Every nature photographer (should) know(s) that you can best take pictures in the so called ‘Golden Hour’. This is (in most places) roughly the hour before sunset or after sunrise. However, in the Arctic this is different. For part of the year there is no sunset or sunrise. During the past trip we had the first sunset of the season. This means the sun is now most of the day fairly low above the horizon, creating a very long golden ‘hour’. It’s more like a golden day really… For me definitely one of the highlights of this trip, especially as the weather was really good with lots of sunshine in most of the days.
