Begin this year, my niece and I went to Lapland. It was the most amazing experience of my life! The surroundings were so beautiful. Everything was white. You had these glittering snowy trees and it was so magical.
The sun came up around 11:30 pm and went down around 14:30 pm. Therefore we constantly had a beautiful sky. A long lasting sunrise and sunset. That also gave a very magical feeling throughout the day. I’m in love with sunrises and sunsets. The sky is, next to portraits, my favorite thing to photograph.
We always went for a walk at this time and took lots of beautiful photos that are definitely worth showing in my opinion. That’s why I started writing this blog on my website to show my friends and family the photos I make on a regular basis.
So we walked a lot and explored the area but we also did a few excursions. On our first excursion, we did the snowmobile safari in the evening, which was pretty cool. I found it a bit scary at first, but later on, it was so much fun to do. It’s a very nice way to travel for the locals! We also did the Snowshoe Hike and we went to Snow Village, a hotel made of snow. I also really liked the Husky Safari at sunrise.
The best thing of our holiday were, of course, the Northern Lights!! We saw the Northern Lights like 3 times and that’s very special. Some photographers have been there 5 times and never seen it. You have different scales from 1 to 10 and we’ve seen it maybe at scale 4. Which is not very powerful to see with the naked eye but clearly visible on camera luckily! Unfortunately, I forgot my tripod and they weren’t sold in the village, so not all my pictures are equally sharp. You can’t take pictures of the northern lights without a tripod guys. Biggest mistake of my life haha. It will never happen again.
