Top of the World: April 2013 Lappland, Finland

Dietmar filming Reindeer at 70 degrees North near Utsjoki Finland

Willow Grouse eating birch buds

this wasn’t the camping spot we were looking for but we made do for the night, a bit uncomfortable sleeping at an angle 
like this but at least we had a soft landing in the powder snow and nothing broke, lucked out again..

goofing around waiting for the tow truck in the morning, when I called the automobile club and gave them our GPS coordinates they just said “but there aren’t any  roads where you are”?

Black grouse lekking (curious ritual courtship fighting displays just after dawn in the middle of a frozen lake  at -20 deg.)

Another amazing night spent time-lapsing on the vast Lokka Reservoir
