The Arctic Life
This shot was taken in Tromso, the northernmost frontier of Norway, barely after the evening when Tromso experienced its very first snow of the year. Here, reindeers are seen eating lichens and moss hidden under 8-15 inches of snow. Their hoofed legs would help to dig up the thick blanket of snow and find fresh moss for their survival. Almost, the entire Sami tribe's livelihood relies heavily on reindeers well-being.
