Photographer's Note

Some days ago we were leaving Hrjedalen, going back home to Gothenburg. The rain was pouring down and we had just passed the allegedly highest situated village in Sweden, Hgvlen, at the altitude of 805 metres above sea level.

We were driving along road 311 between Tnns in Hrjedalen and lvros in Dalecarlia (Dalarna). This part of Sweden is the southernmost part of the Sami cultural area, and, as such, also the southernmost reindeer pasture district.

So, not unexpectedly, we had to stop for a herd of reindeers, standing in the middle of the road. They reluctantly moved to the side. I took a lot of pictures from the car, through the open window. Here they were standing about 50 metres from the road.

There are some other pictures as WS:s.
