Wonderful arctic lights yesterday in Inari, Lapland.
On 29.7.18 was a calm and warm night in Inari.
And a warm evening at + 31 C, 30.7!
Globe flowers are beautiful and very common in Lapland.
Hornöya island in Vardö, Varanger, Norway on my way to fish salmon in Northern Norway.

On our arctic tour to Varanger, Finnmark, Norway we stopped at Neljän Tuulen Tupa to shoot northern birds like Pine grospeak. The other were Siberian Jay and Siberian tit.
The main goal of our arctic tour through snowy Finland and northern Norway, the King Eider! The bird was shot from a floating hide in Båtsfjord, Varanger, Norway.
Hares in Vadsö, Varange, Norway. Have been traveling for several days in the very North of Europe. Today found the hares just by good luck. Tomorrow heading to Båtsfjord if weather allows. Has been very cold but sunny all week.

All Lapland was nicely covered by frost some days ago when I was driving through.
A red-legged falcon has been posing several days for photographers in Tuusula, close to Helsinki.
Shot with my new Canon EOS 5DMarkIV. I sold my 7DMII and 5DMII, both of them with decent shutter counts and received from 7DMII 800 € and from 5DMII 600 €. I paid from the new one 3200 €. Nothing has changed: camera bodies are Christmas presents and lenses are for life.
The summer is very late an colors of leaves bright.
With a fisherman, today.
Steller’s eider is the second most beautiful water bird, after King eider. Smew is very nice, too.
Common eiders in the background and male king eiders in front. Shot today in Båtsfjord, Norway. King eiders look somewhat exotic.
