Swedish reflections

Many houses in Sweden are painted in a color called Falu Red. Originally the paint was a byproduct of the copper mine of the same name. The mine was already closed in the 17th century, but there was enough rocks and ore left to produce pigment for red paint up to this day. In the maze of the thousands of bays and islands along the Swedisch coast the red of the cottages and boat houses reflect in the calm water.
