Sunset in the Swedish Arctic

Around 9 months ago, I was in Abisko, Sweden trying to capture northern lights for the first time in my life. One of those days, I decided to take an afternoon walk around the village and ended up at the lake nearby around sunset. Winter is the best time to capture sunset images as the colours are so vivid and dreamy and with a backdrop that's so neutral like arctic you're bound to get these colours reflected off of foreground. I was completely awestruck.
