Musk ox in winter, a great motif

A Musk ox safari close to Oppdal in Trøndelag, Norway, may include some great shots, Photo: Sigbjørn FrengenSeeing the musk ox in the harsh winter climate of Dovrefjell National Park is in itself an experience, and the photo motif can at times be amazing. If it is cloudy or winter stormy, the rugged musk ox is standing still against the winter snowstorm up on the mountain plateau, and posing happily for those who would come by.
