My name is George Hieron and I am primarily a landscape photographer from the UK, previously based in Norway. I have a passion for shooting Nordic landscapes and scenery, and have made this my primary photographic ambition, under the title of Nordfjall. I am a student of Viking History and Norwegian, Finnish, and Old Norse languages, and I feel this helps me connect with and understand Nordic landscapes as a photographic subject.
I like to produce dramatic, striking and images, with a generally wide scope or field of view, and I like to make use of, but am not limited to, HDR photography. Mountains, forests, rivers, clouds, auroras and stars are some of my favourite things to shoot.
I currently shoot with a Canon EOS 600D with a Samyang 14mm f/2.8 and the stock 18-55mm lens.

Here is a link to my Lensblr member profile!
I highly recommend that you follow Lensblr, they promote a very diverse range of photography and photographers, and they deserve all the support they can get for the brilliant work they do. You will also find and support many other fantastic photographers in the process!

Thank you for answering my last question! :) Can you speak norwegian? Do you need this there, or is it also enough to speak english? I want to go there some day. But first just for holiday :D

No problem at all!

I can speak Norwegian, because I study it at university, along with Viking History and the Old Norse language, and also some Finnish language.

However, you will be absolutely fine using English in Norway. Nordic people speak English very well, I believe it is taught in schools from the time they are around 7 years old. Only very old Nordic people will have no knowledge of English whatsoever now, and the Nordic languages are not widely spoken, so communicating with foreigners in English is something they are used to.

They will definitely appreciate it if you attempt to speak their language though, so maybe take a phrasebook and give it a try!

Congrats!! How did you become part of the network?

Thank you! I was approached by one of the existing members, who asked if I would like to join, so of course I said yes!

well done :D

Thanks! :)


hippyhummel asked:

I really like your photos! They make me feel like going to norway and never come back... Why do you like this country so much? I wonder why don't you take pic's from UK? :)

Thank you very much! I do of course have some pictures of the UK, but Nordic landscapes is my passion. I have been interested in Nordic history, languages, and culture since I was very young, and have always had a love for dramatic scenery, such as mountains, fjords, heavy snow and especially the Aurora Borealis.

I’m from the South of the UK, and we don’t have a whole lot of that down there, so it’s something I always wanted to experience first hand. I feel that there is often a deep sense of mystery and melancholy in the Nordic lands, which is something I enjoy expressing in my work. I like making my images very dramatic, and I think the Nordic countries suit this kind of mood.

This was a good question, thank you!


I am now a member of the Animal & Nature Network!

The network permanently features some of the best animal and nature blogs on Tumblr, and I am very proud to be a part of it.

Here is a link to the network; I highly recommend you check it out and give some of them a follow! I added a link to my blog itself as well.

Thanks to everyone for the continued support, I’m just an enthusiast who is happy his work is well-received.
