Winter Wonderland

Published January 29th, 2014

Varingskollen, Nittedal:

After a few days with flu, I was finally fit enough to take a afternoon hike this Sunday to enjoy the snow that has fallen over the backcountry of Oslo the last week. I enjoy being alone in the woods, walking off track, listening to the quietness of nature and breathing the fresh air.

The downside of Photography in the City

Published January 6th, 2014

Photography in the City has it's downsides. Often one has to seek places you normally never would have set foot to get the best angles. Like when I took this photo along the dodgy area along Akerselva (river) in Oslo. When I sat down in my car after the shoot, the police came running with flash lights saying that my behaviour had been suspecious. They believed I tried to steel my own car, and accused me for drinking. They checked my driver licence, the car, their register, and made me take a alco-test that obviously showed Zero. They wanted to know where I had been, and had no understanding of my need to take any photos in this area. I had to sit still and was not allowed to move my hands off the steering wheel, while they did their long but resultless background check. I assume that if I continue with urban photography it will only be a matter of time before they stop me again. I guess I better return to photography in the mountains.

Oslo after dark

Published December 11th, 2013

The months of November and December is the dark time of year. There is little time to enjoy outdoor and travel photography, and it get's dark way to early. It's dark when I get up in the morning, and it's dark when I get home from work. Instead of doing nothing I have adapted to the situation. I have taken the camera with me around Oslo after dark. I haven't shot the typical tourist attractions, but been trying to find the beauty in scenaries one don't think about in the daily life.

Svalbard Snowmobile Tour

Published May 2nd, 2013

In the Artics of Svalbard. From Longyarbyen through Russian Barentsburg to Outpost Isfjord Radio and over the glaciers of Spitsbergen, These are the photos I captured.

Riding more than 100 kilometres both ways we got to experience great artic wildnerness.

Svalbard is a group of Artic Islands south no more than 10 degrees of the North Pole. The islands are a part of the Norwegian Kingdom, but countries that have signed the Svalbard agreement can operate on the islands in same way as Norway. Barentsburg is an example. Visiting the Russian mining community is like going to any Russian town, and very different from the Norwegian town, Longyarbyen. In winter the only way to go between the two towns in reasonable time is by snowmobile. Further most out on the Nordenskiold peninsula lies the outpost Isfjord Radio on Kapp Linnè. The station was established in 1933. Today the station is automated, and the buildings used as a hotel. It's often refered to as a luxury hotel. Yet I have been in a ...

Rwenzori - The Mountains of the Moon

Published April 18th, 2013

I am sharing some of my photos from the Rwenzori mountains in Uganda.

In year 200 a. c., long before any known European had set foot in deep Africa, the Greek Geographer Ptolemaios claimed that the Great Nile had it's source from some big mountains he called "Mountains of the moon." Many hundred years later it was confirmed that he was actually right, as the mountains do supply water to Victoria lake where the Nile runs from.

In these mountains no less than six of Africas ten highest mountains are located.

We trekked for 8 days long trek through the great "Mountains of the Moon" in Uganda.They are perhaps the most scenic mountains and with out doubt the biggest range in Africa. From the deep jungle, over to the summit of the "Rainmaker" Mount Speke, Africa's 4th highest mountain, over Arica's largest glacier and to the summit of Uganda and Congo's highest mountain, the Margerhita Peak at Mount Stanley that is Africa's third highest mountain. This is a hard trek that was much more ch ...
