Photographer's Note

The three swords in Hafrsfjord.
This is a monument in memory of the battle that served to shape Norway into ONE kingdom.
This monument was made by Fritz Røed in 1983 to commemorate the battle of Hafrsfjord that took place in 872 AD.

I took this photo one evening in September, I was driving home from my sword practice when I kind of thought it would be a good idea to get a photo of this monument.
Originally the photo was taken in low light conditions, but I decided to alter the levels through photo shop to try to achieve a better and more impressive effect.

I know fully well that this monument represents swords, but they are swords for freedowm and peace.
Before the gathering of Norway, Norway was almost constantly at some sort of war, the petty kingdoms would fight each other for new terrain/ natural resource and so on.
The gathering of the kingdom proved the coming of a time of peace and understanding.
