Video: Reindeer migration in Norway

In December, Finnmark photographer Jan Helmer Olsen took to the skies to capture this incredible aerial footage of the migration of reindeer from Magerøya, Stiikonjárga and Ravdol to Karasjok, Norway, where the reindeer are herded into fenced areas and earmarked for identification. The epic scene is punctuated by the sublime beauty of the landscape.

Olsen stresses the importance of safety when shooting with a drone, and said that he received permission from Norway's National Security Authority and the Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority.
