Hi!

Im spending easter weekend at the small island Oaxen that is situated in the archipelago south of Stockholm.

Oaxen was for a long time only a limestone quarry but now its a mix of permanent residence and holiday residence, around hundred total residents.

They have saved some structures from the old industry like one lime kiln.

I took a morning walk this morning and felt for some BW conversions of these.

These are interesting in sepia tone. I would love to see color versions too.
Thanks!

Maybe I will give color a chance when i get more time. Somehow this place looks better in monotone imo. Decided for the sepia tone instead for a more neutral high contrast because we have our first really warm spring days right now and for me the tone give a bit more warm appearance.

A very interesting place. You captured it well.
Thanks Allan!

A wonderful series, Daniel!
Really like the compositions!
Beautiful and consistent processing as well.
Thank you so much for your kind words. Im always working with my compositions. I struggle a bit more to be consistent with the processing...

I like the proceesing--it reminds of a time long ago. Great composition too.
Thanks!
My mother in law, that lives on the Oaxen is really in to local history. Its actually 300 year ago this year when the russians burnt parts of Sweden. They actually passed this Island with their armada but it was just a small rock without buildings so they didnt stop there. But much of the villages and small towns they burned is close by.
But to be fair the Swedish King Karl the
twelfth rampaged bits of Russia and all the way down to Turkey. So this was kind of paypack from the russian Tsar for this. They came with a big fleet and around 20 000 men. They came at Stockholm but opted to split in half and attack south and north of our capital city. Sweden defence concentrated on defending Stockholm and kind of left the smaller towns and areas to fend for them self.
This is a tramautic event in Swedish history and kind of the end of old offensive Sweden with desire of control of vast amount of land.
