Werner Bollmann – Harsh Conditions

Werner Bollmann – Harsh Conditions

Winter conditions in northern Norway can be very hard. Strong winds occur all of a sudden, often followed by heavy snowfall. Situations like that offer great photographic opportunities although it’s not easy to create a proper composition when your equipment is nearly blown away. Initially I had chosen a longer exposure time, thinking that this would support the scenery. But then I recognized on the display that the drifting snow was nearly invisible. I managed to do some more images with a shorter shutter speed, but then the storm stopped as abruptly as it had started. As always: Great situations in nature don’t last too long.
