Finland is known for it’s wild beauty and vast expanses of cold solitude. Native photographer Mikko Lagerstedt uses long exposures to capture the essence of this Nordic land in breathtaking detail, including star-drenched skies and peaceful landscapes. Lagerstedt is self taught as a photographer, and uses Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop to edit his images, all of which he posts online as tutorials.
The intense serenity of his images reinforce our desire to visit such quiet, calm, and beautiful places, and soak in nature in it’s fullest. See more of Lagerstedt’s images on his Instagram page. Via Colossal:
