Klädesholmen,Sweden is home not only to the Salt & Sill hotel, Sweden’s first floating hotel, but also breathtaking scenery.
This tiny town, which had a mere 325 residents in 2010, was particularly empty the day I wandered through. Even though it was May, the winter held its grip on this town longer than normal, resulting in overcast days threatening to spill rain from the large, puffy clouds. To explore the town, I simply walked through the hotel’s parking lot and up the one road into town.
The narrow lane wound its way through charming little homes with hand painted mailboxes, through quaint inlets where fishing boats rocked in the wind-whipped waters against a backdrop of granite outcroppings. Occasionally a car would pass by, heading out-of-town and back toward the main land, but for the most part it was just me and the morning.
Even with the gray clouds hanging in the air and the fat drops of rain plunking down from the sky, the walk through Klädesholmen treated me to a tiny peek at this village and its quiet spring morning.
The result? Angsty photos that tell the story of this little town on a chilly May day.
