Time to Light Lanterns in the Dark


Dan Felstead said...

This reminds me of something I saw on the Internet yesterday. There is a "hotel"...I sue the term loosely...in Finland that has separate rooms built right into the snow. They are glass Igloos. The only thing in each igloo are two beds. This location in Finland is far enough north that Northern Lights are consistent during the season. The idea is to rent a "room" and spend the night laying in the beds looking up through the glass and watch the northern lights. There was a night shot of rows upon rows of glass igloos light with light similar to the warm glow of your image...it was beautiful.

Dan, there is an icehotel in the very north of Sweden - Jukkasjärvi. There is an English Wikipedia article about it. I haven't been there, the farthest north I've been was Kiruna and that was way back when I was 12-13 years old, and in the summer.

Unintentional, but the "cross" against the blaze evokes in me some Christian allegory. Your title adds a hint to the story that could be written.

I noticed the cross too... And actually it might not be unintentional even from whoever designed the lantern because the photo was taken in a graveyard :)

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
