~dwarf~ When you stand in the midst of a shiny frozen lake, or between big old trees, or in open space at night looking at the stars... you might feel like a tiny little dwarf in a really huge world full of wonders. Let‘s take better care of this unique planet. It‘s our all(!) home. . . . . . #finland #lapland #suomi #finnishlapland #pello #valkeaarcticexperience #forest #trees #lake #frozenlake #landscape #ice #snow #winter #cold #travel #travelphotography #calm #silence #relax #clearmind #mothernature #nature #outdoor #valkea #snowshoeing #hiking #arcticcircle #pastell

~experience~ The boss knows how it‘s done. Snowmobile ride through the endless forest, campfire, lunch and a coffee in the wilderness, handfeeding kuukkeli birds. What more could you wish for? . . . . . #finland #lapland #suomi #finnishlapland #pello #valkeaarcticexperience #campfire #fire #wilderness #forest #snow #winter #cold #travel #travelphotography #calm #silence #relax #together #lessismore #mothernature #nature #outdoor #valkea #snowmobile #lynx #arcticcircle @valkeaarcticexperience at Valkea Arctic Experience

~untouched~ Fresh snow covers the surface of the frozen lake. For now, it‘s untouched, but from the day after there‘s many little and semi-big footprints - or lets say paw and hoof prints - in the snow. Rabbit, fox, deer, moose, mouse, bird... and human. Leave only footprints, not your trash. . . . . . #finland #lapland #suomi #finnishlapland #pello #valkeaarcticexperience #lake #frozenlake #forest #trees #landscape #snow #winter #cold #travel #travelphotography #calm #silence #relax #clearmind #mothernature #nature #outdoor #valkea #untouched #arcticcircle #pastell

~wait + stare~ A small little bit of green on the horizon can turn into a big spectacle. As you wait for it you can see a million beautiful stars and even the milkyway. A place with a minimum of light pollution is best. And a hot drink in this cosy restaurant to warm up after hours out in the cold is a real pleasure. . . . . . #finland #lapland #suomi #finnishlapland #pello #aurora #auroraborealis #northernlights #northernlightsphoto #valkeaarcticexperience #cottage #landscape #nightsky #snow #winter #cold #-32degrees #travel #travelphotography #patiencepaysoff #clearmind #mothernature #nature #outdoor #valkea #snow #arcticcircle #lightshow @valkeaarcticexperience at Valkea Arctic Experience

~who‘s a good boy?~ He is and he knows. :) his white fur and blue eyes fit so well in the snowy landscape and blue sky. . . . . . #reindeer #reindeers #poro #reindeerfarm #reindeersledding #finland #lapland #suomi #finnishlapland #tatuka #snow #winter #cold #travel #travelphotography #sleepy #naptime #relax #clearmind #mothernature #nature #outdoor #arcticcircle #pastell #nordic at Tatuka palvelut

~good morning~ Epeli is strong but gentle, pulling the sled fast knowing that some tasty lichen is waiting for him at the end of the ride. It wasn‘t that early in the morning anymore - sun just doesn‘t rise much higher at this time of the year. . . . . . #reindeer #reindeers #poro #reindeerfarm #reindeersledding #finland #lapland #suomi #finnishlapland #tatuka #snow #winter #forest #cold #travel #travelphotography #sledride relax #clearmind #mothernature #nature #outdoor #arcticcircle #pastell #nordic at Tatuka palvelut

~nap time~ Epeli the reindeer enjoying the sunshine at -32degrees. His thick winter coat and a special way of countercurrent heat exchange in blood vessels keeps him (and his nose) warm. His antlers grow annually starting from march/april. His funny looking hooves carry him over ice and snow like snowshoes. A very fascinating and cute animal! . . . . . #reindeer #reindeers #poro #reindeerfarm #reindeersledding #finland #lapland #suomi #finnishlapland #tatuka #snow #winter #cold #travel #travelphotography #sleepy #naptime #relax #clearmind #mothernature #nature #outdoor #arcticcircle #pastellhair #nordic

~no words~ My first aurora borealis sighting. Within seconds it got so strong, moving. For a moment I was speechless, my heart jumping, standing there alone with this spectacle right above me. Then called my brother, my parents joined, more and more ppl, all looking into the stunning sky. After a few minutes it lost it‘s intensity. But I will never loose the memory of the feeling in this special moment. . . . . . #finland #lapland #suomi #finnishlapland #pello #aurora #auroraborealis #northernlights #northernlightsphoto #valkeaarcticexperience #valkeaarcticlodge #cottage #landscape #nightsky #snow #winter #cold #-32degrees #travel #travelphotography #patiencepaysoff #clearmind #mothernature #nature #outdoor #valkea #snow #arcticcircle #lightshow #nofilter #wonder #speechless @valkeaarcticexperience at Valkea Arctic Experience

~growing gloom~ The stronger it gets the more it turns from a soft white fog into green and purple veils moving around. Remember that anatomy lesson at school about retina, photoreceptors, rods (night view) and cones (colors)...? So this is aurora borealis - and wait for it: it even became a lot stronger! <3 . . . . . #finland #lapland #suomi #finnishlapland #pello #aurora #auroraborealis #northernlights #northernlightsphoto #valkeaarcticexperience #valkeaarcticlodge #cottage #landscape #nightsky #snow #winter #cold #-32degrees #travel #travelphotography #patiencepaysoff #clearmind #mothernature #nature #outdoor #valkea #snow #arcticcircle #lightshow #nofilter @valkeaarcticexperience at Valkea Arctic Experience

~the beginning~ The first evening in finnish lapland. The air is very cold and the sky clear. Thousands of stars.... some white fog on the horizon... but is it really fog? Might also be the start of something big. . . . . . #finland #lapland #suomi #finnishlapland #pello #aurora #auroraborealis #northernlights #northernlightsphoto #valkeaarcticexperience #valkeaarcticlodge #cottage #landscape #snow #winter #cold #-32degrees #travel #travelphotography #calm #silence #relax #clearmind #mothernature #nature #outdoor #valkea #snow #arcticcircle #lightshow @valkeaarcticexperience at Valkea Arctic Experience

~ end... A short surface interval for some of mother nature‘s wonders on land. The fresh snow is super fluffy and light. Millions of perfect little icy stars. -30degrees. These trees sometimes carry tons of snow on their branches. In spring they put off their winter jacket and enjoy the short growth period during summer. . . . . . #finland #lapland #suomi #finnishlapland #pello #valkeaarcticexperience #valkeaarcticlodge #forest #trees #landscape #snow #winter #cold #travel #travelphotography #calm #silence #relax #clearmind #mothernature #nature #outdoor #valkea #snowshoeing #hiking #arcticcircle #pastell at Valkea Lodge

...less... A short surface interval for some of mother nature‘s wonders on land. Forest as far as you can see. Silence. Footprints in the snow. Pastell colours in the sky.

...forest~ A short surface interval. I love the underwater world, that‘s for sure. But also above the surface there are still many wonders of mother nature that take my breath away. Here‘s some from above the arctic circle... . . . . . #finland #lapland #suomi #finnishlapland #pello #valkeaarcticexperience #valkeaarcticlodge #forest #trees #landscape #snow #winter #cold #travel #travelphotography #calm #silence #relax #clearmind #mothernature #nature #outdoor #valkea #snowshoeing #hiking #arcticcircle #pastell at Valkea Lodge

~before the first coffee~ The dorsal „warning flag“ is up. Might be that this beautiful fish was grumpy cause it was still very early in the morning and it was too hard to get out of its coral block bed. . . . . . . . . #trigger #fish #triggerfish #balistoidesviridescens #titan #titantriggerfish #redsea #reef #coral #uwphotography #uwphoto #underwaterphoto #closeup #macro #underwaterphotography #marinelife #underthesea #marsashagra #dive #diving #scuba #scubadiving #protecttheoceans #respectnature #beautyofnature #wildlife

~kiss kiss bang bang~ Have you seen these teeth before? The titan trigger fish might reach a length of 75cm which is quite big. Usually it doesn‘t care much about us divers. Just rolling from side to side to better watch us with its funny eyes, chilling at the cleaner station or looking for sea urchin, crustaceans or coral meals.... but during reproduction season it guards its nest vigorously in a cone shaped area - well, who would not protect its babies? It attacks fast with its dorsal „warning flag“ upright and might bite with the strong teeth which can leave ugly injuries. So better keep distance and in case of an attack, swim away horizontally. . . . . . . . . #trigger #fish #triggerfish #balistoidesviridescens #titan #titantriggerfish #redsea #reef #coral #uwphotography #uwphoto #underwaterphoto #closeup #macro #underwaterphotography #marinelife #underthesea #marsashagra #dive #diving #scuba #scubadiving #protecttheoceans #respectnature #beautyofnature #wildlife
