Run mooses, run
I must be dreaming – Where am I? What time is it? Am I really awake? Is this really real or just my imagination projecting an image in my head?
I have been driving for 2 hours early in the morning, when I suddenly come to an open part on the right side, when something catches my attention…Elks – and there are plenty…No it is not a moose park whatsoever…it is the will true Finnish forest…somewhere in Somerniemi in southwestern Finland…And yes – I am awake…I have been able to park my car besides the road and grab the gear from the backseat…and there it is – the view I have been dreaming about since I was a little child, inspired by a painting hanging on my great idols – my grandfathers wall! But the difference is that in the painting there are only three elks running through an open part in the forest. I count to seven animals. Majestic. Some seconds and they are gone. But I got them. In a beautiful snowfall. I do not need to take any mor pictures this year. This is it.
Believe me when I tell you – there is something magical happening every end of january. ” Ice fox” and “Tiptoe lark” are both captured by me on digital film the 31st of january (2009 respectively 2011) , and this happened today the 27th of january 2015. Sometimes you just need to be out there with your gear ready and know what to do with it…
