Fine art landscape photography of first sun over lake Muddus in Inari, Lapland, Finland

Still a few meters remain before I reach this ephemeral ice sculpture, engraved by the elements these last days. This is the first time I see it. Probably also the last. Tomorrow, snow and wind will probably get the better of this shape, transform it, and destroy it. So I have to immortalize it right now before the intense lights of our protective star disappear, once again …

    Merci beaucoup! Oui, en effet Nico, le clame fut bien présent en ce moment. Un calme absolu qui, agrémenté des ces somptueuses lumières ajoutait une touche de magie!
