Láhko National Park – a marvellous experience!

Láhko is a marvellous experience. Spectacular karst formations, ranging from millimetre-deep rills to large fissures and shafts, are seen everywhere. Rivers vanish beneath the ground only to reappear in a completely different place. Corbel’s canyon, with its water traps, caves and underground rivers, is especially interesting.

View some of my images from a trip to Láhko in August 2016.

Amazing Salten!

After my recent visit to Salten in Northern Norway I´m more than happy to publish 2 new works. I visited the mountains as well as the shores of Salten and the outcome after 5 days was 9 new images for "The Arcitecture of Nature" project. All images are photographed with a 4x5" large format camera.
