I was having a morning stroll at sunrise and spotted those colours in the sky. It was a damn freezy and windy morning but somehow those warm colours warmed me...+ there´s a bonus in the image. See that distant 'bubble' on the horizon?? It's a...oh wait, you tell me!! Any ideas what it is??? If you can tell what it is, as Abba sang back in the 70s 'The winner takes it all!' 😁😁 Have a great Thursday evening folks! 😃🌺💜 (Taken with one of my retro lenses called Industar, a soviet Russian lens, almost 50 years old. Works pretty good uh?)


el murko: Haha, I know! Is it an arena? The Ericsson is it? And I didn't Google it, I do know a little of northern Europe 😃 Glorious colours. Have a beautiful night 🌄😴😴🤩

_marisol: Nah, it´s a hot air balloon coming to pick me up and take me some place warm...The Bahamas perhaps? Got an idea! I´ll hop in the balloon and move to your neighbour island, Cat Island sounds pretty good, though I have no clue what it is like. At least they have some kind of airport. Ok, it´s a Globen Arena where Finland won the ice hockey Championship against Sweden, goals 4-1. Don´t lol to me, ice hockey is here as big thing as it is in Canada. Thanks mate! Spend a great day with ur bench project 😃🔧🔩🤬

el murko: Hahaha, omg you made me snort my coffee! 🤣🤣 You keep me smiling all day, thanks! 😁 I was on Cat island almost a couple of years ago, it's very pretty and even less developed than here, but not too many cats unfortunately, I was hoping for more! You can even see Cat Island from Eleuthera so we'll have to set up a semaphore and telescope system for when the internet goes down 🔭🏴🏳️ 😆 That's not too good for HD images tho lol. It's lunchtime here, so I'm guessing the sun has gone down there already. Thanks too and have a great evening, lovely, a peaceful night and an awesome day tomorrow 🌸💮🌸😊

ttomzz: ...was gonna guess either a science center and telescope or an arena....loving that lens, 50 years... the optics are incredible...have LottZ of fun, (and please tell Lady S. I send Big HuggZ)!!! 😎🌴🎶

_marisol: Science Center would have made sense but yes, it´s an arena. Globen Ice Hockey Arena, or actually it´s a multi-purpose arena, they organize all kinds of events in the arena, like band gigs. My Industar lens is a pancake version which is why I took it with me, fits ín my purse easily. Its focal length is 58 mm so it´s a portrait lens, works just fine with macros too. I was lucky to find the version which is in excellent shape, the focus ring moves smoothly, no stiffness at all and the aperture ring works flawlessly. Been thinking to buy a Canon EF-S 24 mm f2.8 pancake lens, it weighs only 125 grams! Not a bad price, 240$. Me want it! 😁 I will certainly tell your greetings to my lil Lady a little later tonight. She´s currently in the wax cabinet with my cousin and I´m babysitting my cousin´s baby 😃 Have a wonderful weekend Sir! LotZ of hUgZ from me! 🌺🌴🌴🌞💜

mystmr61164: Beautiful shot Marisol, if I wanted to think back I could probably remember the so g you're talking about. 😎

Posted: 2019 Jan 18 3:18:59 AM

_marisol: Thank you Mike but now you managed to confuse me...what does the remainder of your comment mean 'the so g you're talking about'?? I have no clue whatsoever about it. So could you please help me out a bit? Anyway, the bubble is a Globen Arena, about a mile or one and a half miles away from the spot I took the shot (focal length 58 mm). Cheers Mikey! Happy weekend! 😃🌺

karin :): I thought is was a building, a church..but I guess it's a cloud..

Posted: 2019 Jan 18 11:28:13 AM

karin :): zooming in it's a hugh balloon...an arena , an ET thing... it's not fitting in an old town..to modern

Posted: 2019 Jan 18 11:31:02 AM

_marisol: Pretty good guesses! It´s indeed an arena, a so called Globen Arena for ice hockey, band gigs etc. It´s not actually located in the Old Town, Globen Arena locates almost 3 km away from the Old Town, 5 subway stops away. I took this shot on Götgatan, about 2 km away from Globen. My Industar lens focal length is 58 mm so it kinda brought it closer, I mean if I´d taken this shot with my 10 mm wide-angle lens we could hardly see Globen in the image, although would have been fun to take a shot with my 800 mm lens! The 'bubble' would be huge! Dankjewel Karin. Happy weekend 🌺

_alessandro_: Buongiorno Mari! Complimenti per questa straordinaria foto, eccezionale lente vintage!👍 Ti auguro una buona giornata!👋👋👋😘

Posted: 2019 Jan 18 12:01:24 PM

_marisol: Buonasera Alessandro! Grazie davvero per il tuo commento! Industar 58 mm, è una versione pancake. La stessa lente che ti ho mandato una foto...forse circa un anno fa. La lente è in condizioni eccellenti. Ten un lindo fin de semana! 😃🌺

_alessandro_: Buona sera Mari! Certo che ricordo bene! Sono affascinato dalle lenti vintage!😍 Buon weekend anche a voi!👍😘🌼🌸

hogman72664 or david: Looks fabulous but it also looks damned cold. Love breathing winter air as long as I am warm. I hope to find time to post a couple of pics for Sandra early next week. Have a great weekend x

Posted: 2019 Jan 18 3:55:24 PM

_marisol: You´re spot on saying love breathing winter air! It feels super fresh but you have to go out from the city centre because car exhaust feels even worse than in summer. But walking on coastline near my home is refreshing in winter weather. Just got to know that the new snowstorm will arrive to southern FIN tomorrow when I´ll fly back home. There´s already a lot of snow in my town. And the weather stays very cold. I wanna make at least 2 strolls a day. Cold weather is not a problem as long as you dress warmly. And you´re right, that morning I took this shot was fricken cold, -8 I think, but later in the afternoon we had +3! It felt like I was in Canary Island haha...thanks so much and have a fabulous weekend! 🌞🌴🌴😃🌺

_marisol: Go'morron David. I forgot to add my reply that Sandra has asked the CuteZone. I told her that David has to work at nights like mom so he doesn´t always have time to put together pictures but he might post something next week. Her answer was; if he works at night, how he can take pictures in daylight, when will he sleep? 😃😃 Sometimes children´s logic is surprisingly clear! Thank you very much for your efforts for Sandra 💗

stefpics2: It attracts attention, but I'm with Karin. It's a bit out of place compared to the houses. And 50 years old ? Sturdy lens !

Posted: 2019 Jan 18 6:26:18 PM

_marisol: I hear you, but note that Globen Arena is not located in the area I took this shot. It´s actually 2 km away from this spot. Globen was built in an area where there are no historical buildings, it´s rather an industrial area, about 3 km away from the Old Town = 5 subway stops away. This is Götgatan in Södermalm (which is my fav district). My lens focal length is 58 mm so Globen looks as if it were closer. I found the lens on eBay and got lucky. The lens is in excellent condition, both rings move smoothly, no stiffness and cosmetically just great. It´s a pancake lens (which is why I took it with me, easy to carry) and I think it has been stored in a box in a closet for many years. The seller claimed something like this. Thnx! 🌺

mystmr61164: Hi Marisol, I am sorry I confused you. I was referring to the ABBA song. I commented that if I thought back I could remember the song.

markiv: The lens work is still amazing👌. Not sure what the dome is but i let my imagination take over and make a story.."Marisol and the Mystery Dome"😁😂

Posted: 2019 Jan 19 6:02:34 PM

_marisol: Mari and her mystery dome...haha, I like that! But it's, after all, a Globen Arena locating in a different district (or neighborhood). In my mind, it's pretty ugly building but undoubtedly looks cool in the distance. Thanks for your comment. Happy Valentine's day! 💙

lowgonlowpaw: Amazing shot darling😉👌
