Photographing Skyrim

Although I've not played it for the past fortnight, I've been enjoying the game of Skyrim, which does a very good job of invoking a Scandinavian-style region, inhabited by various races but most aboriginally by the Nords.

It was therefore with a certain frisson that some days ago I went shopping for a camera tripod in the Norwegian city of Bodø. Bodø is the capital city of Nordland.

Oddly enough, I didn't see a single local waving a sword in my direction.
