Gone for so long… -The torments of life
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!

A Miracle! — Celebrating 31,000 + visitors with Stetind
January 6. there had been more than 13,000 visitors to my blog since September 30. 2010.
In just three weeks the number has expanded two and a half times – to 31,648 visits as I write this..! Amazing! In just three weeks. I can hardly believe it. Talking about peak in the statistics!
So – symbolically – I decided to share with you a photo I took this summer of The National Mountain of Norway – Stetind (1,392 meters above sea level). This mountain has fascinated Norwegian and foreigners alike for centuries. And it is hard to climb. It was not until July 30. 1910 that Ferdinand Schjelderup, Carl Wilhelm Rubenson, and Alf Bonnevie Bryn finally summit Stetind (for more information, please read this fine Wikipedia article about the mountain).
So, with this photo taken July 30. 2012 I thank all my avid readers and please share this blog with your friends, if you enjoy it!
PS: almost at the bottom of the blog, there is a link called << Older Entries. I recommend you to flick back through the pages. There are lots more photos than what is presented on the first page. My favorite photo subject is Northern Lights and you’ll find several photos of this fantastic phenomenon there, and you can even follow how I progress in mastering this difficult discipline of photography. I hope you will enjoy these many stories back to September 30. 2010.
The Flash Bang!
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!
Lighthouse – Light from the North and Friends
In relation to the previous two posts…
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.
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.
Hoping for that spectacular night
One of the great joys of photography, is to flip through old shots and rediscovering details you didn’t see the first time. This shot was taken on the January 23. 2012. Tonight there is a clear and rather crisp sky (although I had been hoping for a little less humidity in the atmosphere) – so – who knows – maybe it is going to be one of those spectacular nights again..?
The Winter Creeps up on us – or should I say down
Took this photo today of the Roasme Mountain range, and winter is just 1,000 meters away from us now. Soon we’ll be engulfed by the magic of snow..!
Was on my way to the store to stock up for det weekend, when I stumbled on this beautiful cloud. So out with the camera, and as it happened, I decided to go for an HDR-photo. So this photo is a composite of 3 photos shot with different exp. comp. (-1 to +1).
Coming home from a late night meeting last night, I found the skies ablaze. And I was in a hurry with more pressing matters (hmm, is there any good reason not to look at auroras..?) So in a hurry I set up my tripod and camera. Unfortunately the tripod was a little wobbly in the snow and quite a few photos was a bit blurry, but a few turned out alright.
