Who’s afraid of…

…green, yellow and blue.

These might as well be the three national colors of Sweden.
Of course, we all know that Sweden’s flag is colored yellow and blue.

What struck me during a stay in Sweden in March this year is that nature on the southeast coast of this beautiful country, shows the three colors mentioned above: green coniferous forests, yellow reed collars and – on sunny days – the blue of the water from the Baltic Sea.

The photos in this series have mostly been made during this stay in the Kalmar region, a few on the travel going there and returning home.
