Skarasalen above the clouds by TobiasRichter Skarasalen above the clouds by TobiasRichter
Skårasalen above the clouds

Impressive scenery with views from the summit of Skårasalen to the surrounding peaks and the cloud-covered valleys of the Sunnmøre Alps in the last sunlight.
Despite of the moderate weather forecast, the conditions at the foot of Skårasalen looked really bad on that day. Since I had been already waiting for 3 days on a weather improvement and the even worse forecast for the next days I made myself a little indecisive and not particularly confident on the climb. During the whole tour it was drizzling slightly and the visibility was below 50 meters. At the top, the fog was so strong that only the summit cross showed that I had reached the highest point. Since the tour was quite long (3h, 1100 m) I didn’t want to give up so easy and decided to wait. After about 2 hours I finally saw the first short gaps in the clouds. The first time I had the feeling of standing on a mountain top and not still waiting in the valley. At 9 o'clock p.m. (after 4 h) were almost all the clouds far below or above me and I got a fantastic 360 ° view to the sunlit peaks of the Sunnmøre Alps and the low-hanging fog. The following two hours until sunset, gave me perhaps the best conditions I could ever experience in the mountains and repressed any thought of the temperature around the freezing point or the nightly descent... At 2 o'clock a.m. I reached the valley exhausted and happy while it had already started raining again.

NORWAY 2013
My trip to Norway in 2013 led me from the Lysefjord in the south to the Sunnmøre Alps near Ålesund and finally to the islands of Lofoten and Senja in the north. During the nearly 5 weeks trip I got many good opportunities to photograph the incredible scenery in stunning light. During some hikes in lesser known area, I tried to find a few new scenes. I hope you enjoy the results!
