After a long weekend with good friends in PhotoNatura at the Island of Hanö, I am now struggling with processing all my photos. On the east side of the island there is a large colony of gulls which also host some razorbills.  Here is a first preview 🙂

Red-throated loon …

Red-throated loon is reasonably common  in marshy areas with many small ponds  in the middle and northern Sweden (from the county of Västmanland,  Dalarna and Värmland and further north).

We had the pleasure to watch this couple last weekend during a frosty morning at Knudshöjdsmossen, Västmanland.

Best, Thorsten

The Portuguese name is to me much more suitable than the English; Ringed Kingfisher. The largest and the most common kingfisher you can see along the rivers and wetlands in the Pantanal area, Brazil.

Best,  Thorsten

… one of mine  is certainly the African savanna in Kenya. Experiencing the magnificence of colors at sunset accompanied by a rising thunderstorm at the horizon is very powerful. What’s Your Favorite Place on Earth?

Moose calfs …

En tidig morgon för ett par veckor sedan mötte jag dessa tvillingar tillsammans med sin mor. Ett trevligt möte, men lite förvånad blev jag nog över hur pass små kalvarna faktisk var vid denna tid på året (slutet på augusti).

Kuikka base camp – a heaven for wildlife photographers

Brown bear


Kuikka base camp is situated not far from Kuhmo in Finland, close to the Russia border. The base camp is placed on a peninsula in lake Kuikkajärvi and surrounded by vast pine tree forest.

This time we were guided by the knowledgeable photographer and writer Magnus Elander and local wildlife professional Sami Rautiainen. This place turned out to be a heaven for photographing and watching bears, wolfs, wolverines and eagles. There were opportunities to make close-up photographs as well as more scenic pictures. The varieties of habitats were a great asset, including lakes, forest and open marshland areas.

After staying awake 5 nights in a row we were rewarded by numerous bear-sightings, a couple of wolverines lurking around the hide and in the last night we had the good fortune to observe interactions between bears and wolfs a couple of times. Of course there were many hours of “none-activity” but it was ok to fill with photographing ravens and white tailed eagles. To have the opportunity to watch animals in this large wilderness felt like a privilege. Kuikka base camp is probably the best place in northern Europa for wildlife photography.

All the best Thorsten
