As swedish as it gets
Lens: DA 50-200 Camera: K10D Photo Location: Stockholm, Sweden ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/90s Aperture: F16

One of the better swedish tradition is the midsummer weekend in the end of june, when we celebrate until sunrise (which isn't really that hard since the sun rises very early this time of the year). Anyway, I was sick that weekend and had to rest and stay out of the sun. At one point though I was a little pissed at the whole situation and grabbed my Pentax and went out, found a nice spot in the shadow, waited for some wind and shot this.

I personally don't care much for flags as national symbols but their colors can be useful sometimes.

Thanks a lot! Isn't it amazing how we (at least I) constantly drool over the most expensive gear and then the least expensive lens performs like this!

really nice, the flag is so subtle that if the title would have been different it would have taken at least 2 looks to figure it out
