~ Siberian Jay scouting around in snowy forest. There has been a lot of snow in Eastern Finland this year and it gave a perfect setup to take wide-angle photos. Definitely one of my favorite bird to photograph. Beautiful and very curious fella.

- Sunrise in the Finnish wilderness. I love the way thin clouds filters the sun and makes it visible and more colorful.

~ 5am and it’s still completely dark outside, I wait in a wooden hide to capture some golden eagles. After few hours of waiting I suddenly see movement in the right corner of the field and a young fox walks past me in hope to catch some breakfast. Not the animal I came there to shoot but definitely nice surprise to start the day with.

~ Female springbok looking straight into my soul. It’s actually quite hard animal to take a portraits of because there’s just way too many of them. Hard to find a single springbok to take a clean portrait without others photobombing the picture. Namibia is amazing 🇳🇦

~ Here is a collection of photos from the research station in Zackenberg Greenland. By far the most amazing trip I have ever done. It is hard to describe the place and the work @icosri do there in just one picture and caption. So if you have some questions. I’ll answer them in the comment section. @icosri #icoscapes

~ The best thing about Lapland is not the northern lights or starry skies, it’s mornings like this when the low clouds kiss the treetops of the icy forest.

~ The @icosri station is only acceptable with snowmobiles, skis or snowshoes. This was the view in the forest this morning while heading back to the fjells. Pallas is one of the northern most ICOS stations - with the cleanest air in the world (according to observations) #icoscapes

~ Snow covered @icosri station in top of Sammaltunturi fighting against the harsh winds and cold. The station measures greenhouse gases to understand climate change. Go check out the video on @icosri page to see how I got this photo. #icoscapes
