"Norwegian Caribou"

If you like this you're welcome to V+F !! :) This is a shot from last night, feb20th. Here I am laying on the frozen ground shooting handheld with my 1DX, 1.6sec exposures and 14mm lens.

Caribou is the north-American term for Reindeer. This "Caribou" was photographed close to Tromsø, northern Norway.

This reindeer is tame and used to humans, however it was still a very exciting experience lying this close with the 14mm handheld, and feel this big animal breath you in your face! A small rope hanging from it's neck was removed in post.

Shot lots of exposures, many variants, not all turned out tack-sharp, obviously, this one I think was OK, and I like the multi colored lights above.
