The wonders of light

Kaga Church. Sweden
Kaga church, Sweden, May 2005


Light creeping in around the door
Kaga church
No one there
Just me and Åke
And those beautiful frescos inside
I look back towards the entrance
A beautiful sunny day
Light creeping in around the door
Magical

Sunset over Lake Vättern, Sweden, May 2005

Sunset over Lake Vättern, Sweden


Early evening
Feeling tired
Been hiking all day
And wondering....
Will we see a sunset tonight?
mmm... I don't think so
or?

Chilly outside
But I want to be there
Staring at the sky
Dark clouds of rain
But oooh there it is
The sun

It's hypnotising
A shiver
Not because I am cold
Just because
It is so beautiful

Niagara Falls, Canada, December 2002

Niagara Falls, Canada


Light
Beams
It's winter
Cold
Freezing cold
And snowing lightly

I know
It's tacky
But fun
What is it?
An UFO?
Noooo

These are the lights
that light up a natural wonder
Niagara Falls

The convent of Vadstena, Sweden, May 2005

The convent of Vadstena, Sweden
The convent of Vadstena, Sweden


The long hallway
Doors on either side
And then there is that light
Almost blinding the eye
And drawing you to the end

Sounds and images in my head
I can just imagine them here
The black dresses
The hollow echo
A door closes
Their silent whispers
And their ongoing prayers

This a place where history was made
Where history feels so present
It's all gone now
But the light is still here
And the feeling
Vadstena Convent
Silence
Thoughts
So peaceful
