exhibition: wildlife photographer of the year.

'snowed in' by orsolya haarberg.
orsolya camped through winter storms in norway's dovre-sunndalsfjella national park to photograph muskoxen. on particularly cold days, muskoxen conserve energy by resting. it's then possible to approach them, but if you get too close and spook them, there is a real risk of being trampled. 'for two days,' says orsolya, 'the wind was so strong and it snowed so much that I couldn't even see the animals.' but the next day it stopped snowing, and the massive forms of muskoxen emerged from the landscape.
