This is the Strandvägen waterfront of Stockholm. Strandvägen connecting the city centre with Östermalm and Djurgården.
Östermalm is one of the older areas of Stockholm where you can find many of these office/residential buildings in all kind of soft pastel colors.
Strandvägen leads you straight to the center of the city and from the POV it takes only a 15-20 minute walk to Kungsträdgården or Sergelstorg which both are in the middle of the centre.
Djurgården which is on the left side of the POV is part of the Nationalstadsparken. A national park within the Stockholm city limits and contains the eastern green lungs of Stockholm. On Djurgården you will find Skansen, one of the oldest open air museums in the world and the Vasamuseum which is frequently visited by TE members and the best museum of Stockholm if not Sweden if you ask me. The Vasa was build by some Dutch and unfortunately sank on its maiden voyage after only a few hundred meters beacuse of only a little windshear while having too little ballast in the belly. You can find a very good photo of the Vasa in Tatadalou's gallery) (Sorry for the shameless plugg but I don't have a photo of my own).
Scanned from slide. No sources needed, I lived in Stockholm for 2,5 years.

les couelurs sont superbes dans cette photo et cela accentue la perspective du cadrage. Belle qualité dans la prise. Bravo

Very nice cityscape. Good capture in diagonal. I like the movement of the boats and the people on the wharf. Beautiful colors, good light.

Very nice POV, with great use of the picture diagonal for the perspective.
Nice colors, too.

I like very much the POV of your photo. The colors are great too. The blue is very vivid.

This is indeed a beautiful shot with superb perspective. The perspective of the boats and the buildings forms a nice triangle. The image is lovely and sharp and has great natural colours. Very nice work Harko!

The beautiful light is the first thing that struck me on this photo and the wonderfully saturated blues. I like the angle you chose to compose the photo so the perspective on the strong diagonals almost meet at the vanishing point.

Zomer in Zweden. Dat ziet er goed uit Harko.
Mooie brede huizenrij en volop activiteit in het water. Goed bijeengebracht.

The picture of this waterfront is truly beautiful, with the boats and the impressive buildings lining it. Excellent saturated colours in the sky and water as well.
