One of the main reasons I went to Finnmark was to shoot seabirds at Hornøya bird island. I was especially interested in getting Atlantic Puffins in snow. It seemed however I was just a few days late as the temperature was above zero and the snow was melting rapidly. There was still some snow on the ground so I decided to get down low and shoot at my preferred angle. I really enjoy shooting wildlife against all white backgrounds and with a misty white foreground, especially black and white birds with few other colours. Check out one of my previous awarded penguin images from Antarctica her. With this in mind I was trying to get nice compositions and simple, graphic images of the parrots of the north.
Laying down in soaking wet snow in the rain on an island in the Arctic Ocean was a real cold experience, but the result was warming. I hope you like them too.
