I fell in love with the North a long time ago, for the snow and some skiing in the mountains.And then, for the light and the beautiful landscapes; and I kept coming back for the warm friendship of its inhabitants and the feeling of freedom while traveling on the land.

This will be my eighth participation as Ivakkak's photographer. Over the next weeks, I will post the images I like the most.
