Red Bull Photography captures the adventure with a Nokia Lumia 1020 while climbing Norwegian ice cliffs

While Nokia Devices and Services is now Microsoft Mobile (Oy), the company formerly known as Nokia continues to promote and advance the cause of smartphone photography, teaming with well-known photographers and encouraging enthusiasts to take their best shots to share with the world.

This time it is Red Bull Photography climbing ice cliffs in Norway. All the video and photographs were shot using the standard setting Nokia Lumia 1020 Windows Phone and its outstanding 41-megapixel camera.

When paired with Nokia Camera, there is pretty much nothing the Lumia 1020 cannot do when it comes to taking pictures. Ray Demski captured German climber Alex Luger and his team from all angles around the ice cliffs of Norway.

The Lumia 1020 may be a smartphone built around a camera, but what a sweet camera it is. This Windows Phone, along with its Symbian based 808 PureView predecessor, remain a breed apart from other smartphones.
