I took some pictures to show some of the magic that can be experienced when you go through the Nordic landscape on an extremely cold winter night. With a small amount of light, from a torch or the moon, everythink sparkle like millions of diamonds. When I looked at the pictures on my computer, much of the adventure was gone. Maybe bcause I don’t have a filter on my camera that can enhance the sparkle, to transform it to stars. But at the same time to work with these dark pictures was kind of appropriate today. Because there have been a lot of dark news lately. More than 230 dead in a brazilian nightclub fire, more than 70 people killed after furious clashes with police in Egypt, and four norwegians are among the 38 civilians beeing killed in the islamist attack in Algeria, one is still missing. I aslo read that at least 19 women were sexually assaulted in and around Tahrir Square in Cairo this weekend according to an activist group. Several of them stripped and raped, publicly. So what have my pictures to about all this, and there is of course also other sad stories from around the world. Well, they depict my mood, unintentionally.
I need one picture to show that there is hope also in dark nights. By the way, the other pictures are not B&W….
