Location: Kuntivaara, Kuusamo, Finland


Kuntivaara (at around 480 m), is one of the highest points in Finland and is home to a large boreal forest. I planned to get there for sunrise, this required a 20-minute snowmobile ride up to the top of the hill. Once up there, you are met with these unique trees that are transformed into these intriguing formations, as the snow slowly freezes in layers during the winter months.
