Photographer's Note

Back to the year of 2007....

Just a simple glimpse of "pure Nature" with a touch of "civilization" represented by the the Kaknäs tower (Kaknästornet) - a TV tower.

The photo was taken on Djurgården, but pretty far from the main "tourist area", deeper into the main part of the island - that's why there are no people around (it's an answer to those who, maybe, will think that it would be nice if there was someone walking along the road...).

No matter how many times I walked this far along this particular road, close to the water, I hardly met 2-3 people (most probably they live in this part of the island as there are houses near the road, they are just hidden by the trees).


Kaknäs tower is a major hub of Swedish television, radio and satellite broadcasts. It was finished in 1967, designed by architect Bengt Lindroos, and the height is 155 meters (including antenna 170 meters).

It can not communicate with some southern satellites due the environmental orders that protect the ancient oak trees owned by the King of Sweden. These block the "line-of-sight".
Info about the shot:
Camera settings - Automatic.
After some hesitation I decided to crop a bit of the left part of the image.
