    .. just some random images taken close to the Kebnekaise mountain in Swedish Lapland. Sorry for recklessly mixing Swedish and Sami place names!

    1: My Akto again with my walking poles in the foreground, in the background from left to right: Singitjåkka, Tuolpagorni and Vierramvare.

    Ahhh, another beautiful series of pics of your trip! The difference in weather from your 'climbing Kebnekaise' thread is quite striking. The second shot is my fave of the series. [And the one of you is nice too. :p ]

    Yes, for climbing the mountain I chose the first acceptable day after days of rain, storm and sleet. I did not expect the weather to turn around like this. Wish I had been on the summit that day! As you can see on image #5, there was quite some wind on the summit, blowing lots of snow around. That culd have caused some problems though.

    Well, but there I am still fat as this is week one still ... over the whole month I lost 5 kg ;)

    To cite myself from one of my other Lapland threads:

    Tips? Hmm, wait for the right light, try to expose such that you not lose the highlights, do some selective processing to brighten shadows. ... Hard to say, it always depends on the situation. Most important is to be at the right spot in the right time (does not work all the time) and to expose properly.

    Okay, I'd have to use a pack mule to bring all of this!

    And your all your camping gear!

    Great shots.

    .. and all the food (usually for 5 to 15 days, depending on the trip and the possibilities of restocking on the way), and all the fuel and clothing since this is a very cold country in late summer. This year I actually had first snow in the first week of September already.

    But reading your lens list, you would be able to take stunning shots with those lenses! And lenses are the most important thing. Of course the full frame sensor of the 5D helps with ultra wide angle shots.

    These are amazing shots Alex! They remind me of the TV Show "Planet Earth" which is my favorite wildlife and nature documentary. Must have been a hell of a trip up there.
