From a magic, hazy afternoon out at Gamla (Old) Uppsala Church (Uppsala’s first Cathedral, originating from the 12th century) and the Royal Mounds (dating from 5th and 6th century). Timeless grounds. It may look like winter, but Spring is in the air. It is. We’ve gained 4 hours of daylight in less than 2 months. Spring is in the air. It really is.
“Hang on to your hopes, my friend
That’s an easy thing to say, but if your hopes should pass away
Simply pretend that you can build them again
Look around, the grass is high
The fields are ripe
It’s the springtime of my life”
(Simon and Garfunkel)

more trees and mist
Close up through the mist
winding road by the royal mounds
translucent misty trees
misty by the mounds
dusk is falling / Gamla/Old Uppsala Church is glowing like a lantern.
Gamla/Old Uppsala Church
old house by the tracks in the mist
misty way up to the church
winding into the horizin
more misty road
you can barely make out the church even if it’s close

You can see spring is coming, you captured it. A twinkle in the light!
Beautiful the way the sun is right there behind the mist. Waiting its turn…
