    So .. now we arrived at almost the last thread of my Lapland series. This time from Abisko in the far North of Swedish Lapland, close to the Norwegian border. By the time I arrived in Abisko around September 9, autumn had finally fully arrived.

    1: Trees, water and mountains at a small lake near Torneträsk. This is where I also shot the northern light images.

    2: Lapporten, the gate to Lapland.

    3: At the Abisko river.

    4: similar spot, slightly different light.

    5: A detail in the woods ;)

    6: A birch tree in Abisko canyon.

    7: The river again.

    8: Again another birch tree (I have so many of them ;) )
    [​IMG]

    9: The photographer being confused ;)

    10: The river bed. In spring, when ice and snow melt, there is much more water of course. I also posted spring images of the same river last year.

    11: The river in long exposure.

    Another great series from your trip to Lapland. I did not comment on all of them but I think most of them were very good. All those pictures have simple but strong compositions. Just one small criticism: I find the effect of the polariser a bit strong in some pictures (like #1 and 6 in the above series) but I guess that is a matter of taste. Overall these pictures made me want to go there.

    My guess is that the water must be quite cold though.;)

    Thank you all!

    I know also for me those images are at the edge, in particular since they are wide angle. I know I pushed it quite far here, and for some people it might be over the edge already. I also have Birch trees with less polariser effect, but did not post them.

    Great shots...these are the type of shots that I really love and you did a great job with them. I personally love the WA + polarizer effect.

    You will have to come out to Alberta, where we have a lot of similar landscape.
