Indal, Sweden
This is one of my favorite pictures that was taken at the Gudmundstjärn in Indal, Sweden.
Gudmundstjärn was one of the last real self-supporting farms in Sweden where almost everything a humanbeing needs to survive, was produced by the family itself. For 165 years people lived here with 6 kilometers of wayless country to the nearest village. Five generations in a direct line lived here, and for every generation a number of houses for different purposes were built. In the beginning of our century there were about 30 buildings at the farm. Gudmundstjärn got its name from the tarn nearby where a farmer called Gudmund Pärsson drowned together with his maid one day in 1694.
