The “Blue Hour”

In the north of Norway, we have an expression that describes the special light that occurs during the polar night season. “Blåtime”, directly translated “the blue hour”. Today it was breathtaking!

Eight hours of daylight!

When the sun comes back on January 22, putting an end to the polar nights, it doesn’t waste anytime brightening our days.  Now, just 30 days later we have 8 hours of daylight!  Sunrise 7:30 am and sunset 15.30.  IMG_2485And we are grateful it is blessing us with its presence.
