Photo: Camping on the summit of Storskiva, Moskenesøy, Lofoten Islands, Norway. July 22, 2017. 23:57
After 239 previous Friday photo posts, I can’t always remember what I have written previously, so perhaps this might be a bit of a repetition, or maybe something new.
I like to camp on the summit of mountains because I know that I’m a bit lazy. When I tell this to others, they say sleeping on mountains is more work than just hiking. But to me, its not.
I want to get the best light when on my mountain trips. But I also like my sleep. So when camping on summits, while maybe a bit more work to get there, once at the top, life just becomes a waiting game. I can sit around, drink a bit of whisky, eat a good meal. And then, if the light comes, I’m already there! None of this hiking down in the dark crap, or getting up 5 hours before sunrise.
I can sit around and be lazy, then shoot sunset. Wake up, roll out of the tent, and shoot sunrise. Simple! To me, it makes perfect sense. Two photo possibilities for the effort of one.
