Geir Jenssen

Geir Jenssen is a renowned ambient music artist (I'm a huge fan) who's also an avid mountain climber. New to his website is a large and impressive collection of mountaineering photos taken in and around the Tromso area of Norway, where he resides.

His music - he records under the name "Biosphere" - reflects the isolated environment he calls home and comes highly recommended by yours truly. Here's the Biosphere Wikipedia entry.

Without question, his masterpiece is the mysterious, icy and graceful album "Substrata", which I'm listening to as I type this.
