Photographer Christoph Jorda writes on Vimeo about his last adventure on the highest standing lighthouse on earth. The final image is stunning.


I had the great honor to spent a week in the swiss alps with the Salomon 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 sea level) 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. Rider: Sebastin Scheck
