Learn story behind Christoph Jorda’s shot of a skier tapping the highest standing lighthouse in the world:

“I had the great honor to spent a week in the swiss alps with the Salmon Freeski Team Germany. Unfortunately the weather was really bad and the avalanche risk to high. So I had to come up with an idea and solve this problem with creativity. Sometimes a disadvantage is a benefit. The highest standing lighthouse on earth (2046m above sealevel) stands at the Oberalppass in Switzerland. This lighthouse stands at the spring of the river Rhein. The counterpart of it stands in Holland where the Rhein floats into the sea. It took 6 people the whole day to build a jump, landing and inrun for this photo. I had 3 Profoto B1 flasheads with me. 2 inside of the LH and one in the back of it. The jump was really dangerous – the strong wind and bad visibility.” – Christoph Jorda
