This is one of the creepiest places I have visited at night. But at the same time a truly unique and fascinating setting. Follow me to The Dead Forest.


Getting here is not easy. It’s in the middle of a big bog that you have to cross. A bog is extremely wet and you always risk getting wet feet. Even in winter there can be water under the snow. When I took the photo there was a 40 centimeter thick layer of snow, but the snow had come in November before the bog had frozen, so the ground was isolated from the cold winter weather and would not freeze unless the snow first melted and it became cold again.


Fortunately, I had skis so I managed to get here, but it was tough due to all the loose snow. 


I made a camp fire and grilled a sausage before I made it all the way to the dead forest. I had seen it before, in a summer setting, so I knew it would be perfect as a foreground to the northern lights.


Being alone at a remote place in the wilderness in the middle of the night can be a little scary until you’re getting used to it. I have passed that phase and now I enjoy it to the full. But skiing right into this collection of dead trees was actually a little creepy …
