lapland I.

last saturday I got back from Lapland with some beautiful memories in my heart and a couple of film rolls to develop. I couldn't possibly restrain myself from taking a lot of photographs since the landscape was absolutely spectacular. today I eventually got my films developed and I decided I am going to share my favourite shots in four different posts.
photographs from Lapland I:

Nikon FM - kodak portra 800.
the first day the weather was rainy and foggy: the grey sky was contrasting beautifully with the colourful autumn landscape. we had the chance to look closely at the Saana mountain - which we were going to climb up the day after. we then drove to Norway and the Arctic Ocean - which isn't that far from Kilpisjärvi.
what is your favourite photograph among the six I have uploaded? I need a little help to decide which one to eventually upload on my flickr.

this delicate flower is a special souvenir from Saana mountain.

    1. grazie, Emi! :-) anche a me piacciono molto quelle due, ma preferisco le prime due perché mi sembra che rappresentino meglio Kilpisjärvi! ;-)

  7. ps about Moonrise Kingdom, I found it pleasant, but I felt totally whatever about it. Nothing like Rushmore :)

    1. I guess I should watch Rushmore a second time then, now that I have seen Moonrise Kingdom, and compare the two! ;-)

  14. I am in one word jealous! It's been a year since I was in Sweden (Jämtland) and 6 years since I was in Lapland. I always want to go back. And being there in autumn when the landscape has a reddish glow, must be great. :)
