Photographer's Note

This picture was taken yesterday outside the Swedish Radio building (which was once the Hasselblad Building). The night had been cold, but I took this photo, it was already 4 degrees above zero. This was probably the last chance to catch some perch or whitefish.

The view is straight east (see the map view) and this is the Lundby Harbour.

On the southern side of the Gota River you can see the Skanska Building, which is 83 metres tall and was finished in 1989. The architect was Ralph Erskine.

You can also see the four masts of the barque (Barken) Viking, built in 1906. She participated in several of the Great Grain Races from Victoria, Australia to Falmouth, Cornwall. Barken Viking won the Grain Race of 1948.

I have added a complementary picture, as a WS. I had moved about 20 metres north and took that picture in a southeast direction. Across the river you can see the two churches inside the moat. To the left is Chistinae Church (the German Church) and to right is Gustavii Church (the Cathedral).

Between them is the tower at Liseberg (the amusement park). You can also see the top of Ferris wheel there.

Update March 3rd

I have added two more WS pictures, that I took today! The first one at exactly the same place as in the main upload. The second was taken at the moat, in central Gothenburg!

Winter is apparently not yet over, there are still people trying to catch a fish through the ice.
