Arctic Homage

  • Prize
    Bronze in Nature/Sky
  • Photographer
    Sergio Galan Sanchis

These photos are part of an ongoing serie that I started 4 years ago. I
try to highlight the beauty of the arctic nights as an homage to nature.

Photos 1,4 and 5 were taken in Lofoten Islands, Norway.-
The beauty of the norwegian nights starts even when the the day is
not yet over. Sometimes, the Aurora Borealis dances above the
orange line of the dusk and the moment becomes magic.

Photo 2 was taken in Tromso, Norway.-
A magic night is shining over a small house in a beach in Somaroya,
Tromso.

Photo 3 was taken in Inari, Finland.-
Inari lake is the sacred lake of Sami people. Despite the next morning
we had to start a seven days trekking with snow rackets along the
frozen river Lemmenjoki , we decided try our luck. For two times we
were about of gave up. But we kept tight waiting. And, finally it was
worthy.

I'm a passionated traveler. I try to catch what amazes me in my photographs and writtings.
