Brown Bear in the taiga

Last autumn I was doubting whether to go back to the same place in Finland or to go to a different place. There are several companies offering bear hides, so I could also pick another place. The advantage of the same place (Wild Brown Bear), was that I knew the area looked quite natural and the conditions were nice. If I would go to a different place, I couldn’t be certain of that. The disadvantage of going to the same place was that I already took pictures in that setting. A different location would also mean a different setting. I eventually decided to go back to the same place, but I still wanted to create different pictures from the first time. The previous time I spent all nights in the bog and took most pictures out in the open. Now I wanted to focus more on a forest setting. As the weather was a bit better as last time, I could spent two nights in the forest hide and also the nights in the open, I did focus more on settings with trees in them. Here I placed a selection of the pictures I took (and here the old ones), so you can judge if I succeeded.
