Photographer's Note

Above the Arctic Circle in winters, the sun doesn't really get up. Where this photo is taken, in Lapland in December, there is some light from around 9:30 hours till 14:30 hours. With little sun, it's also cold and between October and April the precipitation is mostly snow. It will stay above 0c between these months so the snow lays for weeks/ months.

The roads in the west of North Finland are excellent. Very wide, the snowplough moves the snow to the sides and when you happen to lose traction, you won't get of the road because the snow on the sides keeps you on the road. At night it is very dark and on the side of the road they have red poles with reflectors on them. Looks like a landingstrip for airplanes at night. Just stay between the reflectors.
