Who knew Jagex could create such a beautiful place.
This photo is taken in Trollheimen. I know it sounds like Troll hymen, but bear with me. It translates into Troll Home or Home of Trolls and rightfully so - it is a big national park, in the middle of Norway and has a lot of mountains rising tall, valleys, waterfalls, and lakes. Unlike places such as Lofoten which are more known and popular, Trollheimen is harder to reach and stay in as it is a broader and wilder area. In this location I stayed in a nearby cabin with some friends. We went skiing as it is the only way you can reach this location during winter from a parking space around 12 kms away, approximately.
Anyway, I took the photo during an unexpected sunset, when the whole evening was grey and dull, but during the last moments before the sun set there was an opening in the sky, and everything suddenly just bloomed. Couldn't believe my eyes and through sheer enthusiasm I was sliding across this ice (had to throw off my skis, they obviously don't handle ice well) looking for a fitting foreground. Luckily I made it in time, as the sunset vanished after ten minutes or so.
Technical info: 28mm, ƒ/16, 1s, ISO 125. Canon 5D Mark II, on a tripod. I think that is about it, but just ask if you have any questions or are wondering about the area!

Ahhhh my homeland... Goodness I do Love Norway. Something about it has such a mystical feel. There are endless places there that evoke such a deep, primal feeling; I just can't put my finger on what it is exactly. On my last visit, I got to spend two months with my family. Most of the time was in Bergen, but the first 4 nights we went and stayed with some friends in Tromsø. It was in the beginning of January (the day we flew in was the first day that the sun peeked over the mountains), and the term that kept coming to mind was "Winter Wonderland". On the second night, we witnessed the Aurora Borealis; words will never come close to explaining the experience. Watching the purple, white, and green dancing across the sky was the most spiritual event of my life. Its funny, because locals can be very "meh" about it, but I tell anyone who will listen: if there is one thing I would recommend someone to do in their life, if they are able to, is to go see the northern lights. This is such an amazing picture!!!
Fucking Nords ripping off Runescape
I've seen the Troll Hunter documentary about this place.
