For the winter sunrise closely followed by sunset. And as Ole once stated: "often you don't even need to move the tripod!"

There's more in the arsenal.

Saltsild = Salted herring with cold potates.
Smalahovud = Mutton heads specially prepared (apparently the eye is particularly delicious) Never tasted it! Its the ultimate WMD (p)!

And as always hand-knitted sweathers as a surefire rallying point!

On a serious note, the light is very, very special here both in the winter and spring, we have long evenings and long mornings with a special silvery quality to the light.

If you master that and are able to catch it on film and express it, youre certainly a Master of Photography.

Ron the Swedes, our great neighbor to the east have something even worse :

Surströmming! That is tinned, salted herring from the Baltic sea, after a special process. Apparently slight decomposition takes place inside the tins, unlike anything else in the world.

When a can is opened, it better be in the open, the FUMES will empy a room the size of a football field. Sometimes the damn things are said to explode and spray those close by.

The Swedes love this stuff, which goes to show they are true descendants of the vikings!

OK, Terrific !

Thanks for the update Erik.
Many years ago I read an article in National Geographic
about Rotten Shark, it's allowed to rot for a few months.
And then consumed at the peak of Yumminess !

Have you ever sampled any of these delicacies ?

Lutefisk of course and a LOT of salted herring in my younger days, we used to have a poor mans soup back with my parents with salted herring that was actually very GOOD!
Salte herring was poor peoples food, back in the day, looooong before oil, nowadays the youngsters eat pizza and mexican, they know NOTHING!

Surströmming is a WMD in my opinion, and I would never eat a muttons head with the eye steering at me! Other parts of mutton is delicious though and the autumn when the lambs are gathered from mountian ranges is still a season of festivity, when we put the knife to those lambs....

Lutefisk of course
.
And I thought that eating oysters, and raw sea urchin was extreme !
I will have to broaden my gastronomical horizons, the maggoty cheese
from Spain might be a good way to get started.

OOOoooppss.

We are getting off topic.

Maybe we need to start an "International Delicacies" Thread !

Ron I think the delicacies goes well with the nature of this, the camera visits many parts of the world, so why not get to know a little about the places?

Haggis aint exactly what brings water in my mouth, nor some british foods..... and oirish potatoes can be savoured as whiskey, no?

You guys are making me hungry...

Since this is the Christmas season, can I offer you our traditional food for the ORIGINAL Father Cristmas, not the americanized, disney hollyweird version with the reindeers?

The original father christmas was NISSEN, he was something of a cousinn of the oirish leprachauns, and lived in a farm barn.

He would always hide from humans, only kids had a small chance of ever seeing him, and everyone better had treat him with respect or all ill would fall upon both man and beast on the farm...

In the christmas season it was customary to set out a plate of porridge, coocked from rice, but not the long, asian variant. The dish was served with one eye of molten butter and in the porridge would be one coocked almond..... usually sprinkled with lots of sugar and some spice...

Actually furinners get confused with us here, we eat rice-porridge from time to time, maybe once a month, apparently people i less sophisticated places never eat porridge after they stop using diapers (and/or start using them again!), and that is a pity, its godd for yer bowels! :p

Erik: 1) I don't know

and 2) I have oatmeal with some regularity :whistling: and can attest to it's power to keep the pipes clean. :blink:

I have never had the courage to order meself some Spotted Dick, though I would swear I saw some on a grocery shelf here in Seattle within the last six months.

Just to change the subject briefly.

Because I'm a plumber we do some work on gas piping every once in a while.
usually it's 2" piping. A gas valve is called a lubricated cock.

Can you see where I'm going with this ?

When it's time to purchase the material, I have to find the courage
to ask for a 2" lubricated cock. You can image the response from
the counterman, and the guys waiting for their material !

Sorry for interrupting.
