I’m now in place in the photo hide. There’s a bear. There is a bloody… okay… Bye We are here in Simon’s apartment in Aalborg and look at this… Simon is… sneaking away now… he is shy for the camera. Look we have the drone,… 500 is over there.
That was the 500. Equipment, equipment, equipment. More equipment. It’s going to be really nice that we have our car.
So yeah,… and for now we are done packing. There is cold beer on the terrace. So it’s very late past midnight now and… Simon has been almost jumping out of that window several times, because he is playing with a… DJI S… Was it 900? – S900
S900… and he’s trying to map all these channels. So, well now the plan is to… Yeah, get the last stuff packed. That means get everything packed and then get it to the car except the camera equipment. Get a few hours sleep, get up,… drive to the boat and then we can hopefully sit on that boat with a cup of coffee. So yeah… See you there. It is very early after about… three hours of sleep. We woke up. Of course we are late to go to bed last night. We played with the big drone and
packed the equipment and got a gin and tonic and a beer and… – Good morning
So… Tired I guess. So yeah, let’s catch that boat and let’s go to Finland. ♪♪ So we have just arrived in Finland now and… Now it all starts. Let’s go up north to the wolves and the bears and
to the big forest of Finland. ♪♪ We are now in Finland. We have been driving 1200 kilometers from home and we have about… 1.2 kilometer to a destination, the base camp.
And look at this. It’s absolutely awesome. ♪♪ We have one big problem though, and that is,… I think we took a wrong road.
Look at this. Road is blocked and I can’t get this one up. Ready to go back?
-Yes! I just figured out there are plenty of mosquitoes here.
So yeah, let’s get in. ♪♪ Look around. This is our home for the next… week or so.
We have today to relax and tomorrow afternoon we are going out to
the blind for the first time and… Until then it’s just time to basically get settled here and meet some other photographers, make some photos, make some videos, fly the drones,… It’s so good to be here. I’ve been here before and
it’s so nice to be back. Look around.
Look how awesome this is. Like, before we start going mental about how nice everything is, I think… It’s time to get the things out of the car or maybe go in and say hello, and then I’ll start… Yeah… ♪♪ So, finally we’re done packing. Almost. Simon’s coming with the last things here.
We have all our equipment, all the tripods,… the drone here,… the big lenses,… So everything seems to be a perfect trip.
Now, this is our little cave for the next… five, six days, maybe seven. We don’t know yet. Yeah, everything is ready now and… I’m super excited for this week. What we will see wolves, bears, wolverines, birds, squirrels,… I don’t know.
I have no idea, but I really pray that it will be good. But for now Simon is waiting for me and
we are going over there to have a…. little dinner, so… Yeah, see you later. ♪♪ It’s about 10 o’clock now and… we just returned from a swim in this… wonderful lake. And I can’t wait until tomorrow when we are actually going out to the blinds. For now… the plan is to stay up the whole night,… have like one hour, one and a half hour sleep
so we can turn our day rythm around,
because for the next five or six days, we’ll be sleeping like six hours during the day and the night we’ll be out in the forest or near the lakes looking for the wildlife here in Finland. So yeah, it’s time to… get the equipment organized.
Like… recharged all the batteries,
maybe get a little snack fly the drone now in the last hour and then,…
yeah,… a little nap and then… Let’s see… See you later or tomorrow. So, now we’re here. In the blind. There was one water hole and
I decided to step in that one. Oh… So, let’s get in. I’m now in place in the photo hide and it is probably 35 degrees Celsius in here,
because the sun is baking on the roof and… Like, the sweat is just coming down. [exhales] This is definitely something different than photographing in the muskoxen on Dovrefjell
in the middle of the winter. It’s like the direct opposite. But, I’m going now to get this equipment ready and… Today, I’ve brought only the
Canon 1DX Mark II with a 500 millimeter. Today was like so confusing, because sleep and awake and we went for a little run
to try to clear the brain and went for a swim and went to the sauna… and then it was food and
suddenly we just had pack in a hurry and like… yeah, so… Home in the base camp is the Nikon with 600. So the bad thing about that is, that I just don’t have it. The good thing is, now I can focus 100% on… the Canon with the 500. Making videos, making photos.
I have the 1/4 converter. It’s going to be awesome and I also have… a really nice gun mike.
So hopefully I can record some sounds. There’s a bear
There is a bloody,…okay Bye ♪♪ Okay, I had to put the camera down,
because there was a bear out there. I just need to… Just need to get set up, get the microphone out, get the cables up, so everything is perfect. But I have to admit… that… it’s challenging to do the vlogging from here
when I’m so excited about… the wildlife. [Exhales] It’s so warm. See you later. It’s still extremely warm in here, but at least the sun is gone now and I got my t-shirt on. The sun is hidden behind some clouds and
it makes a much better light. There’s been some bears and
I have got some pictures. But, everything just went crazy… the first hour, so… I couldn’t… like I wasn’t even ready and
I couldn’t set up that camera properly… and there’s so many things.
It’s challenging, but… Over there in the trees… is a bear lying down and
I hope it comes over here. Then I’m ready this time and
I’m ready with that one. So,….
Yeah Yeah, I’m sweating,
you can probably see that. And I’m really sorry
I had to start off this video without a shirt on. It’s just I was not ready. I didn’t mean to vlog without like a t-shirt on,… but suddenly it it all just began.
So, yeah. It’s so nice and quiet. And on my left hand side are
four other blinds,… also with photographers. And my good friend Simon is there.
I can see his lens pointing towards the same bear
as I’m talking about. But no more talking for me.
Let’s just… wait…. And maybe,…
Can you see over there? Wait, wait, wait, wait… Over there… Move the camera little bit. Right there… It’s my coffee… and I’m going to have a cup now. See you later. The wolf is here… ♪♪ Oh,…
I have to photograph this. Hold on. ♪♪
