ICE FALL: Night Ice Climbing | Scandinavian Frost Giants

The Frost Giants of Norse folklore were big, cold and virtually indomitable. At night they taught the people of the North to fear, just to freeze once again the next day. In January 2013, extreme sports photographer Thomas Senf avoided for Norway with a team of fearless Mammut ice climbers. The plan was to set the expert athletes versus the nocturnal background of the legendary world of the Frost Giants using flares and spotlights. The job produced unique pictures, the likes of which the world has never seen before.
