A certain time of year the sun will set at the perfect angle and illuminate the Kjerag mountain wall and the raging waterfall in luminescent orange and red, making it look like a wall of molten lava. As the light catches the water it creates a glowing, fiery phenomenon. I used various visual elements-elements of design; Line, shape, color, texture, value, form and space to create an optical illusion of the Greek god Zeus lightning bolt. Kjerag is a mountain in Forsand municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. The 3,640 ft tall mountain sits on the southern shore of the Lysefjorden.

My vision is to travel the globe on an eternal quest to capture unique moments in time, by creating imagery of our magnificent and fragile planet. Capturing the raw beauty and living energy of Mother Nature with all her natural wonders and beautiful creatures is my inspiration and what I live and crave for. Through the imagery I create I try to reach out to touch the heart and soul of my audience and to open their mind and awareness for the enchanting beauty of the natural wonders in the world that we live in. I welcome you to take part of my journey through the images I create.
