Taken in Finland (Lapland) in Dec 2006. It was around -30C and I needed to keep taking the battery out the camera to warm it up in my glove to give it a few minutes more power. Thanks for looking (best viewed large!).

Great shot – I love the delicate colour in the sky, and the way the reindeer appears to be camera-shy! I’ve yet to use a digital in such cold conditions, but have heard all about the problems with batteries – well done on the capture!
What a wonderful shot. The perspective and teh fadeback from his face to the track and forest is very impressive.
this is beautiful. It has a soft gentle feeling to it. glad you persevered with the batteries!!
Mmmm…i love reindeers and finland! great shot
Gorgeous photo. Love the light and the way the reindeer sliced though the image from top to bottom.
Gorgeous lighting and subject :) Next time put your battery down your pants (between your thighs) or under your hat on top of your head-It will heat up REAL QUICK and get u a couple more shots :)
Thanks for the comments guys, and thanks for the tip Belinda. Despite the cold I think I will venture back north and try it out soon. It really pays off when you get nice shots…. and a hot toddy or three when you get back indoors.Thanks again for looking and taking the time to comment….. off to check out your own profiles now!
Absolutely unbelieveable… the clarity and frozen ends of the fur are awesome… This is truly an inspirational shot! Great work Trifle!
