Photographer's Note

The Woodland cemetery, Stockholm.
This is a rather unique place. It is a cemetery, but it is also natural beauty in abundance. You can walk there for hours, it´s huge, and the beauty is everywhere.
This early morning recently gave me the most fantastic light, creating unusual clarity and crispness.

It is one of three UNESCO World Heritages in Stockholm.

The following is from the Stockholm site Capitol of Scandinavia:


A place of sublime beauty and poetry. Created over a period of a quarter century (1915-1940) on about 250 acres of pine-covered boulder ridge under the direction of the famous modernist architects Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz.

Considered one of the most important works of the modernists, it evokes a Nordic philosophy on nature, life, and death. There are also a number of beautiful chapels and a visitors center. The Woodland Cemetery is a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1994.
