This past week I've been having a blast with my family, it's holiday time here and we went to Lapland to enjoy the christmas time. Lapland is truly a wonderful place and I wanted to share with you 10 pictures I took there. You will notice there is not much sunshine and the images are blue, that is because the sun does not come up from the horizon for many hours during this time of the year near the arctic circle. It makes the place even more magical to me.
The darkness does also get to your mood though, days seem to never start and then they have already ended. By lunchtime it's dark again. I never understood how people cope up there in those loooong winters! At least the snow makes it white and creates more light. If the skies are clear at night the moon reflects from the snow and it's actually surprisingly light and easy to navigate outside. The air is so crisp and fresh,although it was mostly -5C daily, this doesn't feel too cold when you're appropriately dressed.
