Love this shot! I can feel the volume of the water...
Hi Lilibeth, Strömmen means: the Stream, and Strömmen is always in turmoil.
Oh! I thought this is part of the sea...so this is just a stream or a river. Thanks learning new (Swedish? or German?) words :-)
Not really a river, but here Lake Mälaren (in fact a system of interconnected inland lakes) is discharging into the port of Stockholm. From this point boats can reach the open sea, although the sea is still 40 miles from here. The area between Stockholm and the sea is consisting of over 20,000 islands and the inner city of Stockholm itself is built on several islands (Swedish lesson 2: "holm" stands for "island").
We are from Holland but spent our vacation here in 2009, visiting relatives.
Best regards, Claus
Oh wow how interesting! Now I know why it's called Stockholm...I do love lakes and mountains :-) Greetings to Holland from Manila!
