- Jeg har kjøpt meg sopelime
og skal ut i natten.
Jeg vet hvor Bloksberg er
og lander på mine skitne tær,
jeg vet hvor Bloksberg er,
det er der hvor jeg er «nær.»
Jeg skal gjøre Bloksberg levende,
ved å henge over svevende
med den sorte katten....
- Som livet går opp og ned,
få deg i kne.
Whoah! Przyszalałem! Wczoraj poleciało 1757 zdjęć dla mojej norweskiej pary z Bergen 💙 co to była za przygoda. 4 dni spędzone w Norwegii na zwiedzaniu, fotografowaniu i poznawaniu niesamowitych ludzi. Gdy zaczynałem swoją przygodę z fotografią ślubną powiedziałem sobie: „moim marzeniem jest latać po świecie i robić zdjęcia” i teraz to się w końcu stało ❤️ Tak jestem mega ciekaw co przyniosą kolejne lata!
Når de har vært under lokk
kommer de sammen frem,
umulig å skille dem.
Rast ned har din borg
av sinne,skam og sorg.
Man må bygge sten på sten,
og holde stien ren.

- I’ve heard and read through dubious sources that the Vikings believed the Northern Lights illuminating the sky were the reflections of the Valkyries’ armour as they led the warriors to Odin. As much as this fanciful imagery is poetic and exciting, I’ve not personally come across any Old Norse sources or heard of anyone who can substantiate it.
There are also some who confuse the Bifröst bridge as representative of the aurora - when in fact Snorri Sturluson spells out in the Prose Edda that Bifröst is the rainbow: “Kann vera að það kallir þú regnboga.” I’ve not come across any Old Norse literature that refers to the Northern Lights (do correct me if I’m wrong, but I’ve discussed this with others who agree) - which is somewhat strange, given Scandinavia and Iceland’s strong association with the phenomenon in modern day. I’m no scientist, but could this mean that the solar winds did not collide with the earth’s atmosphere in such a way that could create the aurora during the Viking Age?
Perhaps the Northern Lights were rarely observed by the Norse and they therefore did not play a role in the literature and mythology we have preserved. We may have lost tales of them to oral tradition and the mists of time, or perhaps they, for whatever reason, were merely not an important enough subject for discussion in the myths, much as the magnificent landscape features of Iceland such as hot springs and geysers are barely mentioned in the sagas.
Either way, I’m very glad to have seen them. Somehow they eluded me my entire year in Norway, but I captured this photo of the aurora when I was working on a remote horse farm in northern Iceland back in 2015. I hope to see them again soon - and although the Viking Age yields no magnificent legends about them, we can look to other cultures such as the Sami, or Finland’s beautiful folklore. Finnish legend tells us that the northern lights are the trail of sparks created by foxes running swiftly across the tundra. There is beauty and magic to be found everywhere - in many different traditions, and simply in observing nature itself at work.
