Autumn above the Arctic Circle
Posted By: Fries, 09-27-2020, 01:10 PM

When you drive north from the Netherlands trough Germany, Denmark and further you might end up in Sweden and see the autumn colors getting stronger. Above the arctic circle in the mountain regions bordering Norway the landscape is a dream for landscape photographers. Due to the Covid situation I couldn't get into my original travel destination; Northern Norway. But this was by no means a less interesting alternative. Enjoy the photo's!



1. Panorama made with two photo's on my way, hiking.

2. Same view but a bit different location

3. Covid is relevant in National Parks too.

4. Bridge near a mountain cabin

5. The Abisko river (1).

6. The Abisko river (2) with the winter trail over the river already marked.

7. The Northern Lights made an appearance but not very strong

Thanks for the explanation. It sounds stressful. I am trying to isolate to the extent possible. Our state has a very high overall infection rate.
I understand your point and what you and the other people in your state are going trough. Cases are on the rise over here too and measures to clamp down on the infection rate have yet to be proven effective enough. Everything hinges on the way we behave ourselves as individuals to benefit the society as a whole. The stress during my travels wasn't that bad. In two weeks time I only stayed in hotels for four times. The other stay's were in my own tent or a cabin whilst preparing my own food. I had lots of outdoor meals with me so I didn't have to go shopping that much. That created not a perfect 'bubble' but it did limit the risks. And keeping tabs on the information about Corona in four countries was something I was already a part of my preparations for this trip. When I am not having a holiday I work as a journalist. So I don't have that much difficulty with processing not the most upbeat information.

Seeing where you are from you had to cross even more borders to reach Sweden! Glad I was able to give you sort of a glimpse of the beauty you normally can enjoy and I hope will enjoy again in the near future.
