Amazing Frozen Trees in The Arctic Look Like An Alien World

Niccolò Bonfadini is a young photographer living in Monza, in the northern part of Italy. Since he was a child he has always been fascinated by Nature. Some years ago he discovered his passion for photography and since then he has started traveling intensively with his camera. For him nothing is more fulfilling that being out in the wilderness witnessing a sunrise or a starry sky.

Photography motivates him to get out into Nature more often, experiencing conditions and places that he wouldn’t probably have witnessed otherwise. Recently he has started collaborating with a group of talented photographer for the “Wildvisions Nature Photography” Project.

In one of Bonfadini's recent series titled “Sentinels of the Arctic”, the photographer captured images of snow covered landscape in Finnish Lapland during last winter where temperatures ranging from -40 to –15 degrees centigrade can completely engulf trees in solid ice.

“That morning I slept in my tent to watch the sun rise from the top of a hill; an eerie mist was forming around the trees, enhancing the mysterious atmosphere”, said Niccolò Bonfadini.

He said: 'Some thought they were volcanic eruptions and clouds. To me they seemed to be alive like frozen people.
'Every tree was different from the others, they had weird forms, some had snow covered branches that looked like arms.
'With such a surreal landscape, it is easy to see how many tales and legends about trolls and other creatures could have been born.'
He added: 'Both the landscape and the sky were white, there were no shades during the day. It was like being in a completely white room and it was even difficult for the eyes to focus.
'Sometimes I couldn't even notice when the path was starting to go downhill because everything looked flat.'
Despite his young age, Mr Bonfadini has photographed wildlife all over the world.
He said: 'My favourite subjects are the northern countries. I feel a sense of wonder while surrounded by desolate frozen landscapes.
'I feel small and vulnerable among the power of Nature. During those moments I really feel alive.'
He added: 'What I like about photography is that it is an excuse for going out into Nature.
'Photography motivates me to get out into Nature more often, experiencing conditions and places that I wouldn't probably have witnessed otherwise.'
