lapland III.

before leaving for Lapland I had thought that one film roll would have been enough for one week - but I was wrong: how could I possibly limit myself to take such a few photographs of those majestic landscapes? in fact on the third day I had already started a second film roll.
photographs from Lapland III:

Nikon FM - fuji superia x-tra 400.
that day the weather became foggy again - yet random rays of sun were sometimes visible through the clouds. we took a boat to the border with Sweden through the lake of Kilpisjärvi: the plan was to walk the sixteen kilometers of the Malla park across the mountains to get back to Finland. the weather was much colder on the other side of the lake - the frost on the ground made the autumn colours look even more vivid than the previous days. we took the whole morning to reach the bottom of the mountain and we were going to need a few hours more to walk across it: I hadn't walked that much in a very long time - yet I kept on taking photos despite the difficulty of the path.
I am going to share more photographs of the Malla walk in my next post!

♥ Kilpisjärvi's special postmark.
I couldn't possibly forget to send a postcard to Jacopo: Kilpisjärvi gets the most beautiful postmark I have ever seen!

  6. that stamp is indeed beautiful! aurora borealis is simply magic (and i've only seen it on tv and photos!)!
    and your photographs are so beautiful - and you should have know better than thinkning you'd only spend a roll of film ;)

    and i really like the fact that during a few days it seems like you have captured two different seasons in lapland :)
