A hiking trip to the true spirit of the mountain world in a less travelled area of Northern Norway: Welcome to Senja. The weather in Norway can always change quickly, especially in the mountains. Sometimes you just have 5 minutes of light, then rain showers and clouds are passing like trains and suddenly the sun comes out and shows us beautiful rainbows and incredible colours up in the sky.
It was quite painful to get up for sunrise at 2 am in the morning after just two hours of sleep in a tent and then hike to the summit. It's the ultimate challenge for every landscape photographer: You should give it a try - even if chances are low, there's still hope for a tiny gap in the clouds that will reward you with the most fantastic light. These moments let you forget all your efforts.
I'm very happy to share a new video of my series "The Beauty of", this time in beautiful Senja together with some talented photographers from all over the world. Special thanks to my friends Max Rive Photography and Daniel Kordan, it's always a pleasure working together with you guys.
