Picture of flying raven against a snowy winter mountain in Northern Norway

Picture of flying raven against a snowy winter mountain in Northern Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera February 24th 2007. Click image for larger view.

In this photo I was lucky enough to catch the raven when it was divided between the blue sky and the snowy mountain. The raven was flying very fast so it was only luck on my side 🙂
Currently the sun have disappeared here in Northern Norway so I’m impatiently awaiting it’s return so I can take more pictures like this. Going on photo trips when everything is grey and sleet comes down from the sky is not fun.

Check out my other raven photos of a raven sitting on a boatshed roof and a raven flying into “gods eye”.

    What a beautiful picture and how well you’ve capture this wonderful bird.

    I know your days up north are fairly short right now, but you’ve probably got snow like we had in Oslo at least a couple of days last week.
