Reindeer

In my dayjob, I drive around a lot. Up here in the north of Sweden herds of reindeer are fairly common. As such, when driving in the countryside, filled with vast forests, it’s not exactly a challenge to find these animals roaming. This might seem like an exotic shot to some but I will happily admit this was shot with a telezoom through the window of the car I was driving. Yes, I did find a parking spot before aiming the camera, but the animals were right next to the road – quite literally. In fact, you have to be watchful for reindeer in the winter and early spring. They often wander up on the road to lick the salt and if you’re not careful you might end up smashing through a bunch of them. Very nasty!

This photo was taken in early February 2014.
