In Kilpisjärvi, Finland, a winter storm raged in 2017, with winds gusting up to 35 meters per second. Leaving the safety of the cabin was a risk, but the desire to capture the storm's raw power was irresistible.
I ventured into the storm with my camera, determined to reveal nature's simultaneous chaos and serenity through long-exposure photography.
The trees, particularly the mountain birches, danced dynamically in the storm's grip. Meanwhile, clouds rushed across the sky in a vibrant backdrop, but the stars remained unwavering in the night sky.
This collection of photographs invites viewers to experience the heart of a stormy winter night in Kilpisjärvi. The luminous dance of swaying trees contrasts with the radiant, star-studded heavens, creating a sense of awe and wonder.
