The shooting spot of the image is up in the mountains. When I did my recon, it was in summer, so I could get up with a little funicular. In winter time this funicular is not running. So, I had to organize a helicopter to bring us on the spot. As you can see on the image, there was a lot of snow and no clouds, therefore it was bitter cold. As the helicopter wasn’t allowed to fly after twilight, we had to walk back for 2.5 hours with snow shoes, carrying all the equipment with us. This was a real adventure!
