Autumn variety at Flatanger, Forollhogna and Dovrefjell

The first weekend of October I was at Flatanger on the western coast of Norway photographing white tailed eagles from boat. Most of the images turned out quite classic, but one late night we did have the eagles in front of the moon and that was a great experience!
