Fjellchaser

Wild mountain reindeerIt was by far one of the most exhausting photo-projects I’ve done so far. The idea was climbing the Fjells of Forollhogna nationalpark, finding wild mountain reindeer, taking pictures and going back home. In fact, we were hiking in Fjells for more than 10 hours a day with backpacks of up to 30 kg just to find nothing. It took us 8 days before we got our chance. I’ll never forget that grande moment we saw the first group of wild mountain reindeer standing in the morning fog! Throughout the day we came quite close to this shy animals. I took this picture a few moments before sunset more than 9 hours after we found the first animal in the frosty morning. Time flew by that day like never before…
