My girlfriend visited me last month, and with her help I had one of the greatest photoshoots ever!
After months of saying that I needed new archery pictures, I finally took matters into my own hands. I’m usually depending on others to take my pictures for me, but because of my wonky work schedule, I often wind up having my days off when my usual photographers are either at school or busy with other things. Today I did not let that stop me!
I ventured out into the freezing cold yesterday armed with my brand new camera and sword. The temperature was at least -15 degrees Celsius, but at the bottom of the valley by the river, it felt more like -20. Despite the cold, I got dressed in my thickest winter clothing and ventured out into the daylight. That’s right! We have more than one hour of daylight now!
Or midtvintersblot if you’d like. Today, on the 21st of December, my ancestors celebrated the shortest day in the year, and the longest night of the winter. Living in the north of Norway, I know too well of the dark months and what it is like to live for months with barely any daylight. And I can understand why they celebrated this day, where the sun turns and the days slowly grow longer again.
It is over a month ago, but I still felt like writing a post about this shoot to sort of kick the new blog into action!
