The small mountain Tekslehogget, rises 721 meter above sea level. While not a big mountain, it has a shape that is easy to recognise from a long distance. The west side of the mountain, as I have photographed in this project, is very steep. Old tales indicate that trolls lived here.

I find this small mountain very visually fascinating, and have photographed it on many occasions.

Tekslehogget itself is frequently visited by hikers, but the surrounding area where I make my images is for the most part void of other people. I have yet to meet another person on my hiking in this area, and I have not taken my last photograph of Tekslehogget. So I will continue to hike in this area and photograph more, and change this collection as my vision of Tekslehogget is developing.

So, here is the different locations I have used to photograph Tekslehogget. They are presented in sort of random order.

Map

Ths is a google map of the places where I have found the best locations to photograph the west side of mountain. I have also included some location to where it’s possible to park a car and start the hike to a location.

Enjoy your hikes!
