I have added a new gallery of from the Autumn of 2013.

I’m a little late with this one! Well actually, I originally wasn’t going to add it at all, as I didn’t really think I had enough images and variety. But looking at the images now, 6 months later, it doesn’t seem that bad, so here you go!
Some of you might remember that I was supposed to go hiking in Sweden’s Sarek national park in mid September last year. Unfortunately, one day into the hike, I dropped my camera into a lake. This left me camera-less for the next two weeks, eating up the precious few days I had in the north. By the time I had camera back in my hands I only had 6 days left on Lofoten. Luckily, for some strange reason, the weather gods must have felt sorry for me, and once I had a new camera, I was provided with 4 days of brilliant weather. I didn’t let this go to waste and hiked up 4 mountains in those 4 days: Grytdalstind, Reinebringen (camped overnight), Holandsmelen, and Kroktind. But having so little time to photograph, I wasn’t really able to achieve the variety of images I’m used to providing. But some of the mountain views are quite nice, so I still though I’d share them, even if it’s sort of only a half-gallery in my opinion…
