Christer Dahlin is pushing the limits of his Nikon D2X in Sylarna, northern Sweden.

The story behind the photo is that we were shooting a team doing avalanche training, in quite hard wind. It is not as cold as it looks, just below 0C but very windy and the wind blew moist snow around that stuck everywhere. The camera survived without problems, after having been wiped off when we came in, then slowly thawed in a sleeping bag.
