Bronze age foot carvings and burial mound

I had been looking for this place for quite a while as I’ve read about the carvings in a book from the early 20th century.
This is a bronze age burial mound , on top of it is a rock with feet carvings.

The symbol of the foot is often found in connection with a female figure – suggesting a connection. Some scholars have even proposed that the foot is a symbol of the ancient goddess Nerthus (mentioned by the Roman historian Tacitus in the first century AD in his famous work “Germania” where he met with the remote Suebi tribes.

A lot of traffic to my blog has come from people interested in cat photography, months ago I decided to drop the cats from this blog – instead creating a new blog for LaPerm cats only. So here’s another link to the LaPerm blog:

Thank you very much for all the positive feedback I’ve had from you all!

Kiln at the southernmost point of the Scandinavian peninsula

Once upon a time kilns like these were used to produce quicklime – hence the name “Limekiln”.

Spring exhibition

So I set out to shoot a couple of spring-themed photos for our local photoclub. The format of the photos were pre-set to 2×5 (20×50 cm) and it was somewhat of a challenge to compose for said format. Cold, rainy and muddy – but I was prepared :D
