Moose

I captured these four animals just before Christmas, yes there are four of them. Two in the middle.
In this picture they are looking at cars driving by just a few hundred meters away.
Because I don't have a "papparazzi"-lense, this is the best I could do. They saw me as well as the cars.

  1. Awesome photography, Ivar! Some of your shots overlooking cities reminded me of this book I have called "Italy From Above". I thought you might find it interesting. Three photographers listed on it are Antonio Attini, Marcello Bertinetti and Alberto Bertolazzi. They must've spent a lotta time in a helicopter! Your camera really captures blue sky in a lovely way...

  5. Absolutely stunning! Your photos and Norway. I'm glad you are 'Blog of Note' today, or I'd probably never have seen these. You have an artist's eye as well as camera expertise.

  8. Helt skjønne bilder! Jeg vokste opp i Oslo, men bor nå i Portland, Oregon, USA - disse bildene viser verden hvor nydelig Norge er. Jeg har en venn som jeg skal vise disse bildene til...

    Jeg skal lenke din blog til min blog - jeg skriver om å være trikkefører i Portland.

  37. Hei Ivar!

    For et herlig bilde! Jeg har bodd i Norge og besøkt Norge mange ganger etterpå og hadde så lyst å se elg!
    Riktig, har aldri fått se noen hittil....

    Kanskje jeg har mer flaks når jeg først flytter tilbake (etter nyttår)?

    Ha et riktig godt nyttår!!

    Hilsen, Ellen

  40. Drømmen å få tatt sånne bilder! Helt knall!!

    Under vår biltur nordover i forfjord, møtte vi på masser av forskjellige dyrearter langs veien. Blandt annet dukket der plutselig opp en elgokse med en elgku diltende på hver side av seg. De tre så ikke ut til å ense oss i det hele tatt. Vi stanset bilden og både filmet og knipset. Desverre var ikke utstyret på kamerafronten særlig å skryte av dengangen (mitt ixux kompaktkamera) og tåka lå ganske tett. Men opplevelsen var stor - så jeg kan bare forestille meg følelsen da du knipset disse fire!!
    Flott!

  44. I like that photo ... only papparazzi need a papparazzi lens - lol
    You deserve to be a blog of note - you take good photos! ... I love those blue photos, and there is one of a huge snow covered tree I like a lot too ... make me want to come and visit Norway ... but Australia is a long way away, so travel from here is not cheap ... sigh ...

  53. Hallo Ivar,

    nice to see one more post from you in the end of the year, hope you feel good.
    Wonderful to meet the "moose" in the wintertime. 1994 three of them run into the road and used the road for walking. We had to follow for a while befor they disappeared to the forest. Beautiful Norway.
