Photographer's Note

The Lumberjack’s Candle bridge (Jätkänkynttilä) was built on 1989 and it serves as a balancing element between town buildings, the gently sloping Ounasvaara Hill and the spacious sceneries of Kemijoki River. In addition to its importance for traffic and road system the bridge bears a memory from the times of timber floating and is homage to the lumberjack. On the top of two columns there is a lighting solution resembling the lumberjack’s candle, a log cut in two with a fire in between. The Lumberjacks Candle has become one of Rovaniemi’s symbols along with Pohjanhovi, Arktikum and the Reindeer Antler Plan. It's interesting that Kemijoki river doesn’t freeze completely near the bridge in the winter.
The shot was taken right before polar sunset that gave the light-rose shade on sky and snow. Hope you enjoy that and thanks for your comments. Regards.
