Panorama across ‘Geithus’

Jeg var faktisk litt i tvil om jeg skulle bruke dette bildet! Årsaken er at mye av det nærmeste gikk tapt i konvertering til 16:9-formatet og dermed også mye av perspektivet i bildet, men samtidig følte jeg sterkt at jeg måtte beholde utsynet mot horisonten.
Dette bildet er ikke tatt fra et fly eller en fjelltopp, men fra toppen av Vikersundbakken som er verdens høyeste skiflyvningsbakke. Dette er omtrent det samme som utøvere ser før de setter utfor! Da bortsett fra snøen som mangler i dette bildet!
Actually I was in doubt whether to use this picture! The reason being that a lot of the perspective were lost in converting it into 16:9 format. And since I strongly felt the need to maintain the horizon, most of the foreground has been cut away!
This picture has not been taken from a mountain top nor a small plane, but is actually taken from the top of the largest ski jumping hill in the world:
The Vikersund Ski Jumping Hill!  This is more or less the same view that meets our ski jumpers in the moment that they start off – except for the snow that is missing in this picture! 🙂

  1. Kansje vi får snø i år i New Jersey. Men nå er det fortsatt veldig varmt: 22 grad.

  2. The perspectives are still there when you double click dear Svein and I can see from the size of homes to the mountains in the background, just how vast an area this has taken in.. Beautiful and so yes, I am pleased you decided to share it

    Bare synd det er så få konkurranser i Vikersundbakken? Det blir liksom ikke samme susen over andre hopprenn lenger !

  4. Dette likte jeg! Nå kan snøen bare komme.
