It's been forever since I posted here, let's see who is still finding me in their feed. Much happened for me and each one of you, I'm sure. Hope you are well and had a good start into the new week.

One stripe and countless stars - I know that phrase is getting old but it was a magical night. Being out there in the silence, a bit of wind, lots of snow, some greenish background. Rounding it up with moonlight on those amazing trees. How could winter not be my favourite time of the year...
===
Yksi viiva ja lukemattomia tähtiä - tiedän että luitte sen jo usein, mutta tämäkin yö oli maaginen. Olla siellä hiljaisuudessa, pikkuisen tuuli, paljon lunta ja vihertävä tausta. Lisäksi nämä uskomattomia puita kuutamon alla. Miten voisikaan olla että talvi olisi minun suosikkiaika..
===
Ein Streifen und etliche Sterne - Ich weiss ihr habt das schon oft gehört von mir, aber auch diese Nacht war magisch. Dort draussen zu sein in der Stille, ein bisschen Wind, viel Schnee mit grünlichem Hintergrund. Dazu das Mondlicht an diesen unglaublichen Bäumen. Wie könnte der Winter nicht meine Lieblingsjahreszeit sein..

February 2016. Äkäslompolo, Finland.

Without moonlight, the aurora was the only light source to light up the winter wonderland scenery in Lapland. What a night!
===
Ilman kuutamo, revontulet oli ainoa valolähde ja hyvin se toimi tässä talvi-ihmemaisemassa. Mikä yö!
===
Ohne Mondlicht waren nur die Polarlichter Lichtquelle, um diese unglaubliche Winterlandschaft zu erhellen. Was für eine Nacht!

February 2016. Enontekiö, Finland.

Tail end - Yesterdays geomagnetic storm brought strong auroras early in the evening. Here is what I caught once I 'got out of the house'
===
Hännän loppu - Eilinen aurinkomyrskyn vahvimmat revontulet oli alkuillalla. Tässä on mitä minä sain vangittu kun itse 'pääsin talosta pois'
===
Hm, ich hab versucht ein Wort für 'tail end' zu finden, aber ich fand nur 'Hinterteil' smile emoticon Der gestrige Sonnensturm brachte vor allem am frühen Abend tolle Polarlichter. Als ich endlich raus konnte, hab ich eben jenes Hinterteil des Sturms festgehalten, sozusagen

Since ever I came to Finland I'm in love with these winter fairytale landscapes, especially during night time.

'Christmas Full Moon'
Yesterday, on Christmas Day 2015, those with clear skies could see the Full Moon. Last time this happened was in 1977 and we'll have to wait another 19 years to see this again.
I was driving through Southern Ostrobothnia and was lucky to have clear skies. So I took some photos; a close up, one over a lake, etc. But they all looked like 'just another Full Moon'. I really wasn't thinking to put something Christmasy in the photo at first, probably wasn't seeing the wood for the trees. But at some point it made click and I was not hunting the Moon anymore, but rather a wonderful house with decoration.

Tonight you can still see 98% Moon, looks like a Full Moon though.

Captured in Southern Ostrobothnia, Finland. Dez 25th, 2015.

Say hello to Grumpy, the master of light
As I was exploring the area from the photo below, I stumbled upon this tree and what came immediately to my mind was 'Grumpy'. He may look annoyed but trust me, he's a nice guy :)
