By the russian border is a place called Kuikka. I went there last week for hopefully four days with lots of bears. As for nature photography you never know what you will get and unluckily we had only one evening with really good sightseeings. Besides of that it was a good trip and fall was in the air. The colours of the trees had started to turn to yellow and red, and overall we saw between 7-9 different bears. Last morning we saw a family of four wolves, very far away though, but it was really nice to see wolves in the wild 🙂

Early morning colors

The last evening I got the opportunity to borrow a Nikon D3s. I have heard many good words about this camera and finally I could try the ISO perfomance my self. It was all dark outside with almost no sight at all but with the camera on video mode I could se the bears outside. This shot under was taken with ISO 16.000 and a shutter speed of 1/10″ !! Not a killer shot it’s but amazing that you can take pictures that not to long ago was impossible to take.

Scratchy scratchy!

  1. 😛 Se der ja, gutten kom hjem med bjørnebilder i sekken! Ser ut til at du hadde en flott tur 🙂 Kan tenke meg at adrenalinet brusa litt når bjørnen kom nærme?

    Fine bilder!


    1. Allt for lite björn, men flott tur det var det!! 😀

      Den tredje kvällen rätt för det blev mörkt kom den ena björnen förbi vårt fotogömsle och stanna upp en meter framför luckan. Var helt säker på att han skulle köra in huvudet, men han stod still och luktade en minut för han gick videre 😀 adrenalin, jah!!


    1. Hehe, turen var jo fin. Och bilder blir det ju alltid. Men hade hoppats på mer björn då 😉

  2. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to
    let you know. The style and design look great though!
    Hope you get the issue solved soon. Many thanks

    1. Hello Jocely, I just started an update on my pagedesign. Havn’t updated all pages yet, will finish in a few days. But thanks for the notice 🙂
