Ellie Goulding’s Lucky Escape In Norway!

It’s often said that photographers will always go the extra mile to get the picture they want but a few weeks ago while accompanying Ellie Goulding on her current European tour in support of last year’s Delirium album, twenty-three year old British photographer Conor McDonnell got a shot he was not expecting, as he revealed on Instagram:

‘So me and @elliegoudling weren’t going to post about this but we decided that it’s too mad of a story not to tell.’

The photographer who also took the pictures at Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s wedding and has a list of other celebrity subjects which includes Rita Ora, Bono, Calvin Harris and McBusted went on to say:

‘We were in Norway a few weeks ago – That moment when you’re in -25 in the middle of nowhere in Norway in the pitch black and your belt wagon crashes through the ice in the middle of a lake and you have to emergency evacuate through the roof. “Oh s*** we’re in” was my first though. Second was to take photos. We were in the front cabin. That is pretty much under water in this photo. A few minutes later it was all completely gone under the water and ice for good’

Luckily the pair managed to escape to safety by climbing out of the vehicle’s sunroof.

Shaken but unscathed Ellie Goulding who last week released the single Something In The Way You Move, went on to continue her tour, the UK leg of which begins in Cardiff on March 8th.
