A New Phase 🌙
Taking a lift back home 👽 Do you have any weird childhood memories about UFOs or maybe dreams?

Glowy Serpents 〰️ I often get asked how do the northern lights look like to the naked eye. Well, it depends how strong they are. Sometimes they might only look like a very dim greenish hue in the sky and you need to take a long exposure photo to really be able to tell if it’s the northern light. But sometimes when they get super strong, it’s actually hard to take a good photo of them because they are so bright compared to the dark landscape. If they get so strong, you can see them dancing with different speeds and colors, it’s truly magical. During our workshop we were lucky to witness one of the strongest northern light shows that I have ever seen myself. They were so bright that I was able to take some video of them with my camera, swipe left to see it. That’s the real speed and how they look like to the naked eye if they get so strong. 👽 Video settings: Canon 6D, Sigma 24mm f/1.4 1/30, f/1.4, ISO 12k-25k Music: Jesper Kyd - Ezio’s Family
Elements ♾ A funny DNA-shaped cloud suddenly formed to the sky while we were wandering around Emäsalo with @david popa art. Hope you’re having a nice weekend :)💙
Taking it all in... 🍬 Sometimes it’s just good to take some time for yourself. After our very very successful workshop in the freezing Finnish Lapland I decided to take a last-minute flight to some place warmer just by myself a day before my birthday. Being here under the palm trees, surrounded by nature and mountains of Gran Canaria has been a nice way to really relax and recharge myself 🌿 Probably the first trip in 10 years when I didn’t even take my camera bag with me. So I’m just sharing this old photo from Antalya, Turkey with the same relaxing vibes. ✌🏼 Hope you’re having a relaxing weekend!
Facing the Universe ✨ It’s always fun to see what happens when you put your creative minds together with another artist. This time I collaborated with the fine/street artist @david popa art. He used natural earth pigments and water (same stuff that people used in early cave paintings) to paint this face on a frozen rock in -30°C. What a legend, check him out! @david popa art After that I took some photos of the masterpiece and made the final touches in Photoshop. Check out the photos and the BTS video :)
Tree of Life ✶
After hunting for the northern lights with our Polar Night workshop crew on snowmobiles, we headed to this Lapp Hut behind the Saana fell to warm up. When you’re hanging around with other creative people you just want to put your minds together to invent a new composition. We told @mikkolagerstedt to stoke the fire inside the hut to make some sparkles from the chimney while we were shooting with a long exposure. There was a mild wind that moved the sparkles so I shot from an angle that emphasised the sparkles exploding into the night sky. ✨ @kilpissafarit
Cruising among the fells of Kilpisjärvi with a snowmobile under the dancing northern lights. What an unforgettable moment ✨ @kilpissafarit
