Changing Colours of Uluru

As today is Australia Day I thought I would post a group of photographs from my time in the country. I wanted to find something that summarised Australia and would be reconginsed as Australian when people saw it and thought that Uluru was a great option.

One of the many things recommended to do while you visit Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is to watch Uluru change colour as the sunsets. Below is a series of similar photographs taken as the sun sets and cast its last remaining light over one of Australia’s biggest landmarks.

This post is in response to the theme Optimistic.

Winter is Coming

In Lapland winter is always coming. For a majority of the year the landscape is covered in snow and the temperatures often drop well below zero. After the Ruska period the leaves fall from the trees and the first frost isn’t far behind.

The collection of photographs below are an account of the Transition between autumn and winter.

Do you think this is a dramatic change? Is this what you would expect from life above the Arctic Circle?

Kittilä Church

Kittilä church was completed in 1831 and was the only building in Kittilä to survive the German’s Scorched Earth policy during the Lapland war in 1944. The church was designed by C.L Engel, the same man who designed the Iconic Helsinki Cathedral.

Which do you like, Kittilä church in summer or winter?
