here ARE jus t a few of einar ’s images (the tip of the iceber g, you might sa y)
SEA EAGLE LANDING
Capturing a photo of a sea eagle feeding its chicks was always a dream of mine. In an average year, only 20-30 pairs of these incredible birds raise chicks in Iceland, and a licence is required to photograph them. Since most of the nests are in remote locations, usually only one or two sites are accessible to photographers.
ARCTIC FOXES MATING
Arctic foxes are one of my favourite subjects, although they’re hard to find and photograph in Iceland. They are amazing creatures and they have my respect for surviving in the extreme environment. This pair copulated ten meters from my snow hide while staring into the lens, which was both a memorable and an odd moment.
ARTIC TERN FEEDING
This arctic tern flew the same route many times over this pond on Grimsey, an island off Iceland’s north coast, while fishing for small fry and insects. I was lying in the mud with my 500mm lens on a beanbag. The early sun and the reflection of buttercups on the opposite bank created a nice texture.
