[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was on the Valdresflya taking pictures from the landscape. Sitting behind a few big rocks I was installing the camera and was drinking a coffee. Suddenly there was a soft noise I didn't recognized. When I turned around 4 reindeer were watching me instead of me watching them....
Fortunately the 200 mm was mounted on the camera. Shortly after taking the picture they were running away very fast.
The photo itself is framed a bit narrow, but I think it is jolly scene anyhow.

This is a nice shot with nice colors and POV!. Congratulations! Carme.

Hello Ruud
I think these Caribou are in amazement of you. These moments are special when everything seems to work out and are able to capture it with your camera. They sure are scruffy looking as they shed their thick coat. Love the composition, colours and lighting.

Hello Ruud,
A lovely bunch of curious fellows!
Pity they aren't the most good looking this time of year as the are throwing the winter fur, but still it is a wonderful view...

I had never visited your gallery before and I am glad to have a free trip to NOrway, a country we never hear about, here, yet that mystifies me because of its wilderness, the language and the beautiful landscapes. Thank you Ruud, I am happy to be there a little bit,
