Photographer's Note

This shows part of Rattvik town and its 625 m long wooden jetty that leads to a little island with some trees in lake Siljan, where cruise ships pick up visitors to explore the shallow water.

More information from wikipedia:

R酹tvik lies on Lake Siljan, and had 4,588 inhabitants in 2005; it is widely known for its old tradition of folkmusic and the beauty of the surroundings close to Lake Siljan; it is included on many tours of Sweden as an example of a traditional Swedish and Scandinavian way of living.

Its culture and landscape are by some regarded as being as genuinely Swedish as it gets. For instance, R酹tvik still has its picturesque old church located by the water, where it is surrounded by old "church stables" where the church visitors used to leave their horses.
