A photo of a lifetime from our elopement to Norway many years ago. This is pulpit’s rock (Preikestolen), over 600m above the Lysefjord.
We actually camped through a rainstorm on this rock the night before, and were in the midst of taking our own wedding photos with the use of a remote attached to our camera. Out of the rocks and brush came an early morning hiker, who volunteered to scramble up to help get a photo of the amazing scenery seen here. A 5 minute encounter, we never got his name or contact information - he just took the photos, handed back our camera, and carried on with his hike. We wished him well.
I treasure this photo, not just because of what it represents in my relationship to my partner, but because it shows how we are all one community bound together by our love of trails, mountains, water, and the outdoors.
