lapland IV.

the second part of the walk through Malla park had been harder than the first one - since we started to climb the mountain: the muddy path was partly covered in swamps and full of big rocks which were likely the result of various landslides. the closer we got to the top of the mountain the harsher the path became - yet the landscape was becoming more and more spectacular and that kept me going.
photographs from Lapland IV:

Nikon FM - fuji superia x-tra 400.
on the way up we spotted a couple of reindeers running away: I managed to captured that moment with my Nikon - even though I was far from them. on the top of the mountain we saw a full herd of them as they were eating on the edge of the cliff - but I didn't dare to get close.
click on the 2nd, the 4th and the 5th photo to see the reindeers better!
this is the last of my posts about Lapland: it was a truly beautiful journey and I will never forget it! I didn't see any of the birds from my list though - one more reason to get back there soon.
Scandinavian Music Group - Manner

♥ the album I had listened to the most while I was in Lapland: enjoy!
