A wonderful trip of 10 days in Sweden last year, on the lake Vänern, with kajak, tent, campfire...
The left one, a good old from Necky, was mine.
As state Varmland, as city Karlstad - but there was no city, and as state could also stay Dalsland, Vastergotland, bordering the lake.
Lake Vänern is the largest lake in Sweden, (or more like an inland sea), and the third largest in Europe.
About 100m deep, 140 km long, 75 km large, 5,560 sq km (2,145 sq mi), fed by the Klarälven and drained by the Götaälv SW into the Kattegat. Traversed by the Göta Canal, connecting Stockholm and Göteborg. There are vast stands of forest north of the lake; pulp and paper mills line the shore. Karlstad is the principal city on the lake.
From the web:
-The natural surroundings of the lake are very rich and unspoiled. It's possible to sail on it for hours with only the water, the birds, the wooded islands and the barren skerries for company.
-Lake Vänern has Europe's largest freshwater archipelago and is home to a huge population of seabirds and waterfowl.
-Vänern is also home to 35 different species of fish, the largest number found in any lake in Sweden.
-Lake Vänern is a very important source of drinking water. The waters of the lake and of the River Göta are drunk by more than 800 000 people.
Sorry about the quality, scanned from a 400ISO negativ.
There are posibilities in PP, so feel free, show me the right way...

A very well composed shot, even the sailboat is just in the right spot and reflects the vertical of of the pine tree in the exact opposite corner. The weather seems frisky but on the other hand the sailboat gives a mediterranean feel to this pic.
It's just too bad that the shot is a little out of focus but still a nice shot which surely brings back nice memories.

A welcoming shot for me Janos. It has been raining and gloomy this last few days and anything bright and sunny is really inviting. I see you like adventure too. Kayak and friends and a good coastline to explore. Your scanner didn't do well Janos;the photo from the scanned is less saturated and a bit soft. Either you need to use NeatImage or AutoF/X to bring out the colors and sharpness.
