Another view from the heritage fishing huts on Tjörn looking across Stigfjorden
"Stigfjorden is a body of water between Orust and Tjörn in Bohuslän . It is bounded by Orust the north, Tjörn the south, Mjörn the east and Lyr in the west. Through the narrow Stromsund stands Stigfjorden in connection with the Skagerrak. Stigfjorden is a shallow fjord, the depth does not exceed 23 meters. The annual Tjörn Around - regatta enters the mouth at Skåpesund Bridge in Stig Fjord easternmost part." Wikipedia
Stigfjorden is a fjord between two large islands situated off the west Swedish coast, with extensive shallow waters and a Zostera-covered clay sea-floor. The islands have well-managed coastal meadows with a saltmarsh character and some forest, mostly deciduous and dominated by Quercus. It is an important area for passage waterbirds and waders. Human activities include boating, swimming, fishing, and grazing for conservation purposes.

This is a pleasant landscape composition with a pleasant painterly feel to it, possibly because you have chosen to focus on the foreground combined with the elongated exposure time. The image has a calm and peaceful atmosphere engendered by the soft early morning light and understated tones. Thanks for sharing.

You were blessed with the most magical light, you must have come back from this shoot on such a high after seeing such a great sunset.i really like the diagonal component to this, the way you have lined up the roof of the hut with the rocky ledge almost bisecting the image on the diagonal. The soft reflections of the colorful sky on the water are wonderful
Thanks for sharing

Well composed shot with foreground interest and clour that contrasts well with the colour of the light in the upper section of the image

A very beautiful picture from this very special place. My mother´s father was born on Tjörn in 1874 and all his ancestors lived here, since beginning of history...
I really enjoy this very artistic capture!

Hello Trevor ,
I like a lot the place , and the composition . The tonalities , too . About the second ground out of focus , this is a matter of taste . Whay not . Even I should have prefered with all in the focus .

Very fine capture of the small port. I like the blurry effect and the superb colors. Well taken.

Again a nice cath of the 'Swedish East Coast Mood' and light. I can feel you are trying to create your own style of photography. Also this picture doesn't look absolutelly sharp it is a nice document that tells me a lot more than many pinsharp postcards. Well done.
I am not the most social and communicative type of man - but be assured - I always say - i.e. write what I am really thinking.
