On my way from Sitojaure to Laitaure (both two large lakes), I encountered the first new snow after more than a week of hiking in Lapland at the beginning of September.

1: Laitaure from seen from Doaresoajvve.

2: Same spot, different weather though.

3: Of course higher up there was much more snow.

4: I set up camp at this small lake. But the shot is actually taken long after I put up my tent in deep snow. By the time I took the photo, the snow was almost gone as you can see. Winter was still hesitating if it should really show its cold side yet.

5: The next day was very frosty.

6: .. and many plants were covered with very thick ice layers. Actually, not only the plants: It took me half an hour to de-frost my boots which had 2 mm thick cover of solid ice in the morning!!

7: Even thin grassy leaves got a hard shell of ice.

The scenery is indeed stunning. As are your photographic captures of the beauty of the area. In this series I especially like #4...the combination of blue sky, grey clouds, white snow, and the reflection in the lake make for a peaceful sight.

The frosted grass looks super cool. (Well, cold, actually, but cold and cool, you know ;)).

And those clouds in 2 ... they must be the fierce looking, menacing clouds in that photo which you converted into b&w and presented in the appropriate forum, right? Here they look less fear-inducing.

Yes, between those two shots there were only minutes ;)

Because those clouds were moving away from me, they caused no fear anyway ;)
