Check out these Instagram shots of Oslo in the fog

Oslo has seen a host of foggy mornings lately. The capital’s trigger-happy photographers have not let that opportunity slip by.

Over the last few weeks, Oslo has on a regular basis found itself enveloped in fog in the early hours of the day, resulting in a slew of gorgeous shots from around the city.

One of the people who’ve felt inspired by this turn in weather is Kjersti Lier, a hobby photographer whose day job is being a sales secretary for an office supply company.

Lier, originally from Lierfoss, moved to Oslo in 2001 and has been snapping images of the capital for almost as long as she’s lived here.

“There are many places to explore, even though I’ve been at it for a while. My pictures are often a light mix of the city and nature, anything that catches my eye. What I like most is to shoot landscapes and forests, and I am also very into old bikes.”

When the fog came sailing in, Lier stepped right on up to the plate.

“It creates this mysterious atmosphere. Having a shroud of mist across the city gives it a completely different look.”

Lier lives in a fourth floor apartment in the Sinsen neighbourhood, with a clear view of the Oslofjord from her balcony.

“There’s been an extreme amount of morning fog both in January and February, every day as I’ve been getting up. Some days I haven’t been able to spot the fjord at all, and the buildings down there all sink into the mist.”

Of the foggy images she’s happiest with, one features the Holmenkollen subway stop.

“For me, this is all about the mood and the colours, and everything just vanishing. You can only imagine what’s inside that fog, what you can’t see.”

Another highlight for Lier is this one, from the roof of the Oslo Opera House.

“Here, I like the reflection in the image, and thinking about what that lady might be thinking.”

Her favourite, however, is this image of a woman walking through the fog past her on a path leading down to – again – the Holmenkollen subway stop, way up above the city centre.

“I really dig the atmosphere in this one. She’s completely covered in fog, while giving us a good sense of scale for how tall that tree is. I had this idea that I might get a good shot of all of Oslo shrouded in mist, but with the sun shining down on Holmenkollen. When I arrived, the fog was thick as porridge, as it often is up there. I stuck around taking pictures of a tree, waiting for someone to come along. And not much time passed before she arrived.”
