Worldwide Photo Walk 2012

Worldwide Photo Walk 2012

Last weekend it was time again for Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk. On Saturday, October 13th 2012, it was the fifth time the walk was organized and the second time I participated. This time we had a fully booked group with 50 photographers joining our Stockholm walk. On the image above you see our walk-leader, Max Gennel, giving final instructions to the group before we kick-off our walk.

The route of the Stockholm walk.

Our walk led us through Vasastan towards and over Barnhus-bridge. We continued alongside the water, parallel Kungholmsstrand, on the north side of Kungsholmen all the way towards Ekelunds-bridge. From that point we walked over Karlbergsstrand into Vasastan again.

It was a rich walk with wonderful views over the city, beautiful sights over the water and plenty of autumn colored nature to photograph. After the walk we met up in a cozy restaurant, Oljebaren, and enjoyed a well deserved lunch.

Also this year it was great to meet and catch up with so many fellow photographers. A big thank you to our walkleader for a very well organized photo walk!

A few of my photos.

Below is a selection of the photos I shot during the walk:

For the October 2012 wallpaper I have chosen an image of Stockholm. The photo is taken from Riddarholmen in central Stockholm overlooking Kungsholmen with a clear view on City Hall or Stadshuset (click the image above to view and download!).

During the photoshoot I also created a panorama view over Kungsholmen.

If you would like the wallpaper in another size just drop me a note.
