WILD TAIGA OF FINLAND – A LOVE STORY | Wildlife Photography, Photo Blind, Bears and Wolves

*wolves howling* ♪♪ When I was halfway through editing this last episode of the behind-the-scenes video from a trip to Finland… I realized I wanted this one to be different. So I trashed what I had already made and
started over again. Didn’t want it to be about me, but rather I wanted to show the fascinating nature of Finland… and the beautiful animals I met there. And I wanted it to be my way of saying thank you. So thank you wild taiga of Finland for sharing your beauty with me. And thank you raven, wolverine,… eagle, bear and wolf… for revealing yourself to me and letting me have a glimpse of you… and for giving me this unforgettable memory. I hope that one day more people will experience the beauty of being so close to you,… to sit here in the taiga surrounded by darkness,
watching your silhouette, listening to your voice. They’ll then hopefully understand you and their fear… and the passion in hunting you… will be replaced by fascination,… respect and the wish to protect you. And maybe, even though it has been so long… to reconnect with you. ♪♪

  1. Thank you so much everyone for all these fantastic comments – I am truly humbled and don't really know what to say to all these friendly, positive and encouraging comments. It really bothers me that I am so far behind answering them, but this fantastic community of photographers, naturalist and people who has nature in their heart simply give me so much fantastic feedback that I can't keep up with it:) I just want everyone of you to know that I do read your comments and they always make me so happy.
    Looking forward to sharing much more nature with you.
    See you out there…

  5. Amazing video Morten, it was a huge inspiration boost when I travelled to the same place in Finland 3 days after you posted this video. Check out my videoes if you have the time, keep up the good work 🙂

  6. Saw a documentary on TV a few days back about a professional hunter that gave up on his career of hunting after spending so much time observing the animals while stalking them. In middle of all that stalking he realized that the animals did nothing to him and will never do as long as you don't interrupt their lives, he realized that it was unfair to disrupt them lives for his own profit.
    After some research he discovered that he could still make a living out of nature without killing it, he bought a camera and some equipment and used his stalking skills to photograph the animals instead of killing them and today he says that this was the best choice he made in his entire life and managed to create a great respect for nature and it's animals.

  7. Wow this is really beautiful. I can watch it over and over. I hope that I can experience it someday. It is now on my bucket list

  26. I watch you all the time on YouTube and yet I have only just found this video and I am blown away, I really don't think that I know of another person that cares so much for the environment and nature as you do Morten. Often you hear photographers tell you about who inspires them, people such as Bresson, Adams and Leibovitz but, I have to say that I have never been more inspired by anyone than I have by you and your photography. I just love watching your videos, you are a truly inspiring person.

  27. I come from the channel a bit of everything, and watched their videos and they are the best, you make me more inspired by the photography in the relief that I have around me, good videos, a subscriber more📸📷🎥🍂🌴🌳🌲🐿🐇🦌🐐🐑
