We are sailing

This past week I went down to visit my brother and his family again, and to celebrate my second niece’s birthday. On Wednesday and Thursday we went out on the big lake Sommen in a sailing boat. The idea was to sail, but long story short we only did a little bit of sailing and a lot of engine running.

Since we were going to be out on the sea I decided to bring my old Nikon D700 instead of the new camera. I put my 35 mm lens on it, since on the boat there would be less space, and I thought a wider view might help. Here are some of my favourite photos from the week.

Olav put his head in the doorway and gave me this opportunity to capture how it was for him.

The middle one had carried out all the pillows and blankets to build her own little nest in the hammock.

A short glimpse from this past week. It was great fun to visit my family in Småland again.
