Considerably, I have the most easy access to the Lapland area of Finland, Sweden and Norway. To me it is very possible to get to the southern parts of these countries too. If you have any place in mind (especially in the mentioned area) that you would like me to take photographs of don't hesitate to suggest it to me. I will look forward and consider to go there. Besides, the visit can get really interesting to me too.

Dome of the entrance hall (also known as the Staircase Hall), National Gallery, London (England). The National Gallery was founded in 1824 and has a collection of over 2,300 paintings from the mid-13th century to 1900. The present building in London's Trafalgar Square is the third to house the National Gallery, and was designed by William Wilkins from 1832–38. The Staircase Hall was designed by Sir John Taylor in 1884–7.
