Photographer's Note

This is about as far as we can get in Endalen, one of the valleys leading into Forollhogna National Park, as the road ends 200 m from where I'm standing, behind my back.

If you continue it is trekking, and in a few km you will reach the mountain plateau where the wild reindeer live!

Do you know the difference between tame and wild reindeer? Well I assume the main difference is that tame reindeer are owned by someone, usually from the sami people. And the wild ones are of course more shy as they are not used to people.

The river seen in the image is Ena, giving its name to the valley it passes through, and this one was taken by the end of a dry summer so there isn't much water...

Some guys are asking for GPS tags. That means I have to use two cameras to get the recordings, and I’m usually too lazy for that. However, I normally take a couple of exposures with the GPS camera in the area, which may be up to a few hundred meters away from the real position of the main image. So this time too:
