Yggdrasil (from Old Norse Yggdrasill) is an immense mythical tree that plays a central role in Norse cosmology, where it connects the Nine Worlds.
Yggdrasil is an immense ash tree that is center to the cosmos and considered very holy. The gods go to Yggdrasil daily to assemble at their things, traditional governing assemblies.
The branches of Yggdrasil extend far into the heavens, and the tree is supported by three roots that extend far away into other locations; one to the well Urðarbrunnr in the heavens, one to the spring Hvergelmir, and another to the well Mímisbrunnr. Creatures live within Yggdrasil, including the dragon Níðhöggr, an unnamed eagle, and the stags Dainn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr, and Duraþrór.
This week, we asked our Photographers to go out, for their final week, and snap a photo of “Yggdrasil”, a tree fit for the Gods. Here are their amazing shots for our final week.
This week, we also have a guest judge – Ni’ko Shae!
The judges have until Tuesday 10pm to get their scores and critiques in!
