Almost two years ago I went to Dovrefjell to take pictures of Muskoxen. I knew those animals were introduced animals that now live completely self-supporting and wasn’t bothered by that at all. It was still a great kick to find them and be able to photograph en film them. When we finally found some Muskoxen on Greenland (ones that truly belong there), I realised that this is more impressive. Unfortunately these animals were also a lot more shy as the ones we had in Norway. No way we could get anywhere near them. Not that much of a problem, I just took some pictures of animals on the autumn-coloured tundra.
