lapland 2013 part II.

on friday I finally got my photographs from the lab: I was so excited to be able to look at them that I have spent most of the weekend sorting out the prints and scanning them - there are many I would like to share here and I will do so little by little in chronological order. I will start with the photographs I took with my Nikon FM and my Konstruktor and I will share the ones taken with my Hasselblad in the end - I have used a very special film for her and got quite unique results.
photographs from Lapland part II:
Nikon FM - Lomography Color Negative 400
Lomography Konstruktor DIY - Lomography Color Negative 800
the morning of the first day Jacopo and I decided to hike to the top of the Saana mountain: it is the highest one in Finland and a must-see if you pass by Kilpisjärvi. unfortunately the higher we went the thicker the fog became and we could not admire the valley below us the way I did last year - the Ruska colours though were as beautiful as I remembered them. in the afternoon we headed towards Saanajärvi - I will tell you more about it in the next post.
P.S. quite many posts about Lapland will follow this one: in hope that you will enjoy them at the end of the series I will have a little surprise for my dear readers! ♥

    1. Thank you so much, Inês! The first one was the view when I was climbing up to Saana mountain - we were quite far from the top still and the fog wasn't that thick yet.
