Test run with Hyperlapse from Lofoten. For some reason the editor killed the video quality while joining the clips (dashcam takes 5min clips), so I'll try again later, but you can enjoy those misty mountains with a bit of added grain for now..

Those last bits with the "open" tunnels were straight out of Ridge Racer, loved them.

Have some photos finished finally. Picked about 50 from over 1000, as I had to learn the hard way about how difficult it can be to take photos from a bouncy van going twice the speed limit with a maniac behind the wheel.

Excuse the silly watermark, simple theft prevention for Flickr. In non-chronological order:

50 out of 1000 seems about the right choice :)

Now THAT is a proper touring sportscar.

Ah, it's like voting really: you invite 50 thousandmillion peepz just cause you need 20 to vote for you correct right fair.

I have realized why I was sitting in a puddle of water every time it rained, the problem wasn't the lack of a roof, but the lack of a door!
Siwwy finn, where did ya expect all the air from rear wings go? :p

Anyway,
that's a good custom bodykit for a repair-on-teh-fly. Slipstream too :cool:

Respect for analogue dash :cool:


Is that a donation box, or "lost on the way here" monument?

Jennsah! <3

Since I started the thread, I suppose I should come back and do a proper photo post...

Day 1:

After meeting everyone, going to the Sportscar breakfast, and visiting Thujalvi, we went for a drive.
That is where I'll start with the pictures.

Galantti and the Swift would both suffer catastrophic failures later in the day


Some of us get sidetracked from the main group


Grilling at DaBoom's


Day 2:

Nothing unusual here


Scenic Stop


Waiting for a ferry - what would be the first of many..


That's not gone well


Day 3:

The wounded Saab


Leaving Public and BroTan's parents' cottage (minus the Saab and 1er)


Convoy!


Ristij?rvi Camping


Grilling in a glass hut with this happening behind us






Day 4:

The early group (those of us who also took the correct route, stop for lunch


And to take some photos


Koli National Park





Inari. Our overnight location.


Relaxing with friends (before being told by the owner to move out of the way)


Not a bad view, but I think we can do better...


Coming soon...Part 2!
Day 5: Roadtrip crosses the border to Norway!

If you read through the thread thinking that all these photos have too much colour, are too well focused and detailed, then I have good news.

Developed one of two rolls from the analog camera I had with me, here's a couple of snaps from it:


At Koli


Glass grilling cabin @ Ristij?rven pirtti


Dave was playing with the camera


Adrian in the spotlight, Dave's photo again


Sunset at Ristij?rven pirtti


Misrabelle and DaHitch on the lake


Public taking a photo of Eye-Q at Nordkapp


Happy DaHitch at Nordkapp


Group photo at Nordkapp (damn it, Fairlady!)


Playing with their favorite toys


Om nom nom (the spots were disturbingly red IRL :p)


Norway


More Norway


Even more Norway


Waiting for the ferry

Most of these are set to private, but you can see the whole album with this guest link: https://www.flickr.com/gp/mxm000/N8QYm2

Couple of the pictures are simply awesome, with so much feeling it cannot be copied with a photoshopped modern digital thing.

Thanks :)

B&W works better for certain shots more than others, although I can't really put my finger on it. B&W from film especially, grain either adds atmosphere or gets annoying. I think part of its appeal for me is that we had digital long enough to make film look "strange". Gives a different perspective on the same scene.

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to MXM again.

Very nice pics MXM, some close up face shot are not that pretty with that grain, but overall i like B&W more than color.

Also, if i could, i'd give extra rep for the analog touch. <3

Finished the second roll now, and it had a few more shots from the trip.


Roadtripping


The View (tm)


This was very overexposed, so it didn't turn out that great


The View (tm), again

Part 2 of my photos

Day 5 we hit Norway







Spot the Finn


Scenery wasn't bad


Important discussions


Heading for Nordkapp, kinda surreal..




DaBoom climbing things again


With special permission arranged by Adrian we drove up to the monument for photos.


Back to the visitors centre for full group shots


View from our cabin


Eye-Q and DaBoom decided to go for a swim nearby, so I tagged along to record the event (by request) for stupidity


It was quite a pretty little spot, even before sunset happened




Back at camp





More from me to come later...

I know there were others who took photos too, they're being very slack in not posting here...

Did the group shot by the random biker dude not work out? I remember it being taken twice.
