Contemporary Norwegian Mountain Photography

Me, my red Peugeot and the new awe-inspiring Nikkor 500 mm f/11 ED lens for large-format camera. Here it is mounted on my 4x5" Arca-Swiss F-line camera. The tripod contraption is my own custom-made Sachtler "Pentapod". A firm foundation for the camera and a two-point support are mandatory when using such long lenses and the accompanying extreme bellow draw on a view camera. The "Pentapod" fills the bill nicely and still weighs less than 3 kg !
By the way, although the calendar said "Summer", the gale-force wind and biting cold indicated otherwise. My thick all-purpose sweater once again came to the rescue thus enabling me to get my pictures.
