Riddarholmen (Swedish: "The Knights' Islet")
Is a small islet in central Stockholm.
The island forms part of Gamla Stan, the old town, and houses a number of private palaces dating from the 17th century.
The main landmark is the church Riddarholmskyrkan, the royal burial church since the 16th century and where a number of Swedish monarchs lie buried.
The western end of the island gives a magnificent panoramic and photogenic view of the bay Riddarfjärden, often used by TV journalists with Stockholm City Hall in the background. A statue of Birger Jarl, traditionally regarded to be the founder of Stockholm, is standing on a pillar in front of the Bonde Palace north of Riddarholmskyrkan.

Great view, nice looking lake. Good colors, only the top of picture is overexposed and the photo was taken probably through the window, so there are some signs of reflection.
But overall it is good photo.

Great light on this view with the pale blue sky echoed in the sculpted ice.
A pleasure to look at.
