For those of us who cannot visit Finland to see this natural wonder in person, photographer Tiina Törmänens Lapland series is by far the next best thing.3-tiina-tormanen-finland-winter-min Törmänen grew up in Lapland, and while she currently lives in Helinski, she made the trek back to her hometown to capture the magical landscape of her youth. The winter wonderland snowscapes look straight out of Lord of the Rings with the twinkling lights, towering trees and massive ice mountains all set against the luminous Aurora borealis. Of course, those Northern Lights are the real stars of the showthe mystical lights swirling the sky with the most unreal cotton candy colored halos.
