Arctic Winter

Greetings from Lapland!

I came back home for a short visit to attend my grandma's funeral. We are in the midst of winter here in Lapland and the temperature has been around -20C. The winter here is so serene and beautiful; the frozen rivers, snow capped trees and the 'blue haze' we get during the day when the sun barely rises above the horizon. I feel right at home here.
