David & Carol Taylor, John Betts & I had a trip to Dovrefjell National Park in Norway. David & Carol had visited the area a few years ago in the autumn time and were happy to revisit to try and capture more images of the Musk Ox.

I had previously seen Musk Ox in Northern Quebec and they had been difficult to photograph as they were very skittish, running away as soon as they saw you approaching. The Dovrefjell herds are more habituated with people and it was much easier. What was challenging was the distances we had to walk with an average daily walk in the region of 10 kilometres over terrain that was undulating to say the least and at times we had to cross the tundra vegetation which was rocky and boggy.
But once again another great trip with fantastic photographic opportunity.
