We went further north too.... to visit my family in Strömsund and östersund. The winter is long, cold and dark, but when summer comes, it's like nature tries to compensate. Summer is so lush, so overwhelming, so full of sun!
My uncle and his wife took the trout they had fished and warm smoked it for us. Delicious! I had tried warm smoked salmon on Ålö, this was something different!
When you look at the landscape here and all the pine trees, you might have a guess to why Les Landes and their pine trees feel so good to me...
The light is special, even in August
