Photographer's Note

Lapporten, Lappland, Sweden
Picture taken from the train from Narvik to Stockholm near Abisko. The first part of this trip, the Ofotsbanen (Narvik - Riksgränsen) is very impressive going along a fjord then the train reachs the pass at Riksgränsen at the border of Sweden and Norway.
Then we reach the region of Björkilden and Abisko, entering Lappland.
This curious valley is Lapporten. a U-shaped valley near Abisko which is a typical landscape of this region. The mountains on the side are Tjuonatjåkka (1.554 m ö.h.) and Nissuntjårro (1.738 m ö.h.).
