Norwegian road @ Vikafjellet

This is taken at a mountain road in Norway called Vikafjellet (fjellovergang).


For this photo I actually made a lot of preparations. I scouted the area a couple of weeks ago, and came back yesterday with a whole lot of warm clothes, food and water. Why? There's almost no traffic, so I had to wait for ages for a car to come by. And some of them stopped and were wondering what the h*** I was doing. And that, of course, ruined the photo which meant I had to wait for another car to come by. So, after a three hour drive, and 2-3 hours of shooting I finally went home.


Fun-fact: In the summer they have an extreme sports competition in this area (Ekstremsportveka Voss), and they actually longboard down theese steep hills. Crazy people.


(and yes, I tried removing that pole on the right..)
