In winter, Northern Lapland isn’t exactly characterized by an abundance of wildlife but there are certain possibilities for wildlife photographers, too. Reindeer in herds of varying sizes are a particularly common sight in the area.I was cross-country skiing in the woods in Saariselkä when I spotted these two adult reindeer and a fawn. Knowing that both sexes of the species can grow antlers, I instantly thought they look like a family although, of course, I don’t really know for sure.As for the technical stuff, the end result here is a simple one-exposure picture edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.
The Eurasian blue tit, being a non-migratory bird, is a common sight in southern Finland in the winter months when many other species have migrated to warmer parts of the world.I actually took this shot from within my home, seeing the bird just outside the house on a tree branch. I had recently acquired a teleconverter, which I wanted to test out, and just opening the living room window gave an easy-access chance for this.On the technical note, this is a simple one-exposure image, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.
