My Little Norway is about my big adventures in the Kingdom of the North. Welcome!
I’m L-Jay, the creator of My Little Norway. An Aussie ex-pat, I have lived in Norway for the past fifteen years – Oslo, Harstad, Tromsø, and Alta. I’m literally moving up in the world! I continue to travel all over the country, but the far north, above the Arctic circle, where I get to experience the Aurora Borealis and the Midnight Sun as part of everyday life, is my home. My favourite activities in Norway are dog sledding, picking blue berries, fatbiking in the snow, and taking photographs of Norway’s majestic landscapes. You can usually find me hanging out at a trendy cafe in Oslo, hiking one of the top peaks in the Arctic blue, or enjoying an afternoon with good food, family and friends, while fishing in one of Norway’s salmon rivers.
Early in my photography practice I quickly realised you didn’t need myriads of filters and fang-dangle lenses, flashes and reflectors, and hundreds of settings or photoshop effects to take magical photos of Norway – all you need is nature. It has always been my goal to give you honest and simple photography so you can experience Norway in its raw beauty. Most of the photos on this blog have been taken by yours truly. A few have been given to me, where credited, and some are from free-use sites. All content on this site is copyright protected.
This site started out as a photography blog, which then expanded to writings and videos as readers became curious about life in Norway. I produce original content from my personal experiences, knowledge, readings and research. At the moment, the site is transitioning to accommodate a new theme. As such, most of the content has been unpublished to be upgraded to the new format.
As I’m a small, part-time blogger, it is best to connect with me through social media – Facebook.
