The sea and the fjords used to be our main road. With everybody traveling in cars the water is now an obstacle, and in the dark winter night, the sea is a stranger. The everchanging water surface reflects any light source. Becoming the reflections of the lit civilization we’re experiencing the night in a small fishing town.
