Saying goodbye to the sun

In less than a month we will be entering the polar night season in the North Cape. Here’s what it looks like at 71˚N at 1:30 pm.

    Beautiful, but so glad I’m where we still have equal amounts of day and night. I am intrigued by the far north so appreciate your beautiful images that show me your world.

  2. Hi Erica,
    I love the north, but I am not sure if I could cope with the polar night. It is getting dark here at around 5 pm now and this is already far too early for me😉
    Cheers Angela

    Wonderful photo but not a lot of snow yet- is that usual for this time of the year?

      We have actually had snow for several weeks, and then a storm blew in, with above freezing temperatures, and melted the snow. But today we woke up to everything decked in white again. Typical for this time of year, but by January the temperatures are cold enough the the snow stays.. all the way to May🙂
