Fredriksson had his digital camera pointed at Hanna Ovin—the skier in the frame—on this particular night when she sliced a two,600-vertical-foot, leading-to-base line in front of Fredriksson’s lens. The instant stuck with the photographer for many reasons.
“I chose to go with this shot since it is from the Swedish Lapland—very shut to the site the place I kicked off my career—and the standard pink light-weight from up there is dreamy,” says Fredriksson. “It’s not skied too usually. It’s certainly the province in Sweden that is the most stunning and remarkable. The mountains, landscape and remoteness it is quite wild. There is so much to check out. It’s special for me to share these stories with the rest of the environment.”
Steeped in darkness throughout the doldrums of wintertime, the Swedish Lapland lights up with spring’s thaw. Prolonged days of daylight make for marathon days of exploring, ski touring and pictures.
“Getting to function with this astounding light-weight is wonderful, but Midnight Solar is also exhausting,” says Fredriksson. “The Midnight Solar can nearly spoil a trip. You learn to deal with since you could be out there all the time with so much light-weight. You have to be clever, but at the identical time it is extraordinary to have that special light-weight. A lot of photographers dwell for that soft, epic light-weight and those people colours you get up north.”
In addition to environment-renowned light-weight and broad terrain, Sweden gives an infrastructure of Mountain Stations, affordable huts perched precariously in dream locations, that make traveling and exploring the Arctic fairly doable. The Mountain Station is a staple in Swedish alpine lifestyle. For the duration of the summertime, trekkers recurrent the modest digs throughout a multi-day hike as a result of pristine nature. In the wintertime, even so, the huts are much less active.
