In March I was on my first winter trip in the mountains of Swedish Lapland. I had done several long hikes in the area in the short nordic summer and wanted to see what it was like in winter. It was a great experience and everything looked so different. I got to some locations I had also visited in summer some years ago. Thus, I want to share some photos taken at roughly the same locations to give you an impression.
In the following a view of Stuor Reaiddávaggi with the rock wall of Nallo to the left.
The winter image of this scene is from a slightly different position and with a wider field of view.
Nallo looks like a pointed spike from the lower part of the valley. It is not evident from there that it has a long ridge line.
The corresponding winter scene is almost monochrome. Note, that this image is not converted to black and white. In winter conditions the easiest route is right in the stream bed.
The last two images were taken in the upper part of Visttasvággi looking south.

Stefan, stunning pictures. I am a huge fan of comparative photography!
Thanks a lot, Michael! Unfortunately I wasn’t able to exactly reproduce the perspective of the original images. It would involve a lot of planning.
