This is a photo which is very special to me on several levels.

The person through that opening was at the time my girlfriend whom I had known for some months. Now my wife.

The river you’re looking at was at the time just some river. Now the main view from where I’m sitting right now.

The village you see there a bit hidden in the background was an unexplored place to me. Now my home.

So, this photo illustrates the starting point for the biggest change in my life. The year after this photo was taken I moved from Norway to Sweden for the sake of love. Pretty much everything which has happened after this moment I can relate back to this photo. It’s where my new life started.

Northern Lights – Vindelälven

October 9, 2015

Finally I got to see the northern lights for myself. The shifting green shapes against the dark backdrop were spectacular. I believe it was God saying “hey, look what I can do!” to us.

As a photographer I often find it hard to really experience an experience, because I’m so eager to photograph it. This was definitely the case here. Since I’ve never experienced northern lights before I had no idea how long it would last and so I was very focused on getting good photos. Next time I’ll try to remember to take a deep breath and just enjoy the sight for a moment inbetween the shooting as well.
