#TAKEOVER : 'I'm super chuﬀed to continue my takeover of the @canonaustralia Instagram feed this week. Today, I would like to share with you a photo I took of the Northern Lights in Norway. Nothing ever quite prepares you to see the Aurora. I have spent a lot of time in the Arctic and am very grateful for the fact that I can continue to visit every year. As a photography tour guide, I run several Aurora and Ice Cave photo workshops through @iceland_photo_tours. I have seen the Northern Lights many times, but this night was quite memorable. As I gazed up at the night sky, it felt like the secret door to our private universe was swinging closed behind us.' - @serenavsworld

#TAKEOVER : 'Hey everyone! This photo is by a photographer who has inspired me time and time again, @iuriebelegurschi. When I first saw Iurie’s photos of Iceland, it felt like my heart had been hijacked and I had to go and see it for myself. That was many years ago now.
Today, I am incredibly grateful to be part of his team at @iceland_photo_tours, showing people to these magnificent places and teaching them how to photograph and to connect with the landscape. There are few people who have touched my life in this way and who have influenced my path so strongly.
Although we have completely diﬀerent photographic styles, I am always learning from Iurie and I strongly admire his creativity, vision and work ethic. This is someone whose work keeps me motivated to continually improve upon my art.'- @serenavsworld, who's taking over our account this week.
#TAKEOVER : 'This is another of my favourite photos, showing what it's like during Finnish Lapland in the heart of winter. What usually comes to mind when most people think about the Arctic is mounds of snow, dog- sledding and perhaps an Aurora lighting up the night sky.
These are generally the things you would expect to see when you’re in Lapland. However, if you venture high enough into the mountains during the midst of winter, then you might just find yourself immersed in a very strange fantasy world where wizard-like creatures rule the land.
This photo was taken at the peak of Riisitunturi National Park in Finnish Lapland. There had been very heavy snowfall over many weeks, resulting in deep snow- covered spruce trees.
The weather was constantly changing, with very fickle light swallowed by swathes of fog. It felt so unearthly to be up there in the frosty cold, without a single sound but my own breath as I stumbled through the snow.' - @serenavsworld, who's taking over our account this week.

"Falemos de tí e min
xa que vivimos.
Tí i eu nos ventos
e nos solsticios.
Tí i eu nos bosques
e nos ríos.
Tí i eu, historia
de corpos nidios.
Tí i eu, saudade
de álbores íntimos.
Tí i eu sin tempo
polo tempo que imos.
Tí i eu cantando,
chorando e rindo."

Non fai solo una fotografia con una macchina fotografica. Tu metti nella fotografia tutte le immagini che hai visto, i libri che hai letto, la musica che hai sentito, e le persone che hai amato.
