Last February I was in the northern part of Finland, capturing landscape pictures around the areas of Riisitunturi National Park as well as near the Ruka Ski Area, at Kuontivaara.
This is an area which looks a bit similar to Riisitunturi. However, being on a higher altitude, the area includes a large number of trees which are heavily covered with multiple layers of snow. This allows for the display of all kinds of forms and shapes, just like statues made of snow.
This picture was captured during the so called 'blue hour', just after sunset. The picture looks like a small group of aliens made of snow, looking out over the valley.
It hadn't been snowing as much as this in this part of the country for over 30 years! The temperatures dropped down to minus 30 degrees Celsius. There was a small hut nearby where we could warm ourselves at the campfire every now and then. Despite the cold it was a magical experience and one I really enjoyed.
