Travelling lighter - skiing and photography in Rondane
Posted on 11th May, 2014
I spent a wonderful week (with my husband) in Rondane National Park in March this year. Having visited five years earlier, we knew we had some spectacular scenery coming our way, although we were staying in another part of the park this time. The forecast looked promising and I was excited to be getting a chance for some proper winter photography - winter having largely eluded us in the UK this year. Remembering what hard work it had been lugging a large dSLR system around on my previous Nordic skiing trip, I decided this time to travel light, carrying just a small Fuji compact camera system in my F-Stop Kenti backpack. In terms of clothing, I found my Paramo Vista jacket and Velez Adventure trousers were perfect - waterproof, light-weight and a reasonably close fit - ideal for skiing. When really cold, I had my lovely new Jottnar down jacket I won just a few weeks before we left. A full write-up of my trip can be found on the superb online photography magazine On Landscape. I’m also including below a few more photographs that I did not include in the article itself - I hope you enjoy them and let me know if you have any questions.
