Norway's Eurovision Winner Alexander Rybak takes a lovely photo

He may be "in love with a fairy tale" but via the live blog on this evening, I learned that Alexander Rybak has had some lovely photos of himself taken...

and the best photo of any Eurovision Song Contest winner EVER!!!:

image shows three people with a lake and waterski-trails photoshopped into the background, while they're sitting on brightly neon coloured plastic chairs.

If you haven't seen the song already - well, it's not bad... here it is:

The lyrics are:

Years ago when I was younger, I kinda liked a girl I knew.
She was mine, and we were sweethearts, That was then, but then it's true

I'm in love with a fairytale, Even though it hurts.
Cause I don't care if I lose my mind; I'm already cursed

Every day we started fighting, Every night we fell in love.
No one else could make me sadder, But no one else could lift me high above

I don't know what I was doing, but suddenly we fell apart.
Nowadays I cannot find her. But when I do well get a brand new start

I'm in love with a fairytale, even though it hurts.
Cause I don't care if I lose my mind; I'm already cursed
