Sentinels of the Arctic
by Niccolo Bonfadini
During winter, with temperatures ranging from -40 to -15, the trees in some areas of the Finnish Lapland get completely covered by snow and ice.
This makes for a unuique landscape, where everything is white and frozen as far as the eyes can see.
That morning I slept in my tent to watch the sun rise from the top of a hill; an eerie mist was forming around the trees, enhancing the mysterious atmosphere.

Niccolò Bonfadini is a young photographer living in Monza, in the northern part of Italy.
Since he was a child he has always been fascinated by Nature. Some years ago he discovered his passion for photography and since then he has started traveling intensively with his camera.
For him nothing is more fulfilling that being out in the wilderness witnessing a sunrise or a starry sky. Photography motivates him to get out into Nature more often, experiencing conditions and places that he wouldn’t probabily have witnessed otherwise.
Recently, he has fallen in love with the Arctic regions.
