Lapland garden..


hello GOy..a bit of a deceiving title as after a recent 3 day trip to Lapland id say all of the place is a garden. 24 hours day light at this time of year so i was taking pictures at 4am after coming home from a party in the forest..and bumped into these..

they loose their fur at this time of the year..the landscape is mainly forest but sometimes in the middle of the forest you come across pockets of unusual landscape..

wild Cranberry’s and Crowberry’s grow in the forest too..

and sometimes you do come across a garden of sorts..

the rivers in lapland are important..they become highways when the snow falls and there are many islands..some for partying..

a great trip..i even got chance to take a quick one of me..hehe

great trip..

agree with Fudge, lovely shots,
i love their walkways thr the bogs
i dont know Lapland but it seem clearer and brighter there at 4am than i remember when we travelled through Finland around midsummers day, we spend quite abit of time in the forests at night trying to find different owls.
i once walked a cple of miles back on my own as my o.h. wanted to stay behind for a bit longer and found the atmosphere strangely eerie but at the same time rather exiting, after a while i discovered that it was partly due to the absence of birdsong, and your senses are just totally up the creek.
maybe you werent quite in the mood for this kind of reflection though after what looked like a great party!!
