It is the world’s northernmost town, and the northernmost settlement of any kind with greater than 1,000 permanent residents. It is also known for its colorful houses

Beautiful work, Yiannis. Are these places powered by oil generators?

What a great photograph of this remote place! I love the colors here as well as the diagonal composition and the sharp snow lines to capture the textures. Looks cold! But I bet these homes are pretty cozy!
