Photographer's Note

A sneak-peak into the virgin forest, where logging never took place and the trees die a natural death! I guess this is the closest we come to rain forest…

And this is the home of the trolls according to old tales, as trolls are said to dwell in isolated mountains and old forests where they live in caves, sometimes several of them together in family relations.

In Scandinavian folklore, trolls are defined as a particular type of being, generally held to be larger than humans and notably ugly looking. Numerous tales about trolls are recorded, in which they are frequently described as being extremely old, very strong, but slow and rather dimwitted.

One particular characteristic of trolls is they will turn to stone by exposure to sunlight, that is why they prefer dark and shady places. This reminds us about something also known from the vampire tales.

So if you dare you may follow this small rivier winding into the Kingdom of Trolls..!
