Ancient Stones and Woodland

Thursday 7 November 2019

I drove to the south coast of Sweden today and visited a historical site called Ales Stenar. This is a 3500 year old stone circle in the shape of a viking ship and was used, it is believed, as a calendar for various ceremonies throughout the year.

Ales Stenar

A really interesting place and I spent a couple of hours there. I thought it might be a good place to return to when the light was better. So I moved on to Stenshuvuds National Park on the south east coast of Sweden and I was pleasantly surprised at the wonderful forest they were looking after there. It was adjacent to the sea and had a beautiful sandy beach in addition to the forest. The autumn leaves were still clinging on in some places.

It was getting dark and I thought I may get some better images if I returned the following day.
