I had the alarm set to 4:30am, my backpack pre packed ready to go, thermal clothes on the chair all ready so I wouldn't have to do anything when I woke up (4:30 in the morning!!).. I should mention that I haven't been hiking or done any physical activity in over 6 months.. (on a good day I reckon i could have made it to the top in 20 minutes, without to much hassle) My lungs were burning after the first steep hill, with a faint taste of blood in my mouth, at one point i had to lay down and catch my breath(yeah I was struggling, I really need to get in shape again)..The whole reason I got up so early was to get the sunrise shot Ive been wanting for a while, high up, over looking the fjord as the sunrays would peak over the mountain tops. Only one thing stood in my way (or view) a thick layer of clouds..
Although I didn't get the shot I wanted, I did get a pretty good start to my day, having my morning cup of tea on top of the mountain, Surrounded by birdsong. Im actually considering doing this more often, what do you think? Once a week i get up really early and chase the sun, or go to a place I've never explored before?.. No matter what weather..sunshine or rain..
