This photo was taken at Vaxholm.
"Vaxholm is a genuine small archipelago city with many summer guests. Ever since the 1800s, the harbor has been a center for boat traffic and for archipelago life.
Vaxholm´s history runs from the first half of the 16th century when Gustav Vasa had a block house built on the little island where Vaxholm Fortress is located today.
Today the city is a prime place to visit for both Stockholmers and tourists. The whole commune has about 10000 inhabitants.
You can get to Vaxholm by boat, bus, or automobile. Two bridges tie the main island of Vaxön with the mainland."

Whenever I see richness in colour, a balnced saturation.........I am sure its Canon.
The orange tones attracted from the thumbnail.
I wish I could jump into the water, reach the first orange roof and relax in the calm atmosphere wiht the clouds saying bye bye to the blue sky.
I can write..................................long for this beautiful spectacke..........but I want to enjoy it even more.

This is a truly exemplary composition, one third of each - water, land, sky. The calm water with just enough ripples to create fine reflexes, the scattered clouds making the sky look much nicer than if it had been just dark blue. Perfect colours and sharpness. Very well done. I have been to Vaxholm a few times but I hardly noticed it looked as pretty as this.

The atmosphere is gorgeous, sharp but natural colors, balanced composition, makes one just jump into the picture and take a stroll in Vaxholm :-)

this is an outstanding composition that only at first sight gives the impression of relaxation. You have captured a lot of dynamic, I really like the ripples on the water and I can even see the clouds moving. The colours are phantastic too. Congratulation!

Shimmering relections, interesting rooflines and a nice sky together make a relaxing portrayal of Vaxholm. Well done, Marlene

Seeing your description Vaxon island is connected with the main land. As Vaxholm is very visited the attendant services must be good. Rides by boat surely are one the tourist preferences. The picture shows the harbour and it is a first contact for me to begin. Best regards. Domingos
