This year Land Rover commissioned Jonas Bendiksen to shoot Ultimate Vistas, a photographic series of landscapes ranging from urban cityscapes to more remote locations. To launch the project, Bendiksen travelled across Norway capturing the dramatic scenery of his home country. Beginning in the distinctly modern urban environment of Oslo with its striking architecture, Bendiksen and his crew then travelled northwest through the Dovre mountains, via the epic switchback roads of Trollstigen, and on to the snow-covered plateaus and vast fjords of Geiranger as well as the Art Nouveau-inspired town of Ålesund.

Bendiksen speaks about taking the perfect landscape photograph in this video.
