The excitement & anticipation of our trip to photograph the Golden Eagles of the Swedish Winter was unbearable for all us including our guests! The expectations of photographing the wildlife & especially getting up close & personal with wild Golden Eagles in this beautiful snow-capped Swedish pine forest was going to be epic!

It all started with a trip around the M25 towards Heathrow where I met our first guest as we started our journey’s final destination to Skellefteå Airport in Sweden. I met our other guests for this trip at the Swedish airport as they were flying in from Hong Kong!

In A Snow Storm, One Of The Golden Eagles   Photographed During The Golden Eagles Of The Swedish Winter Photography Holiday

Northern Sweden in winter is spectacular – the landscape is made up of miles & miles of icy roads & snowy pines. At first, it looks lifeless, but once you get amongst the trees & utilise some fantastic local hides there are some great species to be seen & photographed! For the 2018 Golden Eagles of the Swedish Winter photography holiday, We were staying near Skelleftea & had a great group; we were all looking forward to the next few days!

Once we arrived in the winter wonderland & settled into our home for the next four days, it was time to hear how the Golden Eagles had been performing. The outlook was good with visits happening every day in the lead up to our arrival!
On the first day in the hide, we had steady snow all day, excellent conditions! Not only did this allow everyone to take some wintery photos but it also allowed shooting all day as there was no direct harsh light during the middle of the day. The small birds kept us busy between Golden Eagle visits as they flitted about in the wintery conditions.

During early March 2018, David attended our Golden Eagles of the Swedish Winter photography holiday. We chose this time of year to visit Sweden because the Eagles are most active in cold weather. Also, Northern Sweden in winter is spectacular with the pristine snow providing a magical quality to the images.

As you can see from David’s photographs, he was blessed with amazing light & some stunning eagle activity. Just look at the catchlight in the eagle’s eyes & the gorgeous golden tones in the feathers.
