Photographer's Note

This is in the heart of the province of Värmland. The word “värm” makes you think of “värme” which is “heat” or “warm” in English. Unfortunately there is no connection language-wise. Otherwise this title would have been perfect, as the picture was taken on a very warm day when we had above 30°C.

The lake is Övre Brocken (Upper Brocken) in the municipality of Torsby and this place is called Nötön (Nut Island). This is one of our favourite places in Sweden, we spent most of our summer holidays here, from 1973 until 1988, when our children were small. They all learned to swim in this lake.

I have uploaded other pictures from this place, with more information in their notes.
One was called Twin Peaks and the other Nut Island.

You can also read more about ”Warmland” here.

As a coincidence, I noted that Bev had taken another picture the very same day. It was warm everywhere in northern Europe that day…

If you are looking for any action in this picture, you ahve to look carefully, there is in fact a girl in the water at the end of the jetty, kicking up small waves. Maybe this was a bit early in the morning for all the tourists in their mobile homes here.
