Moonrise behind Uppland Museum (Upplandsmuseet), downtown Uppsala

Facebook | Lebing Gong Photography | Imagine Uppsala Project


The Upplandsmuseet is the county museum of Uppsala County in Sweden. Upplandsmuseet är länsmuseum för Uppsala län, beläget på Kvarnholmen i Fyrisån i centrala Uppsala. Museet är inrymt i Akademikvarnen från 1760-talet. The museum is located in the old water mill formerly belonging to the university, the Akademikvarnen ("Academy mill") on the Fyris River in central Uppsala. The exterior of the building was used by Ingmar Bergman for the bishop's house in the film Fanny and Alexander (1982). (


This was my 3rd try in this location. First time I got there too late, sky was heavy blue, moon was already high. The second time was foggy. But when I arrived and all set up, the fog was blown away by wind:( and the last time, moon was just rising in the beautiful twilight. White is my favorite color for a twilight shot!
