The Arctic Sentinels [pic]

This picture was taken last winter in Finland, where temperatures go well beneath 0 degrees Celsius; This makes for a unique landscape, where everything is white and frozen as far as the eyes can see and surreal landscapes like this one occur occasionally.

    Sort of funny to read that temperatures go below 0˚C as if it would be much of anything. It’s just 32˚F anyway. Temperatures around where the picture was taken go annually even down to -40˚C, which respectively is -40˚F. Some years ago I was doing downhill skiing in those conditions. :)

    Those sentinels are most likely on top of a fell and they suffer of high winds on top of the freezing temperatures.
