This shot was taken at 549 meters altitude at the Klovset mountain farm during yesterday's run. The snow in the background disappears go down to roughly 6-700 meters above the fjord. This shot is not representative of how it will be today.
It's now 7 a.m. and looking out into the dark night I see some fresh new snow on the ground. It's only a couple of centimeters, but depending on how precise the forecast is today there might be a chance for more snow later. If that happens I'll need to go out and take some cool shots.
I spent yesterday morning before the run with the camera, trying to take some cool shots before it got bright. This was mostly a bust, but I'll still post the two okey pictures I got from the session.
It's been a year since I last experienced lighting conditions like this, and with my old camera it seem to give some problems, especially when shooting sports. Several of the shots yesterday had too much movement in them, and they had to be scrapped for shots of me standing further back or standing still. The picture on the top is an example of that. The run shots I took in the same spot were too blurry, and didn't look good.
One solution is to wait for the sun to come out, but with these huge mountains surrounding us that might take a full month. Another solution is to upgrade my equipment to enable shots at higher ISOs. This has to be done over time though, and now most of the money saved goes straight into the Alcatraz fund.
Training wise I'm having a recovery day. Mostly because my watch told me too (62 hour recovery), and also because I had quite a lot of pain in my jaw after yesterday's run.
