Skeppsholmen is one of the islands of Stockholm. It is connected with Blasieholmen and Kastellholmen by bridges. Positioned strategically at the Baltic Sea entrance to Stockholm it has traditionally been a place of military buildings. Nowadays the military presence is rather low and the Museum of Modern Art is dominant instead. It is the main modern art museum of Stockholm. In the same building is also an architecture museum. The island also is host to Östasiatiska Muséet (in English: East-Asian museum). At the southern shore is an old sailing ship named af Chapman which is used as a youth hostel these days. You get there by foot from Kungsträdgĺrden past Grand Hotel and Nationalmuseum, by bus number 65 the very same way or by boat from Slussen, Djurgĺrden or Nybroplan. Stockholm Jazz Festival is a popular annual summer event at Skeppsholmen.

what a beautiful photo George!
It looks that ship is from the two women. They stop there and got out to relax and apreciate the view! :)
Nice colors and POV.

George, that's a very nice post!
A postcard, in my opinion...
Colors are well saturated, composition is excellent, framing the scene with the overhanging branches and also giving the right atmosphere thanks to the two ladies that soak up the sun...The boat also adds a lot of character to this scene...well done!!

Once more I stumbled on a picture of "Budapestman" - and once again one I like very much. Your point of view works very well and the shown is interesting. All in wonderful colours. A real summerly picture!
Greetings from not so summerly Germany!

Good day George.
Very well done composition. Great job getting the whole mast into the shot while maintaining a few of the shorelines.

Hi George - the perfect swedish combination, the flag, the colourful nordic architecture, and the bleach blonde sunbather, I also like the way the masts and clouds fill the sky.

Aha, hasonlňan komponŕlt fotň mint az én Mŕltaim: hajň, ŕrbňc teljes magassŕgban (az enyémen csak majdnem) és vŕros a hŕttérben. A kulonbség az, hogy ez sokkal élethubb mivel telětettek a szěnek. Nagyon tetszik ahogyan természetes keretként felhasznŕltad a novényzetet mindkét oldalrňl. Ismét csak gratulŕlni tudok!
Készulsz a tuzijŕtékra?

This is a lovely scene of one of he islands of Stockholm. It doesn't look this warm or green for long in this part of the world! So it's a great scene to witness. I love the way you have divided up the composition to include some foreground interest, the waterway and the buildings in the distance. Very nice work.

Beautiful picture, very well composed, very sharp and with superb colours. The inclusion of the two girls gave the photo an increased interest. Well done.

This is a great shot George. Its bright and colourful and full of summer atmosphere.
Including the tree branches balances the composition well with the mast of the boat on the right, and the people give scale to the scene. I've always wanted to go to Scandinavia, its just so expensive that I always decide to go somewhere a bit cheaper in the end. Maybe one day.
