Late Summer Early Morning Magic

Late Summer Early Morning Magic – Please click the photo to see The Big Picture

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!

The Flash Bang!

One of the two biggest flashes last night.

To round of a quiet night with practically no northern lights and some editing work on the aging computer – here is one of the big flashes from last night! Glad Wenche came out in time to see this! Better than fireworks – isn’t it!

The Quick and The Slow – cranking out Northern Lights

I have a sensational old and slow computer. So cranking out Northern Lights photos is a slow and tedious process in sharp contrast to my camera, which is fast as lightning in comparison when it comes to process photos…

This is one more from yesterday in relation to my last post – see the Home-page.

Another one from the Ofoten Fjord last night.

The Thereminist and The Northern Light

On the third night in a row I went out scouting for the Northern Lights yesterday. I had good company in Danielle and Kent Robin. Liv-Bente had prepared the grounds (if you’d like me to, I’ll explain this in a later post). Just in time for the show, Wenche came along with an exchange student, Ayan from Thailand and an old friend – Rune – and a friend of his – Cathrine – from Narvik Fotoklubb – The local photo club came to scout the skies as well. There were quite a few tripods and camera at one point, but it is always nice to trade tips and tricks in the very skilled and difficult art of taking good northern lights shots.

So what about the title on this post? – you might ask… Well, when there is nobody else out there chatting along, I can actually hear music when I see the northern lights flickering and meandering across the night sky. My good friend – the brilliant singer and thereminist – Amethyste plays along with the light in my mind. She has an angelical voice. I suppose it is simply and purely a question of associations between beautiful things in my life.
