RAINBOW OVER HAMMARBY SOUND
This day was very special to me, since I was arranging a traditional crayfish party in my apartment, to inaugurate it, so to speak. The guests were expected later, fortunately, for, just an hour earlier, there was a thunderstorm brewing over southern Stockholm. After a short rain the weather was calming down again and the sun started to come out from between clouds, shining like a giant spotlight on the buildings across the sound. Soon, as if destined to stimulate my party preparations, a most beautiful rainbow emerged, over the narrow outlet of Hammarby Sound (Hammarby Sjö) that lies hidden behind the apartment building to the left of the quay.
