A blast!

Never done this before with photographers but everything have to be a first time. Bjørn Oddvar asked me -“should we go out to stay a whole night?”

I have been visiting Ole Martin three times now, and still I get surprised by the enthusiasm shown by this marvellous nature guide.

This time I went together with the product specialist of Nikon Norway and representatives from pro dealer “Stavanger Foto”. They wanted to see how Norway Nature is run, as well as learning about the challenges (and joys!!) nature photographers are facing in their work. We spent three days with Ole Martin, and had a blast!

The first eagle swept down in a steep dive very close to the boat – setting the standard for the rest of the stay. We met all the familiar eagles in Flatanger, the cheeky Gulls and even a juvenile eagle sweeping down grabbing fish in front of well established birds – this guy will be a classic!

Extremely cooperative eagles, shifting light and stunning landscapes were served on silver plates by the best nature guide I know.

The short hours of darkness were spent outdoors photographing a nearby fox litter, giving very little time for sleep. Thanks Ole Martin – I will be back!
