Picture Story

Pyha-Nattanen mountains are one of my favorite spots in the Northen Finland ( especially Finnish ruska time in September, when this photo was taken), although logistically difficult to reach. Large heaps of rock have once been Sami holy places and have a special power - a safe place to charge batteries. I recommend taking the time and spend at least one night on site to feel this power. The spacious views offer many opportunities for taking pictures. Before trip I tried to check from web pictures taken by others to get idea about light. Unfortunately I have not found any pictures taken in good light conditions, so I was alone from this point of view. And it is good, your inspiration is free and you can create you own story , your own photo. During day I made long walk jumping on rocks, looking for location for sunset shot and hoping light is my friend. And finally I was not disappointed, my 6 days Lapland trip got paid. I got my red carpet.
