At Lake Inarijärvi

Finland is known for its many lakes - and the extraordinary nature of this landscape becomes particularly apparent when you drive a longer distance north through this wild lake landscape. On the way to the Norwegian border, we passed a wide variety of bodies of water almost constantly: torrents and small streams that slowly fought their way through the wintry ice. And of course small lakes, large lakes, ice-covered lakes, waterfalls and and and.

This diverse landscape leaves wonderful lasting memories.

We stayed longer at Lake Inarijärvi to photograph the impressive contrasts and similarities of water, ice, snow, sky, clouds and forests. It is not surprising that you then inevitably come across the typical reindeer and sometimes patience is called for on the streets.
