rondheim was founded as a coastal trading town in 997. Today, it is a dynamic research and

technology hub centered around the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. I took

this photo during an official visit to the city as we walked between meetings. The weather was

alternating between thick snow flurries and blasts of bright sun, which made for some crisp

light and deep colors.

In Trondheim I gave a speech to students, did a press interview, met the county mayor, met with an

organization supporting technology start-ups and toured the local brewery, which has a joint venture

with U.S.-based Brooklyn Brewery.
