pierrewikberg Did a little research before I posted another photo of a #baldeagle (saw 7 in less than a week) and found this. "I wish the bald eagle had not been chosen as the representative of our county, he is a bird of bad moral character, he does not get his living honestly. He is a rank coward. He is therefor by no means a proper emblem for the brave and honest.
The turkey is in comparison a much more respectable bird and withal a true original native of America... a bird of courage and would not hesitate to attack a grenadier of British guards, who should presume to invade his farmyard with a red coat on." - Benjamin Franklin

pierrewikberg Flashback to that one day in January when we took the detour through Midway on our way from Park City to Provo cause we figured since we say bald eagles here a few days prior there's a good chance we might see one again (actually wasn't very likely).
And about 100-150 meters from where we saw a bald eagle couple before this guy sat chillin in a tree.

pierrewikberg About a month a ago I did a lot a driving and rarely had cell service so I'm gonna post a lot of pics from that road trip in the near future.
Here's Anna enjoying one of many pineapple coconut waters from @evolutionfresh. We seriously drink these every day. I've taken a dozen back when I leave the US and Anna brought back as many as the bag would fit. We still have 5 left. They are very addictive. I wish you could buy them in Sweden. The $10+ price tag might be a little discoursing though.
Anyway... She's standing in front of the renovated part of the #laconchamotel entrance in Vegas which is now the Neon Museum.
It's designed by #paulwilliams who also made the cool looking building in the centre of LAX, among thousands of other things.

pierrewikberg Head over to @snowboardmag and watch their new clip of Jamie Lynn. It will be the best thing you'll see this month. My 15 sec edit can't do this clip any justice.
A method air is "a window into their soul" according to Jamie. Deep and true. Means I have a terrible, awkward soul though.. Thank you Snowboard Mag and @jamiemlynn for this clip. Made my day.
Big up to @jpminibike who's movie Mr Plant got the review of the decade in this clip.
Oh, my clip of Ingemar's (@gorgzilla) made the edit too.

Normal pierrewikberg
pierrewikberg @therealpeterstrom ventured out in the Hammarbybacken backcountry for some first tracks down this ledge.
Peter is one of the most motivated riders on the planet and one of the funniest ones to see ride a mountain. He has a unique way of looking at terrain.

pierrewikberg Remember kids that adding your own style into your snowboarding doesn't matter in competition. "The point of a slope style competition is to do difficult tricks".
If it wasn't official before it is now.
Don't try and have fun out there and adding personality to your riding. Just grab mute/slob and huck 3 flips like it's the try outs for the Chinese gymnastics team.
Or as a wise coach may have said: When in doubt, close your eyes, huck and mute it out.
Or was it: "Triple, triple. Sochi, Sochi"?
#stylematters just not in competition.

pierrewikberg I haven't watched anything from the X-Games but started to catch up this morning and randomly skipped to this awesome segment with @trevor.jacob
This is possibly the most awesome thing I've seen ever on a boardercross course. The total opposite of the Jacobellis fail.
Thanks for keeping snowboarding real Trevor. It was a true pleasure to stumble upon this clip this morning.
And seriously @xgames, what's up with the background music during replay? Seriously. Stop it!

pierrewikberg Photos from the December Utah-Arizona-Nevada-California road trip when I took 20 pictures / day and didn't post any because there's less cellphone service in rural America then there's internet in Australia. And that ladies and gentlemen is not much.

  •   robbiesell Bravo! 1w
  •   robbiesell @pierrewikberg, I want to invite you to join my tour for a couple days. I feel we have the same taste in adventure and photography style; so duh, let's hang. P.S. I just visited a private residence Frank Loud Wright in Wyoming yesterday, totally amazing. 1w
  •   pierrewikberg I think we'd find cool things together. I have lists of things I wanna see on your route. @robbiesell 1w
  •   iikkabackstrom That place looks amazing 1w
  •   popmag Great photos Pierre, and you're not wrong about Australian internet! 1w
  •   besscat Oh Pierre, you and your hare brained Scandinavian ideas. In Australia we know this 'internet' thing is just a passing fad and the future is in coal. 1w
  •   kengelsman Wire pass? When you got denied of The Wave... 1w

pierrewikberg Flashback from a few weeks ago when I looked at the spot where Peter Lik took "Phantom", the most expensive photo ever sold at $6,5 million.
I'm blown away someone would pay that amount for a black/white photoshopped version of a color photo. It was taken 10 meters into a canyon thousands visit everyday, as you can see by all the footprints in the sand.
#peterlik, maybe the most overpriced photographer ever? Even before this insane transaction. I actually think he bought it himself to create headlines. Nobody has been able to prove the contrary.

  •   anthonyphilleo Yup , he loves to talk down to everyone like we all owe him something 1w
  •   pierrewikberg I hate when my negative preconception of a person is correct. @anthonyphilleo 1w
  •   raganjames Not to mention his marketing has nothing to do with the so called magical locations that make him feel at home. Not to have it out with regular photography, now just hear me out. It let's him not only underestimate we the people, but the beauty of real art. He is the definition of being more than falsity of a good photographer and/or artist because he fully, senselessly at some con artist point in his life, wanted to put a price on it. Marketing genius isn't the word, from an unbiased self image at hiding the failure of truth, you have an Australian who's named Peter Lik greedily bragging about clicking the shutter button at "the summit of fine art photography." 1w
  •   ckristo Apparently it's a biz associate of Liks that buys his million dollar images to drive up "his" market. How much for your shot of antelope? Can u photoshop @eeroniemela naked in there for me? 4d
  •   pierrewikberg I suspected something like that. Lik is (I'm guessing) a narcissistic, self absorb, elitist exhibitionist who'd totally to that. @ckristo 4d
  •   pierrewikberg Eero would look good silhouetted in that light. 4d
  •   ckristo Sounds like Lik and I are similar except I trade smokes for my images 4d

pierrewikberg Sent this photo to get printed in a book from the people at www.cabinporn.com today.
Spent a fair amount of time at this place. Likely visited it for the past 4 years. It's part of 18 scenic routes in Norway with nice architectural stuff along the way. Look up #nationaltouristroutes #nasjonaleturistveger for more locations.
This shed is in #lofoten in northern Norway in a town called #grunnfør and made by @70n_arkitektur
Can't wait to see it in print. Always been a fan of the Cabin Porn website.

pierrewikberg Last winter I followed @sagekotsenburg around for the Olympic qualifying contests.
The thought of him winning the Olympics never crossed my mind. I knew he had it in him to podium but winning, nah.. I never thought it could happen.
I'll never forget that evening. I was at Baldface Lodge in Canada watching it live with my girlfriend (through Skype) and his agent Steve Ruff (through texting). It was surreal, it didn't seem real.
I talked to Ruff and Sage's dad Steve after his win and I was so happy for them. I likely cried a little just hearing his dad say how proud he was of Sage.
24 hours later I was in New York following Sage and Ruff around a surreal few days with insane media meetings. The kid I had followed around all winter was now recognized everywhere.
The spontaneous standing ovation and "USA, USA, USA" chanting by every person at the Standard Hotel Grill upon his return from the bathroom is something I'll never forget.
His life had changed overnight. He hasn't change though.
What a ride... I posted a new 7 min clip from www.twsnow.com (@twsnow) that tells this story in my profile.
Enjoy.

pierrewikberg Every time I come back to Sweden I can't help but notice things I'd never see in the US of A.
Like a baby stroller parking area piloted by at least 50% men on paternity leave aka Latte Dads.
