This is a photograph of sunset I took in Sweden – not Switzerland. Most of the time when talking to people when travelling they mix up Sweden and Switzerland. Let me quick explain in this post how to distinguish between Sweden and Switzerland.
The flag is almost the same, both have a cross in the flag. Switzerland has a white cross with a red background. Sweden has blue background with crossed out yellow color.
Whenever there are a lot of people around a lake, most probably you are in Switzerland. Sweden is 10 time bigger than Switzerland and has only 2 million more inhabitants – and way more lakes.
Sweden is part of the EU but does not accept the EUR. Switzerland is not part of the EU but accepts the EUR.
Switzerland is landlocked, so whenever you see the ocean, you might be in Sweden. Switzerland is the country that stands for watches and cheese and not Sweden.
I hope I gave you enough facts for the future to know the difference between Switzerland and Sweden.
I always kept saying that you should never center the horizon – but what do you want to do if it works. All those tips and tricks I am giving away are not meant to be a given thing. It is just some things I think about when being out there taking photographs. Sometimes you walk up to a beautiful location where some of the rules I or someone else wrote, simply don’t work. With my blog, I am trying to give you ideas what to do, ideas to improve your photos, ideas that might be of interest to you. All my writings is about you and not about me.
Try out what I am writing, if it works for you I am happy. If it does not work for you I am happy too because I know you are on my blog and one day, there might be a tip that you can use for your own stunning photographs.
