The winter snows provide fantastic opportunities – along with a number of technical challenges – to photograph golden eagles in their natural setting in the coniferous forest.
Arguably Europe's most impressive and majestic bird, the golden eagle epitomises wilderness areas and the freedom of vast open skies. In the UK, the population is restricted largely to the Scottish Highlands and Western Isles, and while these birds constitute one of the most robust populations in Europe (there are around 450 pairs), seeing them at close quarters and photographing them is extremely difficult. As such, most golden eagle photography tends to be of captive birds in controlled conditions.
You will travel north of Stockholm to a remote and rustic, but nonetheless comfortable, forest lodge, which acts as a warm and welcoming base for daytime photography of golden eagles from a hide deep in the winter wonderland.
