It currently is very gray and foggy weather here in Sweden, so I have been digging into some older photos for the March 2014 wallpaper to match that mood.
The March 2014 wallpaper was taken in Paris on a very foggy day, the clouds were hanging so low that the top of the Eiffel tower could not be seen. Enjoy!

In July we have been on sight-seeing in Skåne, the most southern province of Sweden. One day we visited the natural reserve Kullaberg in north-west Skåne. This is the area where the sculpture Nimis is build.
Nimis, which is Latin for “too much”, is a series of wooden sculptures constructed by artist Professor Lars Vilks. They are a massive, wooden labyrinthine structure connected by several wooden towers. The structure consist of 75 tonnes of driftwood the artist has found on the coastline.
Lars Vilks started to build Nimis in 1980 and it has been the subject of a long-running legal dispute between the Swedish authorities and the artist. As no permission was given to build on the site within the nature reserve, the County Administrative Board in Skåne has sought to have Nimis demolished, despite the fact that it has become a popular tourist attraction.
As Nimis’ existence is not sanctioned by the state, it is difficult to find – there are no official sign posts, nor is it marked on maps. It lies a few kilometers northwest of the town of Arild and somewhat farther from the town of Mölle, and can only be reached on foot following a well-worn path with yellow “N”s painted on trees and fences. The path begins as an easy stroll past Himmelstorp, a well-preserved eighteenth-century farmstead, but quickly becomes a steep and rocky climb down to the coast.
“Birds over Lake Pichola“
To honor the spring with its burst of new life I have chosen a vivid, colorful and burning wallpaper for the month of May.
My photo “Birds over Lake Pichola” is the base of this wallpaper. It has become one of my favorite images from Udaipur in India, capturing Lake Pichola in a serene silence combined with high-flying livelihood as a symbol of the spiritual atmosphere of this wonderful Rajasthani town.
The original photo has been edited with the onOne Software plug-in, Perfect Photo Suite 6, for Adobe Photoshop.
