Snowmobile and eagles

February 12, 2012

Feels like I’ve really become an outdoor monkey, today I visited a small village called Oxkangar which is about 30-40km outside of Vasa, where I got the chance to drive a snowmobile. I’ve lived in Finland for about 20 years and today was the first time I actually drove one.

Damn was I scared and thrilled at the same time, that thing could reach speeds above 200km/h (though I only pushed it to ~100km/h).

On my way home back to Vaasa we got a glimpse of two large White-tailed Eagles, sadly my Tamron isn’t the best when it comes to crisp images but I managed to at least get one semi-decent shot.
