    Well, I did not take any images worth mentioning on last weekends hike (remember my frustration thread?) ... but here are some which show myself on that trip ;)

    Taken near Abisko north of the Arctic circle near the border with Norway.

    1: putting on the heavy thing

    Hey those are great. #3 is my favorite. The composition would be great if you had moved to your left about 10 feet.:mrgreen: Sereiously, the stream curving back toward the mountainous horizon is great with great color.

    What kind of bag is that you are using in the photos??

    Nice. :mrgreen:
    No, but seriously Alex, these are good shots. The landscape in the second one is stunning. And the colors are great, too.

    Hey, can you please get up early tomorrow morning and shoot the sunrise in #3 ...sun comes up on the right in that one...ja? Long lens and catch the light hitting the mountains...long exposure for a soft water effect.

    Cool...thanks :)

    That is a Bergans of Norway (cannot remember the exact type, but their top model) ... one of the sturdiest backpacks I know and about the largest. The only drawback is the weight of it empty ;)

    well, right now I am 440km on terrible roads from that place ... so I cannot make it tomorrow morning ;)

    Oh, and the sun does not come up anymore, it is just there, always ... goes on a circle in the sky.

    And I was thinking to myself: how can "the sky be pretty" in #4, with that incredible mountain view in the background of #3 ???

    GREAT photos, and really wish I could see that up close and personal!

    Thanks Alex

    Thanks :)

    Well,
    you should be prepared to get many mosquito bites then ... they are active up here whenever the temperature goes a bove freezing point .. also where you have permafrost deep down ;)

    Oh, and those flies which bite chunks of your skin off ...

    got over 80 bites in those 3 days ... about 50 of them in half an hour ;)
