Photographer's Note

This will look much clearer and sharper in a new tab.

This is a relatively new view from one of the longest streets on Södermalm, crossing most of the island in a north-south direction. The tall building was opened as recently as 2020.

I think of it as a "stranger in town", because its size and style is so different from the design and colours that characterize the central parts of Stockholm. This view describes the differences quite well.

The tall building is actually situated on the city's southern mainland, so there is an invisible stretch of water somewhere beyond the trees. Probably its location outside the "inner city" made it acceptable to the local politicians and their advisory so called "beauty council".

After I decided to post this on TE I remembered I had a few photos taken from the 27th floor Skybar, where I was invited for lunch in mid-December. You can see two of them in the WS.

Click at Map: view to see approximately where I took this photo. You will find that this slope is not quite as steep as my camera lens made it look.

It was a dull day and unfortunately the sky is rather washed out. I don't particularly like that, but I like artificial blue skies even less, so I decided to keep it like this.
