Notsuke Peninsula

During my visits to Notsuke Peninsula I experienced, snow, blue sky, and a lot in between. This is shot when the wind was battering the landscape, making it very cold and unpleasant to stay outside for more than a few minutes at a time. Aperture: ƒ/6.3 Camera: NIKON D4S Focal length: 70mm ISO: 100 Shutter […]

Sika Deer (Cervus nippon)

Sika Deer (Cervus nippon)

During the winter months male sika deer (bucks or stags) wander out to the coast, and in this case to the beautiful Notsuke Peninsula, seeking out the dense grasses and decidious bush growing here, but also the seaweeds and kelps washed ashore. Here you can get extremely close and intimate with these magnificent animals as […]

Blue shed, Notsuke Peninsula

Blue shed, Notsuke Peninsula

The colors of the houses in Hokkaido are rather bland, dominated by beige, grey and off-white. Very different from what you encounter in the Norwegian country-side, where you’ll find buildings in bright red, blue, yellow and white. This blue shed was standing very much out in it’s unique color, which brings down the color of […]

The colors of the houses in Hokkaido are rather bland, dominated by beige, grey and off-white. Very different from what you encounter in the Norwegian country-side, where you’ll find buildings in bright red, blue, yellow and white. I found only one shed, and these fishing net floats in bright colors. Here the daylight is coming […]

Blue shed, Notsuke Peninsula

Blue shed, Notsuke Peninsula

Notsuke Peninsula is a beautiful stretch of open land and sea, with wetland on one side and pebbles and stones on the other side facing the Pacific. There is much wildlife here, and few buildings. During winter the wind and snow can be brutal, and any building must be able to stand against the storms. […]

Hokkaido Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes ssp. schrencki)

Hokkaido Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes ssp. schrencki)

I encountered several red foxes during my days in Hokkaido, but was surprised to see so many of them injured in various ways. One had a damaged front leg and was limping. Many had a tail with sores and little hair due to mites. These hairless-tailed foxes strangely enough had normal skin and fur on […]

Sika Deer (Cervus nippon)

I was deeply disturbed to see this amazing stag limping around in the snow with its right front leg trapped in a nylon rope stuck to his antler. I was uncertain as to how exhausted it was, so I stopped a car and pointed out to the situation and asked it they had a knife, […]
