A Mythical Creature

Alvdrottning
I met an Älvdrottning recently. You have to be careful around them as they have magical skills. They are beautiful human-like female creatures that can sometimes be seen dancing in the mist. In fact in folklore they are said to create the mist with their dance.

Love these viking festival shots, she looks magical with her headgear.

She's quite beautiful and mystical - and that's an amazing crown she's wearing!

Lovely, and I enjoyed the story. You do a great job at getting faces lit nicely in spite of being outdoors.

She has a knowing look in her eye. Better to stay on her good side.

She looks like a very sweet woman. I am not afraid of her at all.

I like the story, the costume and the Älvdrottning (I had to copy/paste this!). Her human shell is also noticeable!

Interesting bit of folklore and a pretty elf.

Nice mythical creature with a beautiful crown. I was told that we also have some Älvdrottnings here in the forests and in the mountains, but honestly I have never seen one.
