The sun is now setting before midnight and rising a short time afterward. What a gift!
Honningsvåg harbor, boat reflections, May 13, 2020.
But it lightens the distant horizon. 9am, Tromsø, Norway.
Dusk has descended on our arctic paradise (1:00 pm).
Divine days: Balsam for the soul.
I admit it. I’m a reflections nerd. I can’t help but take photos of nature’s impressionist paintings. And this time of year with our fantastic March blues, the reflections are magical.
If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know I am fascinated by the reflections in our harbor. On calm days, the reflections are almost exact replicas of the images they mirror. On gray days with slight movements in the water, they can seem a bit eerie. (I’ve rotated these images 180 degrees.)
When the wind is still, which is not very often, the harbor sometimes freezes over in areas. It doesn’t last long, and the fishing boats sail year-round, but when it does happen, it is a delight to study the ice patterns. Here are some images from yesterday.
