"A man is a very small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders." -Lord Dunzany

Snow is the most silent thing in the World – Insomnia

Suffering from insomnia is no fun – I can vouch for that. But being as it is – sometimes I throw my tiredness overboard deep in the darkest hours of night and shoot just a few pictures. So I did this night as well.

There’s been quite a snowfall these past few hours reaching half a meter. Snow dampens the sounds and a snow filled night like this magical night in an industrial city in Northern-Norway was no different. I hope I have been able to convey this silence through these images:

Narvik City laying silently under a thick carpet of snow

The airport beacon on the breakwater silently shines it's light on the water of The Ofoten Fjord

Even the Iron Ore Loader seems quiet over the dampening carpet of snow that covers the landscape

Silence down the street. The City Council having gamled away all our money - is forced to shut off the streetlights at night to save money.

A long exposure from the waterfront in the city. The yellow blobs that stretches out horizontally, is just the snowplow's yellow, blinking warning light as it thunders into the Fagernes Tunnel

The City is all packed into a silencing, thick carpet of snow by the silent fjord
