City, country, suburb, small town – this is our chance to highlight the environments we’ve experienced and enjoyed (or not!) Tina leads the challenge, and finally I’m back from Prague – just in time to join in.
The environment in which we grow up, make us who we are. A Swedish gallery from home shows where I truly belong.
So, I am not a city person, I guess most of you already knew that. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t like visiting cities – I really do. I love especially big cities with a variety of possibilities to enjoy: art, architecture, music, etc. …For a week, that is perfect. Then I gladly head back back to nature again.
Iceland provides almost everything I could want from a country, any time of the year. So these two galleries are from Iceland. Then, my city example is Prague, a gem of architecture. Somehow I have managed to avoid going there…until now.
Kafka in every corner, magnificent architecture, good food and extremely friendly and helpful people – of course we had a great week!
This week Tina leads the Lens-Artists Challenge, so please visit her wonderful site for inspiration. The different environments we live in and enjoy are part of who we are. We are looking forward to seeing what kind of environments you have experienced. Please remember to link back to Tina’s original post and tag with Lens-Artists so we can easily find you.
A massive thank you to Siobhan for guest hosting with Glowing Moments, which sent us wonderful responses from all of you. Next week, Patti is our host, so make sure to visit her amazing site. Until then, take care and be kind.

I am so impressed with your images. Wherever you are you capture the beauty of the environment. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you, Marlene, for your lovely comment! It made me happy too!
Beautiful photography Ann-Christine.
Thank you, Jude. It was nice going away for a week and to bring a camera!
I’m a city girl when it comes to the choice of where to live, but I love visiting countries with stunning landscapes so Iceland is a favourite of mine too. You’ve truly done it justice in your images of its beautiful scenery!
Thank you, Sarah, for a lovely comment!
Beautiful selections. The closing image of the church is gorgeous – but so are the beautiful wide open spaces
Glad you liked them, Nora! The city is incredibly beautiful, but many tourists.
Beautiful. I love those two galleries of Swedish landscapes. Prague and Iceland also look nice. But it is clearly Sweden which you love.
Does it show so much??? Well, it’s true…
Fabulous set of images, A C…country and city brilliantly showcased
What a fabulous – and doubtless much needed – break you seem to have had. And your wonderful gallery! I don’t know where to start. So I shan’t pick out a single one – I loved them all.
Lovely sights Ann-Christine! Oh yes, Prague is lovely. Your post brought back some memories 🙂.
I am glad to have vriught back old, precious memories!
I enjoyed so much – the verticals of the city shits but so much beauty you captured of rural and urban
Thank you, Dawn!
What fabulous galleries Ann-Christine. Too many favourites to list 😀😀
Love the boat shaped frame and the architecture.
Happy you found it a great collection! Thank you
Wow! Lovely collection for this challenge. I love that sunset silhouette of the horse.
I love it too. Sunlit Horses and silhouettes!
Marvellous images….would love to live in such surroundings
I am happy to hear you liked them, thank you!
BEAUTIFUL beautiful photos. Love the nature ones in particular.
Thanks John, nature is my habitat!
I have to agree with Tina that all the galleries are marvelous but I’m also more of a country mouse, even though I live in the suburbs 🙂
Mmm, thank you Janet. Then you are close to the countryside – always!
Oh what a weekend gift for scrolling and dreaming! I am very definitely a city girl for whom fate has dictated country life. I love the neat straight-truncated northern European forest but live surrounded by the olive-coloured untidy Australian bush . . . . both are home by now!! For a long time Iceland has been atop my wish list . . . perhaps . . . and, beautiful, cultured Prague has yet to be seen also . . . fun dreaming . . .
Never stop dreaming, that’s the thing!
Beautiful images Ann-Christine! I loved all of them. You had a great vacation.
I did, Anne, thank you!
Absolutely exquisite this week Ann-Christine. Your photography is always beautiful but this week goes even beyond your usual excellence. I couldn’t possibly choose a favorite and I loved all of your examples. Glorious
Thank you so very much, Tina. I really enjoyed the theme even if I was in a hurry!
Ann-Christine, I so adore all your environments the most. The first batch is my favorite, I think. 😀 😀
Thank you, Cee!
I agree, love forest shots, the lighting and green … I can relate
Ah yes, I thought you would. You live in wonderfully beautiful surroundings, Ritva!
Like wise 🌳🌲😊
Beautiful galleries Ann-Christin. Like you i much prefer to live in the countryside.
I thought so, yes. Country mice!
