Location: Kinnekulle (306 m)      by: Jan Lindgaard Rasmussen
Area: Sweden      Date: 2016-08-03, 12:45
A rather long teleview, perhaps in a kind of dull colour tone. 4 features here: documentation of long distances (boring, I know...), the Dalsland relief, and the two peninsulas of Kålland and Värmlandsnäs.

If you look at the map, you can see the two prominent peninsulas reaching out for each other. They divide the lake into two portions; the lesser western part is called Dalbosjön. It is named from the landscape of the western part of the lake, Dalsland. The names mean "the lake of the settlement in the valley/See der talsiedlung" and "land of the valley/Talsland" resp. Sorry for my shortcomings, hope you get the meaning :-)

When you look at Dalsland, you most likely notice its relative prominent structure, and so you wonder what gave its name. The rugged terrain are a number of small fjälls; in western Sweden "fjäll" is used to describe a rugged, high and hostile landscape, unlike the rest of scandinavia, where it means the part of a mountain above the timberline. Between the fjälls and the lake, however, the low landscape, Dalboslättan, is very fertile, and this part gave the landscape its name.

Heinz noted in a previous pano, that many hills didn't have name, but was merely a P. xxx m. I happen to have a detailed (1:50.000) map of Kroppefjäll, and must confirm, that only a few hills have a name. Although severel hills are above 200 m, their prominence are most likely very little, and therefore not with a proper name.

The two peninsulas, and in particular Värmlandsnäs, have a large schärengarten. Not easy to see on the pano, but actually a lot of lighthouses and seamarks are scattered throughout here. An overview on this page: http://www.fyr.org/wiki/index.php/V%C3%A4nern

Interesting on location was to follow the weather development. The two previous days we stayed in Göteborg, and wanted the best weather for this trip (appr. 2 hours i car). The days before had nice weather, but also unpredictable showers. The forecast for this day promised clear weather early in the day, but with a broad weather front coming in from the west with a prolonged period of rain in the afternoon. On the first overview pano (12:11), we are in clear sunshine, and the front seems far away. On the next pano (12:29) the weather was still nice, but it felt like the bite was somewhat gone. And on this one, it is clearly darker to the west, with only the trans-vänern locations to the north still sun bathed. An hour later in the car, the rain came pouring down...

Pano made from 70 LF pics (RAW), 300 mm handheld, f/7,1, 1/1250 sec, iso-100, developed in DPP (daylight, faithful, moderate sharpness, ALO off), stitched in PTGui pro, contrast adjustment, downscaling and sharpening in Irfanview.

I like it completly, but the points at the edge are the cherry on the cake.
It might be very rare to see a 249m hill 117km away from a point not much higher, I guess.

Unbelievable that this is a lake and not a part of the sea.

Keineswegs langweilig, sondern eine sehr interessante Fernsichtaufnahme.

So, at last...description updated, and labels after my best ability. Views exceeding 100 km are marked with red. It was difficult finding it, but at last I found a map site (www.hitta.se), where one can find names on most prominent hills and mountains just by zooming in. Thank you for the attension!

Was für ein Streifen, Jan!
