New Photo: The Last Light

If you like winter scenes, you will love Lapland! Beautiful shapes in the snow, sunsets that create a golden touch on the ground and trees – what else could you want! Some hot wine maybe, but that’s a different story.

New Photo: A Single Track

I was flying around with my drone, trying to spot some Reindeer – which is when I noticed the awesome light that came through those trees at sunset. I love the contrast between the golden light and the cool shadows on the snow – but even more – the lone tracks that were left by a fox.

New Photo: The Great Sunset

I’ve seen some sunsets in my life – but this one was so good that it felt unreal. I can only assume it was the whole situation – ice cold, eyelashes frozen, a deep red sunset that threw a soft red onto the undisturbed snow, and all these natural frames that would be created by the frozen trees.

New Photo: The Hidden Stay

This is a drone shot from Lapland – and if you look carefully, you notice several tracks in the snow on the frozen lakes. These tracks are from the night before when we tried to hunt for the aurora and find the best compositions. I am not very comfortable walking on ice, simply for fear that it may break, but … it didn’t. Win!

New Photo: The Ultimate Light

Taking this photo in Lapland was exhausting. I was cowering against a slope, half sunken into snow at the edge of a lake in the middle of the night, obviously. One of the many problems was the branch that I used as a hole to photograph through – cause when it is so dark, you see NOTHING on the camera screen. So you don’t actually know what you shoot until you take the image. That means loads of taking a photo, repositioning the camera, trying again and so on until you have the frame that you want. Anyway, enough ranting – what you see here is a composition of different focuses so that the sky, the trees in the back and the branch are as sharp and crisp as possible. It didn’t work completely, but I’m still happy with the outcome!
