For every adventure and sport photographer, the dream is to have a unique shot in your portfolio. After many years of climbing, ice climbing, freeriding and some other home adventures, I decided to organize an expedition to realize the shot I had in my mind for a long time – this picture.
I wanted to have a shot of the first slackline ever done on an iceberg. And there we go, me and my friends suddenly organized this expedition. We left Italy to spend 20 days in East Greenland, taking a small boat and looking for icebergs. We finally had the possibility to climb two icebergs and apart from that, to set up and walk the first highline and slackline ever done, on two different icebergs.
I chose to shoot with the best camera and lens I had in my hand in that moment; combining the colors and quality of a full frame 5D Mark III body with the infinite sharpness of a 24-70mm. The situation, the landscape, the light and the athlete did the rest!
