The Frozen Warriors

Award winning wildlife photographer Chris Schmid has completed an ambitious project to document one of nature’s most resilient animals. In a bid capture the musk oxen in their most natural habitat, Chris travelled in freezing temperatures and winds of up to 100 km per hour searching for the perfect snowstorm.


Carrying his equipment in extreme conditions, he journeyed through Norway’s Dovrefjell-Sunndalsfjella National Park in order to show the power and strength of the musk-ox.
