Finnish landscape photographer Jani Ylinampa photographed Kotisaari Island across four seasons in order to show its year-round beauty.
“The first time I took the photo of the island was in summer 2015 and I published it on my Instagram account in spring 2016,” Ylinampa tells to My Modern Met. “It went viral soon afterward and was shared on countless accounts on social media. That’s when I got the idea of taking photos of each season.”
Ylinampa hopes that his pictures demonstrate that Lapland is more than just a winter wonderland. “There’s so much to experience especially during summer and autumn, with the midnight sun and the autumn northern lights; they’re better when there is yet no snow on the ground to reflect light.”
