reindeer

I thought that I was done with winter, but back home I started to look through this years Lapland winter trip images. I feel like I want to go back, and do more hiking with snowshoes. I love when there is high winds at winter. The snowdrift and the noises that wind makes are music to my ears.
In this image you can see how much effort the raindeer had to make to cross this hill. Tundra is really tough at winter.

Ma arvasin, et talvega on nüüd ühel pool selleks korraks, aga vaadates põhjapõdra pilte siis tekkis tahtmine tagasi minna. Seda pilti vaadates on näha, et isegi põhjapõdral on raske ennast läbi murda selle tugeva tuule käest. Ei ole lihtne seal. Tegelikult ei olegi seal suurt midagi talvel. Metsad ja lagedamad mäed. Tsivilisatsiooni märke hakkad nägema alles hämaras kui eemal süttivad tänavavalgustus lambid. Ise mõne mäe otsas külmetades ja mõeldes, et miks ei võiks mul normaalsemaid hobisid olla. Aga üli ilus on ikkagi. Eriline koht. Kindlasti lähen tagasi.

Revontulet

It seems that nobody is home, but lights are on (auroras).

It was unbelievable show, one of the best aurora dance that I have ever seen. If You have the chance, then please do consider visiting countrys where is high possibilty to see northern lights. You just have to see it before it is too late.

Lapimaa talve ilu jäädvustamiseks jäime hiljaks, puud ja majakesed ei olnud enam kaetud lumega. Aga see selleks, virmalised olid võimsad. Parim show mida olen näinud, tahaks veel :)

Kaks säritust, kuid mõlemad on tehtud samal ööl.

Pallas-Yllästunturi

There is nothing better, than hiking alone in tundra. The views are worth the struggle. Snowshoes are life savers in Lapland. Couple days more and I have to go back to home.

I’m not looking forward those 900km to drive to harbour :)

I managed to get couple images of northern lights, soon I will publish these :)

Ei ole midagi paremat kui matkata üksi Lapimaa tundras räätsadega. Sellist vaikust ei ole mina “kuulnud” kusagil mujal. Üli mõnus tunne on kui vead ennast mõne mäe otsa ja näed enda ümber tühjust. Päikeseloojangu kuma õrnalt valgustamas mäetippe. Ideaalne viis päeva lõpetamiseks.

Pyhä-Luosto, Finnish Lapland

I’m back in Finnish Lapland. Hopefully I can see some northern lights, but the weather is quite bad for auroras. But still it is beautiful out here, the snow is about 1,3 meters deep :)

I tried to climb a mountain near our cottage, but it was too dangerous, I almost created an avalanche. It was wise decision to turn back. I will trie to climb again, but slightly different route.

Olen tagasi Lapimaal, ilm on on nagu näha tiba pilves, udune ja lumine. Lume paksus on nüüdseks ca 1,3 meetrit. Loodan, et seekord näen virmalised ära, kui ei siis jätan virmalised rahule mõneks ajaks ja reisin muudesse huvitavatesse kohtadesse. Maailm on liiga suur, et ajada taga nähtust, mis ei taha kuidagi näidata ennast :) Aga mõned päevad on veel aega. Kõike võib veel juhtuda :)

Tundra

Image from earlier this year. Finnish lapland.
The winter is coming. Hopefully it will be cold and a lot of snow. But just in case I’m going back to lapland in march. There is always a lot of snow in winter. And hopefully auroras too.

Tali ei jää taeva. Keegi veel ootab lume rohket talve? Pilt on tehtud aasta alguses Lapimaal.

Lapland sunrise

I was hoping to see how the sunrise paints the mountains with pink color. Thankfully everything worked out fine at this morning.


Võimsad vaated on Lapimaal. Hommiku päike maalib mäed roosa valgusega. Ideaalne viis kuidas puhkust veeta :) Sügisel võib eriti ilus olla seal.

Northern Lights

Northern Lights from nowhere. That’s the beauty of visiting that far northern hemisphere. You don’t need much to see northern lights. Just small activity from sun.

Virmalised ei kusagilt, Lapimaal. Tänud Karl, ilma sinu abita ei oleks me midagi näinud :D

Finland Lapland

Hi my friends,

I’m finally here. This place truely is a winter wonderland.

The snow is really deep, about 1m, it makes hiking a great challenge, but it is fun :) Stay tuned for future images. Today the main focus is for scouting, hopefully we will see some nice pink light at evening. If we are lucky, then maybe we will see some northern lights also.
