“Marvatten” is a picture taken early summer (in June) from our boat-platform (brygga) in Lövö – Vårdö. The name of the boat is “Ulrika” and she is a rowing-boat used by Kroll’family. In early summer, the boat is put in the water, the process consists to humidificate the wood, getting it swollen and tight enough to get a dry bottom after some days (and emptying it…). I took this picture early morning, with a Nikon 801, 25-50mm lens with most probably a Fuji Sensia 200 iso. (Daniel Frigo, photographer)
