of the lens, and the camera worked fine.
I ended up having a short serie where each photo seems to match a stereotype of what people think Sweden is.
Hope You'll like it! (7 photos)

Kalmar-Öland by Rachel Davies (155) 2005-03-24 - 2005-03-29
My family and I went 400 km south of Stockholm at Easter to meet spring but as you will see in the following pictures snow was still around...
But the colours were terrific!
"Colours" was probably not the right term to use, "light" and "impressions" would probably be more accurate and stick more to the pics I have posted (6 photos)

Scandinavia VII/VIII 2003 by Sylwester Arabas (644) 2003-07-20 - 2003-08-07
Thunder.... we get out of the tent. Birds are singing in the trees around us, the sky is blue, grass emerald green, yet we can still hear thunders. No clouds... where's the storm coming from? I look up- the glacier over our tents is cracking. Huge pieces of ice are falling down with rumble. Another beautiful day starts; no storm will come today... ... (full story) (14 photos)
