Matt launching towards the east by Eagles Nest
I had the opportunity to shoot a few photos of Matt and Jose when they were enjoying a few speedflying sessions with the Swing Spitfire 11 from Eagles Nest (which is located at the end of the norwegian Lysefjorden).
I will be looking to get some more photos of this fantastic flying machine in 2012, from the ground and in flight as well – so let me know if you are flying somewhere in Europe.
I finally got to fly myself this summer in Switzerland, you can check the video out here: Let the new Spitfire Speedfly adventure begin – finally got some air
I added a small sample from Trentemøllers ‘Snowflake’ – get the full song here:itunes.apple.com/dk/album/the-last-resort/id198723009

Spent quite a lot of time in this place in 2011. I tried to capture part of the unique settings that Lysebotn in Norway has to offer.
Every evening a load of base jumpers go up to jump either Smellveggen exit 1, 2, 3 or exit zero. Some days I didn’t want to join them so I stayed at the camp ground with my camera to capture some of the scenery.
Base jumping at Kjerag is unique – if you want to go there to watch or jump yourself take a look at their website www.basekjerag.com
Oh..which reminds me, I have added some similar impressions in this video – looong video he he – check it out if you like the above photos.

My fellow base jumper Chad and I were hiking up for a regular base jump, and ran into these 2 norwegian MTB enthusiasts Tom and Terje this summer at Kjerag in Norway. They we hauling their 2 Trek MTB’s up a steep steep trail to get a photo on the famous Kjerag Bolten.
Next thing I know is that they joked about how cool it would be to ride it off the mountain…
Chad: I’ll do it!
Me: I will follow you and film your pleasure ride…
Terje & Tom: Great, tomorrow it is!
Please enjoy our little adventure. And as Tom and Terjes MTB team motto states:
“Alt er mulig!” – “Everything is possible!”
PS: Yes, we recovered all pieces of the wonderful Trek MTB, and it DID receive a little beating caused by a “faster than normal” decent – sorry about that!!!
