It’s high noon and the sun has gifted us a rare glimpse of itself between the distant peaks.
We have been lucky while in Northern Norway with mild albeit cold conditions. The sunshine has however been elusive and in just one week from when this image was captured the sun will no longer grace the visible horizon remaining hidden behind the mountains. One week on from then and the sun will not rise again until mid January.
I wonder what it would like to live here for a year? Would the long summer days be a comfort after the dark winter? What would it be like in summer when the sun never sets but spins around and around in perpetual circles like a yellow searchlight.
I am sure I will be back here again one day, though perhaps not for a year.
