What to do in November?

November. Where is the light, the light I need to make my photos?  I found it in Flatanger, Norway. 

November. A month not usually linked with much photographic enjoyment, more like a long waiting for Christmas. But, after spending 6 days with the nature guide Ole Martin Dahle it feels that all my wishes for Christmas already came through in November. 

There are two hides set up mainly for the Golden eagle, both in beautiful settings with very good photographic opportunities. The quality of the late autumn light here up north will cure all tendency towards winter depression. Even if the daylight is limited to some 6 hours, the low sun means that there is possibilities to photography all the day. 

Both hides offered several visits of the great eagle every day and even two at the time occasionally. To witness a fight between these magnificent birds is a truly special experience, believe me. A bunch of Jays offers entertainment for the trigger finger when the eagles are away.

One day Ole took me and another Swedish photographer, Kenny Isaksson from Göteborg, out on one of his famous boat trips. The day meet us with a freezing breeze from the sea and choppy seas but Ole offered us warm survival suits. Why do you want to go out on the sea in these rather harsh conditions? Because the archipelago of Flatanger offers several territories of the White-tailed eagles and Ole Martin knows them all. 

During winter time, there are also a substantial number of younger eagles visiting the area. A less than three hour boat trip offered more than thirty white-tailed eagles close to the boat and some twenty dives after fish in fantastic winter light. The combination of the large number of birds, low winter sun and Ole Martins handling of the boat made up for some special photo opportunities. 

Large number of Gull’s offers the extra entertainment that always seems to be a part of the deal when you are a guest here.

So Ole Martin, thank you for some unforgettable November days in your company in Flatanger. The combination of a truly extensive knowledge about the eagles and your photographers eyes packed together with your fantastic hospitality and house makes me want to come back. Soon, very soon!

  3. Kjenner et skikkelig sug og savn etter de fantastiske opplevelsene i kongeørnskjulet ditt Ole Martin! Jeg må vel nesten se om jeg ikke finner en periode, der alt klaffer med jobb, ting og tang, og kommer flyenes opp :) I mellomtiden får jeg nyte disse, og de andre flotte bildene som presenteres fra ørneeldoradoet ditt.

  16. certainly like your web site but you need to check the spelling on quite a
    few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and
