Mikko Lagerstedt

Mikko Lagerstedt is a self-taught Finnish landscape photographer. His photos of simplistic northern landscapes highlight natural and captivating elements.

"My first photographic inspiration came when I was driving to the cabin of my relative on a summer evening. After a rainy day, the sun started to shine and the fog was lifting in the fields. I just had to stop and look at this beautiful moment and then I realized that I wanted to start capturing these kind of moments. »

One of the most extraordinary things about Finland is the light. When the endless sunny nights of summer give way to the sunless winter, the Northern Lights light up the sky with their magical spectacle.

The further north you go, the greater your chances of seeing the Northern Lights: they can show up to 200 nights a year in Finnish Lapland. As for Helsinki and southern Finland, the luminous gaps of the aurora appear there around 20 nights a year; however, they are only visible if you keep away from urban lights. www.visitfinland.com

Finland is often nicknamed the country of the Thousand Lakes: this is however showing excessive modesty, because in fact there are no less than 188.000 lakes and some in the country! As some of these lakes are very large, a large part of the territory of Finland is covered with water: this is one of the most striking specificities of the country compared to other European countries. www.visitfinland.com
