Photographer's Note

This statue is found at Frognerseteren in Oslo. The cross country skier is Johan Grøttumsbråten, a local hero.

The picture was taken at around 12.30, it is getting dark already!

The altitude at Frognerseteren is 435 meters and here was plenty of snow and a lot of people had brought their skis. Snow is supposed to be a valuable asset when skiing, even if you actually can manage without snow.

I understand that central Europe is having very cold weather now and snow even in Provence. Up here in Gothenburg we have today plus 6 degrees and no snow!

I think the statue is
exactly here but unfortunately not visible behind the tree.
