This weeks challenge from PhotoFriday is “Fear”. Now I’m not that good at taking photos of people being afraid, or taking photos of spontaneous scary situations, so the best I could manage was to go out to the Alexander Kielland monument. The Alexander Kielland disaster was the worst disaster in Norwegian oil history, killing 123 people. The monument is called “Broken Chain” and really expresses the fear and sadness that the families of the victims must have felt at that time. kielland38 [1024x768]

Unfortunately I wasn’t the only photographer out there tonight, as the sky was spectacular, however, I’m pleased with this exposure.
