Monsters everywhere

Posted: May 30, 2013 in Jämtland (County), My photographs, The Great Lake Monster


Here is a snapshot of a Great Lake Monster recently placed down by the harbor in Östersund, one of 20 painted in different colours and ways that tourists and locals can see all over town this season. It is in fact financed by local authorities and the model for the monster in question is a childrens book character called Birger that is very popular over here among the very young.

Within a week or two now, this harbor will be jam packed with boats. The holidays are coming up and in the next three to four months thousands of tourists will invade this area. Some, perhaps, with hopes to see a glimpse of the real Great Lake Monster, that is sighted and reported every single year in local media.

Let us see what 2013 has in store.
