    O man! This was one of the most inspiring videos I’ve ever watched on YT! Awesome

  7. Ollie Broadie

    Stunning images and awesome video. I feel like I was there with you.

    I am wanting to get into taking more photos when I am out hiking but I feel I have outgrown my point and shoot. I looked up the camera you used and definitely not able to spend 2,000. What would you recommend for a starting out camera that can handle hiking and backpacking.

    Is that bag called the Tardis?

  10. Gordon MacPherson

    Absolutely stunning photography and an awesome place to shoot! What is the music that was playing when you showed the cloud inversions please? Cheers! Gordon 🙂

    Super inspiring video with an awesome photo as a result. I’ve just started backpacking from my base in Bergen in what is a somewhat similar landscape. My dream is to be able to take similar photos to yours in this video, with a tent lit up from the inside in early morning or late evening, maybe even at night, with the city, fjords, and mountains in the background. My question to you is this. What beginner setup of camera and lens could help me achieve this? I have no knowledge, no equipment and about 1000-1200 gbp budget. Buying used would maybe help me out, so last year’s popular model slightly over budget might be an option. I’ve seen people recommend the Olympus E-M5 Mark II. I love the waterproofing (Bergen is known for a lot of bad weather), size and it seems to get good reviews on the forums. But, I’m worried about its low light capabilities. The camera would be used primarily while backpacking shorter and longer trips, so size and weight is an issue. Please help a neophyte wondering in to a new and complex world. Best whishes from Bergen. Ps. if my budget is to small, what level do I need to ball at to be able to achieve the amateur version of your photo in this video? Best wishes from Bergen, Norway.

    Everyone has a preference but I would have taken 16-35 2.8 and 24-70 2.8 lenses. How many photos did you take above 150mm?

  17. Eli Rios

    Watch this video and now getting my camping gear out. Thanks for the inspiration/motivation.

  18. Liam Reid

    Gorgeous! I wish I could take photos like that.

  19. Le Song Champion

    Can you come to Portland, Oregon go photographing with me?

  20. lenn zeppelin

    Hi thomas, this might be an obivous question to some, but I am still learning to capture landscapes properly. You said you use filters on your lens for the photo at 10:42, what kind of filters are they and what do they do? do they make the mountains and clouds look darker? Thank you!

  21. G Motorsport & Landscapes

    I thought you couldn’t just pitch up and wild camp in the lakes. If that’s allowed, then I might well give it a go!

  22. Rick PETERSON

    One of my favorite videos! 👍👍

  23. Matthew Smith

    Hold on that’s the Flickr picture thingy

  24. Andrew miller

    Awesome !! Luv ur videos and always get great tips from them.. Im off to patagonia in a few weeks to hopefully put into practice what I’ve pick up from watching ur adventures.. Rgds Andrew

    hey thomas, just have to say i love this video, by far my fave of yours, must have watched it about 50 times this year 😛
    i went wild camping twice last year and loved every minute of it, starting this year off with place fell.
    so thank you, keep up the good work.

  26. Baz Barrington

    Beautiful images and excellent video, but why didn’t you capture any images of the night sky? I would imagine the remote area would be ideal for astrophotography, particularly given your photographic skills..

  27. Craig Houdeshell

    Appreciate the video. WHat is the padded box the camera gear is in? I don’t see it on the list above. Thanks.
