Photographer's Note

This is the highest point on the road to Lake Samsjøen, with an altitude close to 1000 m. The remaining road is about 4 km and we can see the lake in the background. I can tell you one thing, on a windy winter day you would not sit down here to enjoy a cup of coffee…

Some years ago this area had a quite large population of reindeer, but judged by what I see nowadays the number is considerably reduced. During my youth back in the 1970s I could observe flocks up to 50-100 reindeer gathering on small glaciers during warm summer days…


In the 1980ties they decided build a road from Singsaas to Samsjøen, to get easier access to this recreational area with cabins and weekend houses. There was already a track, but not at all suited for car traffic, at the best tractors could do the trip. The distance is 15 km through a mix of forest, bog and mountain landscapes, rising 6-700 m from the valley.

All images in this series have one thing in common: They are taken from the road, and will include the road itself or its close surroundings!
