Great injustice from a failing legal system basing judgement on an unbelievable set of lies and deceits – crushing people that has already been severely damaged by a failing health system.
That sums up my life the last four months. But there has also been rays of divine sunlight shining through. A Beautiful New Friend. Old Friends. Newborn Life.

I try to pull on all my wisdom and make sense of it all. It isn’t always easy although the philosophy is simple. Somehow I’ll get through this. The very still point in the eye of the storm lays in my mind – an eternal source for peace of mind and tranquility. A universe making it possible escaping the physical and psychological torment that life has thrown at me and my family for so many years.

And then there is photography. Even if I am quite immobilized for the time being, I have manged to capture some beautiful, dramatic and picturesque moments from the ever-changing and beautiful scenery around here. Capturing and Sharing these moments are some of the greatest joys in life right now. Unfortunately I haven’t shared this with you the past few months, but I will post them now one by one in the time to come. Not with a lot of text, just the photos. That is all the energy I have to spare for the time being.

I have also become quite popular through social media. So popular in fact, that people are lining up to buy my photos! Unbelievable, really. I am just a simple man…

I am preparing a Google+ site, but my brand new Facebook Photography Page (in English) – www.facebook.com/dohmenphoto – has already reached 1,300+ Likes… Please join!

If you bring on a smile on my face by liking, commenting and/or sharing this page, my social media pages and photos – I will be eternally grateful to you!

Thank you so much for your Kind Support & Enjoy!

First Aid Kit – Emmylou

I have totally fallen for these brilliant voices. The Swedish sisters in “First Aid Kit” Music Johanna and Klara have voices with really similar vocal harmonies, BUT the tiny little difference makes this duo MAGICAL!

Please watch this musicvideo by First Aid Kit performing their new single “Emmylou” This is the second single taken from the new First Aid Kit album, The Lion’s Roar, available on Wichita Recordings.

Update 2200 zulu time – Siv’s last flight

I made this video that shows the approximate flight path of the missing airplane “Siv” with 5 crewmembers aboard that went missing yesterday March 15. 2012.Observe the extremly jagged mountain formation. At the end of the film, I pause and give a panorama from the search area.The weather is extremely difficult in the area. High winds and snow with just a few meters visibility makes the search next to impossible. The avalanche alert is also very high.It was just reported now that an aircraft seat with fuel on has been found by mountain rescue climbers.But the search is executed with determination to find the plane and the crew. This evening the commanding general commented that what happened in the Andes when 16 passengers survived a crash and some of them managed to walk out of the mountain range after 72 days to get help is well remembered.I hope and pray that this crash also would present survivors, but the huge area the pieces from the plane was scattered over, could suggest otherwise.The film about the Andes survivors is called “Alive!” and is well worth seeing!

Blogging from 30.000 ft in the air

Although the solar activity lately makes it a risky business health-wise to fly, it’s beautiful up here. And with the airline Norwegian’s brand new Boeing 737-800 it’s even possible to connect to the Internet for free. Way to go Norwegian! And now the company has made the single biggest purchase of aircrafts in European history. It’s a very interesting company to follow!

Right now I’m crossing the strait between Norway and Denmark in the brand new machine “Anders Celsius”. Here’s a photo taken

enroute from Northern Norway earlier today.

From the skies with love!

Northern Lights – Aurora borealis – Narvik – Sverre M.B. Dohmen 01/10/2011

Obviously something went wrong with my initial link to my Northern Lights film, so here it is again via Vodpod. Enjoy!

Watch this spectacular Aurora film I’ve made!

Now blogging to you from 30,000 feet! I am writing this sitting in a brand new Norwegian Airlines Boeing 737-800 with Wifi connection!

And being at this altitude these days means getting very high doses of radiation. The sun has emitted extremely high doses of particles these last few days.

But the particle streams don’t only offer a health hazard. Towards the poles it also cause Aurora borealis. I made this film – please click here!

A will produce an HD version later on. From the sky with love!
