[28th September, 2012] At this year's September trip to Dovrefjell I was guide for an international group of wildlife photographers; Danny Green (UK), Yann Muzika (Japan/France) and Tom Dyring (Norway). The goal at Dovre Mountain was, of course, the Musk Ox.
For Danny, the Musk Ox was a must for his upcoming book; "The Long Journey North", and for them all the Musk Ox was a new experience. And we did find the prehistoric animals, even though they gave us some hard work since they were longer into the mountains than expected. Nevertheless, we did the lavvu camping, we did the hiking every day, and we did get the pictures. For me, who has been at Dovrefjell many times before, I just enjoyed being there again and tried to do my images in "new angles".
After five days at Dovrefjell we finished our mountain trip section at Forollhogna, before Yann and I went further north to Flatanger for White Tailed Eagle photography from boat with Ole Martin Dahle. As usual Flatanger did not disappoint us, and we got some marvelous September light with the eagles and a variety of other animals and birds.
Below you will find some images from the trip. Please click on the images to enlarge and see them in 1400px quality. Please feel free to leave your comments below if you like.
