I work as a photographer in a local newspaper Hammerfestingen in northernmost town in the world – Hammerfest, Norway. Two weeks ago camping place on Storsvingen was on fire, so everyone rushed in that direction. Fire brigade was already there.

This is a shoot from Statoil in Molde, taken during our trip to Atlantic Ocean Road – first on The Guardian’s list of the world’s best road trips, Norwegian Construction of the Century, etc. etc. In our opinion road it’s totally overrated (try Trollstigen instead), but this view… And some more:
