Ale stones

Our World

Yesterday we went for a walk along the south coast of Sweden. We parked our car and went away up and down the steep hills.

We are heading “Ales stenar” - Ale stones – and Kåseberga a little fishing village.

The area is very popular for this kind of sports.

Milton is ok now and runs along with us.

Ales Stenar (Ale Stones), the mysterious "ship-setting" made of 59 large boulders set in a layout of a ship, 67 metre in length, 19 metre in breadth. This monumental stone formation is located just outside a fishing village of Kåseberga, approximately eighteen kilometres southeast of Ystad in Skåne, on an astoundingly flat, grassy headland that overlooks the narrow, pebbly beach of the Baltic Sea. The view from the Ales Stenar offers an open 180o sea horizon and simultaneously an open 180o land horizonAndrew M Kobos

My husband (hiding behind the stone)  placed Milton on one of the stones.

On the hills there are both sheep and cows.

Here we arrive in Kåseberga and we will have a fish plate for lunch and then go back to the car.

Like a running fence – ha ha – not so artistic as Christos but also beautiful, I think.
I love Christos “Runing fence”.

The sun is setting while we are walking back.

We reach the car just in time … to see the sun disappeare … it is a kind of magic

What a neat and beautiful place to visit. The rocks are cool and remind me of Stonehedge. Milton looks adorable and king of the rock. Wonderful photos, thanks for sharing your world.

What an awesome place and what a great hike indeed, Birgitta! The stones remind me of Stonehenge as well. Terrific captures! Glad Milton is better and was able to go with you! Hope you have a great week!

The lighting over thwe water in the first photos is so enchanting! And those stones make a fascinating silhouette against the fading light!

Hi there - splendid post. I wonder if we will ever really understand the full significance of places like Ales Stenar? Have our minds become too full with the ideas of now to understand the ideas of then?
