2012
The Tree in the Pond No Longer Reflecting 

 Just a few reflections to begin 2012. Just below these lines you see the sign on the tree from the post that was the most enjoyable (25 September 2011), not least because it required many hours of running along the Göta Canal, then photographing, and then composing. A group of artists working under the name of Meteorprojekt placed a variety of objects and inventions along a stretch of the canal (see the post) with the sign you see here: Har du sett något? Have you seen something?

I simply add the suggestion När du ser något, ta tiden att titta - noga. When you see something, take the time to look at carefully. 

My New Year's card, sent so far only to family, suggests that you take the time to study two photographs of The Tree in The Pond (km 3.2, LOK milen, Vidingsjö, Ullstämma naturreserv). I say no more. (Just click on the first picture and you can see the trees at full screen size. Going out to visit my friend - The Tree that is - now Saturday, 21 January).

     Den första Lundgren jag vet något om var skogsvaktare uppe i Hofors och som Ni kan förstå från bilderna är träd, levande eller icke levande en väsentlig del av mitt liv. 
Jag hade inte haft en chans att göra annat än fotografera trädet tack vare placeringen In The Middle of the Pond. Men när jag kom tillbaka till Linköping söndag 8/1 var det klar blå himmel uppe och helt vit snö nere. Då var valet lätt. Hur hade trädet nu? Bilden visar svaret. No more reflections until spring, at least for The Tree in the Pond.

Spår
This pond was created when I was in Burlington, Vermont in June and so too was another pond upstream in what had been a wheat field crossed by a road at km 8 on Vidingsjö milen (10 km trail). I did not venture out on the ice to get to know the Tree in the Pond close up since I did not know if the ice would bear my weight.
Jag sprang tillbaka till den andra dammen och där, till min förvåning, såg jag konstiga spår (tracks) i snön. Here they are, titta! (Look!) Whatever made them was drawn to the sun (This is Sweden, after all.)

Och här är svaret-Here is the answer. Det var en man som hade skridskor designade för "long-distance" skridskor åkande. I was both jealous and happy. I love to skate so that is the jealousy part but I want to go out to the Tree in the Pond and now I know I can so that is the happy part.
Det visade sig att farsan var med den yngsta ishockey spelaren i familjen och så skall det vara som i den näst sista bilden. It turned out that the father was there with the youngest hockey player in the family, and that is as it should be as you seen in the next to last picture. (Fotnot för någon som har sett SVT Kronjuvelerna som jag har, Ni kanske kan reflektera om vad Ni ser här och var och en av ungarna i filmen, de som kan skridskokonsten så att säga.




Hör av dig om du har sett något!  Let me hear from you if you have seen something! Njut av 2012 ute i skogen, på isen-Enjoy 2012 out in the forest, on the ice. 
Nu har jag  fått krama The Tree in the Pond och samtidigt fått se något nytt och vackert, iskristallerna på den elektrifierad vajern runt dammen
Now I have been able to hug the Tree in the Pond and at the same time see "något nyttt", something beautiful, ice crystals on the electrified wire fence around the pond.
