Photographer's Note

Combined action of frost and snow accumulation has a name in Finnish: Tykky. This phenomenon can be observed around forest line from 250 m a.s.l up to forest line about 400-450 m a.s.l. in region the region globaly delimited by Rovaniemi - Ylitornio - Kittilä - Salla - Kuusamo - Sotkamo - Pudasjärvi.

In fact, this phenomenon can also be observed in southern finland , but there is not so much hills with sufficient elevation. In Koli national Park ( and aslso in Lauhanvuori, this phenomenon can be observed.

A famous place to observed "tykky" is riisitunturi National Park near Posio, but any hills of the region above 300 meters a.s.l is perfect.

So take your skis or you snow shoes!
