Scanian idyll

Flowering rapefield with windmill in Scania, Sweden.

Flowering rapefield with windmill in Scania, Sweden.

Vintage Weekly: This picture was taken on a walk in the spring of 1971. I strongly suspect that this wiew now is covered with asphalt from one of the myriad of motorways that have been built during the last 20 years. It is anyhow somewhere east of Limhamn that is a part of Malmö, Sweden. The windmill and the open fields were typical for the south-scanian landscape. It was called the granary of Sweden. In this picture the rapefield is flowering in the foreground. And I wouldn´t find this place again, even though I live close by it. I have as usual kept the border made by the cardbord the direct-positive film is mounted in.
