  1. Nice video. But isnโ€™t it dangerous to make an open fire in the forrest with all the dead wood and so on around on the ground?

  2. I went in the woods here in northern Italy yesterday, hoping to hear some stags roaring: no deers and no pictures, but a lot of tasty chestnuts ๐Ÿ™‚ The Tamron looks fine after the Scottish moisture, isn't it?
    Wish you all the best!

  3. I want to see more night wildlife photography vlogs thanks so much for a nice video mr Morten. From Azerbaijan /baku

  4. Morten, great video. I live in Canada, so it's easy for us to just go out and camp.. I love to spend my weekend just walking in the nature and camping. Usually I spend most of my time trying to find wildlife to shoot with my Nikon D850 and my 500mm f4 or my 200-500mm 5.6 for longer hikes. I have a camper with a full shower etc, but sometimes I like just to pop a tent and camp outside, even in winter. Great video as always.! ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‘

  5. Morten, I really enjoy your inspiring videos. I'm about to purchase canon photography equipment for wildlife, landscape and nature photography. I live in South Africa, so what would be the best equipment you would advise for Africa?

  6. You did a great job of building up the suspense as you tracked down those deer! Another brilliant video. Sometimes we just need to get away and unplug, it's been too long for me. Time to dig out my tent!

  7. Awesome stuff as always Morten. I miss just heading out into the wild and unwinding like that! No real place around here (Texas) that that would be allowed at. So, I live vicariously through you with it. Thank you for sharing (= Cheers!

  8. Recently I relocated near a forest.. And I certainly don't want to camp here.. Because this place is infamous for elephants and leopards..๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰.. It's an awesome video Mr. Hilmer..

  9. Hi Morten. You have inspired me in many ways. So much so that I have today bought the same sweater as you have – the Svalbard from Devold. It just looked so warm and lovely on you that when I saw one in the Norsk Tourist Feregning shop here in Drammen, Norway – I just had to buy it. Cheers.

  10. Another superb video Morten, I could watch your videos all day. I know itโ€™s a lot harder for you to respond to comments now you have 66K subscribers, but please may I ask if you were so sufficient on your wild camps and moving in the semi dark without being heard before your stint in the special forces?

  11. I agree with Liesl, quite the blessing. I like nothing better than minimal shelter and sleeping bag on the ground as the owls sing me to sleep. They have been outside my window nearly every night lately. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Wait… wait… wait!! Tea?? You're suppose to drink coffee, your favorite beverage. Lol. A simple and good video Morten. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Speaking of shipping books, our copy of "Silence of the North" has arrived safely. TYVM!
    Nice Grรคnsfors Bruks, I opted for the flay polled hunters ax… Knowing me I'd wind up pushing the bit through timbers by the back of the head so figured I might as well have the smooth transition.

  14. Hey Morten, I'm just getting into wildlife photography and I was wanting you to do a video on researching animals like foxes or something and choosing photo blind spots etc

  15. Morten eres mi favorito!! Gracias por subir tus vรญdeos de fotografia t naturaleza, espero puedas venir algรบn dรญa a mi paรญs y disfrutar de la Patagonia Argentina, saludos.

  16. Great video!!! I am new to wildlife photography and I am trying to get informed as much as I can; reading about animals, birds and how to photograph them, but nobody talks about finding locations and animals to photograph. While doing a research on internet I understood that photographers are trying to protect animals and they don't share locations, that's completely normal as the animals shouldn't get annoyed by human presence on their natural habitats, but how am I going to find spots to photograph animals and birds as a beginner ? Any help is appreciated.

  17. Dang! How do you even sleep at such nights, I'd be too excited and probably keep myself awake till the morning. Lovely video; simple, elegant and encouraging as always.
    P.S – I got the 200-500mm ๐Ÿ˜(if you remember)

  18. I'm in the Belizean jungle and my internet isn't too great. Such a shame I need to watch your videos in 144p ๐Ÿ˜ข Fantastic video, as always! So much inspiration.

  19. Hi Morten what was the out come with the tamron 150-600 autofocus did it start working after all that rain in scotland

  20. Hello Martin! I love your work. Here in the U.S. you would never go out in the forest photographing during hunting season in a ghillie suit. A hunter would probably mistake you for a squirrel and shoot you. Thank you for sharing your adventures!

  21. I watched this from my hospital bed, after an accident a couple of weeks ago left me with some pretty serious leg injuries. Thank you Morten for transporting me to a much nicer place for half an hour. it was a wonderful escape. Keep up the great work!

  22. Just having looked at your wonderful video, I was wondering if you don't experience ticks in your forest up there? Down here in The Netherlands (forested Veluwe Region) it's a major drawback having these tiny ticks all over the place. I'd love to be out in the open but with those little blood-suckers around… no way!

  23. Your videos are such a joy to watch for me and my wife, thank you for the wonderfull experiences you share. It gives us inspiration to create photos as well.

  24. Iโ€™m curious what kind of temperatures youโ€™re dealing with during an excursion like this? Also, when camping around here (Central California), seeing other campers and hunters (during seasons) is typical. We always hope to see wildlife such as bears (from a distance!) coyotes, raccoons, deer, eagles, etc. Does your forest include any of the aforementioned? I love your videos. You convey such an excitement and wonder of the outdoors and your profession. I wonder if you could provide a little more information on your settings though? Thank you for sharing your experiences.

  25. Hi Morten,
    Really love your videos ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have you decided to switch from Nikon yet? And would you consider the Panasonic G9 as your main camera? I personally think it would be a fantastic choice (fast, instantaneous autofocus, fantastic video features, in body stabilisation for moments where you have to react quickly and can't use your tripod, dual card slots, weather sealing and more). There are also some fantastic tele lenses for the MFT system and you could use your GH5 as back up. Just a thought though ๐Ÿ™‚

    Another question is whether you would recommend a zoom or a prime for a beginner wildlife photographer?

    Cheers from Germany ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. I tuoi video sono meravigliosi! Li guardo sempre con piacere, saluti dall'italia. Your videos are wonderful! I always look at them with pleasure, greetings from Italy.

  27. Beautiful video. Calming me down. Which Tamron (or Sigma) is it you use in this video? A matter of weight? I have the 200-500, itโ€™s superb, but heavy beast ๐Ÿ˜Š

  28. Hello.I am French and I watch your videos for some time and I love your travels and your photos: but what I appreciate most is the respect you have for nature and the animals you photograph. have been doing animal photography for some time, and I take note of all your advice: with great pleasure.I do not speak English well enough to talk to you and I use a translator: please excuse me.Continue to make me dream with your videos.Thank you.And now, I'm going to have a coffee.

  29. Love the way of your wildlife photography … You are doing well without disturbing animal … Soo peaceful and beautiful ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  30. U need to come to the land of no rain…. No water mate. Wildlife photography in Oz. Come on you know you want to ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

  31. Hey sir…. your videos are just awsome ๐Ÿ˜…i have like no words ๐Ÿค—.and the background music is as soothing as your explanations๐Ÿ˜Ž … it feels like you are drinking the nectar of love from mother nature…๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
    i have one question….Don't u have fear in the wild..?? ..

  32. Hi Morten . . . lovely video, thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
    One of my very favorite nature calls is that of the Maine Loon; very eerie and lonely sound, but usually they're only calling for their mate. Have you ever heard them?
    Hope you are well and your little dog, too.
    Take care,
    (type in 'Loon Calls At Night' on search bar; it'll give you the best calls)

  33. Morten, I love watching your videos, they are so peaceful. Your love of nature is so apparent, but the fact that you bring us with well that's just awsome. Your videos are very similar to another artist I very much enjoy, he goes by the name Trollsky. I am a knife maker in the USA and have always loved watching his videos of his knife making because of the wonderful feeling ease. I get the same relaxing feeling from your videos. Thanks for bringing us along. Me being a knife maker I have been very curious about the knife you carry on your hip. I'd love to here about it in one of your videos sometime. Maybe show it off a little. Maybe you would accept a knife from me as a thankyou for your passion and your effort in bringing us along.

  34. And then you did bushcraft… we love the same things my friend. I did bushcraft and then discovered wild life photography, while you did wild life photography and discovered bushcraft๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป both are god excuses to be in nature…! ๐Ÿ˜‰ isnโ€™t it?!

  35. That bread looked absolutely awesome. I use the 5 seconds of heat rule as well and you can learn to trust it. All the best, TT

  36. I watched this already and I am watching it again! your are so genuine and natural when filming. Your journey helps to recover from stress hahaha!
