Traces of Human Activity

There is a common misconception among us Norwegians that we have large, pristine expanses of nature. Areas free from, and far from, traces of human activity. But studies show that these areas are shrinking. Traces of human activity are ever more present. Cabins are built closer and closer to alpine regions putting pressure on the wildlife and the ecosystem. Power lines and roads cut through the landscape.

Sometimes a subject may make a stronger impression if you avoid looking directly at the subject. By focusing on the impression the subject makes, for example its shadow as in this image, or its silhouette, some details may become obscured and other details may become more pronounced. And you may see a side of the subject you have not payed much attention to.
