Simon missed his line a bit.. he was aiming for the snowfield to the left.
Power turn !
More of the same here ! sun and powder ! battling a touch of cold at the moment,but when its this good i just have to get out there ! not too often we get this stable conditions. most people are crammed together at the resorts but fresh untracked lines awaits those who knows where to go ;)
Its all about earning your turns ;) 2 hours hike to the summit
This is the top part of the face. we decented through the small colour in the upper right part of the picture
Montain safety. Simon is checking the snowpack.
Caroline is in there somewhere ! actually this place has a bit of magic. it was windy for days from several directions. this usually fucks up the snowpack immideately,but here it was like it had been now wind for days ?
Soft landing !
Beautiful flank,soft afternoon light and a classy turn !
In the mountains at the moment. came up here a bit later than planned due to car problems,so i missed a couple of classic days. still good here though and its gonna be more of the same tomorrow ! luckily us Haukeli Powder Hookers have this place pretty dialled in now !
This wave is a A- Frame. absolutely one of the best waves around here !
-3 degrees. 20-30 knots of wind...
This guy suddenly appeared out of the heavy snowdrift.
I have seen this sight before. at Maui North shore ;)
Punchy swell and heavy offshore wind today ! we just had about 20 inches of fresh snow here and since its only flat fields around here the strong winds caused some heavy snowdrift ! the blurry images is actually because of that. i think visibilty where i was shooting went down to about 30 yards in periods.. I stayed ashore today. covered in more or less all the winter clothing i have ;)
My house for the weekend. cool but cold building ;)
Its kind of an mountain hostel. staying is super cheap but anyone can show up and stay as well (several bunks) these friendly people just needed to borrow the kitchen, and we did some tour planning.
Unreal sunset on Saturday ! wood fired bathub and sauna at Haukeliseter !
The next world champ ? The resort on saturday. Sun and powder. the way it should be.
Conditions on Sunday wasnt that good. tracked snow and flat light. hiked a peak to get a untracked line. the board im carrying is a K2 Gyrator. a board with rocker (prebent like a surfboard) worked very well in powder !
Some of the shows i have photographed at Folken lately. I know that i might publish too much concert photos but its cool for me to scroll back in the blogs archive once in a while to see what i have been up to with camera.
Plenty of surf these days so there probably wont be long before there some surfphotos to post !
had a nice paddlesurf session at Sele today. uncrowded and glassy smallish waves.
Top three photos are from today. not super big waves. not enough light for my 300mm F4 so i took out my new 17-50 2.8 zoom.
The B/W photos below are from the session on the 17.november. the ugly conversion from color kind of exspresses the feel of the conditions !
Had a short session after work today. Windsurfing here is a challenge now. shifting forecasts,not a lot of daylight after work,gloves,underarm cramping up and cold and rough seas.. conditions are good though ! tomorrow might be interresting close to 21 feet swell at 10 sec ! gonna check out a new spot,well at least new for those conditions !
