WHITE IN WHITE


Ptarmigan (fjellrype)
D5, 600 4,0, f/6,3, 1/4000, ISO 560

I spent a week in the high alpine region of Utsjoki northern tip of Finland in early March. The ambition was to shoot ptarmigans and willow grouse under deep winterly conditions. Neither words nor pictures can explain the extreme beauty of the harsh arctic winter up there. I have some pictures in my head (!!) that I will never be deleted ! 

Anyway : I hope you like my digital stuff :-) You can click the pictures to see them bigger !!

A warm thank you to Jame Helander & Marcus Varesvuo.

Willow grouse (lirype). White flights in white surroundings with soft light is pretty difficult stuff for the autofocus. The D5 with the new 600 does an incredible job !!

Looks like Sahara, but it`s not. It is my friend M shooting ptarmigans in the arctic sunset with 15 degrees cold and a very heavy wind
