A Year in Lapland

After a year it is time to leave the Arctic Circle and head south for the winter. It has been an excellent experience to see Lapland change throughout the year with its dramatic seasonal extremes.

As well as the difference in climate there is also a difference in lifestyle, a more back to basics living. Nature is a large part of living in Lapland and during the long summer days you can make the most of it. To really enjoy Lapland you have to come to terms with the dark and cold days during the winter.

I have shared many of my photographs with you over the year but there are stills some I haven’t. I have compiled a list of the last year, a photograph for each month. Some you might have seen but many you wouldn’t have.

What month (or months) do you like the most?
